New earrings and my first giveaway

I got a package in the mail last week! So exciting. It was a little early birthday gift I decided to give myself. I always admire the jewelry that artists make and sell on, but I tend to not be so careful as I should be with earrings. (I'm working on that- plans are in the works for an earring holder.)

When I found Sara's shop, Simple Serendipity I knew I needed to order a few "basics" to spice up my wardrobe. Everything in her shop is $5 or less! Amazing... I was so happy to see that there are cute jewelry options out there that won't leave you broke.

According to Sara's blog, affordability is important to her:

"I started making jewelry during the poverty stricken years (not quite through them yet) of my husband's graduate school. I know what it's like to not feel like you can spend any money on yourself."

"That's why my jewelry is what it is. Simple, because I'm a plain Jane kind of gal. Affordable, because I want everyone to feel like they can break free from the silver hoops and find something that makes them feel a little more feminine. "


I was also drawn to the name of her shop. One of my and Chris's favorite movies is "Serendipity."
It describes the way we met and got together and means an accidental discovery.

So in honor of my birthday, which is July 6, I decided to host my first give away.
I'm going to give a pair of simple serendipity earrings to one lucky reader.
