Giveaway: Rustic Roses

This weekend, we have a local (to me) artist offering up a pretty SWEET giveaway. Allow me to introduce you to Rustic Roses, a jewlery shop that has "weathered, beautiful, and sturdy" pieces.
I first met Rose at the Athens Farmer's Market the day of my birthday and wrote about the experience here.
Here's a shot of me wearing my new key necklace, in case you missed it the first time:

Rose's jewelry has a worn, timeless feel that I find so charming. She has a variety of gorgeous pieces including a mustard yellow crocheted necklace, adorable fabric flower pins, and a fantastic Mad Hatter necklace.
One lucky Down and Out Chic reader will win not one, but TWO items from Rose's shop.
A necklace, just like the one I have (we can be necklace twins!)...
Antique Skeleton Key Necklace $26



...and these beautiful keyhole earrings.
Juniper Antique Keyhole Earrings $26



{top photo via me, bottom photos via Rustic Rose}
In case you're a local Athenian or are in Atlanta, you can also find Rose's work at Mitzi and Romano in VA Highlands and of course at the Athens Farmers Market at Bishop Park.

Here's the scoop on how to enter. (Up to 3 entries!!!)
1. Visit the shop and tell me what you think! (1 entry)
2. If you're a follower/reader/member of Down and Out Chic you can enter a second comment simply saying, "I'm a reader!" Be sure to enter a SEPARATE comment, or it won't count. (2 entries)
3. Blog, Tweet, or Facebook about this giveaway and let me know you did. (3 entries)

In case you're curious, I wear my antique skeleton key necklace ALL the time and I love it. You will too! Good luck, winner will be picked next Tuesday night.

I hope you have a fantastic weekend. B and I are headed out of town on Saturday for a wedding. Things have been CRAZY busy but I hope to catch up with each and every one of you soon! Thanks for being the loveliest readers around.

What a cool shop! Rose's "measure twice cut once" necklace is so fun. (And sometimes when I measure twice, I still cut it wrong. My husband does most of the carpentry in our business). Love that purple top or dress you are wearing in the pic with your key necklace!

P.S. I want to be necklace twins!
