One last detail before I launch into my pre-wedding parties. I’ve got to recap my bridal shower, bachelorette party, rehearsal, rehearsal dinner, and, of course, both my weddings. But before that…charms!
I got my bee charms in the mail from Mrs. Seal. She sent them to me in December. I was not as punctual getting my charms to Miss Warbler. (I’m sorry!) I opened the package with delight.

But there were other charms, too! Following the lead of other bees before me, I went to Etsy and asked a seller to make a kettle especially for me. Sweet and Savory Trinkets saved the day.
Making a kettle in miniature version is no small task. Apparently, the handle gave her some trouble, but she managed it. Finding a hardworking seller who will try their darndest to get you exactly what you want is apparently commonplace on Etsy. If you’re looking for another route to what you want outside a physical store, I highly recommend Etsy.
After I sent her a pic of my moniker for Weddingbee, she sent me back a picture of the charm she’d created. It was perfection. I purchased it and an additional charm for one of my bridesmaids, BM Law, who loves red velvet cake.
