Remembering Peter: Locket

Zach's mom and dad gave me a locket for Christmas. It is a small, silver and glass locket with a minimalist look to it.

I love it! I finally put something in it (a lot harder than you might think). It is difficult to find a picture with a face small enough to fit, but I had one that I had been saving for this very occasion. I bought a circle cutter to make the picture look as nice as possible and fit perfectly in the locket.

The plan: Lucy and Peter on one side, Zach on the other

I love all the options possible with this locket! You can change the look of it so quickly and find so many different treasures to put inside it!

Lucy loves looking at it and always tells me how "pretty" it is. I love having pictures of the three people I love most right at my fingertips and close to my heart. Having pictures of Peter around makes me so happy and it always fills my heart with love and joy whenever I see his little face.

Lockets are a great way to remember someone you love.

Most lockets are nice for hiding whatever is inside, but this glass locket celebrates what you hold close to your heart by showing the world.

  1. I would love to have a locket one day. Breanna would slobber it to death! My mom has one that we got her with all the families birthstones and Breanna slobbered it so bad the jewels where just one big clump! We have to let it air out and rinse the jewels!
    I love that you can put different things in that locket though! Talk about bringing Peter along with you everywhere and keeping him apart of you!

    1. I love it! I think I might want to get the large one they offer too, that holds bigger items/pictures. Etsy has so many awesome options for beautiful and unique jewelry.
      Every woman needs a locket! :D
