I finally won a blog Giveaway! Yippee!!

And it was a GREAT win!
A few weeks ago I was the winner at Between Naps on the Porch (Thank you, Susan, for picking my name with your "random generator!")

I won a gift certificate to The Vintage Pearl.

And boy, did I do some shopping.

I can pinch a penny - so I managed to purchase quite a few items.

First off, like most mothers, I tend to buy for my kids before I buy for myself.
So I bought each daughter a pendant with her initial (hand stamped) and a pretty pearl to hang beside it.

Isn't that precious?


I also bought myself the same pearl, but my round pendant has a cross stamped on it. I added the pendant and pearl to a cross that I already owned - I think they look great, together......

When I commented on Susan's BNOTP blog, I noted that I wanted the double pearl drop earrings.

So, I bought these for ME, only! (Who am I kidding? The girls know where I keep my earrings.)

Here they are........

Love them.

And here is one more picture of me trying to look normal while taking pictures of myself with my new jewelry.....

(If you really want to bring yourself down, take about 30 pictures of yourself - closeup- then look at them on your computer. ugh.)

I'll be back, Vintage Pearl, for these baby spoons - the next time I need a baby gift.

What a great idea.

Thank you Vintage Pearl - I had a wonderful time shopping, and all three of us are enjoying our new jewelry.

Pin It!

How awesome that you won and were able to pinch pennies and pick such beautiful things. I love those necklaces!!!

If you have time tomorrow, please stop by my blog because I am hosting my first GIVEAWAY. I'd love for you to enter. You were one of the first blogs I found that inspired me so with your art pieces when I opened my blog in Aug. 2009.

Everything you make continues to inspire me!

Hello sweet Trish - What a precious thing to do with your winnings! I love the idea of doing matching necklaces for the girls. I have two daughters who I know would love them too. Maybe a "happy summer" gift? Oh, and I might find something for myself - I've had The Vintage Pearl on my wish list for some time now! And those pearl earrings are so pretty.
