{Blog Sponsor: The Sunshine Studio}

This giveaway is now closed!


Bringing a little bit of sunshine your way...


Lory Mabe, the creative gal behind The Sunshine Studio is a super great blog friend of mine. Every time we communicate she's as sweet as can be. Lory makes and sells colorfully fun jewelry. She also has a blog {imagine that}! I encourage you to click the link and read what The Sunshine Studio is about. You'll also discover other Etsy artists and take part in special sales and giveaways!



I applaud Etsy sellers that feature other Etsy artists on their blogs. Besides, it's a great way to keep all things handmade moving full-circle. Actually, it wasn't that long ago that Gussy was featured on Lory's blog. But... this post is about Lory. And like I said, she's super great :)



Her items are so cute, they even make it to the front page of Etsy!!! {No surprise here, though.} I can't get over that this is a little acorn {err, I mean pine cone} on a chain. Too adorable!



This ring is my favorite: It's called Maggie
and it's green {my favorite color}! I have a yellow flower ring and it's one of my favorite accessories I own. Rings like this are an easy way to bring a splash of color to your outfit without making a fuss out of your morning. I like a no-fuss morning ;)



Wherever you go, no matter what the weather, always bring your own sunshine.

Hey Lory, I have a little request. Please bring this item back to your shop. I see you've sold it 11 times. Yes, I am weird and went through your list of SOLD items and counted. Eleven times this baby was bought. And I bet it would sell 11 times again if it was available. {I mean, how cute is this bracelet?!} OK, thank you.




{Now for some fun!}
One lucky reader will win this gorgeous, vintage-inspired ring:


The maroon chrysanthemum cabochon is made of lucite, and is securely attached atop an adjustable antiqued brass filigree ring. This elegant ring will come packaged in a pretty gift box tied with ribbon.

Oh what do we have here?! I bet your pretty maroon ring will come in a box just like this:



To enter:
Leave a comment {just one, please} with your favorite item from Lory's shop.

The giveaway will close Friday, December 4 at 12 pm CST, and the winner will be announced the following day.

And as always, you ABSOLUTELY have to have an email address listed on your blog profile, blog, or the comment you leave. Don't make me hunt you down {'cuz I'll pick someone else!}

Good luck!
