My 2nd Blog Giveaway!

I've decided to have another giveaway. This necklet is handknitted from a lovely thick, soft wool blend yarn that I hand-dyed a soft, pale gray. It has been embellished with a kid silk and mohair ruffle with tiny raindrop sequins and has been finished with a shabby chic hand-dyed silk ribbon. It attaches at the back with a cute button. This is a lovely accessory to wear somewhere nice on a cold night.

All you have to do to win the necklet is:

1. Be a follower/follow me.
2. Leave a brief comment telling me which item in my etsy shop is your favorite and why.

That's all you have to do! I will draw the winner's name out of a hat on Thursday September 10th.


  1. What a great giveaway! I am a follower, and I like the Tangerine and Cocoa Scarflette.

    Thanks for the giveaway, I have several on my blog, too! Check them out!


  2. Beautiful!
    I love a lot of your items, but the Olive Necklet with Wine Corsage is just gorgeous!!

  3. I'm following you! :)

    My favorite item is the Fall Trumpet Flower Lariat. I love the colors! It reminds me of the changing leaves. http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=28663057


  4. Quite partial to your newest listing Fall Trumpet Flower Lariat. Was it made on your trip? The colors and textures are great...helps me remember Fall us just around the corner!

  5. I actually made the Fall Trumpet Flower Lariat before my trip. I did some knitting in Scotland that I will post later this week - pretty simple knits because I didn't have access to all my dyes and embellishments and was pretty busy most of the time.

  6. I'm a follower. I love the Cashmere Pink Lace Shrug! It's beautiful!

  7. I am a follower and I LOVE the Caplette in Sweet Pea and Chartruese
    I just found your shop and love it!

  8. Hi Shirley - I really love your work and have been following on etsy for a little over a year. I was really happy to find the blog. While I'm typically drawn to your items with the gorgeous bright colors and textures, I'm very attracted to the simple and vintage elegance of the cashmere cocktail capelet in sage. Very beautiful!

  9. JUST BEAUTIFUL! All of your items on etsy are gorgeous & so unique - I love them all! But especially I LOVE the Red Brick & Gingham fingerless gloves! Every winter I cut the fingertips off of cheap gloves so that I can use my fingers to type, work, cook, etc. These are WONDERFUL! I am so happy to be a follower & thank you so much for visiting my blog & leaving such a nice comment! You have a lovely blog!

  10. Thanks so much to everyone who entered this giveaway, I appreciated your comments and it was interesting to hear which items are your favorites. I had my daughter pick the winner out of a hat today (my kids love doing this) and the winner of my 2nd giveaway is BONZAI BEADS! Congratulations...and keep your eyes out for my next giveaway in about 2 weeks.
