on an artful giveaway...

necklace.

My sweet (and ridiculously creative) friend, Vanessa, gave me this gorgeous bib necklace a while ago, and I just fell in love with it. I remember being a little girl and associating yo-yos with country decor and such. I hadn't given them much thought since then, up until the past year. I love seeing them pop up all over Etsy—it's a sweet reminder of my childhood. And now? I can wear them in pretty shades of mustard yellow and add a unique touch to my outfit.

(When I wore the necklace last week, Eisley was completely and utterly fascinated, by the way. She could hardly handle it. She almost figured out how to use her hands, but not quite.)

I wanted to give each of you a chance to have your own gorgeous yo-yo necklace from Vanessa's Etsy shop, Artful Anthology! She is generously offering the below necklace, which is one of my favorites:

Artful Anthology

  • To be entered to win the above necklace, simply take a peek at Artful Anthology and leave a comment on this post with your favorite item.
  • You can also earn one additional entry if you tweet about this giveaway and leave a link to your tweet in an additional comment.
Vanessa's creativity never fails to make me swoon. She makes everything from baby onesies and rosette necklaces to unique stationary and hair clips. She also has a variety of adorable vintage items she's picked up from local flea markets! See below for a few of my favorite items currently in her shop (seriously, those canisters belong in my kitchen):

Entries will be accepted through midnight on Sunday, November 20th. The winner of the necklace will be announced on Monday! Good luck, lovelies.

  13. uh - this is not a double entry - I'm not trying to enter twice - but I really didn't want you to think I'm a total dork. I KNOW her Etsy shop isn't a blog - I think I just had blog on the brain. Sorry!
