a spring giveaway.

4.02.2011

This giveaway is now closed. Stay tuned for the winner!

Spring is my favorite season. The soft temperatures, the flowers delicately unfurling, the world awash with pastel color, the waking from winter  I love it all. (And for those of y'all that have been reading my blog lately, the fact that I adore spring is not something new ;))


To celebrate the arrival of spring, I'm giving away this gorgeous little photographer necklace, generously donated by Laura of Violet Bella.


Swoon. Is it not the prettiest thing? And that tiny touch of robin's egg blue is absolutely perfect.
