Winning Blues!

It's another BLUE MONDAY, sponsored by Smiling Sally. This is a fun way to show off things in the color of blue! Things you own, or things you see around town. Home decor, jewelry, cars, anything goes! Check out what I've got this week and then click on over to Sally's to see what others have, and think about joining us next week!
Last week was the quarterly Bloggy Giveaways. I entered many, but won NONE. However, I did receive winnings from some other giveaways that happened earlier in the month, so I am not bitter! Really. I mean it.I won this elegant wristlet from Heather Ohly at Blue Bird Studio. The fabric is a satin Asian motif and the wrist ring is bamboo. It's a great size because it can hold a cell phone, which most wristlets cannot. She has all sorts of items, bags, ornaments, gift items, all in different motifs.
A few days later a tiny package was in my mailbox. It was this beautiful scrabble tile pendant from Peachy Pendants. The design is from an Amy Butler fabric. I chose a casual ball chain with which to wear it, but she has sheer ribbons, satin cording, and other options as well. The pendants are currently "buy 2, get 1 free". This would be a great gift, at only $6.00 a pendant, plus you'd be supporting a woman-owned business and buying handmade, something a lot of us are trying to do this holiday season.
The final winning blue is something I WILL WIN at the end of November. You are welcome to try and win, but remember that ultimately it will be me! The SITS girls are giving away a Bissell Healthy Home vacuum! This is a $300.00 value!!! Currently I have a $50.00 Hoover that I bought 20 years ago. I know, you can't believe I'm old enough to have needed my own vacuum 20 years ago, and that it lasted this long. No problem if you rarely use it! Check out all the info about the vacuum at SITS, and if you're not already member you really should sign up. It's the only way to win.
Now you can click on Sally's link and visit all the other Blue Monday participants. Don't forget to vote tomorrow!

Hi Elizabeth
I will let you win the Bissell. I don't think they will ship it all the way to Canada. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you.

P.S. I'm catching all of you early birds and saying hello.

Oh, Elizabeth, I know what you mean, I did not win a single thing from the carnival. BooHoo!!

Good luck on the Bissell ~ crosses fingers for you.

Well who cares about the silly old carnival if you win all of this blue stuff? I laughed when you joked about not being old enough to need a vacuum 20 years ago. I needed one 50 years ago! Happy Blue Monday!

Pretty blue bag and pendant! Good luck on the Bissell. I can't believe your vaccuum has lasted 20 years. I should have bought a bissell!

Melissa said...

Good luck! It's not a vacuum but you have been tagged.

I didn't win anything in the bloggy carnival, either. :-)

What a pretty wristlet! And that little tile is lovely. I will check out that site -- as well as the vacuum contest. :-)

Good morning Elizabeth! I hope you do win that vacumn, girl. Your 20 year old vacumn probably really should be retired :0)
Have a wonderful week!!

Mojo said...

I never worry about the giveaways... it's all about the photography for me.

But I'm happy to see you're in a winning way -- even if it was the "wrong" contest.
