Shiny, Pretty and Sparkly...oh my!



When it comes to favorite things, pretty and sparkly almost always tops my list.

Oh, you too?

Well, I have a sterling silver pendant on an 18" box chain, set with a blue topaz that I'm giving away to one lucky commenter this week. (I have a similar necklace that I wear almost daily.) It looks just as great with jeans as it does with dresses and would make a great gift for yourself or someone you love. Here's what it looks like:



For a chance to win this pendant, simply leave a comment on this post by 10 p.m. on Friday, August 1st. One comment per person please (duplicates will be deleted). You do NOT have to have a blog to play along, but please provide a valid email address where I can contact you. I'm willing to ship internationally, but I'm not sure how the duty and taxes will work on your end. (If you're willing to handle that part, please feel free to enter.) I will randomly draw a winner and notify you via email over the weekend.

Thanks for visiting and, if you're new here, feel free to stop back when you have time to look around. Don't forget to check out all the other fantastic prizes up for grabs this week as part of the Bloggy Giveaways Carnival. Good luck!

Lilacspecs said...

That's a fantastic pendant. I used to wear a seashell that my boyfriend gave me on a chain around my neck but the loop broke so I can't wear it until I get back to the states and take it to the jeweler who custom made t for me. So I need another "everyday" pendant for the empty chain. Also thank you for being willing to take us international people into account. A lot of the giveaways don't do that. Not that that's an issue for me as I have a US mailing address, but still.
Oh and contact info just in case:

Hey Lady! I posted the "new" recipe on my blog. One caution, use all baking cocoa unless you're used to the flavor of carob. It does NOT taste like chocolate, no matter what anyone tells you. ;)

Caffeine gives me migraines so I did half and half, but if you don't have that problem, stick to the cocoa!
