The Rose Bowl Giveaway



Here it is! My favorite purchase of my day with Eddie. It's a vintage jewelry box. It's made of a beautiful alabaster with a tiny tinge of mint green. When I saw it I just knew it was the perfect gift for one of my awesome readers!

You can really do anything with this... put your rings in it, use it as a catch all for change or keys, or just put it on a shelf or dresser and let it sit pretty.

To enter to win this beauty, just comment to this post. I dedicate this giveaway to the amazing woman who made Sunday happen for me, and to Eddie and Jaithan, too! I'll draw a name randomly on Saturday.
