Blog Lovin' - Ava Maria Necklace Give Away

Ava Maria Necklace

Earlier this year, one of the most wonderful women, I have never met (but feel like I have known for years) sent out a Blog Lovin request in my honor...I was very sick at the time and Lee knew that I could use a little extra support and did you ever send it my way. I couldn't believe it when I would open my email account and it would be filled with well wishes...

Necklace will arrive in gift box.

It couldn't have come at a better time, I was getting worn out with doctor's appointments, and therapies... Your well wishes gave me the much needed lifting of spirits - to get me through...a tough time.

So, in the spirit of giving back... I would like to send out a call for Blog Lovin' for Lee at Weber's World - The Way I See It and Tammy at the Other Side of Me , the girls behind the wonderful offerings of Twigs and Feathers . Lee is in the process of uprooting house and home for a move to Maine and Tammy could use some cheering up....

Ava Maria Necklace

I will be giving away this Ava Maria necklace in a random drawing. All you need to do to enter the drawing is to pop over to Lee and Tammy's blog and leave a comment of encouragement and well wishes a.k.a Blog Lovin'. Then pop back and leave me a comment when you are finished. It's that simple...I know you will send good vibes their way...

The Ava Maria necklace features a beautiful, vintage Catholic charm and a natural pearl drop suspended from leather cords with a magnetic closure.

Magnetic Closure

Add a post and link back to this blog posting and receive an additional entry into the drawing. Spread the love....

The drawing will be open until Thanksgiving day, November 26th - a symbolic date of thankfulness for all the wonderful "Sistahs" (girlfriends) that are always there when you need them most ...
