Give Yourself a Little Something {GIVEAWAY}

This time of year, I spend so much time shopping for other people that sometimes it would be nice to buy a little something just for me.  You know, something with a little sparkle.  A little sass.  And a whole lot of heart.

Enter The Vintage Pearl.  If you're on the hunt for a unique and meaningful piece jewelry, look no further.


Run by Erin, a mother of four, The Vintage Pearl has designs for every taste and style.  You can create exactly what you want with the build-your-own Dainty Eclectic necklace:


Or opt for something simpler like the sweet Family Nest design I recently bought as a gift for a friend.


I adore the vintage-inspired pieces, like these silver initial charms.


And the beautiful aged baby feet pendants.


But I think my favorite style of all may be the photo charms.


What an easy way to keep your little ones near your heart all the time!

When you finally get around to putting together your holiday wish list, make sure you visit The Vintage Pearl.  You deserve something as special as you are!


One lucky AFOMFT reader is going to get to treat herself to a special something because Erin has generously offered to give away a $75 credit to her store!  To enter, visit The Vintage Pearl and post a comment here telling me what you'll put the credit toward if you win (this is mandatory).  For additional entries:
