Eclectic Love 1: More Sweet Strawberryness

For this week's Eclectic Love, I knew I wanted to feature something strawberry related, and I knew I wanted it to be a necklace, so I turned to Etsy once again in search of the perfect strawberry necklace. I wasn't sure what it looked like, but I knew exactly how it shouldn't look. I was several pages of incredibly cute, but not what I wanted, necklaces when I started giving up hope. Just as I was giving up, I encountered this:

It was only when I saw this one that I realized how the others weren't right: they didn't have that magical strawberry shine. Even though some had the perfect ruby red colour, none of them had captured the light emitting qualities that only strawberries have, which made me all the happier when I found this one. 

Have you ever searched for something not because you knew what you wanted but because you knew what you didn't want?



  1. i agree with you, this is the perfect strawberry-related necklace! and smart searching methods/criteria too :)

  2. Oooh that is the perfect strawberry jolly rancher red!!!

  3. i love that strawberry. its so cute! :D

  4. Hmm, I am drooling with this strawberry!
    Love that necklace, darling!

  5. hello darling!

    in the first hand, im glad to hear your words.
    in the second say you that you can participate in the giveaway. why not? you dont like the dress? if is this the problem, i'll understand, but if no... the giveaway is opened for all the world!

    the third: the bracelets are of a store called Stradivarius (i dont know if you know it, but is a good store).

    Very kisses from http://sweetsyte.blogspot.com/

  6. It´s really cute *.*

    I think sometimes this happen by me when I want buy clothes... I know what i don´t want...But not what I want xD

  7. No, I've never done that, but I can see the attraction of this shiny strawberry. xo

  8. I always shop with a purpose in mind. Unfortunately, I don't have the patience for that. But I am glad that you were able find what you were looking for!

    BTW - I know how frustrating a kit lens can be, but there are some good lenses out there that are reasonably priced. What kind of camera do you have?? I might be able to suggest some good ones for you!

  9. Oh, how gorgeous of you to say so! That's a nice comparison.

    And btw, you remind me of that piece of watermelon that waits for me in the fridge... ;)

    And I just realised that strawberries are composed of the same colour, too, hihi.
