One of my favorite stores to wander through and dream, and be inspired by, is And George here in Charlottesville. Owner Jan Roden and her daughter Christy have created a positively enchanting shop. While my wallet doesn’t often allow me to partake of many of the one-of-a-kind treasures that can be found here, occasionally I get lucky and find small accent pieces enabling me to bring a little of the shop’s magic home with me. This week I stopped in and was delighted to find that they had all their Christmas items on sale – 50% off. I was positively giddy when I found these Sacred Heart Locket/Ornaments included in the offerings!! I immediately pounced on them!
I’ve dubbed this one “Sacred Heart Aflame” because I love the sunburst pattern that is radiating from it. If you look closely you can also see that there is a beautiful cipher monogram with a cross softly etched in the center.
This smaller version (in brass, I think) includes the same cipher but in a different font.
Do you love small keepsakes like this too? If you don’t live near enough to visit And George, check out Eleanor Brown Boutique. I’ve recently ordered another beautiful Sacred Heart Locket from them and will be sure to share photos of that once it arrives!
I hope you have a wonderful weekend. I’ll see you on Monday!
