it for her for Christmas and there it sits, empty and
waiting. Every time someone comes over they have
"Just Got!" to see her room for all I do is rave about
the choices I made for it and one of the first thing they
all do is grab the box and gush over its old fashion charm
and then they open it. Empty.
"Hum, Nice Jewelry box there Michelle or is it a paper
Yeah, yeah, go ahead and chuckle, everyone is a
comedian at my house. I did have plans to get her some
thing to go with the box to celebrate her first Christmas but
my wish list of items to buy her grew really long really fast
and I not only ran out of time I ran out of money. I kept
telling myself that she is still a baby and I have years to
help her get a little collection and what is the big deal
anyways. If I had not bought the box it wouldn't have
even been an issue but people have to see what is in
box sitting around and Women in general can not pass
up the change to peek inside a jewelry box no matter who
it belongs too. John told me to just put that dang thing in
a drawer until she was older but he had no idea how long
I searched for that and how long I have waited to have a little
girl to get one for and I just can't bring myself to do it. My
choices are to no longer allow people in her room ( right!)
or to fill the box or the last choice, get some new friends
who don't tease me so much!
They say kids can be cruel! They never met my friends!
I decided to fill it for hey, I have a perfect excuse, isn't
there a wonderful little Holiday called Valentines around
the corner that is meant for things like Jewelry? Why
John, I wouldn't be a very good mother if I didn't rush right
out and buy her a piece of Jewelry to put in that dormant
Jewelry box. Besides, if I am looking for her I won't be looking
for myself and presenting you with a list a mile long. Now you
might luck out and get a list that fits on one page! Now it
didn't take much to get Johns okay for the search and I always
get to the mail before him so it isn't like he will see the bill.
( fingers crossed) so I started to look. I almost feel bad for
men now, for do you have any idea how hard it is to pick
out jewelry for another person? Good thing John has me
around to present him with detailed shopping lists for
every holidays for I wouldn't want to be him if he stayed
from the list. I tried a few sites dedicated to children's
fashions and Jewelry but I just didn't like what I saw. I
wanted something that would be a collectors piece for her,
something to have forever to remember. Something she could
wear as a young girl and then as an adult and a person could
someday say to her, "Hey, that is such a neat piece, where
did you get it?" and for her to reply, "I have had this forever,
my Mother got it for me when I was a baby and it has always
been my favorite!"
caliber. Then I came across Tiny Tags Designs. How dang adorable.
They have pieces for everyone starting at children and all
the way up to Mom and more. Everything is personal, so it
means something special to every single wearer and it is
so delicate and well, tiny, it would make the perfect gift
for anyone of the female persuasion for face it we are all
delicate butterfly's! Tiny Tags makes their jewelry with
memories in mind and that is what they celebrate. Your
to add it to my own collection I thought it would be a special way to celebrate Rowan and her siblings. She loves her brother to death and in her 7 little months she has already developed a deep bond with him and I know it will last them a lifetime
for with their 16 year age difference she looks at him as if he is a Hero for no matter what is going on she knows he is going to walk in and brighten her day. He is so protective of her this special attachment will
only grow and I feel sorry for the first little boy who picks
on her in a school playground. Boo may be furry but she is
also family and like a Sister to Rowan. Where every
Rowan goes Boo is right behind. The only time I can
separate them is to put her in her crib and even then
Boo jumps like Tigger the Tiger to try to weasel her way in.
One of these days she is going to find a way in there and then
it is all over. I wanted the necklace to represent her and her
family and be something she could always look back on with
love. It needed to be perfect and special and Tiny TagsDesigns met
that challenge and delivered more then I could ever ask for!
Each piece that Tiny Tags Designs makes is hand stamped
and crafted out of sterling silver. Hand Polished with care
and on it bears the name, date, phase or initial of your
choice so the necklace means something special to
each owner. The owner takes pride in her work and you
can tell and so have others for her items have been featured
in such places as US, the View and Tot Trends Magazine.
She has a large collection of pre-made items or offers you
made to order for your own touches and I adore the ones with
the swavasrski crystals or birthstones in the heart. She has
items for every occasion and style and even those made just
for little girls so I can really fill up Rowans box! They come with
a lovely chain and I found the chains delicate and sweet. You
can also add spacers or charms and truly turn your item into
something one of a kind! Anyway you slice it and whomever
the necklace is meant for, Tiny Tags Designs is a stamp above
the rest and I am proud to have it be the first item in Rowans
little Jewelry box!
