My Etsy Buy

Leather Gator Embossed Cuff Bracelet by Richard Moorer

I was shopping around for a good quality, not-terribly-expensive leather cuff. I wanted something that had a little bit of an edge to it without being too Sons of Anarchy (though I would do most anything for Jax Teller, don't get me started on that guy!). While the Etsy shop has an eclectic grouping of items, I loved the leather work & especially this Gator Cuff.

With the few clicks of the keyboard & a few days of shipping, I had my bracelet. And it was too big. My fault, not the artists. With just a simple request, he was kind enough to fix the bracelet for me so it now fits snugly.

Let me just say the bracelet is absolutely beautiful! Richard was awesome to work with & I have made the bracelet a wardrobe staple. I'm also loving the alligator key fob (not pictured) which is nicer than some of the very expensive designer brand fobs I've owned in years passed.

The top of the Cuff

The inside with artists signature & original piece number.
I love this added bit of detail!

Fits nice & snug!

In Florida, Flamingos Deliver Baby Girls

That was the theme I came up with for my sister's baby shower. My sister is a lover of all things pink & girly (even her engagement ring has pink sapphires!), while I am the blue sister (my engagement ring is a tanzanite!). It was only fitting for her baby shower that these vibrant pink birds adorn everything, including the invitations & diaper cake!

Well, this set is for my sister & even though her little girl was born in Pennsylvania, I'm pretty sure a Flamingo made the trip for her!

includes one of each color

Also available individually ($12)

Drawn Butter is Extra

I am a Florida girl, but when it comes to lobster, I'm a fan of the cold water variety. One Fall, many moons ago, the Myer family took a camping trip to New Hampshire. During that trip, we got to visit Santa's village, dodge skunks, do some trout fishing & enjoy the biggest Maine lobster in Maine. Surely, Mom has the pictures of that fantastic crustacean.

This onesie is a tribute to my favorite ocean delicacy - a shiny red lobster set on an ocean of turquoise. Shinier & more blue in person! Draw your own butter.
