Giveaway -Not All Who Wander Are Lost Bracelet


Hello sweet friends,

It's time for a Prairie Thistle giveaway....

I have chosen one of my favorite expressions... Not All Who Wander Are Lost.  With Spring right around the corner, I have been venturing out on the warm, sunny days visiting my favorite antique shops.

For this bracelet, a vintage spoon bowl was flattened, textured, stamped and then a sweet soaring bird was soldered in place. 

This bracelet is comfortable to wear with the leather cording that forms to your wrist.  The extra large lobster clasp makes the bracelet easy to take on and off.  All and all a sweet bracelet.  Perfect for the wanderer.


The giveaway will be open until March 20th..  I will announce the winner on the 21st which is the first day of Spring.

All you need to do to enter the giveaway:

1.  Become a follower of the Prairie Thistle blog.
2.  Share the giveaway by posting the giveaway on your blog.
3.  Post a comment - let me know where or how you love to wander...



Grab the Button at the Sidebar to your Right.

Blessings - Julie

I love to wonder the back roads of Vermont...the little antique shops, restaurants and parks...over the hills and on to the next town.

Julie--I, too, am already a follower and have purchased some of your jewelry so I know from whence I speak: your stuff is incredible. I will post to my blog if I can grab the button correctly. If not, I will try again until I get it right. Thanks for the great opportunity to possibly win another wonderful Prairie Thistle creation. I get so many compliments on the one I bought from you.

I am a follower, and I will be sharing your giveaway by posting about it. I love to wander walking through the trails of state and county parks here in Central Florida with my husband and often with two dogs, and you are so correct, we are not lost.

Alice said...

Julie, I love your flattened spoon creations! And the sentiment is a lovely one. My dream is to wander through every state in the U.S. at some point, but artistically I would love to try every medium that I have time for.

You can do it said...

Oh I am new to your blog, but I am so happy I found it.

I posted a link on my Facebook; http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1214719443.

I wander a lot with my son and his imagination. I cannot tell you how many times we've played that his bed was a boat and if we were knocked off due to a "storm" we would have to pretend to swim back. We would also use Legos and whatever else we could find to make forts, etc... I could go on and on but I will always cherish those times with him.

I tell you where I'd LIKE to wander- on a beach somewhere!!

Julie-
as you know I love your creations and am a big fan and follower of yours! I love the bracelet, especially the bird as it reminds me of being at my grandarents and watching all the birds they had visiting their bird feeders. I also loved to wander around in their garden and look at God's handiwork. Keep creating!

Love ya-

hi, I wandered over from Ange's incredible blog to find your beautiful jewelry. I love this bracelet. I feel it encompasses my life at the present . . .I wandered through my youth and guided myself on all the many paths of college & motherhood, commanding my household & keeping the peace. Now, I am wondering & wandering what the rest of my life shall be . . .I hope my wandering has the fearless strength to follow my heart.

This is one of my favorite quotes, so YES, put me in your drawing! I like to WANDER around etsy and I get LOST in my thoughts. So many ideas, so little time!

I wander in my 1500 foot native prairie garden, and often while weeding watch my wife do the same (for whom this giveaway would be a gift). Feel free to visit my blog and see photos of where I wander.
