As I mentioned in a previous post, I was supposed to get my Mother's Day present from the Harrisburg Art Festival. I didn't really find anything that made me get overly excited, and I had decided that I was just going to have a nice dinner be my present. Then, I saw exactly what I wanted on Nathan Lawrenson's blog.
I am a very unique person, and have my own taste in stuff. I'm not a typical 28 year old that is in to all the trendy clothes, purses, jewelry, etc. I'm very much an individual, and I like finding things that are not what other people can easily buy. Nate posted about a jeweler who makes unique pieces, and personalizes them for her clients. She is also very reasonably priced. My present is going to be from Lisa Leonard, and is this necklace that you see in the picture. It's the "teeny tiny initials" necklace. I will have two little circles on mine, and one will have a "m" that stands for my daughter's first name, and the other will have a heart to stand for my love for her. I'm also a huge pearl fanatic, and she has a place where you can customize your jewelry, so I asked for a couple extra pearls to be added to mine. Plus, she gives you a pretty rad discount for your first purchase (it was like I didn't even have to pay extra for shipping that's how much I got off). I'm hoping she does more fund raisers where she gives a percentage that she sells to the Lawrenson family for Cystic Fibrosis.
So, there's my Mother's Day present. It's simple, it's unique, and it's completely ME. I totally LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it.... and I will definitely be purchasing more of her necklaces soon-ish! Check her out!!
