GIVEAWAY: It's a Giveaway!

With Thanksgiving and the holiday season just around the corner, I'm kicking off a series of giveaways - this is my first ever (yay!) and the first in a series of fun giveaways with various Etsy designers. Here's your chance to win some great prizes - either as a treat for yourself or a gift for a special someone. It's also a small reminder to consider Etsy this holiday season for amazing and unique hand-crafted gifts, wrapping, and cards. So here we go!

We begin with TWO prizes! How cool is that? You have a chance to win one of two necklaces designed by Courtney Anne Designs. Both are sterling silver 16" necklaces. The first, "White Sand Dollar," has a black freshwater pearl, white opal swarovski crystal, and sand dollar charm. The second, "Silver Seahorse," has a white freshwater coin pearl, black diamond swarovski crystal, and sea horse charm. Both are just beachy and oh-so-cute!

Necklace # 1 - "White Sand Dollar"

Necklace # 2 - "Silver Seahorse"

The first will be given away here at my Big Fat Italian wedding, the other at just Beachy in the city. You're invited to enter both to double your chances of winning. You don't have to enter both, but one name will be drawn from my Big Fat Italian wedding's comments, the other from Beachy's comments.

So, for your chance to win: leave a comment noting your favorite product in Courtney's Etsy shop and also include what your favorite beach is - it can be anywhere in the world. We just want to hear the beachy spots you all love to visit!

You have until Thursday, November 20th to post comments. Winners will be announced on Friday, November 21st. Thank you to Courtney for this amazing giveaway! : )

My favourite product in Courtney's shop is the "monogram collection. single" with white pearl.
My favourite beach in the world is at the Langue de Barbarie (Senegal), a beach right in the middle of river and sea meeting. Magical!

I entered on the other blog already, but I really hope I win! I liked the "crystal colored swarovski crystal 2 branched coral pendant with white fresh water pearls, and smaller swarovski crystals". It really reminds me of the beach!

My favorite beach is Moonstone Beach in South Kingstown RI.

I already entered over at your Just Beachy blog, but I figured I'd double my chances. I love the aqua wave earrings from the seaside collection. Beautiful colors and luster, they're perfectly matched.
My favorite beach is wherever the heck I took this photograph:

It was somewhere on the California coast, about 15 miles out of San Francisco.

To be different...I'm commenting here. :-)

I was going to say the anchor earrings but I just bought them! (so cute, and so reasonably priced I couldn't wait!). So I'll have to say the adorable clam shell necklace.

I think I'm supposed to say the Jersey Shore for favorite beach, LOL, but I'd have to say a "close second" is Jost Van Dyke's (B.V.I.)beach area at the Great Harbour --the perfect place to spand a day. And night!

Charlotte said...

The aqua wave earrings are my favorite!

My favorite beach is in Belize, but I can't remember the name of it.
