The Forever Gift of Silhouettes

Happy Wednesday friends! Today is a very special post for me because I get to share a gift that I was given that means THE MOST to me. I was approached by a local artist in Florence, SC for the opportunity to work together. As you know, I LOVE to shop local and also support my fellow mama friends. Morgan Atkinson makes the most beautiful silhouette jewelry and portraits and it has been a long time goal of mine to have the children’s silhouettes painted for our home.

Since we moved into our new house, finding decor to create our little space has been at the forefront of my mind. I will be honest and share that most of our furniture and decor were hand me downs or found at local thrift and antique stores. We actually put a lot of what we had in our garage and have been selling or donating verses just putting it in our house to have “things.” When I looked at Morgan’s Etsy shop, I saw that she makes portraits and I knew the perfect spot that I could hang them.

Morgan was such a joy to work with! I just took pictures of the kids profiles against the wall in my living room and sent them over to her. She did her magic and sent me photos of their silhouettes then hand delivered them to me when they were finished. I cannot decide if I love the gorgeous locket or the pictures that I hung more. I can tell you that I love them so much!!! I wear my locket every single day and what’s really fun is that the kids always ask to look inside my locket and make guesses at who’s picture is who’s.

If you are still needing a gift for Father’s Day, head to Morgan’s website ASAP and grab one of the silhouette tie clips. They are GORGEOUS and the perfect gift for any man in your life.
