A Belated One (and Giveaway)

Time seems to have flown by so quickly that I didn't even register it initially - only in retrospect did I realize that this little blog of mine is now almost 13 months old. So happy bakers' dozen me!

I know I've said this before, but never did I ever imagine when I wrote my first post that over a year later I'd still be posting and that real life people would actually be reading my rambling rambles! Much less such a wonderful community of generous and sharing ladies like yourselves!


As a mini thank you for all of you who have taken time out of your lives to read and comment and share on my blog, I would like to offer up the following for one of my lovely readers to win - the beautiful aspasia necklace from Etsy seller tree & kimball!

tree & kimball is the brainchild of former Anthropologie jewelry designer Lisa Bruemmer and her pieces are designed using recycled patches of vintage lace. The aspasia necklace is a dainty piece I could envision as a great finisher to a filmy top or casualed out just over a striped tee or solid turtleneck.


As a bonus, I will also be giving that same lucky gal her choice of either a $25 gift card to:

OR

Entering is simple simple:
  1. Be a public follower of respect the shoes on Google Friend Connect
  2. Leave a comment below on this post with your e-mail address (if it is not already on your profile or blog) with which gift card you'd prefer
* For an extra entry, you can blog about this giveaway and leave the link as an additional comment.

And that's it! Contest is open to everyone, and ends on Sunday, February 6, at 11:59 p.m. EST.  Winner will be selected by our mutual bestie, random.org!

Tiny print - this giveaway is not sponsored by or associated with tree & kimball, Anthropologie or J.Crew. I like their stuff and I hope you do too!

You have an awesome sense of humor and I always find myself simultaneously chortling over what you wrote about your day and marveling at the amazing ensembles you create! And how beautiful is that necklace?? (hint: VERY pretty)
