Giveaway – “Cape Cod Breeze” Earrings


What is it they say about expect the unexpected? I guess it’s Murphy’s Law – anything that can go wrong will go wrong.

(Thanks Chris for missing me! 🙂 )

We planned a little get-away over last weekend. I prepared Friday’s post early and was just about to schedule it, so that I could move on to packing for the trip, when all of a sudden there was some issue on wordpress and I couldn’t post. The timing was such a nuisance, because I should have been gathering stuff into the suitcase instead of tearing my hair out on the computer! I finally had to give up trying to post and off we went for the weekend. (It was a nice trip by the way – more on that later.)

From the road on Saturday night, I had some brief internet access. Lo and behold, the wordpress glitch had miraculously resolved itself, so I was finally able to put up the Friday post then.

It’s funny how unnerving it can be when the blog goes a little wonky! 😉

But enough about that…. on to the GIVEAWAY!!!

This week’s giveaway is a slightly more delicate pair of dangle earrings – perfect for the gal who likes a little dangle but not the very-long length of the typical “shoulder duster” style.


These “Cape Cod Breeze” Earrings feature gorgeous, dimensional, carved glass “roses” in a beautiful aqua sea blue. I’ve accented them with two sizes of Swarovski Jet AB 2X Crystals, which coordinate beautifully with the rose beads

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