I’ve made a discovery.
You know how obsessively excited I was when I got my cowboy boots? And my fedora? Well, this is kind of like that. So brace yourselves.
I have a friend named Carrie. She told me about a company she’s working for, Origami Owl, and how cool the jewelry is. They have these things called “living lockets” and I was intrigued … mostly because I had never heard of such, and I’m all for wearing something interesting. I’ve never been much of a locket-wearer, but I was open to the idea.
Anyway, I selected some charms to put inside the locket (a cross, a typewriter, a coffee cup, the word “love,” and a hummingbird) and Carrie shipped it to me and OMG. I LOVE IT. I can’t say that about everything. I wear this necklace all the time, and I get compliments on it.
Here is a cell phone pictorial journey of my Origami Owl experience …
|Love the cute owl!|
|It’s like he’s saying “Hello, I have something for you!”|
|The locket was encased in some sort of fortune cookie-looking pouch! Love!|
|Here’s my locket! Hello. I’m going to wear you.|
|Carrie’s business card!|
I’ve been experimenting with pairing my locket with different outfits, and my favorite way to wear it is with something super fancy or workout clothes. Here’s some shots of me sporting my newest favorite accessory …

|Heading out to grocery shop …|
|And my favorite … workout clothes.|
Wow, look at the state of my closet. It’s a major cluster, but that’s a whole other post.
Anyway, you can choose from a variety of lockets and charms and she can “build” it for you. It’s affordable – lockets start at $20 and charms start at $5. There is a lot more I could say, but I’ll boil it down to this: they make amazing gifts for yourself (yes, please) or others. I am actually about to order one for a dear friend of mine who just had a baby girl.
Carrie wanted me to tell you that she’s running a promotion for readers of this blog. She will give a free charm to anyone who does the following:
1. Places an order at carrie.origamiowl.com
2. “Likes” her facebook page (Facebook.com/origamiowlbycarrie)
3. Sends her a facebook message with the code MMM and the order number.
Easy as pie!
