like commemorating any special event, our first child is one we will do just as meaningfully as any other. i was on the hunt for the perfect gift for my mother & mother-in-law who threw a baby shower for me this past weekend. our parents have been doing so much for us to prepare,  in all the excitement as we await our little boy.

i adore the simple, classic, Southern tradition of the silhouette, but of course we will have to wait on that one for a bit {hard to do before he’s born, you know ..}. the stackable 1,2,3 and a,b,c rings i am just obsessed with – simple and easy to add to as your family grows, but i decided that i loved this more as a gift idea for a new mom {ie: me!} than as grandma gifts. and so, i settled on the vintage-inspired initial charms that each grandma can use however they please to commemorate their grandson and his new name. i think they are just darling and i’m so happy with the find.

i wanted to find a gift that would be as special and memorable as the shower itself, and also one that would play to a little surprise we were planning for the shower. we have been working to find the perfect name for our little guy, and 8 months later we have finally found it. and so, we used the shower as the perfect time to surprise our parents, family & friends by revealing his name. but, more on that tomorrow!

what other gift ideas have you seen or given as a baby shower thank you, or for grandparents to be?

susan-finchA very cherished heirloom from my childhood is a simple black & white silhouette of myself framed by a delicate black-lined oval. It is so lovely and just amazes me how distinctly you can capture someone simply by their profile.

A wonderful post today featuring an amazing new line of silhouettes that I am simply in love with – Gibson Lane Studio.

Designer Mary Davenport Williams has done a beautiful job of capturing the tradition of the silhouette in combination with the art, design & personalization of her unique designs. Williams’ background is in textile design, having created designs for such stores as Target & Z-Gallerie.

Each silhouette is customized to your liking, as you are able to choose everything right down to the color, background design and font for each special piece.

Last but not least, Gibson Lane Studio puts even more wonderful twists on the classic silhouette with two unique new options – a pet version featuring your favorite little family member, and also a maternity version being a creative & artful twist on the maternity photo.

What a wonderful heirloom to have to capture the innocence of childhood.
