santa (aka andrew),
i also spotted this locket on etsy at timeless trinkets. now if you only won’t stop asking me for the blog address when i’ve sent it to you three times! : ) maybe this locket will fit your head.
i couldn’t resist and bought myself this necklace the other day.
does anyone else love shopping the day after thanksgiving? i do! i don’t have really anything to buy since i’m almost done with my holiday shopping, but am eager to go if there are some great deals.
