When Stella was born in December 2011, I knew I wanted to start the tradition of a beautiful ornament for her to add to the tree each year. One of my blog friends (Jill @ Happy Hopefuls) had just written about the gorgeous one she had chosen for her son, and I was so in love I immediately ordered one up for Stella. Every year since then I have ordered a different ornament for Stella (and now Harvey as well) from lisa leonard designs, and they never disappoint. When I pull out my Christmas stuff I’ll try to remember to post pics of the ones I’ve gotten thus far! Right now she has just a few options up that are in the $50-60 range, but as Christmas approaches she always adds new ornament choices and runs sales, so I usually spend about $20-30 per ornament. Not cheap for sure, but they are beautiful hand molded, pewter, customized NON-BREAKABLE ornaments, so they are worth their weight in gold to me. 🙂
At any rate, I’m on her mailing list because of those purchases, and lately I’ve been seeing ads on Facebook as well for her new stacking rings. I’m always keeping my eye out for fun mementos for my in-laws that remind them of Jaime, and I knew my mother-in-law would love these rings. As I was checking out, I couldn’t resist buying a set for myself as well since the kids have somehow made my wedding rings disappear (oops) and I wanted something to wear on my ring finger again. They arrived yesterday, and I am SO in love with them!
FYI – Lisa Leonard has no idea who I am – I just love her work and thought I’d share it here!
