Some new bling.....

My sisters in law gave me a gift card (for my birthday back in March) to a Brighton store. Since I have to drive into town, I just hadn't gotten around to going to spend it, until today. I decided before I went that I would spend it on a watch. One with a LARGE face...my eyes don't see as well as I used to! So boy, did I have fun looking at the eye candy in that store. Oh my goodness!!!


I was good and stuck to my goal, however....and this is what I got!! It's fairly inconsistent with my character....I tend to stick with the practical, the thing that goes with most everything I have, fairly tailored kind of accessories. But today, I bought a watch that has butterflies on it!!! They "float" around in between the crystal and a piece of glass.

I am going to enjoy wearing this!! Here it is...the Varna watch!while there, I "turned in" a bracelet that had broken so that they would fix it. I don't even think they are going to charge me for the repair! If they do, it won't be much. They told me they will replace your watch battery for a couple of dollars! wow, they seem to have fabulous customer service!!! And you can make a Wish List to share with others of what you'd like to have....hmmm.....

I would have chosen that watch too. It is so beautiful and I bet you will receive many compliments when you were it. What a nice gift to you!!

Pretty, pretty! I've had a love affair with Brighton for years and years. My good friend gave me a beautiful bracelet a couple of weeks ago for my birthday. I never thought of posting it.

You might have just convinced me to wear a watch! Yours is beautiful! :P

So blessed! said...

Love the butterflies. I usually walk through and admire all the prettys from Brighton, but never buy anything. Get overwhelmed!

I love Brighton and I love your watch! I have a Brighton watch that I purchased at least 5 years ago and I wear it almost everyday. Great purchase! Have a great day!

Very pretty and it will indeed go with everything! I always love to browse in the Brighton store but haven't purchased anything. Hopefully someday I'll get the chance...

Ohhhh...I LOVe the Brighton store! It's good thing it's 2 1/2 hours away or I would be in trouble. I have a big red leather key faub from there that I have had for about 6 years and I LOVE it! Your watch is lovely, by the way.
