Old But New Giveaway

Today, for my 200th post (please, please, hold your applause) I am going to do a giveaway featuring my buddy and pal, Samantha of Old But New! She blogs, she makes one of a kind jewelry, she eats ice cream sundaes…she does it all.  I asked Sam to type up a little bio about herself:

My name is Samantha Leonard and as I always say, I make pretty things from old things.  From a very young age, my grandfather and mother would take me out shopping from garage sale to garage sale on Saturday mornings, so I learned early on the value and beauty that can be found in other peoples castaways.

My favorite things to make are bracelets out of vintage brass fishing swivels, I love that you can take something as plain and industrial as that, and transform it into a feminine and delicate looking piece of jewelry.  And lockets, I’m crazy about lockets.  Which is why when my new and dear friend Kearsie approached me about this giveaway, I was happy to donate these little locket earrings to the cause.  Thank you and good luck, everyone!”

This giveaway is for one pair of two heart shaped vintage brass lockets with flowers and vines etched into the front hang from simple raw brass hooks.



To enter:

1.  Please head to my buddy Sam’s etsy shop here and peruse her beautiful array of jewelry. 

2.  Come back here and let me know your favorite item and a safe way to contact you. 

I will pick the winner on June 8th by the Random Numbers Generator. 


Also, a shout out to my homies in Melbourne, you are awesome and I had a blast with you this weekend!  Also, are shout outs cool anymore?  How about this:  ##peace.
