I am thankful for you. Each and every day for the last 16+ years, I’ve gotten to make pretty things. I get to do what I love, and help families with their lovely celebrations. I have the very best job in the whole world because of YOU. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for allowing me to create sparkly things for your special events. I can never truly put into words how very grateful I am for you.
I wanted to make you something sweet and fun and lovely. Here is a little thankful free printable for you on this beautiful Thanksgiving week. You can print it on a regular 8 1/2″ x 11″ sheet of paper or photo paper. It prints out to fit in an 8×10 frame.
You lucky duckies, your birthstones are classic pearls and gorgeous moonstones! What a beautiful combination.
I can’t help but love June—that magical time of year simply bursting at the seams with weddings, anniversaries and graduations. Why not make an impression as dazzling as the summer sunshine with this month’s official birthstone: the simple, chic and always classy pearl!
It makes perfect sense the especially social-centric month of June is associated with the pearl. As Jackie Kennedy, former First Lady and legendary fashonista icon, so eloquently put: “Pearls are always appropriate.” Needless to say, I wholeheartedly agree with Jackie! And thanks to a recent resurgence of popularity in mainstream fashion, thanks to stars such as Coco Chanel to Sarah Jessica Parker, they continue to remain fashionable, elegant and unique keepsakes cherished by runway models and casual dressers alike. Throughout history, pearls have been associated with love, innocence and purity, making them an ideal gift to symbolize a “new beginning” in life such as a birth, romance, anniversary, wedding or graduation. No other gem conveys the promise, depth and gravitas of eternal love in the subtle, yet elegant way that a pearl does.
Pearls are distinctly versatile. Their multitude of colors, sizes and styles make pearls adaptable to any occasion—both as a gift and as an accessory. From the romantic nuances of the pink pearl immaculately expressing the everlasting passion and ultimate commitment to your significant other on an anniversary or engagement, to the bold, extremely rare black pearl long believed to bring good luck and protection from evil that makes it a superb gift for new grads facing the challenges of adult life—I can assist you in creating the impeccable ensemble for your unique occasion.
Don’t make the mistake of thinking that all pearls are the same! Little Girl’s Pearls has over a decade of experience creating personalized and unique gifts that will be cherished by you and your loved ones for years to come. I love helping you choose the perfect gem—whether you’re looking for the perfect gift to memorialize that special person’s important life event with a thoughtful, lasting keepsake. From brides and flower girls to new mothers and grandmothers to recent grads (the possibilities are endless!), or you’re searching for just the right accessory to accentuate your outfit, be it a classic “Southern Belle” look or an elegant appearance that would look right at home on the red carpet, you really can’t go wrong with pearls!
I am seriously a sucker for a gorgeous flower arrangement. When I saw the bouquet created by Lace & Lilies for the Vintage Whites Market, I just swooned! I am not near either of these lovely businesses, so I must live vicariously through facebook, blogs & pinterest.
There’s just something so beautiful and quaint about garden tea roses, larkspur, peonies and ranunculas! Add in a vintage tin and it’s just plain over the moon for me! I have a wonderful little spice tin collection from my sweet grandma. I’ve thought of oodles of great projects to make with them, but popping in a lovely garden bouquet was so easy and turned out incredibly sweet.
What about you? What are your favorite quaint businesses that you have to visit only through pictures?
