The Weekend Gimme – FOSTER WELD.

So I started a tradition when I turned 30.

A thing where I buy myself a piece of jewelry (or accessory) every year, on my birthday.

It feels deliciously indulgent.

Oh hey, wait.  Hear me out.  I’m not talking a fancy Rolex, or anything that comes in a light blue box.  I’m talking about something handmade.  Artisan, if you will. If it’s local, well that’s just icing on my birthday cupcake.

This year, I bought myself a FOSTER WELD cuff.  I’ve been wanting one for SO LONG.

If you must know, I got mine at Silver in the City (for all you local Indy folks).

And also, Piper doesn’t know it yet, but this ABC belt is on her Christmas list.  She needs it.  I’m thinking a white belt with a pink buckle.

I think this birthday tradition is a brilliant idea, don’t you?

  2. i wish we had fun local places like that. Zeeland is getting better actually, but Holland doesn’t have a ton of choices.

  6. FANTASTIC tradition! My husband and I started buying a piece of local artwork at our city’s annual ArtWalk, which happens about a week after our wedding anniversary. It’s a great way to always remember to get each other something special and it’s something our whole family can enjoy. I need to take a cue from you, though, and buy something shiny for MYSELF every now and again! Good choice this year!

  8. What a great idea!! i need to put this into practice…then maybe my bday wouldn’t stink so badly every year. Jewelry (or something similar)…or, for clarity, shopping indulgence, is always good for the soul.

    Love love love the cuff you chose. It’s gorgeous!
