Spring Giveaway Begins

Let the giveaway begin! We've had some pretty spring days already here in the midwest. The bulbs are blooming, the birds are singing, the grass is turning green. And my ski trip is over so I can get out of cold mode now. Tomorrow is my birthday so I decided to give away a gift. And my gift will be something spring-y. My favorite floral beads remind me of spring. The winner of this giveaway will get to choose either a pair of Pink Floral Bell Earrings or Blue Floral Bell Earrings. I love these flower beads. And the ear wires are sterling silver and handmade by me!

  22. after a long Maine winter, full of snow and ice and bitter cold I love to see Spring arrive! I love the warmer temperatures, rays of sun coming through the window (the cats love to bask in it!) and the sound of birds chirping as they return from their winter down South.
