Is there an item or two in your wardrobe that you wouldn't trade for the world? I'm not necessarily talking big-ticket name items but rather more sentimental gifts or treasures you've held onto for years? For me, that item is this brooch. The two grandmother's in my life (well one Grandma and one Nana to be exact) have always been women I look up to in regards to class, style and poise. Both very different in nature and yet, two women I've learned important lessons from.

Anything I can get my hands on from these two is always a valued item to me. There's always a story, a smile or some background piece of information that gives me insight into the women that I have always known and loved. The brooch in today's post is from one of these women and I've treasured it for years. It holds little to no value but yet it means more to me than any piece of jewelry I could every try purchase myself. It's not just a brooch or an object, it's a treasured item from someone you love. Every time I wear it, I'm reminded of her. And sentiment mushiness aside, let's be honest, who doesn't love having two stylish women with a closet full of costume jewelry and vintage goods they can pass on down to you?

In a similar manner, Target and TOMS have come together to show their sentiment. Starting November 16th, for every Target + TOMS limited edition gift that is purchased, Target will give shoes, a blanket or meals to those in need. One-for-one. For all. Why not share in a sentimental moment during this special campaign and help donate more than just an object, but provide a sense of comfort for someone in need.
