And a bag this cute and this red, is just begging to be drawn up into a little heart for photography purposes.
I'm also still learning the craft of properly thanking someone for such lovely gifts. For instance, my mom was visiting this last weekend...and I didn't even pull it out and show her. There should be a mother-daughter photo of my mom and I together while I wear the pretty necklace. But...we were too busy visiting, playing with the kids and enjoying the long weekend.
So I'm wearing it today...and it even inspired me to forget my stuffy nose and pull myself together enough to take a decent picture of myself showing it off. Afterall, I ought to have a decent headshot on here so you can know what I look like. (Thank goodness for the timer feature on the camera...because it turns out my 3-year old is not very good at framing and taking pictures.)
Thanks, Mom! This is the perfect necklace to dress-up my typical T-shirt and jeans wardrobe...and also to look classy for the days when I really dress up.
Now help me show my mom a little thanks by heading over to her blog and giving her some comment love on her tutorial for this lovely little jewelry bag (and necklace) she sent for my birthday.
