The best gifts contain both something of the giver and of the recipient. On Saturday, Laura gifted me the rose thorn necklace from Montreal jeweler Harakiri. I was instantly smitten... it's one of those objects I may not have picked out for myself but I'm so glad somebody picked out for me.
Of course, I love roses... it's rare I go to the flower market and don't come home with roses of some kind. And I wear Rose Noir perfume. But while there are many things in my life that I readily identify as "my" symbols, I don't always think of roses in that way. But it made me happy to think I'm associated with roses in the mind of another!
I've worn my necklace every day since I got it. It's everything perfect. Thank you Laura!
