Other than my wedding band/engagement ring, there is no other piece of jewelry that I wear daily.
Until this necklace entered the picture. I've worn it since the moment it arrived on my doorstep (other than at night, of course!).
I am usually not one for monograms. In fact, I barely remember seeing monograms growing up in the north. After living in the south for a few days, I realized monograms are a big deal down here.
So either I've been influenced by the perpetual initialing of all your possessions, or my eye just settled on this necklace and brought forth the deep desire for everyone to know my husbands initial. . .either way, I loved it.
And I have big plans for my Maya Brenner jewelry collection. When Justin and I start a family, I will request a new necklace with two initials. Or maybe just one with the baby's initial and I'll layer them. Who could ever know.
I actually considered getting a necklace with 2 "G's" for my cats but that really pushes the crazy cat lady envelope. So I stuck with the more socially acceptable husband initial.

I walked into Tj Maxx for a sports bra and left with a cake plate. (how many times has that sentance been uttered?)
I also found one of these beauties for $6.99. I saw these in a Pottery Barn catalog recently and thought, "I bet something similar will turn up at Tj Maxx or HomeGoods".
I was right.
Think of all the possibilities!
You could use it as your "gift wrap" when giving jewelry. You could fill it with candy. You could fill it with paper clips. You could fill it with bobby pins. You could fill it with glitter. You could fill it with cat treats.
The options are endless.
That's all for today. Oh, and Happy Halloween!
