aPearantly Sew Giveaway!

 Can I just say right now, that I love the handmade community? Since I've opened my Etsy shop, I've 'met' so many amazing cyber friends. One of these amazing friends is Alison, the artist behind the blog and shop,  aPearantly Sew.

Yeah, I know, adorable name. And equally adorable stuff! Here's a glimpse at the beauties in her Big Cartel shop. I wish I had a fraction of the sewing talent that this woman possesses!

Ah, I love it all! Even though I just bought new stockings last year, I'm so tempted to snag a pair from her shop! 

Alison made something special just for my readers! One of you darling people gets to win this beautiful wristlet clutch! Don't you love the yellow and gray?? This wristlet clutch is about 9.5x7.5 and is made with lots of love. It's perfect for a date night with your man or a night on the town with girlfriends.
