Giveaway time!

EEEK!

I am so excited to share with you about this Giveaway!

Leigh Ashley, who is a fabulous blog friend of mine, has generously donated a piece of her jewelry to one of you lucky readers from her etsy shop Barberry and Lace!

At first she asked me to pick one of her pieces to giveaway, but after spending literally an HOUR shopping her site, I couldn't make up my mind! EVERYTHING was beautiful!

I pictured this one for some of you:

Then others I thought would love this:

oooo and what about this:

ahhh! The options were too good! I couldn't just pick ONE!

Not when I love each one of you, and you are all so unique, with such different taste! So I wrote her back and asked her if ya'll could pick your OWN pieces!

And guess what?

SHE SAID YES!!!

If you are the lucky winner (chosen by random generator) you get to pick one of her fabulous pieces for your own collection! (up to $25.00 value)

So do you want to get in on this awesomeness?

Well here's what you have to do:

Mandatory:

Megan said...
