The personalized locket...

By now, if you are a follower of this blog, you KNOW the paper dolls at Frill Seekers Gifts adore any and everything with a monogram. Who doesn't love a monogram?

Pottinger Photography recently featured a few stunning snapshots from one of their recent weddings. To say that we are in love with their photography and the bride and the monogrammed locket is an understatement!

We love, love, love the sweet addition of the personalized locket that this stylish bride choose to add to the bouquet she carried down the aisle. As our team sat around oohing and ahhhing over the bride's pics, we found ourselves wondering just what the locket might stand for.

Perhaps the locket is adorned with the bride's new initials, complete with a photograph of the bride and groom as children tucked inside. Or possibly it belonged to a dear family member who was not there to share in the wedding. Maybe the groom gave it to the bride as his gift of love. Perhaps it was given to the bride as a child with the hope that she would one day carry it on her wedding day...

The speculation could continue for hours, but our hope is that we one day learn the true meaning behind this stunning monogram touch. Monogramming, which has been around for centuries has long been associated with wedding motifs. We think this bride intentionally took a sentimental treasure to include in the most important moment of her life. Love it! {{Think we already said that!}}

If you would like to order your own monogrammed silver locket to have as a treasure---give Frill Seekers Gifts a "ring" {{pun fully intended}} at 850-267-GIFT and we will say "I do" have one in stock to personalize for you.

Frill Seekers on Friendship...

One of my favorite all time songs boldly states: "Winter, spring, summer or fall...all you gotta do is call...You've got a friend!"

Friendship is one of life's greatest gifts! It truly is. The cutie pies pictured here with me at Sandestin's Mardi Gras festivities are two of my favorite BFF's!
Miss Kim and Lauren are quick to remind me that regardless of the season in life that I find myself in---they are there. Sometimes quietly, sometimes fiercely.

Life is really like a series of seasons itself. Often times when things seem to go wrong, I find myself in WINTER...where things are dreary, bleak and cold. Then along comes happy days that I compare to SPRING, which is filled with hope, promise, new chances, and a fresh perspective. Then there is SUMMER where the living is good, carefree and effortless. Yet somehow FALL always creeps in, reminding me, (like my BFF's do) that it's time to settle down, change things up a bit, perhaps grow in a different direction. {For Christian Music fans---listen to Nicole Nordeman's song titled: SEASONS! Wow what an emotional experience to hear this song!}

Seasons, like friendships are all about growth and change. Nothing lasts forever. Not bad times. Not good times. Not even seasons. Regardless of what life presents you, make sure you are surrounded by spiritual, kind and compassionate women. Ones that add and multiply the good things in your life---not subtract and divide.

When you do look around and find yourself surrounded by great girls, show them how much you really care with a treat from Frill Seekers Gifts. Something personalized, something unique. After all, it's true...Winter, Spring, Summer or Fall---you've got a friend.

The PAW-rade is rolling in Sandestin come join us. My 1st interview Susan Mcgary of Bark Avenue! Come join us!

Talk about "PAW-recious!" at first bite! Today is the Krewe of Arfeous's Pooch Parade in Sandestin's Village of Baytowne Wharf. Yours truly will serve as the Emcee of the event. You should totally join us for a "howl-ing" good time!

Susan and Chris McGary of Bark Avenue in the Village host the event each year. Cute canines, precious pups and silly dog owners of every breed will parade down the cobblestone streets to chants of "throw me something mister!" Many of the shops, such as Bark Avenue, Frill Seekers Gifts and Tales by the Sea will be doing specials throughout the day. All shops will be pet-friendly this week.

The revelry begins at 2pm sharp, so plan on getting here early. Celebrity judges will watch the parade from a reviewing stand, while the Bay City Brass Band will fill the air with traditional Mardi Gras tunes.

It is a sight to see! Last year my favorite entry was an adorable pug who was costumed as Star Trek's Yoda and was parading atop a golf cart turned space ship.

If you are looking for a fun way to get into the Carnival spirit---this is it!

**The Village will also host a huge Fat Tuesday parade tomorrow at 5pm.**
