i love you { a giveaway! }

When we were at Disney in June,
we took the boat back over the water at Magic Kingdom,
probably around midnight.

I saw a dad and a son
happily signing to each other
and it sparked an idea...

a sign (i love you)...

iloveu

We tried it out a few different ways...



This necklace (above) was made for Sarah (a newbie to tvp!), and right after she put it on she went to get ice cream with her girls. The lady behind the counter was hearing impaired, and touched Sarah's necklace, admiring it, she could relate to it!

Sarah went to her car, took off her name charm, then took the rest of the necklace back to the lady, touching her to tears!

Sarah was thrilled to bless her.



We made Sarah a new one (of course!)

around the edge in lowercase plain...



this one is slightly domed in whimsy...



and we plan to offer just the "i love you" hand on a charm as well :)

*****

Let's give one away!

Leave us a comment- which one is your fave?

Blog it, tweet it @thevintagepearl, and facebook it for extra entries (please leave a separate comment for each).

We'll pick a random winner on monday.

Happy friday!

How sweet and touching!

I love the charm with the domed effect!

Design A-Peele said...

I hope I win! This is really special. My favorite is the one with the names and domed :)

Jen Lawson said...

As a Disney lover, I love that you were inspired while on a Disney vacation. I also love the story of the ice cream shop worker. Adorable! I like the one with the I love you in the middle and the names in lowercase plain. So cute!

Mandy [Mandy's Yellow Corner] said...

O.My.Word!! This is my favorite thing from your shop so far! [And that's such a sweet story!]
I think my favorite is the second one you made for Sarah.

Muffin said...

Second last one is my fave. :) Such a cool hand sign, and how cute that you saw a famliy signing it to each other. :) Nice and silent way of showing love.

shana said...

great work (as usual)
blessings,
shana

sarah said...

I like them all but I like the last one the best. I think the dome shape is really interesting. I also like the one that Sarah gave away because it had the option to be given away with the separate charm.....I like that! :) Blessings...Sarah

Jamie said...

So sweet-- my kids and I trade that sign all the time-- my eldest even flashes it to me from the window of the school bus! I think I like the one with the names around the sign the best. Thanks so much for the giveaway!

coolkids said...

Love this necklace. The dome one is my fav.

Christy said...

What a sweet story! I love this necklace! I took sign language classes last year and really enjoyed it! It's a beautiful launguage! Thanks for the chance to win!

What a wonderful gift of love Sarah gave that woman! I got goose bumps reading it. I love them all so it's too difficult to pick. Have a blessed weekend!

Danya McClintic said...

I love the "around the edge lowercase plain" necklace. I immediately thought of my sister-in-law who has had a terrible year. She has three children and would LOVE to have that necklace, I'm sure. If I don't win...I'd love to buy one for her for Christmas. I love your jewelry and cannot wait to purchase my first piece :)

Renee@Modus Operandi Designs said...

Oh I LOVE LOVE LOVE all three! I need to put this on my wish list!

Gerb said...

The 2nd photo is my favorite - although I love them all. My parents are deaf and ASL is my native (and preferred) language. I don't care if I win... I'm going to get one of these for my mom with my parents' names engraved on it along with 'Together Forever'. My dad died 10 years ago and I know she would love it.

You do such beautiful work!

Kristin said...

I think the around the edge in lowercase plain is my favorite, but they are all beautiful!

Marie said...

I love the slightly domed one in whimsy. How special that Sara shared her necklace w/ a stranger...a RAOK goes a long way. :)

just me and z said...

So cute! I love this. I love the on with the hand and the names on a separate charm.
That was so sweet of Sarah... what a loving and giving heart. There should be more people in the world like that!! I love PIFing (paying it forward) to others too, even if it is passing my daughter's outgrown clothes along to someone else in need or sending a care package to a friend who is having a hard time.
(BTW I love Braums too, Sarah!) :)
Thanks for the chance to win!

VanSickles said...

That story about Sarah was amazing. How lucky was she to make someone's day so special. I like the whimsy one and the one that was made for Sarah.

Laura said...

Oh, what a great idea! My favorite is the last one--the domed in one.

Celeste said...

Slightly domed w/ whimsy!

{what a FABULOUS new design!}

Katie said...

Oooh I like the one that is slightly domed with the whimsy print!

Ashley Ann said...

What an incredibly sweet story!

I love the domed whimsy!

Thanks!!

Patricia said...

Love it!
We sign with our kids, so this is perfect!

When I sign "I love you" to our 3-year-old he signs it upside down and says, "this is the sign for Spiderman's web!"

cana0024 said...

Oh, I am sooooo excited about this! I took ASL in college and loved it! I would love to just have the basic charm to add to one of my current necklaces, dainty drops. Thanks for making this.

Cassie

Heather M said...

They are all SO cute, but the very first one is my favorite! There are lots of people I know who will love this!

Ashley said...

Oh how I would LOVE the last necklace. My youngest and I sign this to each other all the time, and have since she was a baby (she'll be 6 next month). In a strange coincidence, one of my favorite pics of her is from the boat at Disney 2 years ago. It was also midnight or later and she was sitting so contently on her dad's lap enjoying the ride. I started to snap a picture and she saw me and held up the I love you sign. It brings tears to my eyes to think of it now. I must have this necklace.

LiliAime said...

I prefer the second one...
Regards
Lili

fullofwhispers said...

My husband and I always do this as we leave one another. We will wave our hand while doing it - as to say "I love you, bye!" :)

The last one is my favorite. Whimsy with it in the middle.

Michelle said...

Oh, I love the necklace with the name charm. I would gift it to my friend, Angie. Both Angie & her husband, Tommy, are hearing impaired. I would have their son's name, Chase, put on the name charm.

Soooooo cute & such an inspirational gift idea.

Heather said...

Around the edge in lowercase plain is so perfect for what I've been looking for. Love it!

Theresa said...

I love the plain I love you hand. I have a friend at church who can not speak. She had a car accident when she was younger and it left her with disabilities. She types on a little computer to communicate and she can hear. She does use sign language too, and we always sign I love you to each other. She is such a blessing, always happy and full of joy in the LORD. I would love to bless her with this if I won.

rachel e. said...

i like the separate charms. hand on one, names on the other!

Shari said...

I like *around the edge in lowercase plain* but the domed is pretty sweet also.

This story touched my heart! What a lovely gesture!!!!

sydney @ memorable minutes said...

oh it's never good to be one of the first comments ;) but i really think i either just like it plain or to this side like the first pic shown. i'd love to teach this sign to my 10 month old niece !

Shana said...

What a fantastic story! So touching! I think this is a beautiful necklace! I taught my son to make the ILY sign and this is a great symbol of that...They're all gorgeous in their own way(s) but I like the whimsy font so we'll go with that one... :)

Shorty said...

Absolutely beautiful. I don't know sign language really, but I've always use the 'I Love You' sign with my husband. My favorite charm is the double charm - one hand charm and one name charm on the same necklace. You truly do beautiful work!

ChRiS said...

i have a internet friend that is deaf and she is just so plesent to associate with she teaches at Duke...i know she would love this so anyone would be nice...ty just.plzzz@yahoo.com btw is this available in the shop?

--Amie-- said...

I love the around the edge one,that y'all made for Sarah!!! A girlfriend of mine just had a baby a month ago thats hearing impaired, and this would be an AWESOME Christmas gift for her!!!!

Erin from Skoots and Cuddles said...

adorable!!! i love the domed one. you're so creative!!

Sarah Jane said...

I like the idea of the one with "I love you" on one charm and the names on the other. But they're all great! :]

Tammy said...

Very fun! I like the second and fourth ones the best!

Patrick, Ashley, and Audrey said...

Yay! I'm the first to comment!
I love love love the domed one! So delicate looking with those soft edges! Great idea!!!

cmnb said...

What a great story! I have often thought I'd like to learn sign language. Love the original with multiple charms!

jle819 said...

if i were the lucky winner, i would hope for the "around the edge in lower case plain". i wonder if there is room for four names . . . i have four kids! i am thinking about putting this on my "to get the kids for christmas stockings" list! i know three girls who would LOVE to see their names on a necklace like this! ~ jody

alana said...

my favorite is the one the icecream lady is wearing .. mostly because she is wearing it ...

kristen said...

The third one is my fave!! I love this idea. :)

Always April said...

I love the one that is a domed whimsy! That is such a selfless thing that Sarah did.

Julie Hoban Hansen said...

I love the slightly domed version!!! Beautiful.

I think your blog and your work is fun. Keep it up. The pearls with the silver are so clean and soft looking.

Trish said...

I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to win this for a friend of mine who is deaf and has 4 children(one child is also deaf). We met because our husbands are both State Troppers. She is an AMAZING women and mother!! The time she spends alone raising her children while he works and the way she can communicate with them will just cause a loss for words to come.

Just watching her sign to them and them sign back to her....there are no words to explain!

Maryann @ Domestically-Speaking said...

What a great idea... LOVE the domed one!

mom2marbles said...

i LOVE them all! we used this sign in our family everyday! my parent's taught it to us when we were kids and now my kids use it too! whenever we are leaving after a visit or just to say it without "saying it". so sweet and such a good idea!!!!

dubiousRN said...

I like the necklace Sarah made. I think it is my favorite.

Me, Only Better said...

They are all beautiful! Second to last or last one would be favourites! What a sweet story.

Sydney said...

What great story behind the creation of this necklace, and how generous of Sarah to do that for someone she didn't even now. *Love it* My favorite style of this necklace is the slightly domed in whimsy.

KAE said...

I love the one with the I love you sign on one piece and the names on the other, that way you could mix and match! What a great idea!!

Sara L. said...

they are all beautiful and such a creative idea. i think my favorite would be the third one where the i love you sign is in the middle and the names around it :)

The Ayers Adventures said...

I love this necklace and would love to win this for my mom! She has always wanted something to represent my sister and I and I think this would be the perfect thing for her! I love that you added the sign to it I think it adds a uniqueness that you don't see in jewelry like this but absolutely stunning! Such a heartfelt meaning and an amazing creation!

~Christina

starsanderin said...

What a neat idea! I like the second one the best I think! My family used to always point to our eye, then our heart and then point at the person but the sign language idea is awesome!


What a great thing to give away!
Erin!

starsanderin said...

Facebooked it!

Jennifer said...

Oh my goodness! I love this! I took ASL in college....we spent a day using only sign language and pretending like we couldn't hear. A real eye opener for me was how you just kind of get ignored by some people.

ANYHOW...I love the last one...okay...really, I love them all and I think it is so special what Sarah did by giving her necklace away. That would be a fun thing to do for whoever wins the giveaway....look for someone special to give it to....and then send you a picture of course! :)

LauraLou said...

I love the last one! Or just the 'i love you' sign too!

Ms. Natalie said...

I like the smaller hand with the names around it. I would LOVE to have one. I am teaching my primary kids at church a song called "As I Have Loved You" and we are signing it while singing it. This would be PERFECT!!!
PICK ME PICK ME!!

Mandie, Daniel and Dawson said...

I'm pretty certain that I didn't know what love was until my son was born. Now that he's 20 months old, he's learning more and more and sign language is no exception. This is something we've worked on for a while now and to see him pick it up is amazing. This is a beautiful gift and not only to the hearing impaired community, but to everyone. I absolutely love the "I Love You" sign as a plain charm and then another with the names. Beautiful work, as usual.

Amy Priddy :||: Priddy Creations said...

That turned out great! And what a great story. Kudos to Sarah for making her day.

I love the domed one. My 7 yr old (Ethan) likes to make that sign to me. But sometimes he forgets the thumb and then we are just Hook 'Em Horns! LOL! Would love to win. Thanks for the chance!

Jamilyn said...

I love the last one with the hammered edges. What a great idea. Sign Language was my foreign language in HS and when I was younger I worked with children who used ASL, it holds a very special part of my heart.

Ali @ Mommie Life said...

I LOVE this!!! The domed one is my absolute favorite!! What a great idea!

Sarah said...

My niece, Sarah, is study to be an interpreter for the hearing impaired. She'll finish her degree in just a few months, and this would be the PERFECT gift for her. I love her to pieces!!! I like the names around the edge - but for Sarah I'd probably put a scripture verse or some inspiring words. Thanks, TVP, for another beautiful creation!

Genevieve said...

I love the multiple piece with the pearl! (sunni & Savannah). Love. Love. LOVE it! Great job Erin!

I like the taylor*makenzie*carson one - so cute!

girlsmama said...

I think it's a tie between the one with double tags and the last one domed in whimsy.

Heather said...

I like the domed one and the one with the hand offset/names on side. What a great idea!

Amber said...

Could I be first?!?!?

I love the slightly domed and whimsy.

Thanks

Erin said...

I love the around the edges in plain one. What a great idea!

Leslie said...

I like "around the edge in lowercase plain best", but that's just me, very plain and simple. What a great piece and what a touching story.

north_dancer11 said...

I absolutely love the one done in whimsy. This is such a beautiful necklace with a beautiful meaning to it. :) <3

Kaleidoscope Eyes 8 said...

Perfect! I like them all, but I think I would choose the first one.

My sister, who was a sign language interpreter, passed away from breast cancer at the end of last year. I would like to get this with her name (Sara) and possibly the dates. I actually have the "I Love You" symbol tattooed on my leg for her!

The problem would be... do I keep it for myself or give it to my brother-in-law, niece, nephew, or parents?!

Stefenie said...

I LOVE, love, love the slightly domed in whimsy one. How wonderful that she was able to give her necklace to that lady. I am sure that will touch her deeply for a very long time. Random acts of kindness are the BEST!

Kaleidoscope Eyes 8 said...

I blogged it. (http://kaleidoscopeeyes8.blogspot.com/)

And I changed my mind about what I would want it to say. I would want the first or second one on it, with the quote "I am sending you light," as that was my sister's saying and what was at her life celebration (aka memorial service) and what I put on her memory cards.

Tracie said...

The second necklace is my fav. It is very touching. The story about Sarah brough a tear to my eye.

Becky said...

I love the one with the extra name charm. Sweet! Although we are not hearing impaired, we use this at parties and such where we can only see each other across the room.

Erin M. said...

I love the domed one. Honestly my 6 and 8 year old and I use the "I love you" sign all the time. It's so sweet! Nice work!

The Dobsons said...

Love this idea! My favs are the two charms and the around the edge.

The Dobsons said...

I also posted a link on Facebook!!

btw - does tvp have a Facebook page???

Thanks!

ERay said...

Oh I love the domed one. This is so beautiful and sweet.

I like the around the edge, lower-case plain. My mother is deaf, and I think she would love that one.

Kiley said...

ahhh its beautiful! if i won i would give it to my mom, who is pregnant with baby number 4 :)

MacKenzie Patricia Elise said...

These are adorable what a great idea. The domed one is my favoirite I love the little pearl attached also.

I love the one in black and white. Gorgeous!

Rachel E. said...

What a neat story! I like the "slightly domed in whimsy." :-)

April O. said...

Leaning toward the domed, but would need a bit to study each one. :)

Oh, this is so, so lovely.

Fairy_Dust_Studio said...

I have to say the second one, with the sign tag and then the name tag is my favorite! I'm a total fan (gushing)

And Miles To Go... said...

I love the one with a touch of whimsy (the last one). What a beautiful story!

Kim said...

This is our favorite sign- going to school, bed, or a friends house, this IS the sign we leave each other with!- Sarah, I love your story!

Julie S. said...

I don't know how I could choose! I would probably get just the I Love You charm. Too many people to name!

Kristen M said...

I love this idea. I like the plain "I love you" best. My second fav is with the whimsy writing.

Cris said...

I love the domed iloveyou! & Sarah's story was amazing!

Letti said...

I love this necklace! I like the one with the hand and names separate because I have 6 kids and their names would never fit on just one...lol

Melinda said...

Wow, the first comment! I love all of your stuff! This one I LOVE!! I would do the domed one! I would put all my kids names around the edge...Cadence.Morgan.Cole.Cooper
Thanks for the opportunity!

Gloria said...

My favorite is the one with the separate charm for the kids names and the separate "i love you" charm.

Gloria said...

My favorite is the one with the separate charm for the kids names and the separate "i love you" charm.

Kughn Family said...

I love the one that you made for Sarah with the two charms and I love the last one, that is more whimsical. This makes me think of my step-mom, as we always made that sign to each other. This would be a wonderful gift for her.

Carly Engibous said...

I love them all. And I love the idea of giving it away to someone whom it touches...like the woman at the ice cream store. Isnt' that what we're all supposed to do anyway - show love to others?
I would take any of them. I would put my kids and husband's name on it too.

The Deason's said...

I L.O.V.E that!! I always sign I love you to my little boy. I love that he signs it back to me too. Its so sweet. thats perfect

Ashley said...

I like the domed one in whimsy. So cute!

Crawford Crew said...

I love this idea! My oldest son is 9 now and he's starting to get shy with affection, embarrassed if I get too mushy... so we have started to sign I Love You when he leaves home instead. :D I love all of them, but the two charms are my fave.

Patti said...

What a cool idea! I love the slightly domed whimsy....

Mrs D said...

I absolutely love this new necklace! My mother taught me this sign when I was very young and have kept it close to my heart with her. When my boyfriend (now husband) and I were in college at separate colleges, three and a half hours apart, I used to travel to his track meets to watch him run in circles. There were so many times that I never got to even hug him, and so I taught him the sign for I love you. I was able to watch him run and sign to him that I loved him, even if I never got to feel his embrace. It was a very tough four years. We are now married and when he leaves for work every morning, I stand at the front door with our baby and dog and we flash each other the sign. It is the last thing we see of eachother before we start our separate days. A lasting image that truely is burned in my heart.

eliza pink boutique said...

What a sweet thing for Sarah to do!! : )

Love all of them but I'm drawn to the first one with the sign being offset. All are gorgeous though!

Gretchen said...

What a very touching story. I love the one with the "I Love You" sign in the middle and the names around it. So cute!

Lisa said...

Love them all! But the last one is my fav.

Rosanne said...

That story/act of kindness got me all choked up - how sweet of Sarah! Thank you for the opportunity to win - I'm crossing my fingers! (hey, another 'sign' to hopefully win the 'I love you' sign!) :)

Rosanne said...

I put it on Facebook too, now: http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1017887990
Oh, and my favorite? I can't decide. I like both the stand alone charms and the charm with the sign and names on it!

Life With the Crazies said...

I love the around the edge in lower case... this is so special to me... when my son (5years old) learned this sign when he was three, he began using it all the time with me, when I dropped him off at preschool from afar on the playground, from the stage in school programs, and instead of waving goodbye. So beautiful!

Renae said...

Love the domed one!!

Cherish Michael said...

I think my favorite would have to be the idea of just the "i love you" hand on a charm by itself. It's so simple and beautiful, and it says it all perfectly!

Rosanne said...

Okay, I have now blogged about it too! ;) http://littlehatz.blogspot.com/

Elizabeth said...

I like the one that is slightly domed! Love the story you shared - so wonderful to hear of selfless acts of kindness.

Shelley said...

How thoughtful of Sarah - I love what she did!
I really like the one with the hammered edges and the hand in the middle with the names all around - looks so good! Thanks for the chance to win one!

Jenn Miyamoto said...

I love the one with the separate name charm and pearl. So beautiful!

Mrs Soup said...

Oh my goodness. These are perfect. I have a new favorite! We ALWAYS do the sign language "I Love You" in my family. I have a new necklace on my Christmas list!

other-option said...

That was such a sweet thing for her to do! I love these necklaces, but the domed one is my favorite.

Love it!!! I'm not sure which is my fav, they're all so cute. I do have 6 kiddos that I would need to fit, so I would leave it to your wisdom which would be best.
Thanks!

Such a sweet idea! I like the domed whimsy one!

beautiful necklace, beautiful story.

I love the one with the symbol and then the kids names around it!

How pretty. My girls sign this to each other. I love the slightly domed one.

Alice (fa11enan9e1) said...

awww! That's super sweet of Sarah! My favorite is the one with tiny plain around the edges.

samantha said...

What a touching post! I love the slightly domed charm.

Jeska said...

I love the last one!

Chelsea said...

I like the first one, where it is off center. This reminds me so much of my dad. Whenever we leave their house he has to walk us out and help load the kids in the car. Then he stands in the driveway waving the "I love you" sign until we are out of sight. The kids watch because they know he's going to be there waving his special way. They've all learned to do their fingers that way early 'like Papa".
I love this.
I wonder, could you do the two separate tags (one for the sign, and one for the grandkids names) on a keychain? I will have to keep this in mind for future gifts!

Jeska said...

I sent you a request for twitter and tweeted about it!

laura said...

LOVE this story!
I really like the Domed necklace! =)

Emily said...

I love the whimsy one too! I would love to give this to my grandmother or my mom, or both!! emilyfette@gmail.com

Jill Britt said...

I like the one with the sign on one & the names separate. I also like the cupped one. This is a great idea!

Schnauzer girl said...

That's such a sweet, touching story. I love them all, but I think the last necklace pops out at me a bit more.
Thanks!

The Gosfam said...

The slightly domed whimsy is my fave. My family always flashes the I Love You sign whenever we leave the house etc. So cute.

I love the third/cupped one. My daughter and I have made this sign to eachother for years and it would make a wonderful gift for her. Will you also have it available in the store?

kbloems27 said...

I really love the whimsy one! What a touching story to share!

ckusick said...

I love that!! I do that same sign to my mom and also my kiddos all the time. My fav is the last one, although they are all very very cute!!

Jaime said...

I absolutely LOVE this! I really like the domed whimsey one! :)

Heidi Jo said...

i love the one sara ordered. but what a fantastic idea... i know someone who i would give this too in a heart beat.

Julie said...

What a touching story. Love the unique style and the inspiration of this necklace. My favorite is the "i love you sign, around the edge."

Jus and Kat said...

My fave is the around the edge/lower case (the next to last one) - what a great idea!

Julie said...

I love the domed one with the names around the edge.

Designer Jules said...

What a great story!!! I like either the I love you alone on a charm or the one that is curved a bit. You always come up with great stuff.

m.a. said...

I love the two disk one, but the domed one is really cute also - what a great idea.

How could I possibly chose the one I like best? My cousin is hearing impaired and I would love to give her this as a gift (she just started her freshman year at college this week and would be thrilled to get this in the mail!)

Kristi said...

I like the one that is like the "you are my sunshine" necklace (I am wearing mine right now). But since I have a two charm one already, I really like the top one.

Gail said...

Really love the domed one, but they are all really neat! I also like the one with 2 pieces - one with the "I love you" and the other with the names.

Melissa Borchardt said...

I always do the "I love you" sign to my kids when I am backing out of driveway and they are watching Mommy drive away. I like the seperated hand sign and then the names on the other side the best.

Keep up the good work and I hope to visit your store soon.

Jill said...

I can't choose - they are all great!!!

Linda @ My Trendy Tykes said...

I like the slightly domed "Whimsy" print!

Mruna Mistry said...

I love the last one - domed and whimsy font...I would love if you could do one that had an initial stamped between the thumb and first finger!

Oh what a beautiful story! If only more in the world were like Sarah! I am totally inspired.

With six kids, I might need to have a second charm just for the names. But I think each necklace style is just beautiful!!

Brittany Hamman said...

I have always had a special place in my heart for the hearing impaired. I love the one that has they sign on one pendant and the names on a separate, because my family is still growing and I want to add more names!

Ashley said...

I like the domed one best, I think. I'm so indecisive.

Dee said...

I love the domed one! Very pretty! My sister is hearing impaired so she would love one of these! I'm sending her the link now!

Gosh, I love them all. I live here in Orlando, and visit my beloved Walt Disney World weekly. That story behind the necklace touched my heart. I love moments like these here in Orlando, it's what truly makes this place magical.

With the upmost sincerity, great work.

i love the domed whimsy necklace. this is gorgeous.

this necklace reminds me of that great part of the movie jerry maguire when they were in the elevator with the couple and the guy said in sign language, you complete me. so sweet!

Jung A said...

i like around the edge in lowercase plain

Such a sweet story.
I like the necklace with the symbol and the names surrounding it. I especially like this one because my daughter's name is Makenzie and it is spelled the same way, which is highly unusual.

I can't wait for it to be for sale!

That is such a touching story. :) I remember when my great grandpa stood on the front porch and did the 'I love you' sign to us as we drove off. My great aunt and uncle had to know sign language, so I remember learning that same sign. :)

I love the whimsy one!

Blessings,
Rachel M.

I think I like the "around the edge in lowercase plain" the best. Beautiful! Would be so meaningful for a mother with one or more hearing-impaired child!

Jessica said...

I love the lower case around the edge! When my oldest son was born with severe heart defects we started teaching him to sign I love You at about a year old so even if he was intubated he could still tell us, and see us tell him we loved him!

Littletreats said...

I like the lowercase plain around the edge :) they're so touching!

Maya said...

hard choice! i think i like the first one the best, with the names off to the side, but only if you have multiple kids. otherwise, i love the one with the 2 charms.
