Giveaway – Violet Petals Earrings

lemonadeGreetings everyone! Thank you so much for all the terrific recipes and great suggestions for summer reading! 🙂

I‘ve made a page with all your summer recipes and you can check it out by clicking here. (Later this month, I’ll try to move the recipes to our main “recipe box”, where I’ll file them by their individual categories, like desserts, salads, etc.)

To make it easy for you to peruse the summer reading recommendations, I’ve compiled them into a complete list! To view it, click here.

Now, on to this week’s giveaway, which is a gorgeous pair of earrings!


These “Violet Petals” earrings feature very special artisan-crafted lampwork glass beads. The beads are decorated with tiny violets, in purple and white on an amethyst background. Notice the trailing green vines!

The lampwork beads are accented with Swarovski amethyst crystals and all of the metal embellishments and findings are sterling silver.

For pierced ears, the earrings measure 1-5/8 inches in length including the sterling silver earwires.

Friday Favorites

For week’s Friday Favorites, I have a wonderful quotation for you . . .

“We can’t all be heroes because somebody has to sit on the curb and clap as they go by.” — Will Rogers


Such wise words! And when you stop and think about it, it’s a reminder to cheer on the unsung “heroes” in our own lives, too!

Have a lovely weekend!

See you Monday for the new questions. 🙂
