One World One Heart giveaway


how would you like to fly away,
fly away on a magic carpet!
to a land where your most favored dreams become reality!



One World One Heart was created by Lisa in 2007 to bring bloggers together from around the world who may never ordinarily meet.  The object is to discover new and wonderful people along the way, and in the process possibly win one or many prizes.  It's all about sharing and finding kindred spirits.

So come on in!  Let's get started!    Please stay awhile,  Make yourself comfortable and look around.  After your visit here, grab your magic carpet and fly on over to the next home.  As Lisa says, "Think of this as taking a giant tour of homes; you get to stop in, look around, meet the people who live there, admire and be inspired and before you go on to the next one you leave your name in hopes to win a door prize at each home."
And now for my giveaway!

"Oh, what is it?" you say.  "It's earrings, " I say.   "I can SEE that!"  you say.
These are beautiful earrings made from Grade A freshwater rice pearls, Grade A freshwater potato pearls, and sterling silver.  The lovely pearls are so lustrous!  They will come in a silk bag that I hand dyed with the happy colors of Spring.  Read on to see how I dyed it.

After the silk is washed and dried, I tied it up.  In this case, I used orthodontic rubber bands.


 


 Now the tied silk is soaked in white vinegar for 30 minutes.








ready to dye!




Place in closeable baggie and microwave on high for two minutes.  You can pause the microwave every 45 seconds or so to keep the bag from bursting.  Now open up (VERY carefully) and wash  with a dab of mild soap.  Soak in a solution of water and a little fabric softener if you like.  Iron on low heat.




Now it's ironed and ready for you to win!






And now for the skinny on how to win!
FIRST, this giveaway is open to those with blogs only.  
SECOND,  leave a comment on THIS post and do tell me a dream you have--it can be tiny or very big.  You may leave as many as 5 comments, but they must be made on DIFFERENT days.
THIRD, in your comment, please leave a way for me to reach you should you win.
You have till 11:59 PM on February 14th to enter.  I will choose a winner on February 15 using a random number generator.


Go visit One World One Heart on Lisa's blog, A Whimsical Bohemian to see how to play along and for a list of all participants.
Have fun!
♥ Margaret

  1. Beautiful! Great giveaway! Thanks so much for having this. Thanks for entering at my blog, too. :)

    A dream of mine? A small one... to work the earth enough around my house to have beautiful flowers and tasty veggies.

  2. I was going to comment first with a dream, but Athena beat me to it. That's a wonderful dream!

    I have a dream to hike the Grand Canyon--all the way down, all the way up. I have gone only partially down so far, on several occasions.

    (Don't worry, I can't win my own prize!)

  3. Wow, it's lovely! The way the colors blend is so enthralling. Thanks for sharing the process, too-- I love seeing how other people make their lovelies!

    A dream of mine...I want a house of my own, with a big porch! One that faces not sunup or sundown, but lets me watch all the changing light. And I'll lay out large sheets of flat paper, and paint the shadows of the branches as they change....

    Happy OWOH!

  18. Let's try this again: Your jewelry is wonderful. The fact that you used pearls reminds me of a dream I had as a youngster after I watched a documentary on pearl divers in Japan. I dreamed that I could hold my breath as long as they could. Funny how that came back to me at this time of my life. Thank you for your generosity. Tina

  19. Lovely earrings and the bag is fabulous. I really enjoyed watching the process you used to dye it. My dream would be a summer house with an ocean view and a trail to the beach.

  20. Hi Margaret! I love that you shared the process for dying the silk bag. My dream - other than winning the earrings - is to curate an exhibit of the 20th century as seen through my more than 3,500 ashtrays that I have collected over the past 15 years.

  127. One of my dreams is to buy the house next door so we can expand our veg & fruit garden as well as the chicken run. Maybe enough room for a pair of dairy goats. And be able to grow, make & preserve more of our food. The next-door yard would be just enough extra room to add some fruit trees. *sigh*
