Toppling Over and It's Giveaway Time!!!

So last Saturday morning we had the joy of attending the Club 56 (fifth and sixth grade) Christmas Party. Sean teaches their class, so we jumped in for the party. It was crazy! LOL! Seriously! The kids were awesome and everyone had an awesome time. We did one of those fun gift swaps where someone reads a story and we pass the gifts left when we hear the word "left" and pass them right when we hear the word "right." Guess what I got!!!!

a tin of sardines.

nope. not joking.

the good thing is that there was a $5 bill tucked in there! LOL! Fun stuff!

BUT....Sean got this fun Topple game! Remember this one? I didn't even know they still made it! So...since we recently got rid of cable we have been doing all sorts of things with our time in the evening and the other night we decided to unwrap this sucker and play! It was SO much fun! I'm pretty sure you can get it at Walmart or Ocean State Job Lot for around $5, and let me tell you it is SO worth it! Buckets of fun!

I have been wanting to do a giveaway for a bit, now, but I was concerned about postage costs. Well, I decided to go ahead and do one that just happens to be light weight! LOL! So, without further ado....

Today's giveaway is this pair of handmade earrings!

My favorite shop is the Boojiboo shop on Etsy. I love the 50's apron! I wish I could make them myself, but I stink at sewing so this shop rocks.

I really like interesting, unique jewelry. Wirelily describes her jewelry as "strong and understated" and while I'd have to agree with her, I get more compliments when I wear my "Lady of the Lake" necklace than with anything else I own.

I'm not savvy enough to know many Etsy shops (wish I was). I have been to a few.....but haven't been loyal as a customer to one.

I do love to shop though.....and to buy.
Great prize.

I like a lot of the shops, but since the Collage Contessa is my real life friend, I gotta say she's my favorite!

Etsy shopped like a crazy woman this week! Yay Christmas!

(Those earrings are PRETTY!)

I am a dachshund lover and the way she has her items displayed with her dogs stole my heart!!! By the way, those are beautiful earrings. Thanks for the giveaway.
