Merry Christmas to ME!

About 2 years into our relationship Louis stopped shopping for gifts for me other than a bottle of wine here and there for Mother's Day. I could wallow in self pity when I see friends flashing their shiny new gifts from their spouses.... or I can just buy things for myself.

Yeah, I'll just buy stuff for myself.

This year I designed myself an Origami Owl living locket for Christmas. I LOVE it. (If you've never hear of them, Origami Owl is a newer, jewelry designing direct sales company.)

Here's how I built it:

The locket:
It's sterling silver, about the size of a nickel, and costs $20.

The chain:
18" silver ball station chain. Costs $8.
The charms:
Birthstone girl charms in June and July, a diamond ring for marriage, and a wine glass because, well, you know me. Cost $5 each.

Pretty cute gift for this mama for just under $50. If the ladies could pick something out for me, I think it would be something like this. Merry Christmas to me.

I like this a lot! Yes, the ladies definitely would pick this out - wine glass and all. "Mommy! Your wine store is closed, what're you gonna do?"

I'd get the grandama locket, the peace sign, the wine glass and the paw print.
