Giveaway Mermaid’s Treasure Earrings

Hi Kids! ๐Ÿ˜€

I hope you had a lovely weekend. We did.

It was Friday that turned out to be a little on the wild and wooly side!

We awoke to no water. Not a trickle, not a drop, nada!

The pump in our well had finally croaked after 27 years of faithful service. After all that time, we really canโ€™t complain too much, and I guess we were actually pretty lucky that it happened on a Friday instead of over the weekend. I can only imagine how much more difficult it would have been to find somebody to replace it on a Saturday or a Sunday. Our plumbing contractors did a wonderful job and by nightfall things were almost back to normal โ€“ still some sputtering pipes and sand and debris to clear, but that would straighten itself out as the water continued to run over the weekend.

BUT, The fun isnโ€™t over quite yet though . . .

The bill will be mailed to us! I didnโ€™t really want a new camera anyway. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Seriously though, as My Dad often says:

โ€œIt’s not so bad, at least everyone is ok.โ€

(That guy is pretty smart!) ๐Ÿ˜‰


On to the giveaway!

This weekโ€™s earrings feature faceted Czech beads in a fabulous shade of teal blue/green – like the waters of the Caribbean Sea! They have a matte metallic finish and Iโ€™ve accented them with Swarovski Jet-Metal Rondelle Spacers, which are set with Aurora Borealis Crystals. They measure approximately 1-5/8 inches long โ€“ including the 14k gold plated earwires

  1. I want to complete my consumer behavior and marketing class with an A. I would also like to get some fundraisers lined up for my dog rescue group that I volunteer with.

  2. O God Crissy
    What do I want to accomplish? Its looking very much like I will be lucky just to get the laundry done each week ~lol~

    I want to work in the yard so much, but we have had thunderstorms almost every day for the last month. I weed on a sunny day. By the time the next sunny day comes, I go right back to the same spot to weed the NEW weeds.

    I have flowers that are supposed to be waist high that are over my head. Its crazy here.

    So, I have resigned to just enjoy the summer with ambition to accomplish NOTHING! That way at the end of the summer, I’ll be proud if I accomplished ANYTHING.

    Come to think of it, I might just live the rest of my life that way! ~lol~

    Happy Monday, huh!

  9. What do I want to accomplish this summer? Hmmm…well, several things I suppose! I want to spend as much time as possible with my son throughout the summer. I also want to get through the 2 college courses I am taking–only 4 more weeks to go on those! I also am hoping to get some large organizational tasks done around my house! That is about it…normal life here. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  10. Oh, I do love your dad’s outlook! I hope your new pump has settled itself in, and is working like a charm, and that bill takes it’s sweet time finding it’s way to your home! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  11. This Summer I’d love to master using herbs in my cooking (Winter might be spices.) Mum never used them so I’ve never been brought up adding Rosemary to my Lamb roasts, Oregano to my pizzas or Thyme to my chicken.
    I watch cooking shows and I salivate at the thought of these flavors. I go to restaurants and order something I know, but it tastes so wonderfully different.

    I want to know the secrets, I want to prepare these delicious dishes, I want to master those herbs!!!!

  12. This summer I would like to have a baby! That’s my goal right now, at least. ๐Ÿ™‚

  13. I’d like to bring home a healthy happy baby sometime before August! ๐Ÿ™‚

    (I’m 9 months pregnant and REALLY done with the heat. ๐Ÿ™‚ )

  14. This summer I want to go on holidays because it’s been too long since I last did. I want to travel, have my daughter fly for the first time, breathe another air than Hamburg’s.

  15. I would like to accomplish some of my reading that I am behind on and perhaps make some meals for a change! ๐Ÿ™‚

  16. I would like to get some rocks
    (I mean lots of rocks!) moved to
    another place in my yard.
    And get my family photos made into
    collages to put in picture frames.

  17. I want to learn more about blogging and making money in the internet this summer. I’ll use my internet earnings to enroll myself in a writing class and in a gym on weekends.

  18. I would like to get all of my windows washed. I live in a big old house and it seems like washing windows is never a high priority and they need to be done!
