New earrings are always exciting, doubly exciting when you get them for free.
One of the great thing about following various blogs is that someone is always having a giveaway. I always enter Pioneer Woman’s giveaways but my chances are slim when 29,391 (seriously, that’s how many people have entered for the most recent red Kitchenaid as of 9:05 pm on a Thursday night) other fans are doing it to. If I ever win one of those fancy-schmancy artisan Kitchenaid mixers you will be the first to know.
In the mean time I’ll try my chances at smaller giveaways. This summer my blogger friend, Irene, at Speed Chic gave away a $50 gift certificate to Novica.com and I won! Whoohoooo! It pays to be persistant.
These are the earrings I picked out…
Because Novica is all about free trade and promoting artists who are trying to support themselves, these lovely little earrings came with a nice little note from some woman in Bali. I doubt that the note was actually from some Bali village woman but rather from some Novica staff person. But still, it was charming and made me feel like I was supporting the Balinese economy (is Balinese a word?).
They go with everything, I’ve worn them all summer long and in fact, I’m wearing them right now.
Did you know it’s really hard to get a good picture of your own ear. I just discovered that.
So, thank you Irene for the new earrings! I love them.
