Halloween & Fall Giveaway!

Halloween is here...We were invited to a halloween costume party and well, it just gets harder and harder to be creative with a costume idea. Being that I am in the last year of my 40's I decided that it would be fun to go as a Cougar. I tried to capture the essence of the animal along with the oh so sophisticated, sexy, on the prowl for the young men qualities of the female human cougar. I think in the end I just ended up looking like me dressed in an animal print dress with cat ears on my head and a tail. Oh well, I felt like I stepped outside of the usual jeans & tee so un-cougar like me. McDreamy went as a punk rocker from the 80's. We ran out and got him a Punk band Tee and had a good time trying to spike up his hair in a Fohawk! We did have a mighty good time!

Now that October has come to an end and most of the leaves have blown off the trees with the strong midwestern winds... I think it is the perfect time to do a giveaway.

I would love to send my favorite new earrings with warm autumn colors to someone for a Thanksgiving Gift.

The winter months are coming and I know I would love some new inspiration in my studio, please leave a comment with the name of your favorite album or song so that we can all find some new music to listen too during the cold winter months. In exchange consider yourself entered in the drawing for the earrings. I will draw a random winner on November 15th and post that person on my blog that week.

This is a song that I have been listening to lately, Baby Girl has been learning it on her guitar, we love it {pause music on the sidebar and have a listen}...

"A few days ago I walked along the edge of the lake and was treated to the crunch and rustle of leaves
with each step I made. The acoustics of this season are different and all sounds, no matter how hushed,
are as crisp as autumn air."
- Eric Sloane

Welcome November

ok enticed me to comment--you know how i don't really like to do this...comment! But i would LOVE those earrings (actually i would love anything you've made) Did you get my text pic the other nite of your fab necklace i was wearing? It looked so cool paired w/that vintage rhinestone and pearl choker.
Oh, hmmmmm...that's right, the song. Well, since my son controls the radio most of the time, it's got to come from the top 40 (do they even say that anymore?) Lately i'm in love w/the song that Drama Darling sung at Stage Left: "I Run to You"....Really...I'm not trying to brown nose the give away! haha

What a cool song to learn while practicing guitar. It has nice key changes. Oh boy, now I'm going to hum it all day; that isn't a bad thing...And, by the way, I would love to enter your giveaway! What a beautiful set of earrings for Thanksgiving or anytime. Have a wonderful week.

I think you looked fabulous! And the idea was really original. :D

I'm listening to Everlife. Yes, it's teenage pop, but it's so bloody upbeat that I can't help but bounce a little when I listen.

I like the song, it would be great to play while in the studio creating! I like Coldplay (I like everything by them), The Fray (Never Say Never) and The Script (Breakeven is good). The earrings are perfect for Autumn! Thanks for the giveaway!!

Hi Cindy,
I have followed your blog for quite some time and LOVE your jewelry also. As of yet I haven't taken the time to start a blog(am I really behind or what???) but I love following and the inspiration that comes from so many of them.
A song that keeps coming to my mind and I find myself humming it often (I heard it on the radio a while back and it has been sticking in my mind) is the long ago song from Louis Armstrong titled "What a Wonderful World". With Thanksgiving coming soon, it is just good to sit back and just quietly think about all the little things around us that make this world a wonderful place that we can be grateful for. There is so much awful and scarey stuff going on in this world that it is easy to forget about all the little things and wonderful things to be thankful for that happen every day. Hope this doesn't sound corny, but it is a great little song to bring us back to what is really wonderful.
Have a great day.
