Giveaway – Violet Blossoms Pendant!

Welcome to the weekly giveaway!

As usual, great comments last week! 🙂

I’m always surprised by the variety of answers.

There were lots of great memories with the TV shows you mentioned, and maybe we should all swap household chores – so that we could avoid the ones we dislike the most! lol

This week’s giveaway is a fun and funky pendant with shades of lavender and swirls of raspberry-pink.


The focal point is a vintage West German Glass Teardrop bead, which is accented with Swarovski crystals. The pendant is suspended from an artisan-crafted sterling silver bail that should accommodate most chains in your collection. Or perhaps you’ll wear it on a leather or satin cord!

Measurements: approximately 2-1/4″ long – including the sterling silver bail.

  1. Go back in time in MY life, or back in time in general?

    Complex questions!!

    In my life, and I don’t know then what I know now….High School. I would take it all more seriously and go to college. I was one of those don’t have to study to get staight A’s kind of people. I didn’t think I could come up with $$ to go to college for 100 reasons so I graduated and continued to work.

    If I knew then what I know now…I would not go back. All experiences I have had have made me who I am today. I haven’t liked myself sometimes along the way and made mistakes, but I LOVE me now so thats good enough for me.

    Back in history? The old west. Somewhere in Arizona, or Colorado or Wyoming. I want to be there, but NOT as a farmer. I would live in town.

  2. I would love to be able to say I eat a little at a time of each item. That seems like what a normal person would do. But no, I eat one thing at a time starting with what I think I would like the best and just every once in a while I take a bite of something else. Weirdo, huh!

  3. Question number 1: I don’t think that I would go back in time. I’m a big fan of modern technology and living now. As much as I loved the beautiful dresses of past ages, then I remember that they didn’t have air condition…or deodorant…

  4. Question number 2: I normally eat a little bit of each food, although I don’t always finish the ones that I don’t like.

  5. If I could go back in time I’d go back to when I was 15 and start things over. That’s when my life went downhill.

    Thank you!

  6. It depends what’s on my plate. Thanksgiving Dinner gets made into a big mush of everything. Tonight, on the other hand, I ate my risotto separate from my chicken and my broccoli. BUT I put my sauce on everything.

    Thank you!

  7. I’m not sure exactly how far back I would go but it wouldn’t be that far…I need my computer and DVR! LOL

  8. If I could go back in time, I’d go back about 150 years. I really like hats and I’d like to live in a time where there are millinery stores everywhere.

  9. I eat around the plate. I used to stick to one food at a time, but that got boring.

  10. I would love to go back to the 1800’s. To live a life of no technology would be great. Just to work hard on the land and have family be first.

  11. 2. I eat a mixed amount of food. If there are potatoes though I mix all my veggies in to make it more tasty.

  12. If I could go back in time, I think I’d have to go back to the beginning, and see who’s right 😉

  13. If I were to go back in time I would go back no more than a week; just enough to catch up on my work (or rather, to not fall behind on my second go-around). I am pretty happy with my life right now, fortunately!

  14. Oh, when I eat I tend to eat “combo” bites. I don’t mix my food on my plate, but will have half a forkful or one thing with half a forkful of something else. I just keep going like that until everything is gone.

  15. i usually eat one thing at a time. and im weird—they cant touch each other!!! hahah

  16. How far back would I go? I think I’m very happy right where I am and enjoying every moment of life.

  17. I’m definitely not a mixer ~ too messy looking. I think I do a little bit of each one. But it depends sometimes I just gobble up the most delicious one first!

  18. i don’t think i would go back in my own history as i would not change anything or i would not be the me i am today. any further and i would not be alive because my birth defect would not have allowed me. as to the future, don’t want to go there either…i want to be surprised.

  19. It depends. If I can come back again then I would go to the 1940s-1950s! In my life, I wouldn’t mind going through high school as long as I still end up the way I am now. I think I would just spend more time with my grandma though.

  20. More times than not I eat all of one type before I move on to the next thing but I do try to make the effort occasionally to mix things up so my food won’t get cold.

  21. #2 i always eat a bit of everything… sometimes mixed together, but that depends on my mood!

  22. Wouldnt go anywhere before women had some sort of equality.
    Possibly only back to the eighties.

  23. All my food has to be seperate, I will eat pasta with sauce and potatoes and gravy with meat. But mostly seperate, leaving fave food until last.

  24. I’d go back to the 90’s because now I’d be able to enjoy more this time.

  25. 1. If you could go back in time, how far back would you go?

    If I must, I would go back to the moment when I was still a child. Eat, sleep and being loved… Awww…

  26. 2. When your dinner plate has a selection of different foods on it, do you usually mix all the foods together, or do you eat a little bit of each one until you are finished, or do you prefer to eat all of one type of food before moving on to eat all of the second one, etc.?

    Let’s say we have sweet and sour pork, salad + yew-char-koey, omelet fry, sweet and sour fish fries and ‘kailan'(a type of veggie). I’ll take a bite of my pork and then a piece of yew-char-koey, and followed by a piece of fish fry and a spoonful of veggies. I think it’s nice to eat them separately, a little bit every time. It makes me want to have another bite until I’m full.

  27. I would love to be in 1500’s to observe Henry VIII and all his chaos.

  28. I eat a little bit of each. But I often save the best till last but i make sure i don’t fill up on the other choices.

  29. I will go back to my teen time because that’s the time study is most important and I chose the wrong subject back then.

  30. I want to be a child forever, so going back to age 3 or 4 and when I hit puberty, I want to go back again to 3, and again and again…

  31. The going back in time question is tough. My biggest regret happened when I was sixteen, so maybe if I could go back to that time and do it differently? Thanks for the chance to win!

  32. I eat a little bit of each thing. Anytime someone mixes everything together, it reminds me of my grandpa because that is what he did!
