The Lord Loves a Cheerful Giver

This giveaway has ended.  Congratulations to La, of A Musing Potpourri.


I think it is time for my very first giveaway, originally planned for when I had 50 followers.  Somehow, when I wasn't looking, it grew to 60!  (not really I always look!).  I am really humbled by that fact.  When I started in March of this year, I had no idea it would become such an important part of my life.  I love visiting in Blogland and appreciate each and every one of the comments I have received.  I have met so many interesting and talented people, I must say, you have contributed greatly to my "sparkling" :)  dinner conversations.  I know an author or two, fabulous photographers, chefs, crafters, etc.  And the deep Faith and Spirituality of some of you whom I visit and follow, just knocks me off my feet.  I really believe I was brought here for that reason alone! 

My giveaway is for all my followers, you are automatically entered, and I will research how I can send it internationally.  I will update as soon as I know if it is possible.  If my international followers (wow, just saying that makes me smile) can email me their postal code, I will go to the P.O. here and find out what it entails.

If followers leave a comment on this post, that counts as two entries.  If you mention it in an upcoming post on your blog, that counts for another 2 entries, for a total of four.  I am not a fan of  Facebook nor Twitter, so it will never be necessary for a giveaway of mine.  The drawing will be held on July 20th, which is a special day here at Two Birdies and a B. -- it is Kiwi's Sweet 16! 


My giveaway is a necklace and earring set in the shape of a circle.  It represents to me the circle of life, and of friends.  We are all part of God's Master Plan here on earth, and we are all connected in some way. 

I just received it this morning.  It is called "Shimmer" and  it is designer-inspired, optical-cut with frosty facets.  The pendant is suspended from a delicate triple-strand necklace, silvertone (looks good on everyone!)  and the earrings are available in both clip and pierced style.  The sheen, the shine, the shimmer… it’s all here!

Chain is 16 in. w/a 3 in. extension
These photos don't really do it justice, it is much prettier in person.  The diameter of both the pendant and earrings is 1 in.  It will not tarnish nor turn color.  I am a representative for Jewels by Park Lane, and can vouch for the merchandise.  I did order the pierced earrings; however, if the winner requires clip, I will return them in exchange for those. 


I also want to take this opportunity to let folks know about other really great giveaways that are happening.

Pat, of the fabulous blog "Mille Fiori Favoriti", has a chance for a lucky winner to receive a $100 gift card from HomeGoods.  Pat has teamed up with both HomeGoods and BlogHer for this contest, and there will also be 10 additional winners of $25 gift cards.  Click the highlighted name above to find out more and to enter.

La, of  another fabulous blog "A Musing Potpourri", is having a giveaway on June 28th for her One Year Blogiversary.  It is a gift basket chock full of goodies, with something for everybody. 

Lisa of  yet another fabulous blog, the Enchanted Oven has joined forces with Mindie of Bacon Time with the Hungry Hungry Hypo for a delicious giveaway - one dozen of Lisa's home baked beautifully decorated cookies, and you get to choose the shape or design!  I already put my dibs in for, what else, bird cookies!

Phew, I am knocked out with all the linking.  I am seriously linky-challenged at times.  Please visit these blogs and enter to win their giveaways.  Don't forget mine!  :) 

xo,

  1. Hello Barbara:
    What an exceedingly kind and generous post. It is very true, or so we believe, that we are all interdependent, one upon another. And this friendship is so apparent amongst bloggers.

    Your giveaway looks really pretty and we are certain that whoever is fortunate enough to win the draw will be absolutely delighted. For ourselves, we shall now keep fingers and toes crossed until July 20th.

  28. Guess What?..I'm a happy follower!..and I wanted to tell you that I have memories of "Park Lane" being introduced to us when I was growing up, I remember my Mama purchasing Park Lane years ago, this really stands out in my mind because my Mama didn't but alot of items that were not:grocery's,shoe's,or clothing. There was eight in our family,Mama and Daddy worked very hard and things like jewelry were not usually essential,but for some odd reason,I remember Mama buying "Park Lane".
    This is an awesome giveaway!!
    Beautiful jewelry!!
