300th Post & A Give-Away!

ETA: The jewelery is packed up and on it's way! Rachel, Erica, Jaded, Katie and Lori, I hope you like your new jewelery. Lori, I'll give you yours when I see you. Katie, I still need your address.

This is my 300th post! I thought that that would be some kind of magnificent feat, but it just feels like, well, the 300th post. A no biggy for me, but you get something out of it!

On to the give-away! I was in a pre-spring semi-cleaning kind of mood today and I cleaned out my jewelery box. It was really, the only thing I cleaned out today, so don't be envious of my not-so-clean house :-)

I came across some jewelery that I no longer wear, have never worn or never plan to wear and I decided to give it to you! In fact the only thing I have worn in this group are 3 of the 4 rings and that was a looong time ago. People give me stuff all the time and most of it isn't my style or doesn't fit, in case the hook-on bracelet LD's mom gave me from Venezuela. It's beautiful and I would wear it, if it fit. But it's apparently made for a "small" wrist and though mine isn't "large" this bracelet isn't that comfortable on. But if your wrist is "small" it's yours!

Click on the pictures below to see them in detail.

With the exception of the chandelier earrings, all the metals are sterling silver. The "turquoise" beaded necklace is 18" long but has an extender and can be lengthened to 20-inches.

The rings are fairly small. The two heart rings are about a size 6-6 1/2. The heart/cross and the angel ring are a little larger. Approximately sizes 7-7 1/2. I'm not sure of the exact sizes but if you have fingers that fit in this range, you can have them.

This butterfly pendant is sterling silver but I'm not sure of the chain. It is 18" long but fairly thin. The bracelet on the right is from Swarovski. My friend used to work there many many years ago and she gave me this bracelet because she won it at work. It's pretty, but not my style. it would make a cute cat/teeny tiny dog collar :-) It's about 8 inches long, but you have to slide the leather band through the O-rings to tighten it so you need a fairly small wrist to wear this. Once again- not me.

Claim it and it's yours!

Tell me which piece of jewelery you'd like to have and it's yours. One piece of jewelery per person please. Email me your address to stillhopeful.monica@yahoo.com and I'll send it out after all the pieces are claimed. If none of these are your style, perhaps your niece, sister, or daughter would like them for Easter! Please take them off my hands or I'll throw them away (probably not, but I like to threaten to get your attention).

And if you haven't done so already, please stop by and see Jack's 2nd Birthday pictures.

I love the turquoise necklace and the earrings. Thanks for sharing with us!

What a generous offer. I hardly wear the jewelry that I have, either. Mr. C gets me necklaces as gifts and I wear them, though. Right now my wedding rings are getting tight, which is so strange because they are usually loose. I have tiny fingers (size 3 or 4). Anyway, I hope you find good homes for the lovely things you are offering.

BTW, I answered your question about the name in the comments...not ready to post about it yet. I probably should have just e-mailed you but was too lazy to go into my e-mail account.

Hi there!
Wow you cleaned house! It feels great to get rid of things! I won't fit into those little rings, but I have 2 nieces that would. Any rings you want to get rid of let me know! They would love it!

Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment. Yes, I paid $370 with insurance the tooth extractions so I hear you. If you can wait it out until you get some kind of dental insurance go for it.

this is a very generous give away. i am such an earring fan. i love all of them, but especially the earrings with the turqoise and the ones that dangle a square. But i especially would want the one that 'has my name all over them'.
thank you!

Good for you for cleaning out your jewelry box!

What a great idea! I need to do the same thing. So, stop by my blog in a few weeks. I have a ton of stuff I don't wear anymore!
