Over the past few weeks, I have gotten two amazing surprises in the mail. The first was this necklace:
When my amazing necklace arrived, it didn’t have any note with it. I hadn’t ordered it, and I was unsure where it came from. I do enjoy entering giveaways, so I figured I had won something and completely forgotten about it.
I contacted Pretty Things By Meg and asked. I also tweeted about my confusion. @bbgoad responded: She has sent me the necklace! I’m a member of the Love & Envelopes Birthday Club through Aisle to Aloha. Each month, we get a girl to send a birthday card to. Beth, or @bbgoad, was one of the gals to get me last month, and the amazing necklace was my birthday gift!
I have to say: The necklace is definitely an attention-getter. I got so many compliments on it! Thank you, Beth and Meg 🙂
For my second piece of surprise awesome: I won the aPearantly Sew giveaway through Beth’s blog (yes, the same Beth who gave me the amazing purple ruffle necklace), dot … in the city. The prize was a gift certificate, and I found myself completely unsure how to use the card.
I narrowed it down to two amazing clutches. The problem: Do I get the one that will go with more? Or do I get the one with the amazing, crazy pattern but will be harder to match? I even posted the question to the Jaclyn1423 Facebook fan page. I also posted it to Twitter.
I couldn’t decide, so I told Alison, the amazing seamstress behind aPearantly Sew, to pick for me!
She totally picked right.
Not that she could have picked wrong — this was her other choice for me.
The clutch is soft and expertly sewn. The inside is a neutral, pretty gray. The clasp is magnetic, and I so can’t wait to use it.
I haven’t gotten these things yet, I have made a few orders lately. I’ve had my eye on a pair of Moorea Seal earrings for a while, so when she announced a 25 percent off code through her blog, I was all over it.
Have you gotten any awesome goodies in the mail lately?
