In Spirit of Sharing and a Giveaway


Mary Jane Dodd has a wonderful way with words. Whenever I  read her blog I come away inspired.  Not only that, but she also makes the most beautiful jewelry; jewelry that carries a message.

Recently she hosted a giveaway for earrings created with the sweet charms you see in the photo above.  Her intention was to give two pairs to the winner, and the winner could share one pair with another person.  Izzy was the winner and she opted to give both pairs to me (Thank you Izzy!).

Here's the lovely package I received.

And the inside--It's a tea box cut apart--how clever!


 And the gorgeous earrings.

In honor of Mary Jane's intention to share, I will be giving away one pair of these earrings. All  you have to do is leave a comment here on the blog.  And if you choose to spread the word on social sites just leave a separate comment for each. 

The winner will be announced on January 30th. 
And if the winner chooses to continue the spirit of sharing in some way, that would be wonderful.

I'm with you, I love her way with words! Her jewelry is so unique and inspiring. Those are such beautiful earrings, I'd love to put my name in for them. And I can definitely think of a way to continue the joy....
P.S. I've been having google issues, so if you can't get to my email from my name, it's: smoore81@sc.rr.com

Her work is always so thoughtfully created. I would love to win a pair of her lovely earrings! Thank you for the chance. :)

If I win, I'll keep the momentum going by offering a pair of earrings or a necklace on my blog.

Thank you!

Miss Mary Jane is a precious soul. I have had many a conversation with her and I always feel supported and uplifted. I tell her all the time that I think her words should be in a contemplative day book. I have a pair of earrings from her that I treasure. Someone will surely be a lucky one with these! Enjoy the day.

How have I not found Mary Jane before? What a treasure! I'm so glad Izzy gifted these lovelies onto you! And how sweet of you to share them on. When the first photo (from Mary Jane's blog) loaded, I gasped "Oh my!" I did not choose a single word for 2013, but rather words. For some reason "Be kind, be gentle, be true" keep coming into my mind these first weeks of January. Whether I might win or not, I do think I'll need to order a pair or two. Thank you, Alice!

Would love a pair of these earrings as I just got a new short haircut. They would really show up nice now. And what a nice message to send out in the world.
