Antique Jewelry Hull, a New Project, and a Giveaway!

Happy November!

This past weekend, I visited a local antique store for the first time. Actually, I had tried to go there before, but I got totally lost!

Ok, I also got lost this time….And I was only 5 miles away from it!!!

It took me an hour to find it- thank goodness for cellphones with internet on them!

Luckily, I *did* find it! I found a gorgeous blue headband with silk millinery, and tons and tons of jewelry!

Most of the earrings and pins I bought were only $1-1.50!!

Dazzling rhinestones in pink and blue…

Blue, white, and cream pearls, cameo earrings, and a sweet necklace.

This weekend, I also worked on a new style of my Noel blocks.

These ones are covered with flocked vintage wallpaper and have the silver German glass glitter lettering. Which ones do you like better?

Lastly, in celebration of the upcoming holiday season, I’m having a giveaway!

I am surprised to see that it’s a new project. I have to give credit to the designer for creating such wonderful piece of earring and pins. The best part is that they are in affordable price range. Please tell me how I can be part of this giveaway.
