Perfect Mama Gift

Are you a mom? Do you know one? This is something you will want to see! I have the perfect gift for a mama you know or even for yourself!

My new necklace by Forever Anniversary is a sound wave of a clip I recorded of my boys!

How amazingly sweet is that? This has got to be the ultimate keepsake!

Visit here for their custom soundwave necklace.

They have lots of unique and customizable jewelry options that are all stunning. I think they would all make amazing gifts. I personally adore the soundwave and all it represents for me, so I can vouch that any mama would love to receive one! 😉

My husband recorded my 1 year old saying “mama, mama” and then my 6 year old says “we love you.” I find it so sweet that I haven’t stopped wearing this since I got it!

It’s made of steel, and just gorgeous. The simplicity of it is stunning with any outfit. I love that it’s my little secret as to what it really means. 💙

Here is the clip of my boys, just so you can hear (not much to see) what I gave them to customize this.

You will not be sorry if you visit Forever Anniversaryfor your next gift or treat!

Xx, Jess

*I recieved this necklace from Forrever Anniversary in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own! 😘

Antique Treasures

My grandmother just sent me a box of antique jewelry and doodads!  I was so excited last night to rummage through all of the sentimental pieces.  I’m not sure what I am going to do with all of it, but I have some creative ideas going.  Here is a peak at the goods:

The island covered in all the treasures.

I really loved this little tray.  My grandma said it was very old.  I thought it might look cute in the bathroom when we get in refinished.

This box was special because my uncle made all of these turqoise and jade rings and pieces.  His sign is a paw print and is engraved on the back of each piece.

Exciting huh?  I will let you all know what I do with some of the pieces… I can feel the creative juices flowing…

Owls Make A Comeback

January 29, 2009 at 4:34 pm (Tid Bits) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

I recently found a necklace in a box of childhood stuff that I used to use as dress-up jewelry when I was a kid. The necklace is a large owl. It was so weird and interesting when I was little that I had to get the necklace out and do some research. Come to find out, the necklace was very popular in the 70’s. Many designers had versions of the owl pendant necklace, each looking a bit different. The sad part, however, is that my owl is missing it’s feet. The parts are connected with rings, and mine has fallen apart. I have the body, but need to reattach it. Maybe with some more searching I can find his poor missing feet. Here is what mine currently looks like.

I think the necklace is so cool even without the body that I am determined to wear it! Here is a vintage owl with his whole body intact, but in a more silevr color:

A little more research led me to find that these necklaces are regaining popularity, both vintage and reproductions. Etsy has some versions for sale:

Ebay also has many versions for sale:

So, go ahead, jump on this owl bandwagon- again! 🙂
