What Would You Choose?



If you could choose only a few words to be held near your heart forever what would those words be? That is what I had to decide last month. For me it was a fairly easy decision. Family, for me, means pretty much everything. So now I am the extremely proud owner of a custom designed [double sided] necklace by the beautifully talented Lisa Leonard from Lisa Leonard Designs. Lisa contacted me recently and told me how much she loved my blog. We talked for a bit over email and then she offered to custom design a necklace just for me. How could I refuse. Each piece is hand-cut, stamped and made from polished sterling silver. What a beautiful gift to yourself or someone special. The possibilities are endless because you pick what you want to stamped on it! This lady has designed jewelry for celebrities too! I feel special now. Thank-you Lisa for this wonderful gift, I will treasure it for always.

  6. That sums it up so well, Simone....
    For me, I would list my kids' initials and include Kalei... and on the opposite have eternal love inscribed.

  33. What beautiful jewelry and how generous to have one of us very lucky followers win such a unique brooch!

    My favorite is the Vintage Necklace shown on the opening page of their website.

    I can see my Mother wearing it with pride at her nursing home!

    I hope I win the brooch too so she can wear it in a hat as she loves to do! She rocks at 87 years!
