Best Personalized Jewelry

I am especially partial to the children's name necklaces since my own wonderful mom gave all her daughters a name necklace for our birthdays many moons ago.  They were particularly helpful for my sisters since their friends often had difficulty knowing which name went to which twin.  🙂 — Happy birthday Caryn & Carole!

Check out Adele wearing a personalized name necklace – still hard to read the name but the buzz is it is the name of her baby!  Since this necklace is right on trend, we wouldn't be at all surprised if we see Princess Kate wearing a George name necklace this Mother's Day.

Planning a wedding?  Personalized name jewelry make great bridesmaid gifts too!

How sweet is this picture!  Kate's dad, Michael Middleton snapped this photo of the young royals holding Prince George and posed with their cocker spaniel, Lupo.  Would this not make the cutest holiday card ever!  The Royal family looks relaxed and happy and both the baby and the puppy are simply adorable.

Although it is difficult to tell, it appears as if the young prince is wrapped in a fresh, crisp white blanket much like the one he came home from the hospital in.  It seems as if the Duchess taste leans toward clean simplicty. We love these all white Aden & Anais Dreamer Swaddling Blankets
