Thank You Della

Today when I got home there was a package laying on my kitchen counter.  I saw that the return address said "Della" and I immediately knew it was from my sweet friend Della over at Del's Shells.  I stopped and thought for a second, trying to remember if I had ordered something from her recently.  Then I tore open the package and had such an unexpected and pleasant surprise!

Inside was a beautiful handwritten note, a large sand dollar and a gorgeous necklace that Della created just for me!  My favorite shell is a Sharks Eye, so Della used a perfectly formed Sharks Eye and attached 2 colored beads, each one representing my children's birthstones.....

Isn't it divine?  Here's another shot, although I admit I look pretty bad in this photo, so just concentrate on the necklace.  I don't know how she did it, but the necklace is the perfect length too.....

Della has a real flare for decorating and I have to show you how she wraps her treasures.  The necklace came wrapped inside this cute little blue, gauze bag.  Everything was bubble wrapped and placed inside a white sleeve that she had hand stamped and then wrapped with the blue ribbon.  I have to tell you, it's a lovely presentation.

While I'm on the subject of Della, let me show you some of the new items she's created for her Etsy Shop in the past few weeks.  She's been one busy lady!

An Olive Bolo.....

Leather & Olive Bracelet.....

Scotch Bonnet Necklace......

Limpet Barrette

This leather, seashell & pearl cuff has a special history, and you should read about it here. Isn't it dreamy?  The leather looks so soft that I just want to touch it!

A barnacle & pearl ring set....

Della is so talented and I fall in love with practically everything she makes.  With Mothers Day just around the corner, you should go check out her Etsy Shop and order a treasure of the sea for the special woman in your life.

Della, thank you again for such a generous gift.  You gave from the heart and I will treasure it!


  1. What a surprise! I popped over here to see if there was a way to put your Zazzle store on my blog. LOL! It isn't even appearing for me right now, so I'll try again later...unless it's deactivated at the moment?

    And THANK YOU for the glowing review, but that wasn't my intention. It was a gift from the heart.

    The heart holding the crystals on your necklace should face the front. Give the chain a little twist and it should flip back in place.

    Anyway...enjoy your Mother's Necklace!

    OMG I can't believe that sand dollar lost that much MORE sand in transit!!! You would think after 10 years for heavens sake that it would be empty by now!

    1. I was surprised the sand dollar held that much sand also.

      The zazzle store panel is working for me. Let me know if you still don't see it.

  2. I really like Della's style of Jewlery. I have looked at her sight before. She does great work. That olive bolo is cool. I would like to meet the artist behind the magic. Do you know if she ever shells around my way? Great post Kim!

    1. That Bolo is totally your style Brian. I believe she does get down to Sanibel occasionally. She does live in Florida. I'll tell her to give you a shout next time she's down your way.

  3. Awesome post!! Nice blog and set up!! Have a great day and keep up the good work!! You are invited to check out or follow my blog anytime!!

  4. Love the barrett. So unusual. Seashells are so pretty.

  5. That was so sweet! What a nice surprise! The necklace is absolutely gorgeous!

  6. I love getting surprises in the mail. What a lovely necklace. You have a great friend.

  7. That is a wonderful surprise! And such a beautiful necklace too! Bravo to the artist! :o)

  8. That really is a nice presentation. Makes the package so much better.


Thanks for taking the time to stop by. Please leave a message because I love to hear from you!
