Cyber Monday - Kylie Parry Studios

My Cyber Monday shopping has been focused around Etsy for the most part.  I found this morning, as I perused the online offerings, that I must have done all my "big-box" retailer shopping on Black Friday.  I was ready for something more personal- something handmade!  Etsy never fails to deliver, and today it was made only sweeter with some stores offering discounts on their already reasonable prices for quality goods.

There is one shop in particular that I found myself repeatedly drawn to today- Kylie Parry Studios.  I initially found this wonderful treasure of a shop because of the beautiful, modern dog bone ornaments that can be customized with the name of your dog.  Today only, Kylie is offering 20% off regular prices (the prices in her shop reflect the discount already!), so these sweet bones are only $11.20 each!

While I adore these dog bone ornaments, and would adore one of each for Ana and Blue, I must admit that I fell just as much in love with these owl ornaments below.  Immediately, I thought to myself that these would be wonderful as necklaces & started trying to decide which would pair with more outfits!  These owls are only $12.80 after the 20% Cyber Monday discount!


At the same time, I saw this wonderful Bee's Knees ceramic's just amazing!  I love the honeycomb detail on the goldenrod colored pendant, and the accent of the bronzed bee!  This necklace is only $14.40 after the 20% discount, and it comes with the sweet little bee accent and the chain!

I knew that at least one of these items had to be mine, though it is unfortunate that all could not be!  After rigorous discussion with one of my friends over which owl ornament/pendant would be best, I finally decided on the bee necklace and the rust colored owl!  I am going to make the owl into a pendant and use the chain from the bee necklace so all I have to buy is the jump ring for the owl- I think they both are going to be amazing!!!
