How about trying for a freebie? A prize or two? The "I Heart Handmade" show is really the place to try for pretty cool, handmade beauties donated by artists whose shops are included. Through Friday, 9-26, enter to win this pair of earrings and bag, and it's really easy to enter. Click the photo to get more details. New give-aways will be listed weekly and possibly more often--stay tuned!
And while you're visiting, take a look at this lovely group of shops that you will find represented at the new show. This is less than half of them--there's a lot to see! Click on this photo to go to the front page of the I Heart Handmade show, where you'll find links to the different artists. I'll be showing and highlighting more but didn't want to overwhelm you all at once!
Finally, I got so busy with floors and other info I didn't mention that I've completed and posted a number of my own new neck pieces for Fall during the past few days. I chose this one to talk about first. It features the soft, misty colors of the ocean side with mixed shades of aqua (or seafoam.) Freshwater pearls mixed with Aquamarine are used to frame an amazing focal point of "ocean jasper" with natural colors and markings that look as lovely as a watercolor painting...done by Mother Nature herself!
This necklace is long--nearly 50"--and can be used three different ways--hanging very long; worn doubled; or tripled as shown in the photo (I love chokers...but really, it's the outfit and the neckline that help me decide what necklace is best on a given day.)
Mention my blog if you purchase this necklace, and I'll add a pair of coordinated earrings for free--for pierced ears, but could be adapted for clip-ons.
More on my new floor soon...it's almost finished!
