Dear one, just trying to catch up on some blogs I have missed this week. As always, thank you for your encouragement. Great giveaways. Blessings to you and yours.

Wow, your jewlery designs are just beautiful. I love them because they have the magical look of something unique found in a flea market from a forgotten time. I think I might get excommunicated if I wore the first one :) I LOVE the bee, I would wear it at the community garden as a talisman to attract bees to come and pollinate the flowers. Bees are becoming rarer in our world and we need them for survival. I know we've just 'met' but you come across as a sparkling rare gem with a strong survival instinct. A giveaway is such a lovely thing to do, good luck to everyone!

mise said...

Nearly 50 followers is good going in so short a time! Well done, and how nice of you to have a celebratory giveaway.

nostalgia*gal said...

Morning! Laughing I WANT both! So what am I gonna do? If I am blessed to win one I am gonna buy the other as I cannot pick.

I think I am one of your original followers and I am going to do a blog about your give away and try to figure out how to put it on my side bar.

Cheers, love n hugs!d

I agree, it would be so difficult to choose one, they are both so beautiful... I've been a follower, but I don't get to visit all my wonderful friends very much lately, due to family issues. :-( I'm taking a much needed break today and enjoying my blog visits.

Hope you are having a marvelous Monday!
