Mommy Jewelry - Done right! (The Fine Art of Family)

Who doesn't love Mommy jewelry... especially when it is done right. The other day Capitol Moms was introduced to a particularly beautiful line by Monica Rich Kosann, noted photographer and maker of classically, swanky modern day heirlooms.

She features lovely lockets, photocases and beautiful museum quality pieces that I haven't found anywhere else. The pieces are made of sterling silver or 18K gold on slim luxurious chains or a casual black silk cord. Right now, I'm wearing the image case with a rockin' picture of my Z and have received several compliments over the last couple of days. It looks great with jeans and tee or with a bright summery dress.

I recommend checking out their site, if only for the fabulous photography. I'm sure, like me, you'll find a piece that will bring a smile to your lips. Monica's line is featured at http://www.thefineartoffamily.com/ and line ranges from $150 and up and is loved by celebs like Katie Holmes and Madonna and local mommas alike.

Spotlight on Blessence Maternity: Lovin' the Belly

This last couple of weeks, Capitol Moms has been scouting and scouring the internet and local area for new, fun things to feature on the blog and site. In our travels, we ran across a fabulous line of maternity-tees by Blessence Maternity.

These shirts send a powerfully sweet message of love and of blessings for the baby-carrying belly. You can find the adorable line at http://www.blessencematernity.com/ . I asked founder, Shaelyn Werner a couple of questions about perks and me-time and these are her responses.

What do you consider the perks of motherhood to be? "Motherhood is the most rewarding experience of my life. It brings out the best in me as a person. The best part of being a mom is getting to learn about my children's personalities, habits, likes and dislikes and when they tell you 'I love you' when you were not expecting it. They never cease to amaze me."

How do you spend and define "me-time"? "I cuddle up to my husband on the couch and watch a movie or go get a pedicure while reading a good book. All moms need a time to recharge away from the kids."
