BIG, HONKIN' GIVEAWAY AT OLD GREY MARE PRIMITIVES...

Suzan, at OLD GREY MARE, is having a giveaway!  Not just any giveaway, but one that involves 8 separate gifts, from 8 separate artisans...more fun than a barrel of monkeys (those of you who know me know that's a touchy subject).  I must say that I was more than a little honored to have been asked to join in on the shenanigans.
Z's invitation to participate came at the "perfect right time".  I have recently gone back to teaching at a brand new quilt store in town (SEW OBSESSED QUILTER'S BOUTIQUE), and had just written up a new pattern for an upcoming class - this is the "cover girl" for the pattern.  Quilted, wrapped up, and bound for a new home... 
This travel jewelry roll came to fruition at a request from my Mom last year, as she was told this was a "seasonal" item that the stores did not carry year round?! I still can't quite figure out WHICH season you might find these in but, in any case, I solved the problem by designing one for her.  Nine separate, zippered, clear vinyl pockets will hold your jewels, safe and sound, in suitcase or purse.  The bottom two pockets are large enough to house bangle bracelets.
And, since I couldn't very well give away a jewelry case without a piece of jewelry, one of my Rhinestone Cowgirl Crystal Chandelier necklaces will be included...this one complete with hand formed brass links; new chain; vintage doo-dads, repurposed jewelry bits; showcasing the "King of the Cowboys" and his trusty steed ~ Roy Rogers and Trigger ~ behind vintage Vegas casino glass, surrounded by tiny rhinestones.  A little shameless self promotion - more available in the Etsy shop.
Eight gifts, in all, for this clever giveaway - the fabulous remainder, from 7 VERY talented artisans, can be seen at  OLD GREY MARE
Z is a hell of a gal - if anyone can pull off a giveaway of this magnitude, it will be her.  She has all the details, at her blog, on just what needs to be done to enter (you're gonna' be visiting some pretty rockin' blogs in the process - you'll be glad you did).  Make sure you tell her I sent you ~ much luck on your entries!  Happy Tuesday - Tanya
