#birthdayfest2014: tuesday is for trinkets

I was wandering through Amsterdam on a Sunday in the summer of 2001 when I walked past a jewelry store that was closed, but in the window were the most beautiful and colorful necklaces I’d ever seen. They were costume-style pieces, but extravagant and bold and just the most gorgeous shades of the rainbow. As these things happen when you’re wandering through a foreign country, we never ended up walking by that store on a day it was open during the next week of our stay, and I never got to purchase any of those wares. But deep in my heart I still yearn for what I saw in that window that day…

When I happened upon some ridiculously bright baubles earlier this Spring with the same allure, I swiped them up without even hesitating. And then I went and bought a second set with April in mind.

And today, you can win both sets of these ridiculously bright and awesome earrings to dazzle and shine on your own!


So, dear friends, here’s how you can win these earrings…
