Time for a Giveaway!

I haven't done a giveaway in about a million years, I'm not entirely sure what I've been thinking but apparently giveaways have slipped my mind.

I thought about getting a sponsor for this giveaway but then I had a better idea. One I was much more excited about.

A couple of weeks ago Jus's BFF (do boys even have BFFs?) and groomsman flew in from Boston, and with him he brought his adorable girlfriend. While the boys talked the girls hit it off, I liked everything about his girlfriend and couldn't help but compliment her wonderfully shiny chevron bracelet.

After they had returned to Boston I got a facebook message with a link to one of the most popular DIY projects going around the blogosphere right now. The braided hex nut bracelet that I had gone on and on about.

Wouldn't you know, I had a little trouble finding brass hex nuts but I finally did and I couldn't be happier with the result.

Where do you come into play?

Well, maybe you're too busy, too far from a hardware store or just don't feel like taking the time to make one of these yourself.

So, I am giving away not one, but two of these handmade beauties. One brass, one silver, two chances to win.

But that's not all, there will be a third winner who will be allowed to choose any item from my vintage etsy shop, My Wish For You.

That bracelet is ADORABLE! However, my sister would love it even more. She would probably wear it with EVERYTHING, as she is a TOTAL beach bum! Unfortunately, she has moved 1000 miles away from me, so this bracelet could keep us a little closer. :)
