Luxeliving, Aprons on Etsy

If you like to wear an apron when entertaining, crafting or just doing things around the house, check out Luxeliving on Etsy. I've just received this beautiful custom apron (right) from Luxeliving after winning the give-away in her shop. Thanks so much-- I love it!

She also carries some darling mother-daughter apron sets, a great idea promoting that special bond!

Visit her shop for more cute aprons like the pink one shown below. You may also want to visit her blog.

Honeydew: Do You Love Me? Earrings I Won!

A little Tweet told me about a wonderful give away sponsored by Cleveland Handmade
, a great collective of local artists and craftspeople selling a lovely variety of creations online.

I entered and was lucky enough to win these beautiful green turquoise and silver
earrings (above), sweetly named "Honeydew: Do You Love Me?" They were designed and generously donated by Marcia of Daisy Made Designs. Do take a look at her shop for more beautiful jewelry. Marcia also does custom work using your own special trinkets, charms and mementos, fashioning them into meaningful heirloom jewelry pieces! (right: Marcia's personal treasure necklace)

I'm excited to have won and would like to thank Marcia and Cleveland Handmade for making it possible!
