New Year, New Giveaway

Contest is now closed and winner has been chosen.


I was recently contacted by Chelsea at Shabby Apple asking if I would be interested in hosting a giveaway.  Of course I said "Yes!"




Shabby Apple is your online source for vintage women's and children's dresses, as well as swimwear, aprons, jewelry and accessories.  I am particular fond of their gorgeous ebony dresses.


There have been several great giveaways at other blogs.  This one is for a piece of their vintage jewelry.  It was not an easy decision as I liked every piece that was being offered.  But the one I chose had caught my eye almost immediately.






This piece is called "Light As A Feather" (so apropos for Two Birdies and a B, right?).   It is suspended on an 18 inch gold chain, handmade in the USA.   Feathers are in style these days, with home decor and even in hair trends.  


I was given a list of jewelry pieces to make a selection.  I gave it lots of thought and it was not easy to just choose one.  No exchanges for the winning piece will be allowed.


The giveaway is open to anyone with a U.S. residence.  If you are a follower but do not have a blog, please be sure I have an email to contact you.  You can email me privately.


The rules are simple: 


1)  You must be a follower of my blog and leave a comment saying you want to be entered.  


2)  For an additional entry, you can like Shabby Apple's page  on Facebook and leave a comment here stating you did that.  You can sign up to be eligible for special promotions and exclusive discounts.


3)  If you mention it on a post or put it on your sidebar, leave a third comment, and many thanks in advance!


For the next thirty days, you are eligible for a 10% off coupon by using the code "twobirdies10off".  


The giveaway starts today and I will select the winner using Random Org generator on Monday, January 23, 2012.


Good luck!
