Friday Find

Sideways Cross Necklace (Etsy)

My second cousin Lauren (at least I think that's what my cousin's kids are called) is 16 years old and she's getting Confirmed next weekend.  I am honored  to be her Confirmation sponsor, and wanted to get her something meaningful for her special day.  I found this beautiful sideways cross necklace on Etsy - which was perfect (and under $30 so was the price). It's delicate and simple, and I like that it's not just a traditional cross necklace. When it arrived, it was even more beautiful in person, and I fell in love with it not only for Lauren but for myself... so I ordered another one. Although the one I just ordered is technically for Lauren since I've already worn the necklace originally purchased for her... Hopefully necklace #2 comes in the next week - otherwise her gift will be gently worn :)

I have that necklace, but mine is rose gold and I got it from Macy's last year. I wear it every single day - I am so in love with it. I did a post about it on my blog too, hope you can stop by and check it out.

I was a confirmation sponsor for my little sister a couple years ago! It was so fun. I've seen the sideways cross before and really love it! So cute!

hi Heather! I have seen this necklace on another blogger site and I love it. So it's okay to give her this one. Blogging posting takes precedence any time, right?

Yes, we are loving floral skirts or pants or even tops. I am glad they are back.

Pretty necklace!
