My new friend: The Jewelry Whisperer

I have a tale.
It is a story of kismet.

Once upon a time there was a girl {*ahem* me}
who decided to start upon a new adventure {*ahem* this blog}.
She moved into the land of Blogspot and laid claim to her part of the land.

{thanks, Shane!}

Seeing as the new land was a Land of Lovelies, a new friend came along quickly and said hello.
{the new friend!!}
The new friend, a red-haired madien, was a regular in the Land of Lovelies.
She was also the host of many gatherings {that's a lot of linkage!} with all the other lovelies in the land.

One day she set up a market, a place where all the lovelies could come and share their wares & trade their goods.  Something they called "bling".


The new girl wanted to play and so one day that she stumbled upon a brand new trinket in her little cottage that she knew she could share.

{this little guy needed a new home and someone to love him}
She told her new friend that she would come to the market but did not tell her what she was bringing. 

A few fortnights later, the new friend sent the new girl in the land a message saying she had a arranged for a fair market trade with another lovely in a far away place {New Jersey!!}
An owl?!  How did you know new friend? 
Did the jewelry Fairy Godmother come and tell you what I had to share?

And then it came upon her - the new girl realized that her new friend was actually: 

The Jewelry Whisperer
{everyone say "Ooooohhhhhhhhhh" with me.}

Ok, so I'm not gonna quit my day job anytime soon and get paid handsomely to write fairy tales, buuuuut, I do want to thank Melissa, my new {and oh, so close} blogger bud for being a sweetheart, saying hi after she found me on Coast-to-Coast, pimping out my audience with a July post sponsorship, and then making such a fabulous, fantastic, fatalistic (too many F words!) jewlelry swap arrangement and helping me find a new home for a long-neglected piece of bling.  *hoo, hoo!*

Sandra, my swap buddy {yo! way ova' thea'} at RedRoseVintage, I hope you like your little treasure and p.s. your baby is so, so stinking cute!!

They're super cute, I would have totally snagged them at the store if I saw them.

This was a super-fun swap.
Now can we do it with clothing, furniture, and scrapbook materials that have gathered dust? 
Can we, can we? 
No. *sigh*
Ok, I'll head over to Craigslists before I have to be featured on an episode of Hoarders. 
I'm seriously like one Old Navy bag full of clearance items away from an intervention. 

Hope you all had a great Swapportunity too.

XoXo ~ Lauren
