sea stars (give-away)


sea stars make me smile.
Summer things,
A straw basket, an espadrille, a boater and a strand of pearls with a sea star.
I have an old brooch that I love, it is of some sort of crustacean and it always comes out for Summer, pinned to a simple sleevless shell or shift.
Well this lovely freshwater pearl necklace is made by Julie Lorusso and she is giving one away to one of you lucky readers!
What sort of item says Summer in your wardrobe?

Winner shall be randomly selected and announced on friday.
I am busy finishing up a few deadlines...before the four day weekend.

Thank-you Julie for your kindness.
Julie keeps a fabulous blog, Monkey Grass Hill.

Stunning necklace! My summer favorites are all of my Lilly Pulitzer sundresses and monogrammed sandals. The starfish will look just perfect!

This is a stunning necklace:)
To me Summer means eating mangoes, wearing shorts and a hat, eat al fresco and enjoy and ice-cream on the way back home from the beach...sigh! We are going towards winter in Australia unfortunately! But it's good in a way because now it's your turn to enjoy the hot season!

Never thought of the combination before but it makes so much sense, both being of the sea and all. I love it. And you've hooked this little fish into commenting!
