Giveaway – Winter Pines Earrings

ThanksgirlturkeyGreetings and welcome to Week 54 of my weekly giveaways! If you’re visiting for the first time, it’s very nice to “meet” you. If you’re one of my regular readers, thank you for returning often – you’re practically part of the family now!

Have you started your holiday shopping yet? I’ve crossed a few things off my list, but I’ve decided to enjoy Thanksgiving before I do too much more. I have to remind myself to enjoy each holiday, so for the next few days, my plan is to stop and smell the roses pumpkin pie! ๐Ÿ˜€

This week I have a pair of earrings that are a wintry forest green. Their shape and color remind me of pine needles so โ€œWinter Pinesโ€ seemed to be the perfect name for them.


They feature two different kinds of vintage beads! The “drops” are Vintage Moonglow Lucite with a lovely, soft shimmer on their surface. Iโ€™ve accented the drops with glittering Olivine Aurora Borealis faceted rounds – which are Vintage German Glass. For pierced ears, these earrings measure just over 2 inches in length including the sterling silver earwires.

    I’m thankful for my new baby boy that was born last month and my husband that is home every day to take care of us.

  3. Squash is one of my all time favorite fall foods. The smell of the buttery brown sugar that smothers it as it bakes is one of the signs of fall for me. Acorn squash is my personal favorite, but all squash looks good against a fall backdrop as well as being great comfort food.

  4. I am thankful for all of the opportunities we get in our society. A chance at a good life, jobs, and education for our children. The people that make up our lives, and friends that help us along the path of life. I am also thankful for the simple pleasures of everyday life; fall leaves, fresh baked cookies, and fuzzy socks!

  5. I love butternut squash- especially in a creamy soup or roasted with cranberries. However, my family does not eat it on Thanksgiving! We eat turnips and sweet potatoes on the holiday!

  7. I am a new subscriber! and I don’t really like butternut squash, but I will eat it (not too picky when it comes to food ๐Ÿ™‚ One of my roommates can do amazing things with any kind of squash, so maybe I eat it because of her.

    A dishwasher that works, Netflix, 75 degree weather in November (yay Texas!), coffee and my good friends.

  9. Ewww, I hate butternut squash! I had this horrendous frozen meal once that totally turned me off of it. Kudos for those who can choke it down.

  10. Butternut squash can be used in so many ways, Moroccan tagine, curried soup, quiche and added to pasta. Love it.

  11. A little thing (but BIG thing to me) that I’m thankful for is my family’s health!!
    It really isn’t “little” I guess, it’s just that we all take it for granted so easily.. but I’m very appreciative and thankful for good health!
