Friday's Fancies and a Giveaway!

Happy Friday!

Today's post is a two-fer! First, I am linking up with {av}'s Long Distance Loving theme this week: Summer Sunset. BUT! The earrings in this set are what I'm going to give away to one of you lovely readers!


Friday's Fancies: Summer Sunset



It's getting chilly-ish in the evenings in Chicago, so this light ensemble would be perfect on the windy beach watching the sunset. The scarf kind of reminded me of a sunset as well!

And how about those earrings, right?!?!

Well, I just so happen to have them in my possession for one of you! Aren't they beautiful?

Last night I went to a trunk show at Fleur de Lis for Limbo Jewelry and Soiree Weddings & Events. Everyone was so friendly and welcoming, the store was full of bubbly, treats and flowers, and the jewlery? Ah, the jewelry...



Edson and Anne, owners of Limbo Jewelry, are in town for the art festivals this summer. Their store is in Austin and I will definitely stop there on my next visit! Edson creates each piece in their Austin shop.  I enjoyed listening to the couple's story of how they met and got to where they are by doing what they love. It was fun to hear an artist's journey and inspiration for creating his work. In a way it gives the jewelry a story, providing meaning and a memory of the experience.

I mean, think about it: if you're like me, we usually just pick up some cheap stuff in stores or online because it's trendy.  Rarely do I take the time to stop at real jewelry kiosks at art shows and festivals. Listening to Edson and Anne made me realize that I should get to know the artisans on my festival trips, to give more meaning to the art I wear!

The trunk show had some classic, creative, and dainty baubles that definitely struck my fancy, which is why I have the Lotus Earrings to give away to one lucky winner!

Click on the Rafflecopter link below and enter! The giveaway is open until midnight Thursday, August 23 and I will announce the winner next Friday!
