April Giveaway with Love.

April Giveaway.

Yesterday I wrote here.  And many of you have been so sweet and kind about Evan's little incident.    It is funny what our kids can teach us,  I think it is one of my favorite moments of being a Mom.  What they teach you…. 
But I am back to here today and still basking in our visit last week down in South Carolina and Georgia.  So it is time to focus on the good stuff and oh a week in the low country can fill you up with so much goodness.   The sights the smells, the sounds, (who knew frogs can make that sound...a cross between a yappy dog and a baby cry).  But if the gentle breeze and salt water air doesn’t put you in a good place then not much can.  At least for me. 
So on my hunt for something special to offer you my readers, followers and wonderful friends I journeyed into Old Bluffton right dead smack in between Savannah, GA and Hilton Head, NC.   

First this place is a piece of heaven for a budding photographer.... 

An Old Church near downtown Bluffton

Store Front to a store called "Egg-Centric" It was one of my faves..
The buildings, the colors, the textures and the stores.  Oh the neat little "knick knacky" stores full of unique stuff art, gifts, books, items for the home,  apparel.  It was fantastic to say the least and I loved every second of my afternoon spent there.

So it was when I walked upon this sign….

I knew I liked the simple laid backness of the owner...

And then I saw this sign. 

And headed right in. 

You see I wanted to find a treasure, something different something not made in China or Indonesia.  I wanted to buy from a "local yocal".  Something with a story, a charm like no other.

So here is what I found and hope you love it as much as I do. 

The ice blue beaded rope and opal shell stone just belong together.  The piece was made in Bluffton and while I didn’t get to meet the actual artist I felt like I would like her as much as I would hope she would like me. 

Love it?  Here is how you can enter the giveaway.

1) Leave me a comment, any ole nice comment will do . 
2) Send me an e-mail to and say "Hey Chatter lady I left you a comment.  I want that necklace pretty please..."  Or something along those lines. 
3) Or simply "Like" my facebook page and message me there (make sure you send me your e-mail address, I do not share e-mail's with anyone).
