Can I just say, I love me some buttons! I love all kinds - wood, enamel, sparkly, old and rusty. Stacked, threaded, bunched together and in rows. They are a go-to embellie in my studio, and I am so happy that my new favorite thing has become a go-to embellie in my jewelry box as well!
Now, this is a totally different kind of a freebie over here, and let me tell you why.
One of my very favorite people I met while at Cal Poly - who has since left us all here for Baton Rouge, LA (boo) - is the store manager and buyer for Grandmother's Buttons, in St. Francisville, LA. Pretty sweet gig, if you ask me! So when Kelly asked if I'd be interested in doing a giveaway I was instantly on board!! So she said to pick out what I like and she'd see what she could do. And lemme tell ya, it is no easy task to just pick out "a couple" of things from that catalog! Every page had something I had to have! It is seriously filled with tons of amazing and totally unique jewelry and I so want to pick up a few more pieces! A few weeks later, up showed a box with TWO gorgeous necklaces in it! One for me, and one for YOU!!
Are you salivating yet? Um yes. I wear this with all kinds of outfits - it adds the perfect amount of fancy but is super playful at the same time. And the colors go with like, everything!!
I have to say, I was so torn when I dug into the box and found out I had to give this one away! I thought for sure there would be a clear favorite for me between the two necklaces, and that giving it away wouldn't hurt because the other one was so fab. But this hurts. It hurts a lot. This little lady has been sitting on my work table for a few weeks now, just staring me in the face and I've become sort of attached to it!! Nevertheless, one of you lucky ladies will be getting it pretty soon!!! Excited?
Now here's the deal. To nab your entry for this freebie, head on over to Grandmother's Buttons and pick out your favorite piece from the collection and leave me a comment telling me what it is. For another entry, repost this freebie of Facebook, Twitter, or reblog about it!! This giveaway will run until Saturday, November 24th, and the winner will be announced on Tuesday, November 27, which also just so happens to be my birthday!!
That's all for today!
Have a great weekend, and if you're in the Sacramento area, come say hi to me at the Scrapbook Grammie booth today and tomorrow at the Scrapbook Expo!
