Inspiration and a bit of luck

I know I already posted today, but I'm excited about this :D A little while ago, I entered a giveaway at Oops, I craft my pants. I usually don't enter giveaways unless I'm really excited about the item, and I was really excited with this one. I saw this..

And WANTED. Really badly. To enter the giveaway I needed to visit the shop and choose my favorite item. I thought for sure this gorgeous piece would be my favorite, but it had a very close competitor.

Isn't it gorgeous? Lilies are my all time favorite flower!

I insisted them in my bouquet, even though lilies aren't exactly winter flowers (We got married December 08). ANYWAY! I loved the necklace so much, I immediately set out to find something similar.

This was the best I could do. Ugh. I planned on making a bracelet with this tiny charm, but then I found out that I actually won that gorgeous necklace!!

It came in the mail today. :)

In pretty little packages!

It's so much prettier in real life! 

And even prettier on. 

Because I won the brooch, I decided I could afford to buy the other one I wanted. :) I thought of it as a two for one deal!

I can't even tell you how much I love these. I feel gorgeous wearing them (even though they didn't exactly match my outfit today...). And the best part? They both double duty as pins, so I can pin them onto other accessories! What a brilliant idea. 

If anyone is interested, these two pieces came from the Fancy Findings etsy shop. Aimee has such gorgeous pieces, I highly recommend her shop! She has beautiful pieces of jewelery and even wedding accessories!

Note: I was not paid or asked to write this review. I was simply thrilled with my pieces and wanted to tell the whole world about it.
