Monday Giveaway Part 1: Initially You

I have always had a thing for old things. But it seems to go in phases. For a long time, I only read historical fiction.  Then, I became obsessed with older houses. The detailing and quirks just won me over.  Now it has gone to jewelry.  I don't know what it is.  But I love it!   

So when I stumbled on Initially You, I was just in love.  These charms are handmade, and most of the vintage images are taken out of 1950's magazines. 

The best bit is that Initially You  can customized these adorable necklaces. You want to see?




Don't you love it? I literally did a little happy dance when I pulled it out of the package. And then proceeded to wear it every where. I LOVE it!. 




So if you're looking for a little vintage, or you want something personalized, (like a necklace for your blog!)   Initially You is the place to go.

Best news yet: Initially You has offered to give one of my readers 2 of their necklaces!  You know you want one. . .


To Enter: Head over to Initially You and take a peek around. Find the necklace you would pick if you win and come back and tell me what it is. Please leave your email in your comment.

*Blog or twitter about this event and then leave me the link in your comment
*Favorite Initially You on Etsy
*Follow me on twitter
*Make a purchase from Initially You (10 extra entries)


Good luck! Contest will end May 9.  

*I received 2 necklaces for this review.

Nancy Drew's "Hidden Staircase" pendant! Loved that series! We are readers in our family, and that is the one I would pick (although Mona Lisa's "Smile" is a close second). landbeck@verizon.net

I also read only historical novels for a very long time. And I also developed a thing for old houses. I get on these "jags" about things, learn everything I can about it, obsess abott it, then, mysteriously, move onto something else (without ever really letting go of the others). My list is way longer than yours, though. That would be b/c I am so old. I love that we have so much in common!

Wow, hard to pick a favorite, I found several that I absolutely love. But, if you are gonna make me pick I think it would have to be Swirley black and red with breath on it. I need to be reminded to slow down and breath a lot so this would be great.
