About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

Hi Lori
1) I like my bird necklace which I wear all the time! My second favorite is the White Linen and Pearl bracelet.
2) The Golden Sands bracelet because it reminds me of my trip to Florida.
3) Something similar to what you showed it your recent blue, white and green post (the bracelet with shells, starfish etc). Or a dolphin bracelet would be nice with blue beads/buttons and a dolphin.
4) I posted about it.
Congratulations on your 49th sale.

Polka Dot Moon said...

Lovely giveaway Lori!!!

Hard to choose!!

I think that this is beautiful White Linen and Pearl Button Bracelet and this hits my fancy and my sweet tooth Cotton Candy Button Bracelet :)

I was going to suggest button necklaces, but how about some button dangle earrings. How about beaded anklet for the summer?

All your goodies are adorable!

April said...

Unknown said...

You know my fave is the anne of green gables bracelet.
BTW, when making those posies, interfacing is a material that you can iron on to material to make it "sturdier".
It is inexpensive and they sell it at all fabric shops, including Wal-Mart.

Suburban prep said...

I like on your blog the Anne of Green Gables bracelet.

In your shop I like the Roses & Champagne bracelet best.

Thank you.

Okay Lori, you've made it really hard to chose from this post. I love Sunshine, happiness and the cotton candy...but I guess if I have to chose one, it'll be cotton candy because of those snazzy beads and fun shapes. And my fav from your shop is the cherries jubilee. I just love your jewelry, I swear one of these days I've got to get a button bracelet from ya.

Jamie :)

Valerie said...

Wow! What cute stuff! I've never seen these before, what a clever idea!

1. Creme Brulee & Roses and Champagne are my faves.

2. Seashell Pink Button Bracelet.

3. Anything in pink and brown. I love that color combination.

5. Done :)

cakegirl said...

I am in love with the white linen and pearls bracelet in your etsy shop. On your blog I am having a difficult time deciding between the yellow bracelet and the blue and green combination (of course!)

You could try making a charm bracelet using old metals from things like h.s. band competitions, old dog rabie shot tags, dog license tags, etc.

Connie said...

Fun things to choose from. It's really hard to choose! What cute ideas you have for bracelets.
I like the 4th of July and the Golden Sands.

E beth said...

I saw the giveaway sign and was tickled pink! I did a blog post about the giveaway, I couldn't get into Etsy but I have purchased the plaid button bracelet and love it. I also think that initials are cute to put on bracelets And miniature flowers also. I'm a follower my blog is called gingham hearts & pink paisley. My favorite bracelet on your blog is the classic black and white and preppy green and pink.

Hi, Lori In your shop I love the precious altered Art domino Pendant Necklas, I like it because of the black & white picture of the little girl, the crystals and pearls are in my favorite colors.

Ok, so my favorite off of your Etsy page is the Anne of Green Gables bracelet...because I LOVE everything about Anee of Green Gables. One your page, I love the Girls' Weekend bracelet...I love the colors and just the fact that it's fun and funky...plus, I'm a huge fan of Girls' Weekends.

I'm already a follower.

I tried to think of a fun new idea, but you already have so many cute things. I was going to suggest a button necklace, but I see you already have one. :)

Amanda K said...

1. Cherries Jubilee Button Bracelet- Red and Pink

2.Seashell Pink Button Bracelet

Brenda @ Its A Beautiful Life said...

1. If I have to choose, I choose from your shop the bluegreen button bracelet "Girls Weekend". Lately my eyes are attracted to that beautiful blue-green combo.

2. As for choosing from your post, now you ask too, too much. How can I pick one favourite when I could love and enjoy so many! Okay, I'd absolutely love wearing your Cotton Candy, followed on the heels by Summer Flowers and Golden Sands.

3. I'll be posting your site, and though I'm not actually signed into 'favourites' with Blogger, you are part of my sidebar daily favourites.

Great Grandma Lin said...

Great ideas, love your creative bracelets. My favorites:
1. Girls weekend
2. Seashell pink button
3. Idea-mix in some letters on a bracelet to form a name. I have two grand daughters who would love a bracelet HEATHER and EMILEE.

Trish said...

I love the reflection of you necklace! My favorite bracelet in this post is the Happiness Button Bracelet. All of those bright colors are doing for me ;) Hmm... a suggestion for a new piece of jewelry... how about a charm bracelet similiar in style to the "reflection" necklace!

:) Trish

Unknown said...

My favorite bracelet in your Etsy shop is Anne of Green Gables bracelet and my favorite bracelet listed on your blog would be Cotton Candy Button Bracelet. I would love to see more of the bracelet with buttons and charms together with wild colors like with a Mexican Hertiage.

Best Wishes,

Kelli Lusk

dkuroiwa said...

Hi Lori! Thanks for doing this giveaway.

I really like the Custom Reflection of You Necklace Charm Initial Crystal on your blog.

I love the Ocean Wave's bracelet-it is so divine!!

I have posted your giveaway on my blog (http://sherrisreadingjubilee.blogspot.com.

For a jewelry idea how about some bird charm earrings with some natural stones or Swarovski crystals?

I love your stuff! Thanks!

Beverlydru said...

Hi! Very appealing blog. I LOVE jewelry. In your shop, my favorite is the "Reflection of You" Necklace. I love the one that's pictured... but if you had a muscical note or symbol I would probably choose that instead of the bird. On your blog post I love the golden sands bracelet. Thanks for the chance to win.

Elise said...

Love the custom necklace!! Also, Bermuda Honeymoon is so cute!! The one I like on your post would be Ocean Waves. Already follow you, cause you're awesome!!

Artfulife said...

Ok, I think you'd already know what my favorite in your shop is, The Anne of Green Gables bracelet. I love the colors & the movies. My favorite that you have made recently isn't included in the photos, it would have to be the Nancy Drew bracelet. Love everything about it.

I would love to see a set of 4 seasonal bracelets that you could give as a gift. A bracelet for every season all in one package.

I'll blog about this and I follow! Goody! Maybe I'll be the lucky winner.


"Garden Party" is my favorite from your shop because of the fabulous color combo! "You Are My Sunshine" is my fave from your post. :o)

Joy, via Sandals & Daisies


How about a button brooch?


cherry said...

Hopefully 50 is the lucky number! I LOVE the creme brulee AND the anne of green gables (one of my all time fave book series) and on your blog...I love the combo of the green/pink..preppy bracelet?? How about one button framed in a pendant...like the beautiful tortise shell buttons...under a micro slide..?? love that vintagey feel to those. OR button earrings could be cute..if they don't hang to low. I am also a HUGE Fane of Harpers island...I was bummed because my son had his end of the school year over night party and I forgt Sat. night it was on. Do me a favor and email me what happened when you get time....I have been wondering about Henry myself..

Angie said...

Oh wow...well, from the post, I love the golden sands bracelet a lot..and from your shop I love pretty much everything...lol..but I was really drawn to the altered art domino pendant necklace..something about the little girl's face..just sweet!

A few ideas for jewelry...I love vintage...so maybe vintage game pieces...old scrabble tiles, Clue weapons pieces, dice, bingo markers, little Life cars...etc...or maybe something made from vintage silverware? Old spoons and forks are so cool and would look great made into pendants...vintage button earrings and brooches would be neat, too.....hope that helps...

Oh, and I am a long-time follower cause I just adore you..:-)

Hugs ~ Angie

I love the golden sands bracelet and the 4th of july bracelet!!! I made a few button bracelets for a lucheon my stepmomma was hosting and used shrinky dink paper incorporated into the bracelet and it was a it at the lucheon. All you do is print out a picture on the paper cut and place in the oven and watch it shrink. That would make a cool and unique bracelet! Have a great weekend!!!
