“Florida Sunshine” Giveaway

I thought we could have a quick little giveaway and I could send someone some Florida sunshine! We’ve had such a beautiful week with warm temps and lots of bright sunshine.

The last time I ordered bracelets from Mystic Knot Work they sent me one extra bracelet to give away on my blog! Thanks to the sweet people at Mystic

Their website starts out….

“We all have a love of the sea.  Some of us sail while others surf.  Friends swim and tan on the beach.  Of all the images of summers in the hot New England sun, the traditional sailor knot bracelet completes the picture.”

They have lots of pretty colors and styles and I love wearing them…nautical and fun!

I made a little pouch that would be good to put jewelry in to travel or keep safe in a drawer. I will put the bracelet inside and a little bag of seashells…some Florida sunshine…chosen just for YOU!

If you would like to have this little token of friendship, just leave me a sweet comment!

And if you take a peek at my new shop,

 Diane’s Dream Designs,

and tell me which bag is your favorite,

that would be great, too and I’ll give you an extra entry!

I’ve added one more bag this morning! So look at the top three posts!

I’ll announce a winner next Friday, March 2nd!

Also my 39th wedding anniversary is March 2nd and if i win that would be special.. :) I took a look at your wristlets and my favorite is Vintage Frill. thanks so much and enjoy your Florida day!

You know, the weather has been mild here for most of the winter, but it has been dreary--some Florida sunshine would be most welcome!

:)

Karla Jones said...

I found your Blog my accident a few days ago after signing up on Pinterest. I love your garden and Bentley. I am disabled and I looked at your bags and the spring wristlet would work for me as I use a cane and it's ackward walking with a purse. I was in Florida two years ago to visit my son who is in prison right now it's not a pretty story,but and I did get to spend time on the sand in Panama City Beach and enjoy the sweltering humidity along with the turtle,smalll silver fish that ride in the surf along the shore.

silvia said...

Diane~
