win win win (win)

In the time-honoured blogging tradition, it's a giveaway.


The prize is this necklace, created by my sister (the jewellery-maker & artist sister).



Ideal for wearing to blogger meets, country markets, garden parties, wine-tastings, insurgencies, gala balls and all that Stuff of Life.

It's open to everyone, everywhere. A random commentator will be selected as the winner, unless I decide to choose a non-random commentator based on wit, sycophancy or the ability to rise to the occasion. You know the drill.

  3. Since I don't seem to have a remote chance to win Tom's giveaway, I will enter your lovely one....at least I don't have to complete sentences or anything.

  4. If I win it, I'll post it to Chania, so maybe you should save on the air-miles by posting it direct? (just a suggestion, albeit a presumptious one)

  5. I'll throw my hat in the ring but I'm so weary I do not have one spark of wit in my body. xx

  6. Your sister is beautifully talented ~ if her hair is anywhere near as magnificent as yours, Mise, she is lucky as well as talented.

  8. You lucky thing having a talented sister like that. It's really beautiful! I already won soap here so don't put me in the draw. A gorgeous piece, my observation is that you could wear it during the day and also out at night.

  10. other than the wee comment here how would you know if i was standing or not...the only apt way to rise to the occassion me thinks, by typing standing up...

    mc wife would love that...for farmers markets, bookclub and looking pretty while she asks me to put the trash out...

    sycophancy...i had to do a bit of homework on that one...now i know what it means...

  15. Seriously- there's more than one of you talented creative folk? Your family must have got my share too!
    I'm with Traci; when you announce the winner, you should also give us her website details.

  19. That is beautiful! Please enter me in the drawing. I really do think that the lovely necklace would like to travel from the hills of Ireland to the hills of Kentucky. :)

  21. Hi Mise, my random comment and not so random comment. Firstly, the necklace is gorgeous..little green pearls of colour. Love it!

    Secondly, the delicious part. We went to San Francisco Fudge in Bath and let me just say. YUM!!! Wow and wow. I was googling it all the way home to see where and how I could get more.

    I thank you, my family thanks you. We loved Bath too!

  22. Your round trip, first class airline ticket is on the way as I will fly you out to California and put you up in the most amazing hotel perhaps in Beverly Hills as I think that would suit you whilst you mingle with the bright, young things and then perhaps get signed by an agent who falls in love with you at first sight and wants to make you a movie star on just your beauty alone. This is not a bribe as others may think but just a small token of my affection to you.

  23. I'm a bit thick and bit slow and have only just noticed that I am on your LOOK bit on your sidebar - thank you!! I feel thrilled and delighted and honoured and I like that little sidebar feature a lot (and not because I am on it - I liked it before...) And the giveaway, um yes please... but that's not why I'm writing.... okay rambling now...Ann x

  24. after my holiday I am completely bereft of wit. in fact bereft of most things, ability to string words together, eat appropriately, be pleasant and reasonable, etc etc. Leaving me only to say. Please - may I win?

  26. I'm a new Canadian follower but have been reading your blog for a bit. Love the colour of the beads in the necklace - just like the fields of Ireland in pictures. Ireland is on the list for 2012!

  29. Anyone would be delighted to win such a lovely and versatile piece de resistance hand crafted by your gifted sibling. The last gala ball I attended metamorphosed from reverly to an insurrection when the police were summoned by the Festivity Committee. Alas, due to want of appropriate jewelry my mug shot was noticably lacking sparkle.

  34. Ooo!

    *reflects whether 'ooo' showcases my wit, flair for sycophancy, and ability to rise to the occasion. Amends.*

    Ooo! You sister is blumming talented. And what a nice blouse you are wearing.

    *Does that show 'rise' I wonder? Amends.*

    Ooo! You sister is blumming talented. And what a nice blouse you are wearing. I am typing this in full ball-gown to honour the occasion. Am sadly missing a necklace.

  36. They are divine.

    I am unlikely to be able to impress you with a whimsical comment, given I am not Irish.

    I could be a bit threatening I suppose, but that wouldn't really fit with the tone.

    So I will just ask what is it made of? Because I may, just may, be allergic to it.

    xoxo

  37. Please don't count me in for the draw, I already own two fab creations by talented sister. Just want to say this necklace will be even more beautiful in real life.

  38. Just come upon your blog from Finding My Way, and was tickled pink - quite literally. Lovely, love pink sofa in that one post, and while I'm here, would like the enter the giveaway, if I may.

  39. This is a beautiful piece. Would love to win.

    Things I'd never normally think of buying but am weirdly tempted by of late: Bombay Gin, Bonne Maman jam and Campbells Tomato soup...your blog is wreaking havoc with my grocery shopping. I don't even like tomato soup! But don't hold that against me...I love green jewellery. :)

  45. Hi, visiting/following from KarenG's bbq. Lovely bloggy you've got here. I'll try a haiku for the lovely necklace, since it's after midnight here, and my humor's asleep.

  46. I was wandering around the Irish blog directory to see if it was still alive and found your blog through the Galway list - how lucky to come across it on a give-away although a bit late :)
    Lovely blog by the way!
