I Am So Excited!!!

A Little Valentine Treat

I am so excited! (Besides the fact that there is still much evidence of our ice storm!) I had planned to post this earlier, thus ending the contest a few days earlier. But Oklahoma weather has a way of interfering with the best of intentions. Nevertheless, you are going to love this!

You know, when you go blog stalking…er, hopping….blog hopping, sometimes you meet the nicest people! Recently, that is what happened to me. Through a series of clicks of the mouse, I meet Tiffany, who makes beautiful jewelry. We did a bit of emailing and visiting, which enabled me to meet Kit, Tiffany’s sister. Kit is a fulltime student, with a minor in studio arts and as fortune would have it, like Tiffany, Kit also makes beautiful, unique (as in one of a kind) jewelry.

You can see Kit’s gorgeous jewelry on her website, Mountain Birdie Gems.

Tiffany and Kit have very graciously donated a beautiful necklace for me to giveaway!!! Isn't it lovely?!! (If you read the post earlier, you know I am still looking for my camera, however, Tiffany and Kit not only provided the necklace, but they also had my back on the pictures! ~ Thanks, girls!)

Here is the written description of the necklace:

The chain length is 16". The heart is a freshwater coin pearl, with a heart shaped bundle of almost 30 garnets. The cluster of garnets is wire wrapped together tightly and is about 1" in length.

Take my word for it, it is stunning!! And I love, love, love garnets! The coin pearl heart is tiny and so very delicate looking, adding even more beauty to the overall appeal of the necklace. It will make someone a beautiful Valentine treasure!!!

So how can you win this wonderful treasure?

On a side note: It is wonderful to have electricity once more!! I am blessed ~ I have hot water, plenty of light, and can use the computer again!!! Now, to find my camera! ~ I am sorry to update, we are once again without power. Ice and limbs continue to fall and the poor power crews are struggling to keep up! Please pray for the guys out there trying to keep things running.
