hey, hey it's GIVEAWAY day! [closed]

 Yes friends, I've finally gotten around to hosting another giveaway from the nest here!
I'm excited to share the following handmade treasures with one lucky reader (though I wish I could send a 'love-gift' to each and every one of you!). 

The fact that you - yes you - are reading this blog for the first time, or the hundredth time, is a delight for me.
So, I want to share this giveaway as a thank-you for being here.
Thanks for reading.
For your comments.
Your warmth.
Your support.

I know this blog is a real random 'surprise pack' of all the pondering and projects bouncing around my brain.
So, maybe you come here for d.i.y inspirations, or to see what I've been creating, upcycling, and sewing... or maybe you visit just to marvel at the utter adorableness of these kids (I know that's what keeps me coming back!).
For whatever reason, I'm glad you're here.
Thank you.

On with the giveaway!

 One-of-a-kind, doily.pressed, honey.glazed pottered neck.clay with an antique bronze chain.
 One antique lace&leather neck.lace.... and a felted embroidered brooch.
Plus, a $20.00 gift card to use in the Needle and Nest online SHOP here.

If that tickles your fancy, enter this giveaway!

How to enter:
Since this is a 'thank you' I'm not about to bribe you to follow.link.like.tweet me... 
I just want to hear from you!

It's that simple, leave a comment below saying 'hello' (or any other sweet words to share).
Even if this is the first and only time you comment, I'd just love to know you're here.
*WINNER will be drawn a week from today.... next Friday 22nd!*

Good luck all you lovelies,

Creatively yours,
Mel ;o)
