Turquoise Tuesday Giveaway!


Yippee! It's Tuesday, which means turquoise! This isn't just any Turquoise Tuesday though. Today would have been my beloved grandmother Ardith's 90th birthday. She left us two Octobers ago and I miss her every day.

I wanted to do something to celebrate her birthday and to show how much it means to me that you take time out of your day to come visit me. Something to make it a happy day of celebration for us all. That's when I decided to do my first ever Fringe Giveaway. It just so happens that Ardith's birthday falls on a Tuesday this year.

To tie it all together, I chose to make this extra special Lily Lariat in turquoise. I made the lily leaves from a gorgeous butterfly pattern cotton fabric. When wearing this design, the lilies flutter about with your movements. To me, that's a somewhat magical combination with the butterfly fabric and the fluttery movement of the petals....

This Lily Lariat is a perfect spring and summer accessory. The colors are enchanting and will go with any complexion. Also, it's the perfect splash of color to take along on vacation. It takes up very little room, making it excellent for even the lightest packers.

You can see more examples of how to wear this style of lariat and other details here.


So, are you ready, sweet beautiful friends...?

-To enter leave a comment on this post. Winner will be drawn on Friday, March 26th.

-For additional entries, follow my blog, or mention this Giveaway on your blog or on Twitter, and let me know you did in a separate comment.

-If you already follow me, mention that and I will add an additional entry.

Good luck, everyone!



Finally, I want to thank you all. For those of you who stop in often, always with a positive comment, thank you a thousand times over for being supportive, generous and caring friends. To those of you who are new to my blog, thank you so much for dropping in and I hope we will have many more meetings...
Have a beautiful day, dear ones...xo


P.S. In case you missed it yesterday, I hope you'll take a moment to check out my Blog It Forward - Inspiration post. Also, did I remember to thank you for being you?

Everytime someone wears this beautiful lariat, they will be honoring Ardith's memory. What a sweet tribute to her. I've loved the posts you've done about her, especially the kitchen one, as my Gma's kitchen stuff was priceless to me also.
She passed away two years ago as well and I think about and miss her everyday too. Tear~
