Today, my husband and I spent the day together without the kids and we snuck in a lunch date and then went to pick-up our godchild's christening gift at Tiffany & Co. The piece we chose is the 'Man in the Moon' Teether. We had it hand engraved and its just gorgeous. I know his parents will put it away and keep it for him for when he has babies of his own one day. The christening is tomorrow and we can't wait for them to open the little blue box.
Every time I walk through those revolving doors I feel like I'm floating. So many pretty, shiny, sparkling, pieces of art and the smell of Tiffany always makes me smile. Of all the jewelry designers at Tiffany, Elsa Peretti and Frank Gehry are my favourite. Their creations are mini sculptures. I am fortunate enough to have several pieces from Tiffany and I cherish each one of them. These gifts are from my wonderful husband and all have marked special events in our lives. Recently, I lost one of my charms on my bracelet and I was so torn up about it my stomach was in knots for days. My husband gave me the bracelet as a gift when our daughter was born. I kept getting teary eyed thinking about that small heart locket lying somewhere all alone without an owner. Miraculously, the hostess of the party that we attended found it. I cried when she told me it was found.
