Giveaway – “Lil Black Dress” Earrings

Hi there 🙂

Welcome to the weekly giveaway. Last week’s comments were fabulous! I’m so inspired by all of you smart shoppers and the amazing bargains you’ve found! I also loved your honest and sometimes very amusing answers to the question on birthstones! Thanks to everyone for leaving such interesting and thoughtful comments.

This week’s giveaway is a sleek and sassy pair of leverback earrings. They’d be pretty with just about any outfit in your closet!


I’m calling them “Lil Black Dress” because I think they could be the earrings you reach for often – just like that little dress you can always count on when you need to look your best. The earrings feature three-dimensional “Daisy” beads in sterling silver, Swarovski Jet AB Crystals that flash glorious shades of blue, violet, and teal, and jet black Czech beads in a faceted teardrop shape. All metal embellishments & findings are sterling silver, including the “hammered” leverbacks.

Measurements: approximately 2″ long

  2. #2 hmm… eggs? i love eggs, plus they’re used in cakes/cookies etc which i adore.

  3. Wee…It seems I’m the first to answer! I spend money on piano courses and buying it…if that counts. I’m a philatelist, so I trade with other stamp collectors. I love sketching. Basically it doesn’t cost me much, because I only need to have a sketchbook and a pencil.

  4. My biggest hobby money sucker outer is NEEDLEWORK. This is all encompassing since I am dumping beading, embroidery, cross stitch, crochet and sewing all in this catagory. I always have a sewing project going and bead embroidery. The others just creep in where they can nuzzle their nose into a gap.

    The one food I would never give up would be vinegar… I guess that’s a condiment, but it’s edible so it’s food lol Even when I’m on my super strict diets I put vinegar on everything!

  18. Cocolate… I’m lost without it! Since my first embarrass I became chocoaddict and I need it!!!!!!!! Always after dinner and often during the rest of the day…!
