But you know what happened? I made it home in one piece with no random acts of stupidity on the highway and then I saw "it"...You know what "it" is. "It" are those manila, padded envelopes that the postman leaves in your mailbox. You know the ones...They bring surprises and fun and happiness and excitement!

According to the return address, this little envelope had come all the way from New York. And, it contained exactly what I needed that day - a big ol'smile! Inside was a stunning Baby Lock in sterling silver with my name, the Mr.'s name and "Love" engraved on it along with a beautiful oxidized chain from Marla Aaron. I just about cried when I saw it! (Ok, I confess, I actually did well-up a bit!) It was so thoughtful and personal. And, it was exactly the surprise that I needed after a day like that!

for layering with anythng & everything. Not to mention, an instant pick-me-up!
I had the chance to interview Marla several weeks ago (to read my original post, click here.) and what started out as a simple interview for our Feature Friday Q&A soon turned into a good ol'fashioned gabfest! Turns out that we had quite a bit in common! We both love industrial design and anything with any degree of functionality! Which is, of course, why I immediately fell in love with her signature locks from the second that I first saw them!
