I’m being compensated for writing this post; but money doesn’t buy me (it only pays for our dogs’ food) and everything I share is from my heart. I plan to purchase a charm necklace in memory of my sweet Blueberry.
One of my secrets is that I love teen, fantasy literature. It started with The Twilight Series (books, not the movies). I kept seeing people walking around with these huge black books; I asked about them at a used book store (yep, before my Kindle) and was told that I’d have to go to the regular bookstore. I picked up the entire series at Target for $35 and devoured it over a weekend when I had the flu. I was hooked ever since and reread it whenever I’m feeling down.
Why do I love this genre? Because it’s fun, it’s easy, and after being an accountant during the day (all numbers) and blogger the rest of the time (all writing, dogs, and business), I need to allow my mind to unwind and a teen lit book on the elliptical is the perfect end of the day for me.
This year I discovered Beautiful Creatures. Not really a great series (I only made it through Book 2, barely), but I did like one thing. The main character had a charm necklace – she would add things (memories) to this long chain around her neck. I loved the idea and have been thinking about doing something similar, but about our dogs, ever since. And now that we’ve lost our sweet baby boy, I would love to wear something to honor his memory.
So I was excited when Angel who makes Rescue Me jewelry reached out to me about a sponsored post.
“You often hear the saying “Who Rescued Who?”. That was the thought behind the Rescue Me jewelry line. Ask most pet owners and they will tell you that their lives are truly enriched by their furry friends…that they even feel “rescued” by their pets unconditional love & affection.” ~ Angel
A portion of each sale goes to rescue, which is something that I love. Not only is this another way for us to show the world evidence of the human-canine bond (something that I hope will end dog abuse and homelessness), but it’s stylish, it’s perfect for dog lovers, and it’s supporting a small business.
I’m blown away that more jewelry stores and boutiques aren’t jumping on the Rescue Me Jewelry bandwagon. In fact, I actually shared the jewelry with a local pet store that I love and think would be perfect…
You can follow Sunny Side Jewelry on Facebook to keep up with the new additions to their Rescue Me line. And you can buy a necklace or bracelet (or both) for yourself or a friend through their Etsy Store. They have several charm options and if you have a special request, they can accomodate that too.
The charm that I want to request is “Blue taught me to soak the joy out of every moment.”
