Giveaway: Gugaw

Dearest peeps,
What are you doing this weekend? B's birthday is on Saturday and I'm hoping to take him to the shooting range. Before you get all judgmental and think "there those Southern rednecks go again...", I'd like to say that neither B nor I have ever held a gun, and for the record, I was born in New Jersey- so if there's any redneck in me, I can't blame my family. Ha! On a side note- Have you entered the giveaway I'm offering at the Cottage Cheese? Because you should.
I hope you enjoy this weekends lovely giveaway...
xo,
Christina

I'm stoked to announce that this weekend's giveaway comes a U.K. based boutique.
Meet Claire from Gugaw. I'm a huge fan of her charming jewelry designs and I'm a regular reader of her blog. She's offering, to one lucky Down and Out Chic reader a choice from the following charm necklaces (how to choose???)



1. snow white $25
2. granny smith $25



3. polaris $30
4. sweet rose $16.50



5. love $25
6. pale leaf $16.50



7. fraise

I'm also smitten over some of these pieces in her shop: saffron, boheme in brass, and dusky purple and silver. What's your favorite?
Here's how to enter... (3 entries)
1) Check out the shop and let me know what you think. What necklace would you choose if you won?
2) If your a follower/member/reader of Down and Out Chic, you get a second entry. Just say "I'm a follower!" Make sure to leave a SEPARATE comment or it won't count!
3) Blog, Tweet, or Facebook about this giveaway and leave me a comment w/the link!

Really want a necklace, but afraid you won't win? Have no fear, the generous Claire is offering 25% off any of the above necklace if you simply mention 'downandoutchic' on the notes to seller.

Good luck! Winner will be chosen next Tuesday, October 6th in the p.m.

My mother in law has completely lucked out. I bought a bracelet from Claire with every intention to be efficient pre-MiL birthday, but forget it. It's staying with me, I'm afraid. Think that makes me a witch of a daughter-in-law (yikes!)

PS. I'm voting Polaris.
PPS. Thanks for the chance!
