A gift from the boys

I wear a Pandora bracelet, so when people give me gifts, lately they tend to be Pandora beads.

My preference tends to lean towards the more intricate beads.  I like filigree and colour, so I tend to pick out the ones that have stones.  Nestled amongst some of my most ornate beads, however, is a new favorite.

It came from my nephews.  My sister said she brought them to the store, told them they were going to select a gift for me, pointed out the section they should choose from and let them pick.  They thought about it for a good fifteen minutes, I hear.  They compared them all, debated over it for a while, ruled some out and eventually decided on the best one.

My nephews, after a great deal of thought, decided that the most appropriate bead for me would be a toad.

It makes me smile every time I see it.


  1. I love it..your nephews are fantastic!

  2. Very sweet Janice. That would be my favorite too!

  3. I have a friend who would totally steal that from you. She collects frogs.

    It's really cute!

  4. Your nephews have good taste :)

  5. that is adorable. I bet you will treasure it. What sweet boys!
