lisa is giving one away!

Hello Saturday. Cold, wintry feels like January, Saturday.
Just wanted to pop in and show you my new necklace. I adore it!
Have you seen lisa leonard designs?  They are fabulous.  I truly would love one of each.
If you are looking for a gift for a special someone, (or maybe yourself, ahem) take a look here.  I am sure you will find something.  And if you are trying to stick to the handmade theme for your holiday giving, this couldn't be more perfect.

And guess what? Lisa has decided to give this same necklace to one of my readers!  Leave a comment here by Monday at 12pm EST,  and a name will be drawn.

Have a great one!

As a mom of three and a returning college student taking 14 credits this semester I find very little time for knitting but I love to peek at your blog when I have a spare second. This morning while studying something on the deck caught my eye. I was shocked to see a robin sitting on my deck (keep in mind I live in Minnesota and we got a dusting of snow last night). We watched each other for a good five minutes until my cat wondered over to the door and the bird flew away. It was such a peaceful few moments and that was exactly how I felt when I saw the beautiful necklace on your blog. The bird on the necklace eludes a sense of peacefulness just like my little friend from this morning. Enjoy your beautiful necklace and many peaceful moments when you wear it.

weedwacker said...

Enjoy the necklace. It is a work of art!

Jo said...

Wow! I recently found your blog, and love your knitting. I have a teenage son, and am finding inspiration from what you have made for your boys.
