Pink Pink Pink - Giveaway

I had a little scare-I was having some pain and the Dr. found a lump. After waiting a month for the x-ray/squeeze I found out it was just a wardrobe malfunction -- that's what Matt's calling it. 
The lesson learned was that underwires are not good for the girls. 
Needless to say, we've been a little stressed. Heavy sigh of relief



In other news, Monkey Grass Hill is two years old. 
Valentines day is just days away and I feel like doing a giveaway. 

It seems only appropriate that I go with something pink 


So this pink cultured pearl necklace (or same style your choice in alternate color) 
will go to one lucky winner chosen randomly Friday. 


 This is a piece that has so many different looks - 
 Wear it long
or short

 Show a little sparkle with the rhinestone clasp 

Add a pin


And the beautiful clasp is magnetic!
This is one versatile necklace!

Enter up to three times by doing the following:
  1. Leave a comment on this post
  2. Become a follower and leave a comment letting me know. (If you're already a follower, just leave a comment saying so and you'll be entered again too)
  3. Tweet about the giveaway or mention it on your blog - then leave me a comment.

Carrie H said...

wow, such beautiful jewelry! Congratulations on the wonderful health news - I swear, if men had to wear an underwire around "the boys" they'd be a lot more sympathetic, and that evil underwire would be banished from the planet!

Oh, don't you hate those wardrobe malfunctions? Did that 2 years ago...no fun! At least the end result is good news!

Betsy said...

Yes, I'm following! :)

Tabitha said...

Oh that's beautiful, janet sent me here and I do whatever she tells me.
An underwire, wow, I didn't know they could be so detrimental to breasts, what a relief for you.

So happy your lump was not serious ...I had a scare back in 1998 so I can appreciate all the emotions that come with the "scare".

The necklace is gorgeous! Love that shade of pink.

I have come from the gardener's cottage too. am now a follower and have tweeted. I did know that about underwires, I haven't worn them for more than 10 years. I love the Berlei soft touch bras, they are so comfortable and feel fab. Investigated all this when my mother passed away from Metastatic breast cancer.

All the best,

This is a gorgeous necklace!!! I am so very glad that your health situation turned out well. I have steered clear of underwires for a few years now. There are some very supportive bras out there now without them. Bra Smyth has many.
