Maria from LeelaBijou recently hosted a giveaway on her blog http://lilbitof.blogspot.com/2009_02_01_archive.html . It was maybe the 2nd or 3rd time I had entered a giveaway and I truly was a bit gobsmacked when she let me know I had won!!
When the mailman recently brought me a package from the Canary Islands I was very excited as I knew it was the necklace!! Maria had super gorgeously included a beautiful mountainous photo from Gran Canaria, a really sweet photo that read ' Congratulations dear Kerrin' and a lovely note AND a discount voucher! Phew!!! She's got her marketing skills done well!! You see, I have been coveting some of her work .. so how could I not go visit her shop and use the voucher?!!!
Funnily enough (she must be a mindreader) she included a mars bar too .... it was yummy!
So I will share with you in the photo below the perfectly lovely necklace I won and then just a few images of some of the other unique and wonderful creations that Maria has in her Etsy shop LeelaBijou do please go visit her shop!
This is MY necklace :D (but that's not me in the photo .. i'm not that white, oh ok, i'm not that slender either ... oh ok, probably my boobs don't sit that firmly these days too ... geesh! )
