Vintage giveaway

how cute is this business card!?
Way back in, oh I don't know, maybe February I was looking around Twitter when I came across a tweet by a local fashion blogger who mentioned a giveaway at another fashion blog. I think I just had to retweet the blogger's info and hope that my name was the magic one chosen. I never win anything, so I put it out of my mind and headed over to the blog to see what the fuss was all about.

I had never heard of Odelma Vintage  and was happily surprised at stumbling upon it through a friend's tweet. I found the blog and then a link to an Etsy page. I immediately saw a few pieces of jewelry that I thought were just perfect and at a reasonable price. Then, checking twitter again, I saw that I had won! I won a beautiful gold and rose necklace. Mattie, writer of Odelma Vintage blog, asked for my address and promised to send the necklace my way soon.


Well, I forgot about that promise until my birthday when I received a package from an unknown return address. Inside was this. I love it. Today I wore it paired with my J.Crew elephant necklace.

So thanks, Odelma Vintage! Without your giveaway I might not have found your blog or etsy page..and i'm so glad I did.
