Mother's Day Giveaway!

Mom. Mother. Mommy. Mama.

We have one or are one.

Mother's Day snuck up on me this year, just like Easter.

It occurred to me the other day, that I'd better tackle it! My mother-in-law is easy to buy for. My hubby picked out a hand-carved wooden biscuit-cutter for her awhile back.

Yes, she makes biscuits from scratch. On a regular basis. It's okay to feel sorry for my hubby and children. If it's not in a pop can, it's not happening around here.

I wanted to add something to what every mom on the farm needs, a.k.a. biscuit-cutter. That's when I stumbled upon some beautiful custom made jewelry.

Oh, yes, now I've got your attention. (You don't fool me, I know you were thinking, THAT mom is giving away a biscuit-cutter for Mother's Day? I'm so outta here.)

Dear friends, we're talking jewelry here. Follow me, now.

Star bright Jewels has some lovely pieces. I ordered my mother-in-law a beautiful one-of a kind bracelet. I just received the bracelet in the mail and it is divine!  It's gorgeous and high quality! Christine designs the jewelry and she is offering one of my reader's a $30 gift certificate plus free shipping (to arrive by Mother's Day).

So, go, look around at her store. Come back and leave a comment on this post and tell me what you would choose for yourse--, I mean, someone you love. I will randomly choose one winner Wednesday evening 10 p.m. CST.

The lucky jewelry winner will be announced on Thursday.

Oh, and Mom? I know you are reading this. That's why I'm leaving your Mother's Day tackle a secret.

Everything is beautiful. I can't decide what I like best. I love the Lily Pond bracelet for the name, I would love a piece of jewelry to reming me of my Lilypad Princess. I also like the reminder of the "A Dream is a Wish Your Heart Makes" necklace, my daughter sings that everyday. But the Blue Lapis necklace is beautiful.

Child of the King! said...

Believe it or not...and I'm being very honest here..I'm not the "jewlery nut" that my sister and mother share so avid a love with, however anything my dh gives is treasured!

If I got to choose something I would give the "Lily of the Valley" earrings, to my mother because her birthday is on Mother's day this year and she is a Lily of the Valley!

Thanks for another great gift idea!

Fun stuff... makes me wanna get dressed up and go out with my hubby. I like the cha-cha bracelets. I also like the blue and lavender denim.. pretty but not too flashy. Thanks for another fun give away!!

CanCan said...

I'm doing another give away on my Green blog this week.

It's free, and therefore very frugal. :)
Come over and enter to win!

nottryingforaboy said...

I love the Denim and Lavender Bracelet. It is all very beautiful though. And look at you, doing another giveaway so quickly.

jczellar said...

Ooooh, I think I (oops, I mean "someone I love") would enjoy the Blue Lapis necklace and bracelet! Said loved one is sorely lacking in the blue earring department.

And nope, no one else in my extended family has pierced ears so no temptation there :-) (Awww, shucks, guess I'd just have to enjoy them if I won!)

franticallysimple said...

Those are beautiful! For someone I love I'd choose the Denim and Lavender Bracelet. It'd look so pretty on my, um her wrist.
Thanks!

Karelle said...

I love the Charmed Life necklace. It's so simple and elegant.

The Griffins said...

I really like the cha cha bracelets. I love funky jewlery like the ones she has. Beautiful artwork.

Bunny B said...

So many beautiful items!!! It's so hard to choose. I love the Rhapsody In Violet Earrings, and the "A Dream Is a Wish Your Heart Makes" Necklace. Gorgeous stuff! Thanks!! xx

One La Costa Mom said...

Very pretty! My mom is walking in her 6th breast cancer 3-day this November so I would definitely get the Love That Pink for her. Thanks for the chance to win!

marky said...

That was a tough choice!! I think I narrowed it down to the blue lapas earings and the denem bracelet..
Of course that is what I would purchase for "Moi"!
I found a few others my mom may like!

THopgood said...

hmmm...I think I like the diva hoops best...or maybe the lily pond bracelet....or the denim bracelet...the cha-chas were cool too....or maybe the pink bracelet...or....

Vivian M said...

I love surprises, even the denim kind...so if I win, surprise me!

Karen said...

Oh wow. How would I ever decide on which one. They are all so pretty. Happy Tt.

Edi said...

I would go for a necklace - either the shimmer necklace or the Carribbean Calypso Necklace.

Great give-away.

Stephanie said...

Oooooooh! I love handmade anything! I wish everyone would support them instead of buying from the big stores. The quality and attention to details is usually so much better. Soooo, with all that said, while it was really hard to choose, my favorite were the Del Tango de Roxanne, but the Cotton Candy Pearl Drops were so adorable too. And, the Cha Chas! Going to order some!

The Apron Queen said...

Beautiful jewelry. Burnished & Lovely is screaming my name.

Great tackle. Been working in the sunflower garden myself. Come see!

Niki said...

How gorgeous is the Carnelian Drop Pendant Necklace???

Love it, love it, LOVE it!

Kelly said...

Hard to pick just one! For me, it would be the "Love That Pink" bracelet or the Pink and Green one. So pretty!

bunchofbull-ers! said...

My mom would love the "So Charming" Amethyst and Crystal Sterling Bracelet. Thanks for the great idea for a mom who has EVERYTHING!! And I really like the bracelet that you ordered for your MIL.
Blessings.

Gosh, my wrist feels so NEKKID. If only I could afford to bling it up a little. What a dream come true if someone would conveniently award me with a gift certificate to a Wonderful Jewelry Store. POOR NEKKID WRIST!

And the Rhapsodizing and blog Love and Much Linking that I would do if I WON!!! All three readers of mine would be sure to visit.....

OOH OOH OOH! *naked wrist in the air* Pick me! Pick me!

Liza's Eyeview said...

Oh and I love the Peal Dangle Hoops!

SMC said...

very beautiful things - hard to choose. i'm a bracelet nut and any one of them would be just perfect. thanks for the giveaway!

Becky said...

I am currently on a jewelry strike...the same earrings have been in my ears for months and I haven't even pretended to change them with my outfits.

I've been told however, that the longer the necklace, the taller you look...so 5 ft almost 4 inch me would really need something that dangles past knees...to add a little "height."

Becky, the maid

WorldsGreatestMommy said...

I would pick the rhapsody in violet earrings for my sister-in-law. She's not a mom, but she's been like a second mother to my children and all of her nieces and nephews. They love her so much.

Dawn-Sweet Pea Cakes, etc. Blog said...

Awesome tackle. Which reminds me I should get going on something for my own mother.

Love the giveaway. All the jewelry is beautiful. I would love the Blue Ice or the Capri Blue bracelet for ... my mother. :)

kamewh said...

Gorgeous jewelry! I would choose the "Love That Pink!" bracelet!

jodibee said...

Such gorgeous stuff! I know my mom would LOVE the diva hoops and I love the Fresh Water Pearl Hoops! But it's all beautiful. It was very hard to decide!

Mommy Mechanics said...

I love the blue ice earing and the shimmer necklace, well really I love them all. I wish I knew how to make jewelry like that, they are all so pretty! Great idea!

Lisa J said...

What beautiful items she has. But I was touched by the Charmed Life Necklace. Very simple, yet elegant. I think it is awesome that you are able to do this give away. Happy blogging!

Tanja said...

Oh, I have to tell you that as I as reading about giving your MIL the biscuit cutter, my eyes skimmed the word "jewelry" and instead saw "beautiful custom made jelly". I think I might be hungry.

I liked her laser cut necklace. Nice!

fortyb4forty said...

I love the denim and lavender bracelet and the pink star struck bracelet. I am sure my mother would love either one as well.

Tonya said...

So pretty I want to win...hint hint :) I would get the Blue Ice Bracelet and wear it as an anklet, since she didn't have any I really want one for summer time! Pick me.

Icedream said...

What a great giveaway! Absolutely beautiful jewelry. I loved the Rock Candy Bracelet. I am a mother, I may have to pick myself out a gift. It would probably be better that way, not that I didn't love the wooden doggy toilet paper holder I got last year!

Tara said...

I'm participating in a giveaway from notes from my nest, and I wanted to give you the chance to participate with me. I know you're already doing two giveaways around this time, but here's the info anyway. The details are on my blog. Basically, all you have to do is write a post about what you know now about motherhood that you didn't know before you were a mom, then visit the post I linked and tell me about it. It was definitely a meaningful post for me to write, and I like reading your blog, so I'm sure I'll like reading this post, too.

:)

Also, about your giveaway, my older sister is graduating from college the day before Mother's Day, and I would give the gift certificate to her as a present. I'm willing to bet she'd choose the Denim and Lavender bracelet. (I love it, too.)

Storm said...

Thanks for hosting a giveaway. I think the blue lapis necklace would best suit my mother because it would match her beautiful blue eyes.

Mycrazylife said...

If I were to choose one, it would be the Blue Lampwork Bead Bracelet that you have pictured.

I bought my daughter and I matching charm bracelets with beautiful charms representing our personalities and a heart split in two, one half for her and one for me.

I lost it at a cookout and no one ever returned it. Anyway, I would choose this one because this bracelet reminds me of the beatutiful one I lost.

Gigi said...

What beautiful jewelry! I would choose to "have it all" if only I didn't have a 15 month old tugging at it all the time.

katy said...

It is a tough choice to pick only one. But I think The Wood and Glass Cuff is really unique. Thanks!

Karin said...

Love That Pink-- is my favorite bracelet. Very pretty!

Jamie said...

Lots of cute things...Red Agate and Sterling Bracelet is my fave.

heather said...

Ooooo I love the Sunset Cloisonne earrings. they are so lover-ly.

Kari said...

A dream is a wish your heart makes necklace. SO pretty. thanks!

rella12 said...

I'd get the red agate and sterling bracelet and pay the extra $2.96...it would be great to feel like I had captured fire.

Taryn in NY said...

everything on there is so pretty! I can't decide between the denim and the capri blue bracelets. I love them both. maybe I'll need to splurge!

Heather J. said...

I want the biscuit cutter.

Twice Blessed said...

Hey Kristen, I love the Fresh Water Pearl Hoops and the Pearl Dangle Hoops...I could get one for myself and one for my wonderful niece Happy Mommy!

MSM said...

Well, I NEED the Blue Lapis earrings, and I'd like the Lime Candy Dangles, Pineapple Aqua Earrings, and I'd very much enjoy the Smokey Lavender and Peacock Pearl Dangles.

The jewelry names are as cool as the jewelry itself! I'd like to name a blog "Lime Candy" or "Peacock Pearl" : )

Colleen P said...

Beautiful work! Any mom would be happy to be gifted with this jewelry. I think I would give my mother the Sea & Sky Dangle earrings, because the colors remind me of her and my mom is "lovely, substantial and yet still understated" as the description expains.

Good & Crazy said...

Simply Mauvelous Earrings

Love these! But my mom wouldn't like them...oh well, I'd have to keep them, darn.

I would like to get the Red Agate and Sterling Bracelet for my mom. She just went into remission for breast cancer and works at a school where the colors are orange and black. This bracelet looks like it would fit in great with her school attire!
