Wind Beneath my Wings

I love charms.. and hopefully that shows in my works. A few months back, I was at my usual bead shop, I saw these beautiful angel wing charms. They were so beautiful and I bought all of them off the rack! (okay.. there were not many of them left :P). When I got home, I made a pair of earrings for myself! How selfish is that.. lol! :D (okay there are more in my shop) But ain't they pretty.. I love them so much that I used them in necklaces and other versions of earrings. That's not the end of the story...

Last Friday, had dinner with my college mates. We were meeting up to discuss my coming wedding. After dinner, we were window shopping at the nearby mall on our way back to the car.. We walked pass the new Thomas Sabo shop and I saw these!!! I was like.. Wait a minute.. I have those earrings too!! Of cos the Thomas Sabo version are more intricate (with all the details of the feathers) and they cost much more! :P

Well.. I was happy with my version.. although, Thomas Sabo's version on the display case was enough to make me drool.. Sigh.. another present that I hope my friends will buy me.. I need to make a wedding gifts list.. although none of them has to do with my hubby nor our wedding.. lol :D

Btw, I totally love the Thomas Sabo shop cos they are full of CHARMS! Need to save up for some..

I have a wing with rhinestones hanging from my rear view mirror. I have always loved the patterns of wings!
