There was a knock at the door, and the dog launched herself from the stairs at the door, barking. Quickly locking her in the kitchen, I opened the door to the happiest postman in the West (Country).
“Good morning Miss Constantine! How are you today? I didn’t think you would be in, but then I thought you probably wouldn’t go out in the snow!”
Seriously. I have The Jolly(est) Postman ever. He’s always so chirpy! It makes me wish I had more parcels and letters delivered. (You should totally send me cards and letters and presents and stuff. It would make him even more happy!)
He gave me a little package, and I ran upstairs to tear it open. Out fell a letter, a business card and a little box, tied with string.
How cute is that?
There was a letter from Miss V, who I had asked to choose something from her relaunched Etsy store for me that didn’t involve tea in some way, and inside the box were two necklaces and a pair of earrings. I’m dead special. (No, really. She said that. Well, sort of.)
First out was this initial necklace, also known as “You Give Love A Bad Name” because there are not very many quotes to do with names that are not rubbish.. Sarah sent this one in case I forget that my name is not Ayley.
Next up, You Hold The Seven Keys To My Soul – its a song lyric don’tcha know
Finally, the matching earrings, called Maybe Some Tiny Shiny Key Will Wash Up On The Shore which are so dainty!
I love all of these pieces. I’m not just saying this because Sarah is my friend (and has kept me entertained at my dull dull dull temping job) – the necklaces are a perfect length to sit nicely (not too long, not too short), the items are nicely made and if you wanted specific charms on the necklace, you just have to ask (the initial necklace’s charms I have are different to the ones shown – just send her a message and she can tell you more!)
Why are you still reading this bit anyway? Head over to Sarahs Etsy, currently called Jewellery Shaped Things – and if anything takes your fancy, why not use the promo code HEYITSHAYLEY to get 10% off (why that? Because it amused Sarah. She’s easily amused. This is why we’re friends)
You really do have a nice postman, mine just winks, or tells me he’s sick of the house…or just doesn’t bother!
Gorgeous jewellery, I need pennies so I can buy some bits from Sarah!
Lovely, lovely stuff from Sarah! And I haven’t seen my postman in about a week,,,,think he is buried under the snow :-(
I am hilarious, you love it. Gorgeous post, lady!!
I love everything Sarah has made, these are all so pretty! Damn, she’s a talented lady!
(also your postman souns ace!)
In my head this is called ‘Hide the credit card from essbeevee’. Ha.
