Time for a Giveaway!

I hope you realize how much I adore you all. Seeing all of my followers and reading all of your comments makes my days so much better. I love hearing everything you have to say and the community that I have through the blogging world.
With all that you give to me every day it's about time for me to give back to you! Luckily, the wonderful Katie from Willow & Quinn has offered an item for a giveaway!
A year ago Katie left her job in social work to focus on Willow & Quinn and has made a successful business since then. Willow & Quinn is full of gorgeous jewellery and hair pins that are made from vintage pieces.




And now, for the part you can win! Katie made these beautiful hair pins out of vintage Japanese glass that dates from the 1940s. They are attached to 2 1/2" silver pins and would look great to go out or stay home in.

There are lots of ways to enter so pick as many as you'd like and leave me a comment letting me know!

Love the Vintage Japanese Glass Squares on Bobby Pins.

I recommend Love Is a Mix Tape: Life and Loss, One Song at a Time by Rob Scheffield. It's the first book that has made me cry since Little Women, and is so beautifully done.

I love the Red Glass Earrings, I have "favorited" them before.

& as for a book, "A Million Little Pieces" by James Frey -the book gets a ton of criticism because Frey claimed it was all true, but he exaggerated a ton. None the less, it's one of my favorite books.

And finally, my book recommendation is Eat, Pray, Love. I tend to be leery of books everyone swoons over, but this one is actually worth it. Plus the film is coming out soon, so you can read it then watch it. :)

I am a follower of course, as for a book suggestion, Mennonite in a Little Black Dress, it was definitely an interesting take on us Mennos (I get most of my book ideas from you, so kind of hard to reverse) And I just wanted to point out that today you hit 200 followers. WHOO-HOO!! haha

As for books, I'd suggest The Book Thief and I Capture the Castle, just because those are two of my favorite books in the entire world and I have to recommend them to everyone I ever meet. ;) Also Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close--I'm reading it right now and loving it.

my favorite piece from Willow & Quinn's shop are the Green Glass Cabochon earrings. I may just buy them for myself!

MandeeFoFandee said...

My favorite book in the entire world is Odd Thomas by Dean Koontz. it's got a little bit of everything - romance, mystery, and drama. I tell everyone about it!

How can I pick a favorite piece? There are to many? Maybe the LOVE necklace though...it is adorable!

Laurie Ruth said...

Oh and a book suggestion, my favorite author is Dorothy M. Keddington. Her books can be hard to find sometimes (my favorites are from the late 70's earlier 80's) but they are so good! Return to Red Castle is my absoulte favorite book of all time, followed closely by Jayhawk and Shadow Song. I have read each one probably over 30 times and just started to Return to Red Castle again.

Something nice I did for someone:

I made some earrings and gave them to a friend to brighten her day! :-)
