Give Away Time

This giveaway is now CLOSED. Thank you!


Gosh, time sure has flown by since I gave something away to my readers and guess what! It's time for the Bloggy Giveaway Quarterly Carnival!

Wheeeeee!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Yipppeeeee!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I just LOVE doing this, it's fun to read comments from new faces and hopefully see some familiar ones dropping by too. I also love finding new blogs to read from everyone participating in the giveaway.

But let's get down to business! I've found a new love of repurposing vintage clip on earrings and turning them into wonderfully fun rings! I love doing this so much that I've also joined Etsy with my own shop called Sparkles In Time.

All you have to do is go to my Etsy shop and look at all of the rings there. Come back here and leave me a comment telling me which one of the rings you like the best and what it is that attracts you to it, and you will have a chance to win that ring!

If by chance the ring has been purchased before the end of the contest, an alternate will be given in its place. Also, the pendant is not part of this contest. Thanks!

That's it -- just look at my shop (and buy something too if you like!) come back with an appropriate answer (you have to follow the rules to win, please) and on Friday, January 30th, I will announce the winner. If your email address isn't part of your profile, please be sure to leave it in your comment so I know how to reach you!

(Be sure to spell out the "@" and ".com" as at and dotcom, dotorg or dotwhatever so the webcrawlers don't snag your email address and stick you in the never ending land of spam. Example: bradpittatyahoodotcom or katehudsonatwhackydotorg.)

The contest and comments will close at Midnight, Pacific Standard Time on Thursday, January 29th and I will use a random number generator to find out who the winner is.

One comment per person. Duplicate comments will not be counted, and I know, sometimes your ISP does weird things and makes multiple comments. Don't worry, I've been there myself -- I just won't count the other ones if it happens to you.

So get on over to Sparkles In Time and I'll see you back here on Friday with an announcement of who the winner is. This is so exciting! See you then!!

Ummm...wow. Just one? Emerald City, probably because it's my favorite color, but the winter wonderland has a great silver accent and marshmallow fluff is just gorgeous!!

Meg said...

I just adore the Blue Heaven Silver ring -- the colors are exquisite -- and very wintery-chic. I'd love to pair this with my wardrobe!

Thanks for the chance!

Catie said...

I couldn't choose between the "emerald city" and the "bespeckled"

the greens were so deep and eye catching and the beads had so much detail, but the bespeckled just looks like fun and would be a great finishing touch to a little black dress ensemble!

Yard Sale Princess said...

I really love Bespangled. I love the bits of color in it even though it is smooth. I am always attracted to things like this that are smooth with bits of color, I want to run my hands over them to feel the different textures and levels of color but, alas, it is smooth as glass.

Ilove the caramel dreams with all of the different shades of browns and creams.
