giving back giveaway...

I've been having a great month.  Well, I've actually been having a great life - bumps and bruises along the way of course, but a fantastical journey for sure.

I experience joy and feel appreciation every single day.  I know how lucky I am, I really do.  I wish everyone could have my life - even the person who stole my Ipad last month.  Yes, I wish it for that person too, but only after they give my Ipad back - KIND of joking.

What can I do with all this joy?  I can give 2 of my blog readers a necklace, that's what I can do!  I will stamp whatever initial you like in this sterling silver disc and hang it on a sterling silver chain.  My shops are doing great, my birthday is coming up, I'm going to see the beach this weekend and don't even get me started on where I'm going next month!!  You see why I'm bursting with joy?

Just leave me a comment telling me what brings you joy and you're in.  No following or other promotional attachments - just spreadin' some love.  Tell your friends! 

I'll be back next week to announce the winners.

I already won one of these, so I think that excludes me. It is absolutely adorable and even cuter in person.

Such a nice gift! My pets and husband bring me joy. They are my reason for everything and always make me smile.

My children being content and my grandchildren happy gives me great joy!

What brings me joy is seeing my wife and family happy and well.

How interesting that I was just thinking this myself....
Daughter came over on Sunday with new adopted older dog, so sweet and helped me make pickled vegetables.
Nothing earth shattering but just a great afternoon.
After she left I was thinking how happy I was, I am not in great health with mobility issues but the fact my life is so much better now that my x is no long in my and our children life anymore... hardship or not life is so good and I am so happy.

cheers, parsnip
I was a recipient of a gift from your etsy shop.

At this very second, what's bringing me joy is a giant hotel room all to myself! I'm on a business trip, so my days are full of work, but this part is like vacation!

Silver Strands said...

You are an ANGEL Jeanette! Really. I feel like you - I would wish my life for others - I have a good one. A blessed one. For me, joy is in the little things - fresh air; a hug; the feeling of muscles relaxing the second my body hits the bed ... there's joy everywhere and I'm blessed to have so much of it. Oh yeah - actually, great joy in reading your blog too!!!
Love to you Jeanette.

Maria said...

My family (including my cousin). Teaching my children. My faith. Each new day.

Felicity said...

Your strong and warm heart shine through in this post Jeanette.

Joy for me is all about deep connection whether it be alone in nature, the discovery of a new friend who genuinely shares your enthusiasms, the long embrace of someone you love.

Sending you much joy and hopes for a happy day ahead.

My son, my garden, and making things brings me joy. How nice to hear someone say they love living--we usually just hear complaints.

Privet and Holly said...

This is almost as beautiful
as the sentiment behind it:
gratitude. Laughing brings
me great joy and I need to
do it a lot more than I do!
Which your curtain post just
provided, so I'm a winner,
already : ). Thanks for the
chance, Jeanette!

Hello Jeanette, I found your blog at last!
Today, making the first onion soup of the year using our homegrown onions and garlic, and then picking up walnuts from the tree brought me joy - I love using our produce. Also, watching our 4 goats charging around their pen brought a smile to my face!

cheers, parsnip

A beautiful necklace!

Watching my kids play and laugh, especially my son, now a days as he figures out the good & challenges of having a toddler sister. Walking down the street on a perfect fall day also brings joy to me.

HAMPTON HOSTESS said...
