Hello friends and readers worldwide. Before I get into the giveaway on this post I would like to welcome my latest Blog Sponsor Michele of Glass Bead Treasures! Please click on the blog button for her Etsy shop in the right had side bar...she has some very lovely things and blogs at http://michelestreasures.blogspot.com/
It's amazing here in blog land how we really do develop friendships and connections on a world wide basis and this post is a chance for you to enjoy one of the connections that I've made.
I was contacted several weeks ago by a company named NOVICA, that is in association with NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC to to give talented artisans around the world a place to express their artistic talents and provide access to the world market, where otherwise they would not. I'm all for helping other talented artisans, as I've been given the opportunity to do so for quite a few years on my website at Shabbyfufu.
Novica gave me the choice of either $100 gift card for myself...in which I could order merchandise to review and post, or 2 gift cards for $50 each.....one to order something for myself and one to give away. Guess which I chose (do you know me ~ lol!). I thought I could actually accomplish both prospects by ordering something for moi and reviewing the product and service....and then letting YOU chose something for yourself to enjoy! So please....read on and then go over to NOVICA to see what YOU might like to have. Contest rules below!
There were so many things to chose from amongst what they call their "corporate gifts", from gorgeous art glass to entertaining, jewelry, handbags and travel bags, eco friendly and green gifts and much more. Their artisans hail from all over the world...Mexico, Thailand, India, Brazil, Bali..just to name a few countries.
I chose the necklace by an artist in Thailand named Busarin, as I am completely smitten with her work and will definitely be ordering some more pieces (oh Mr. honey....my birthday is next month if you are reading this:-). The necklace is called Bouquet Of Pearls and once ordered arrived from Thailand in about a week with the lovely hand made presentation gift pouch made from sustainable tree bark paper and an artist story card enclosed. I think that the necklace speaks for itself and will let the pictures do the talking.
So....what do you think? Would you be smitten with a $50 spending spree? Perhaps you aren't a jewelry person. I am enamored with these drinking glasses....perhaps you might select something like these for your home instead?
Can you help spread the word about them.....I know that they would appreciate it and so would I.
