ok, sorry for the quick back and forth here. it doesn't appear the previous vendor http://www.bouquetjewels.com/ is still carrying the same 'star of the sea' jewel, though they do have a sale on the remaining sand colored starfish if anyone is interested: http://www.bouquetje... of the sea.htm. they are also carrying a skinnier hawaiian beach collection starfish - again if anyone is interested http://www.bouquetje..._p/starfish.htm.
because the thread originated around the 'star of the sea,' I found it on another site http://store.thebrid...bjstarfish.html. in the meantime, mochamakes3 PMed me her address, which was in canada (I'm in texas). the store not only offered to ship directly to canada for only $6 US but when I mentioned that her wedding was only a few weeks away, they dug through their supply and found a clear one in stock (they had previously thought they'd be waiting on a shipment until mid-next week). I figured it was a sign that mochamakes3 was due to have a sparkly starfish in time for her wedding and put through the order ASAP. hockeymom, I do apologize, but it sounds as though you had other plans. I really hope it's ok.
SO now picking up where dc22173, the CLEAR starfish thread will be continued as below. ChristieAnn, sorry, but your dates are too close to other ceremonies to be added, and NurseM you have been added. I think you mentioned someone else had been left off - please let me know. also, if upcoming brides can please be sure to update with their current city and state (so we can plan for sending across borders), that would be great.
please keep us up-to-date with the condition of the starfish, as that seems to be an issue after numerous voyages. ; ) finally, mochamakes3 will be adding a travel journal and will send with the starfish to NurseM after her wedding.
