Barberry & Lace = LOVE

two weeks ago, I realized that my best friend Kaley's birthday was right around the corner, so I started to think about what I wanted to get her for her birthday. 

of course, I turned to Etsy right away. Leigh Ashley, who posts Wee Bit Wednesdays every week, has an Etsy shop called Barberry & Lace - she's always posting about her new items, so I immediately went to check it out to find the perfect gift.

Kaley's been LOVING owls lately (as you can see from her blog), so I was clearly drawn to the wise old owl necklace that Leigh Ashley sells. it's dainty and pretty, and the chain length was perfect for a mama owl who doesn't want her 16 month old ripping it from her neck! haha! 

after I put the wise old owl in my cart, I continued to browse through Leigh's shop and decided to buy a little somethin' somethin' for myself as well. I decided to buy myself the uncaged necklace (unfortunately, it looks like I purchased the last one). I've always considered myself to be a free spirit, so I thought this piece suited me well. 

both necklaces arrived last Thursday, which was perfect timing, because Kaley & her husband were coming over to check out the house and have dinner with us at our favorite restaurant. 

I'm fairly certain that Kaley loves her birthday present, and I love my "just because" present to myself as well. in fact, I've been wearing it every single day since it arrived last week!

Christmas is right around the corner, so if you're trying to think of the perfect gift for a special woman in your life, I think you'll find what you're looking for over at Leigh Ashley's shop!

disclaimer: I have not been compensated or gifted anything by Barberry & Lace for reviewing their product. this is just my honest opinion.
