Im not usually one to make spur-of-the-moment purchases, but I found 2 perfect garters on etsy (thanks to Miss Buttons’ Post about garters!) that I am in love with!!! The first one is blue with a hummingbird brooch. I LOVE hummingbirds. MY favorite Wilco song is called Hummingbird and I have been on the lookout for some hummingbird jewelry for a LONG time. This garter is awesome!!! The second one is a light blue and white lace garter with a claddagh charm. Im very Irish and have worn a claddagh ring since I was 12. I wanted to wear a claddagh on my wedding day, but my ring would look weird on my right hand next to my engagement ring so this is the perfect way to wear a little bit of my heritage!!!

Beautiful garters, thanks for sharing it here on the Bee!

Those two are real beauties… I’d wear the Irish one though, and maybe use the hummingbird jewelry on my bouquet somewhere?
Heres what I found with just a basic search – http://www.google.com/products?q=hummingbird+brooch&price1=&price2=25.00&lnk=prsugg&show=li

Thanks for the input Cybele! I think you might be right since it has more to do with who I am as a person. I wonder if I could order that hummingbird brooch from the woman who makes the garters? Also, thanks for the extra research for me!
