The drawing for the amazonite earrings will take place tomorrow at midnight, so get your entries in before then. I will announce the winner here on July 1st, and also contact them in whichever way they provided.

The drawing for the heart earrings will take place on July 1st (probably midnight as well) so I'll give you that whole extra day to get your entries in for that one. That winner will be annouced here on July 2nd and will be notified via the contact information provided.

Okay, so get those entries in!! Tell everyone you know to do the same! I can't wait to find out who the lucky winners are!

The Latest Treasure

This is my latest yard sale find. It's an old lamp, gray base with little black specks, cream shade with little brown specks. It's quite lovely and I was very happy to come across it. Paid $1.50

I'm thinking of transforming it into a more, oh how should I say it...shabby chic look. (wink wink). I think my approach is going to be to paint the base of the lamp antique white and give it a vintage feel, doing the best with the common painting skills I possess. The shade however I haven't reached a decision on yet. Should I paint it? It is a bit stained (there are a few brown rings around the other side). Should I replace it all together? And with what? I was thinking of possibly sewing some beads around the bottom of the shade, simply because I've always loved lamps that look like that. I'm not sure though. Seashells perhaps? Well, I'll be sure and post the finished product once it is complete, so that you may all see the outcome. If you have any suggestions as far as the re-creation of the lamp, feel free to comment!

Until we meet again,

New Listing: Seashell Stemware Charms

Hello Everyone! I hope that you're enjoying this beautiful week and entering lots of giveaways. Speaking of giveaways, there's another great little blog, called "Brandon and Brees Bliss" that is having a giveaway. I thought I'd share it with you since the prize is a pillow! A fantastic pillow with little birds on it. I love birds, don't you? So enter while you still can. Here is their blogspot...

I listed a new item today...stemware charms made with real seashells.

I use these little charms on the handles of my coffee mugs as well, which works just as nicely. They're so cute, I'm having a hard time selling them, but then again I always have that problem. haha. Well, have a wonderful wonderful afternoon all! If you check out my new listings, I'll be so grateful.

Until we meet again,
