Like a Kid In a Candy Store

Seattle was such a great trip and I loved staying up into the wee hours of the night just chatting with Lauren (and little Riley was always by our side).

One night, we went out to dinner with our dear friend and the oh so talented artist, Irene Wood.  Before going out, I insisted we go over to her house to get a personal tour of her jewelry line.  I really truly was just like a kid in a candy store, except that I may have squealed more then the average child.  I mean can you blame me?  This was my view…

I jumped for joy (literally) when I found that Irene’s History and Industry line has expanded beyond necklaces to include bracelets.  Lauren got this fab emerald green bracelet…

I had a hard time decided what bracelet to go home with…

But ultimately, I chose this one because I loved the shapes of the beads…

Now for the necklaces, I did fall hard for this mint number…

It was the perfect match for my nails…

But this necklace could not be sold to me at this time because it is exclusive to Irene’s sale coming up on April 10th!!  Get your wallet’s ready because she only has three of this mint number and it is beautiful!!  She will be selling a bunch of beautiful pieces at great prices at the sale – I highly recommend writing April 10th down on your calendar!

I didn’t walk away from the experience with just a bracelet; I also got this awesome necklace…

I absolutely love my necklace!!  I already wore it yesterday and I got three compliments on it. The person who can wear the jewelry like no other, is the absolutely fabulous and effortlessly fashionable creator of History and Industry, Irene Wood.  Look at the outfit she just threw together for dinner.

So chic!!  If I had all the time in the world, I would never ever be able to come up with something that cool.

After I was sufficiently hyped up on the candy beads, we headed out to Delancey’s in the Ballard neighborhood.  I had just finished “A Homemade Life” by Molly Wizenburg, a fabulous fast read and the author owns Delancey.  It was so delicious and it had such a warm inviting feeling to the place that we ended up closing it down.

Thanks ladies for such an awesome trip!!  We missed you like crazy, Anna!!
