A Little Princess by Frances Hodgson Burnett

Hello again! :)
    I just finished A Little Princess by Frances Hodgson Burnett and how wonderful it was! I am still reelling from how much I enjoyed it. So much was I enraptured by it that I simply finished it in practically one sitting! Which I don't usually do being a restless sort of girl who typically reads in intervals and then returns later.
     I was very much suprised because previously I had only seen a movie based on it, I believe it was one with Sherley Temple as Sara, but I may be mistaken, and that did so splendid a book no justice!
   I would highly recommend this book, as besides being short it is also pleasant and possessing, or at least it was for me. It was easy to get into and I enjoyed it immensely, although I am sure that is obvious by this point.

I have seen something absolutely lovely! I so want to have it, but I am held back by concern that it may be a foolish fancy and for fear that I may be teased. You see, as I have been reading many classic books, I have heard a many a phrase in reference to a pocket watch and wish #4 on my latest journal post was half devoted to the desire to myself possess one. I have found, through half-hearted searches online, something I find to be quite stupendous.
   It is a handsome silver Devonshire Quartz pocket watch!
 It comes with a free engraving so I could get my name put on it in pretty cursive and oh how I would enjoy polishing it in a nice handkerchief!
   It is on sale for $50, usually $80 and my birthday is approaching very soon so I was thinking I might ask for it. (Although I had presently allotted that money for another cause, I could always postpone that for a later time). I am concerned though with whether or not it is... correct for a female to have a pocket watch and would desperately like to hear what others of you think. I do so love it, but I don't want to be embarrassed to use it. Especially not after paying that much for it. :(
