End of Country Road Giveaway

When Nicolette contacted me about hosting a giveaway for her End of County Road shop, I though, "Hmm...sounds like fun."

Then, I went to her shop and realized I was in trouble.

Key to the Past Antique Brass Fancy Key Charm Necklace 17" 1045

I had to try to pick two from a collection of such adorable, vintage-y (that's a word, dammit) looking items.

I think you see where this is going. Cue stress.

The thing is, her jewelry line and I? We're birds of a feather, peas in a pod. In other words, I adore her line. I finally decided to go with a bird theme - though the starfish necklace was a close second.

I chose the swallow necklace because, let's face it, birds are very representative of spring and new beginnings.

Which is why I also chose the baby bird earrings.

Sweet Baby Bird Antique Brass Earrings Blue Glass Bead Simple 1016

Aren't they the cutest?

I've had to fight Elizabeth for the necklace.

Sometimes I relent.

So here's the best bit...

Nicolette is giving away two pieces from her shop: a necklace and a pair of earrings.

And because I like to spread the love a bit, I'm going to pick two winners via random.org.
Winner #1 will receive a necklace of his or her choice.
Winner #2 will receive a pair of earrings of his or her choice.
What do you have to do to win? Easy peasy, my friends.

Leann Aldrich said...

Oh my goodness they are beautiful! I love the cherry blossom pendant (it matches one of my tattoos) and I'm so buying the revolver pendant if I don't win. The designs are so unique! I hope I win I hope I win!!

I don't have chickens but there's a leftover bucket of KFC in the fridge does that count?

I also have a mother, she loves chickens. If I win I shall give her earrings for Mothers Day, if I don't I shall also give her earrings because I owe her big for those teenage years.

I am a mother too, of twin one year old boys. They are the reason I breathe. They are kinda like chickens. They are fluffy and smell brand new. They are scared of vacuum cleaners. They sorta hatched because I had a c-section. They cheep and chirp when you hold them.
