1000TH POST NECKLACE GIVEAWAY
I can’t seem to find my words these days, so instead I’ll show you these. This is the first of many miniature original painting necklaces you might see floating around on my various internet outlets. My two very good friends and I are in the process of creating a handmade collective, but until then these ones will be up on my Etsy.
Each pendant contains an original acrylic painting on canvas, sealed with a diamond-glaze finish. The necklace lengths vary in size, so make sure you check out the details in case you’re thinking of buying. Most of them are on a connected 30” chain.
I am super excited about these. Look out for wearable art on bracelets and rings from the three of us in the very near future!
As I mentioned, this is my 1000th post on Tumblr, since Fall of 2009. Glancing back, it looks like somebody else’s blog. To celebrate that and the launch of new necklaces, I want to do a Tumblr giveaway. Reblog this post (or retweet on Twitter it if you want to participate but you’re like me and don’t like to reblog random things to your Tumblr), AND leave me a message with your preferred necklace length [18” or 30”] (and to ensure you’re in the draw), and I’ll randomly pick and announce the winner here on Saturday, June 30, at around noon, when I wake up from my hangover.
Note: The necklace selected may or may not be one pictured here, or from my Etsy, but we will talk before I ship it to you and if you hate it we’ll try again. I promise.
If you have any questions or concerns, ask me.
I’ve always been mildly aware of the latest trends, sometimes a trailblazer and sometimes years behind the rest. Tea is a drink which has always been a part of my life. A cup of tea after dinner over conversation with the family, a mug while snuggled up on the couch with a good book, some green tea with ginger to soothe a sore throat, and a lovely light grape white cup to share a heart-to-heart with a good friend. Tea has been in the periphery of my life and provided comfort and a sense of peace. However, I have only recently begun to indulge in the craze that tea has become over the past few years.
I’ve ventured into tea shoppes but felt too overwhelmed to participate. A few weeks ago I decided my time had come. I was ready. And so off I went to David’s Tea (I’m a sucker for the tins - Hey! They have an excellent marketing dept, what can I say).
$60 later and an arm-load of tea tins (plus a mug to-go) I was on my way.
And I fell deeper in love.
Interesting how a cuppa tea has been part of my life for so long (as long as I can remember actually), and now I am ready to dive in and untangle some of her layers and explore her more fully. I’ve ventured from the safety of my Tetley Orange Pekoe and am now discovering a whole new world of deliciousness.
Current favourites are Organic Strawberry White (so divine!), Genmaicha (so delish!) and Nepal (just so good!).
Today I shall venture for a detox tea - I’m considering David’s Detox or Skinny. Been having some GI issues and food intolerances so this week is devoted to cleaning up my system.
Bring on the fresh fruits and veggies!
