New Necklace and Pretty flowers

Mother's day is just around the corner...and being the Mother of 4 kids I feel like it is "my" day. :) My son Gage is unable to get me a gift by himself  so I thought I would help him out and buy myself something from him. I saw these personalized necklaces on Etsy and wanted one really bad...and I just knew this is what Gage wanted to get me (LOL)

A lady on Etsy made this all I had to do is e-mail the picture.

I was so impressed with the quality workmanship and how pretty and sparkly it is. On the back it says, "I'll hold your hand for awhile..but your heart for always". She will personalize it with whatever you want it to say.

If you just know your child would want you to have one too you can get one here. I love mine so I thought I would share. :)

I also thought I would share some of the beautiful flowers I have been enjoying. I was so excited to see my first roses of the year blooming!

Fresh cut roses in the house make me happy!

I was happy to bring some snowballs in the house too.

My recently planted annuals are just loving this beautiful weather we have been having!

The yellow tree in front of our house is blooming...

It is such a beautiful time of year!

Thanks for visiting!

What a beautiful gift from Gage Sandy. Of course he has his mother's taste [wink].

What a great piece, Sandy! I love the picture you chose, too. It fits it so nicely. Your flowers look great! I'm looking forward to getting my rose bush {maybe this week} for a nice open spot in front of our condo.

Oh Sandy that necklace is beautiful and the picture of the kids is great. I can see why you would want that. Your garden is beautiful and I love the whimsy too. The shoe planter loved that!!! Thanks for sharing.

Beautiful post, Sandy. You definitely deserve that special the saying on the back, too.

Fran said...

I love your necklas so much. I really want to get one of my poms since they are my kids. I want to write on the back " Whoever said diamonds were a girls best friend, never had a Pomeranian" but I don't know if all that would fit, I'll have to look into it. Your garden looks so pretty even prettier in person. Thanks for the rose you gave me tonight it looks cute in my kitchen.

Oh gosh, how beautiful your necklace is Sandy! What a sweet treasure to cherish for always. Gabe (and Mom) have good taste. :)
I'm loving your pretty flowers, too - happy May and Mother's Day!

Thank you for sharing this with us, the necklace is priceless and that saying on the back is lovely. The garden looks beautiful and that yellow blooming tree is gorgeous and so different. I never saw one.


Lady Pamela said...

Ok, I need one, too. All I have to do is find a good photo. Not so easy because I don't take very good ones. I am going over the check out the vendor right away.
Thanks so much.

A beautiful necklace and so sentimental. Something you will enjoy forever!

Your flower photos are all so pretty. My roses are just beginning to bloom as are the lily of the valley but the hydrangea have a way to go.

Happy Mother's Day!
