Valentine Giveaway for the Mommies! - The Magic Onions

Valentine Giveaway for the Mommies!

Have you noticed that I have a few new sponsors? You can see their gorgeous buttons to the right of this page. I can’t tell you how excited I am to have them on board… their Etsy shops are magical! Have a look for yourself…
Each week, I will be introducing one of them. This week, I am delighted to present Patti from Skipping Stones Jewelry.
Patti’s shop is packed with the most darling pins, broaches, earrings and pendants. I first noticed Skipping Stones when I was browsing on Etsy… browsing on Etsy is one of my favorite things to do! Yes… I put the kids to bed and then spend the next 20 minutes ‘unwinding’ on the pages of Etsy. I am always completely amazed at the constant artistry and creativity I find there, amazing creations made by people like us. For me, it is motivating and empowering to see how others have expressed their creativity. It drives me to do the same and I love it and am ever so grateful.
On one such evening, I stumbled upon this toadstool pendant
I was smitten! Just look at it… it is truly delightful, isn’t it. A little yellow toadstool in a bed of moss… you couldn’t speak more to my soul if you tried. So, into Skipping Stones I went and spent the next 30 minutes exploring all of Patti’s gorgeous creations. I loved her felt flower corsages too… the rich textures, the colors, the pretty embellishments.
And then I came to her nature inspired earrings. Look at these sweet Soleil Dangles… you’d just have to feel happy wearing these!
As for these little Blue Bells! Oh my gosh… don’t you just ‘have to have?’
I have asked Patti to set a pair like this aside for me as my Sister-in-law’s birthday is coming up (Carrie, don’t read this). My brother and sister-in-law lived in England for the longest time. Each spring they would take a trip into the blue bell forests. Have you ever been in a blue bell wood? It is pure magic! I have a photo of the two of them, sitting together, happy and smiling, in the middle of hundreds and hundreds of tiny blue flowers. They look like the King and Queen of the fairies. It is my favorite photo of them. In march, we are traveling to New Zealand to see them. It will be the first time I will meet my two nephews and I could cry just thinking of how I am looking forward to seeing them. I couldn’t get a more perfect birthday gift for Carrie, could I?
So, lucky you… in celebration of Valentines Day, Skipping Stones is giving away this Old Fashioned Sweetheart Broach to one lucky reader. Isn’t it beautiful?! It is made of a wool felt blend, filled with cotton batting and embellished with glass seed beads. It is such a pretty pink, so soft and gentle.
To enter Patti’s Giveaway, please leave a comment at the end of this post. One lucky reader will be drawn and announced on Wednesday evening, 3rd February. The Giveaway is open to all international readers, so be sure to leave your comment, wherever you are. Once again, if you Blog, Tweet or Facebook about this Giveaway, let me know and I’ll enter your name an extra 3 times in the draw.
Thank you, Skipping Stones, and welcome to The Magic Onions. Your shop is gorgeous and I’m sure there’ll be many of us who send your link to our husbands, hoping for one of your beautiful creations for Valentine’s Day!
Blessings and magic and GOOD LUCK to all!
