Obsession of the Week

I didn't become a fan of pearls up until a few years ago. I think they are beautiful but I didn't think I was the type of girl who looked right wearing pearls. My hair is almost always messy and uncombed and I live in jeans, t-shirts, and sneakers. Pearls seemed too fancy for me. That all changed when my in-laws gave me a strand of white pearls as a gift one year. This gift forced me to wear the pearls; you can't accept such a gift and never wear it in front of the gift giver, right? At first, I felt weird wearing the pearls but I liked the way the pearls made me look more grown-up and womanly (this is a huge plus when people constantly think you are underage!). Now I have several pearl pendants, another strand of pearls, and countless pearl earrings. I wish someone would have made me try on pearls before so that I could have been enjoying them longer than I have.
For this reason I am happy that Cati received a pearl bracelet from her "Tias" as a baptism gift. She'll be able to enjoy the simple elegance that pearls add and, as an added bonus, she's going to look darn cute with a little pearl bracelet around her wrist. I can't wait until the bracelet fits her. In the meantime, I am obsessed with finding her a beautiful jewelry box for all her jewelry (Alex joked that she has more jewelry than I do). My mother-in-law bought me a green wooden jewelry box with ballerina on it and I would love to find something like this for Cati. Any ideas where I can get one??

the bracelet looks GORGEOUS on my gorda. I think the bracelet is beautiful and classy, just like little Cati will be.
Steph, check TJ Max or Marhalls. I've seen some really cute jewelry boxes there...
