I won a giveaway!

You may recall me mentioning a giveaway for my friend Leslie’s shop, Peach Plum Pear, a few blogs ago. Guess what? I won! I’ve never won a blog giveaway before, and I’m so excited for this to be my first! Not only did I get to pick out a couple of pieces of beautiful jewelry, but I get to promote someone who really deserves it. Want to see what I chose?

Swarm of Bees - Vintage Light and Dark Brown Topaz Glass Jewels and Blackened Brass Bee Dangle Earrings

 

I’m in love with these bee earrings. They’re sparkly without being too flashy, so they can be dressed up or down, and they’re so darn cute.

Black and Blue - Blue Sapphire Rhinestone Chain Bracelet in Hematite and Gunmetal Black - Dark Beauty, Estate Jewelry, Something Blue Bridal

This blue rhinestone bracelet is perfect for stacking with my other bracelets, and, like the earrings, they have a black finish that makes them versatile. I especially like the way it looks layered with my studded cuff. I love to mix a little bit tough with a little bit girly.

If you want to snag some of Leslie’s awesome (and often humorous) jewelry, visit her Etsy shop: Peach Plum Pear.

I didn’t realize how much I missed making Etsy treasuries until I finished this one at about midnight. 🙂

Tuesday’s Treasure – Just Peachy

Since I haven’t had time to make any new treasuries this week, I thought I’d browse the ETC group’s treasuries. I found this beauty, and though it’s already gotten lots and lots of views and clicks, it deserves more!

I Am Gorgeous by Geejee

As I’ve gotten older, I’ve learned to love the color peach. It all started when I worked at an independently owned Hallmark store. We got different colored shirts for different seasons, and one summer the color of choice was peach. I was terrified, until I put on the shirt. There were so many compliments: “That color looks so good on you!” As my ego boosted and my hatred of the color (spurred by early 90’s pastel paintings and southwestern furniture) subsided, I realized that peach is just a romantically less common version of pink. Embrace the peach.

Tuesday’s Treasure – Bills & Frills

Happy Tuesday, Friends! Here’s one of the latest treasuries we’ve been featured in. Very romantic and spring-y:

Where The Roses Kiss The Sky by Melony

On a totally different note, I can’t wait until we’re done paying out our previous lease! Just a few more months now, and Tom will hopefully be able to quit his job to focus on school and our work here at the Tri C. This has been such a huge transition for us, and it’ll be nice to be able to simplify our schedule.

Friday’s Favorites – A Quick Getaway

I’m so excited about this weekend! Tom and I are going to the “A Weekend To Remember” marriage retreat in Grapevine. We’ll be attending seminars and doing fun activities together. We have a date night planned for Saturday, and I think it’s going to be a lot of fun. We rarely get to do this kind of thing – taking little mini vacations. Heck, we don’t even get to take big vacations, except for the occasional trip to Louisiana to see his side of the family. Anyway, I’m just geekily happy. I’m already mostly packed and ready to go.

So, today’s favorites are all about the perfect getaway:

Robin's Egg Blue Luggage by PlaceMichel

Vintage Safari Sun Hat by nickandnessies

Handmade Miniature Leather Book Necklace - The Journey by peaseblossomstudio

Nova by BonnieJones

Vintage 1970s Wildflower Meadow White Sundress by RevolvingStyles

Happy trails!
