Swapping Yo-Yos and a Giveaway

In the flurry of art mail the other day was a large envelope from Pat,

affectionately known as Ooglebloops.

She had admired the yo-yo brooches I made for the recent Queen Bee 5 swap

and suggested a one-on-one swap of our own.

Flattery will get you everywhere with me!

Being almost the size of my hand, Pat's brooch is, BIG, bold and bodacious!

And I absolutely love it!!!
Saturday, I wore it on a pumpkin orange sweater

which showed off the brooch's colors perfectly!

I don't know if my little offering can compete.

I may have to send her two...

And while you are visiting Pat's blog, you might find

a February giveaway link to Rock Hill Designs.

The prize is the stunning"Tree of Life" necklace above,

made of sterling silver.

*I love to wear silver around my neck!*

Of course, if you leave a comment to be registered to win,

it decreases my chances, but that's the way the game is played!

Game ends February 28.

Thank you for visiting my snowstorm blog and we are so glad to be home. We ended up with a foot and one half of snow and tomorrow morning we are suppose to receive another five to eight inches...whewwee! We went to the grocery and I think as long as we have power we can stay in and I can catch up on my works. We happen to love some of the same is amazing to me how these small little blogs can unite such generous human beings. The tree of life necklace is so elegant...did you use precious metal clay to create your silver charms? Imagine and Live in Peace, Mary Helen Fernandez Stewart
