Today, July 30th, we are Giving Away...(CONTEST CLOSED)


A Necklace, a Bracelet, a Pair of Earrings, and a Set of Bobbi Pins from Crystal B. Handcrafted Jewelry

I have never posted a picture of myself on this site before. I’m shy like that. In fact in a few days (or maybe in a few hours) you might return to this site and the photo will be removed—because, like I said, I’m shy like that.

But for now I have decided to post a picture of myself. Why? Because I received a package from the very talented Crystal B. the other day and inside was a yo-yo (a yo-yo being a very cute headband). I showed my friend the yo-yo and she asked, “When you wear the yo-yo, will you please take a picture of yourself wearing it and send it to me so I will know how to wear it?”

“Sure,” I replied.
And so I did.
And I have since decided to show it to you too.

So with no further ado.
The yo-yo in my hair.
And me.
It's hard to see the yo-yo in this picture, but I wanted to show how the yo-yo makes a distinct division between the front of your hair and the back of your hair, which makes the back of your hair appear to have a little more oomph. And sometimes, the back of my hair (whether it wants to or not) needs a little more oomph!

Here is the yo-yo from an aerial view:
And not only am I wearing a yo-yo in the above photo, but I also have on another piece from Crystal B. I am wearing a lovely double-chained necklace from her shoppe. It is one of my favorites. The blue brightens most any outfit I wear. And I love the little birds which are holding the strand of blue flowers. Very vintage and fun.

Okay, enough about me. Rather, let's focus on Crystal B. and her gorgeous jewelry! Here are just a few more favorites (and by a few I mean several because there are just too many to choose from):

Dainty little gems aren't they?

I happen to own this "queen bee" bracelet and I just adore it. It really is so unique and it is the most perfect shade of pretty pink

Aren't these bobbi pins just fun and whimsical?

This vintage brass carousel actually has horses that turn, so cute.
Oh, Crystal B., how we love your jewelry!

Crystal B. is wonderful in many ways, she even has a necklace dedicated to Stephanie Nielsen, affectionately known to the blogging world as "Nie Nie." All proceeds from the sale of THIS necklace go to the Nie Nie Recovery Fund. (and by the way, it's beautiful.)

Lucky for us, Crystal B. is generously giving away four different items today so that gives you more chances to win, right? You can enter to win up to FOUR times today as long as you live on this fine planet of ours.

For one entry, leave your first and last name in a comment.
Example: Jane Doe

For a second entry please visit Crystal B.—Handcrafted Jewelry here. Look at Crystal B’s lovely antique jewelry and then return to Give Away Today. In a NEW comment tell us your first and last name and what you would like if you win.
Example: Jane Doe: I would love any of the tiny little flower earrings

For a third entry, in a NEW comment leave your first and last name and tell us about your current hairstyle. Long, short, dark, light, straight, curly, etc? But most importantly, do you like it?
Example: Jane Doe: My hair is the shortest it has been since the 4th grade. But my hubby likes it and I think it is really fun to wear different accessories in it (like the yo-yo).

And for a fourth entry, change your Facebook status to let your friends know that Give Away Today is giving away the most beautiful vintage jewelry today (be sure to include the link http://www.giveawaytoday.blogspot.com/) Then come back to Give Away Today and in a NEW comment tell us your first and last name and that you have changed your status.
Example: Jane Doe: Status Quo

The winners of the gorgeous antique jewelry from Crystal B.—Handcrafted Jewelry will be announced tomorrow, Friday, July 31st. Please visit us then to see if you are our winner and to discover our new giveaways for the day. Thanks!

Lynn said...

Lynn Crapo : My hair is currently growing back out and is now to shoulder length. I do that every other year. My husband loves it longer and so do I during the summer months. I like to wear styles up on the hot days. I have Curly Curly natural hair. Which I USE to hate a lot!! But now since the glorious invention of a straightener......I am loving the fact that I can just about do anything with it. I have fun changing my hair from day to day....curly, straight, long, short. Love it.

Oh....the color? Not sure. I've had it colored since I was 12 years old. Everything from Pink (Punk days) to bleach blonde to Dark brown. Currently it's chocolate brown underneath with blond highlights (different shades) on top. I like it that way.

I love everything but my favorite piece would have to be the Vintage Reclaimed - Lyndley, it is such an amazing necklace but I would love anything.

Jessica Hover

My hair is pretty short, it is a dark brown. I am letting it grow out after almost 4 years of being super short so it is in a very awkward stage right now, so no I don't like it but in order for it to grow I have to deal.

Mary Kay Palguta - my current hairstyle is about shoulder length - actually needs a trim right now. I don't do anything particular to it but I do wear hairbands and a yo yo would probably work well.

Mary Mclain: My hair is gray and medium length with a slight curl. I am not satisfied with it. Currently, it is longer than usual and I need a haircut and maybe a new style.
