It's My Blogaversary! Giveaway time!


Photo from Sugar Bliss
Today marks one year since I started blogging. I thought long and hard about what to say today and how to express my feelings. I realized I really couldn't put into words what this experience has mean to me. I am thankful each and everyday to be part of this wonderful community and for all of you and the inspiration you give me. I think Heather really sums everything up nicely here. Thank you to all of you for being friends, offering advice, inspiration, and sometimes a shoulder. God willing, I look forward to many more years of blogging.



Now I say its high time for a giveaway! I've been working hard to come up with new items for my shop. In addition to huge markdowns for spring cleaning I've listed a bunch of new earrings and my new line of vintage wallpaper pendants paired with vintage chains. There are a few miscellaneous photos below. The pendant above I've called Catalina because it reminds me of turquoise blue waters and sunshine. This pendant can be yours - just leave a comment below! I'll draw a winner on Good Friday. The pendant will come to you strung on a matching ribbon and ready for you to wear as is or hang on your favorite chain.


Thank you to everyone who has taken the time to read my blog and to those who comment (except for you bad virus people!). God bless you all.
