OMGosh first of all these are stunning.

These would go to ME, why??

because at the moment i am: (and no fibbing here)

I left a full time job to go back to Uni to study graphic design, to get a better future and get a job i LOVE. In that time i had a beautiful baby girl, who as she gets older will inherit alot of my jewelery.

I then decided to stay on and do my BA, AND got a full time freelance design job, along with 3 folksy shops, 1 offering services for fellow folktsers to improve their shops.

in other words i am K nakcered! and would love a little something to make me feel nice :)

ok, ok, u can out the violins away now

Well I already have my Mums present, so these would go to my big sister she works really hard as a teacher, but always helps me with my website and business, she would love them!

I was thinking that as it was a Mother's Day draw that I should give them to my Mum, but they're really not her colours... so I would either have to keep them for myself, as chances are I probably won't get a present from my children unless I arrange it, even though I've helped them buy and wrap "Grandma" presents for Mother's Day!

As it's a mothering sunday draw, they will go to my mum as an extra special gift.

Ang said...

I have to say if I win them they would go to me. My Mum doesn't have her ears pierced and these are beautiful earrings.

I would give these to a lovley friend of mine who has been wonderfully supportive to me whilst I am going through this tough time! I had a hysterectomy 6 weeks ago for endometrial cancer and will be starting chemotherapy tomorrow! She has her own health problems to contend with but she's been my rock for the past few months!

averilpam said...

what gorgeous earrings!
They would be perfect for my lovely daughter.
She is the amazing mom of my 2 beautiful grandchildren and I don't get to see enough of them as I can only manage to get over to the USA once a year.
US mothers day is in May and if I won these I'd have plenty of time to post them to her in time,

I would give them to my mum as an extra special gift. She is retiring at the end of the month at the age of 67, after devoting 19 years of her life to the charity she set up to support people with hearing difficulties. She has carried on working no matter what, including when she had breast cancer and had radiotherapy and chemotherapy. She is a total trooper, and deserves extra treats.

BeadyPool said...

Wow what very deserving people..thank you all for entering x

I have to say, I would wrap them up all pretty and give them to my kids so they could give them to ME! I have such a massive extended family with grannies and great grannies that I always get forgotten about on Mothers Day! *sob* My husband always gets the kids to make gifts for his mother (on his behalf) and for his grandmother, that I always get forgotten about. This year my husband and my son will be travelling two hundred miles to Colchester to spend the day with his family while I run around like a headless chicken after my daughter who has a violin concert at University Great Hall, (and I haven't booked a ticket yet!) and then has a birthday party to go to! (Don't these people realise what day it is?)so I will be too stressed about that to relax. I have pencilled in a Mother's Day for me on the 21st, but I'm not sure it will happen! Hey Ho! You can't win them all!

jacksknits said...

They are beautiful.I'd like to give them to my mum,but she doesn't have pierced ears.lol so I'd happily keep them for myself .

BeadyPool said...

For mummies withour pierced ears I can change them to sterling screw ons if you want x

purpleclematis said...

I would give them to my friend Lynn, who is a wonderful mother to two little ones.

jolicious said...

I'd really like them for ME! I'm a busy mum to 3 young boys and I think I deserve a treat!!!!!!! xxx

Vonnie said...

These are absolutely gorgeous!

If I were to win them, I'd give them to my fabulous StepMum. She came into our lives when I was already a Mum myself at a time when my siblings & I were hurting a lot because our parents had split very acrimoniously and our Dad wasn't coping well. In the subsequent seven years she's become an integral part of our family, keeping us together and providing a motherly ear without trying to replace the Mum that we already have. She's a wonderful woman who has had to deal with the loss of both her own parents within a year and I just want to let her know how special she is to us.

nimblejacks said...

just lovely and only one easy choice my myum- for all those years when I was a grumpy teenager full of angst that put her through the mill. Thanks to ehr I came out of those teen years a normal loving human and now a mum myself to a daughter who is getting just the same as I was... Mum I now totally understand!!!! Who said we become our mums? They were right but who better to be? my mum's a star and my number one xx Claire

helenjane said...

These earrings are so pretty.

I would keep them myself but if I won them I would give them to my ickle sister. She has blonde hair and they would suit her perfectly.

It would be another extra belated engagement pressie from me

Laura G said...

Hi there!

I would hav to give them to me- because
A) they are gorgeous!
B)I'm being a good mummy looking after 2 poorly kids(one with bad cold & one with chicken pox)
C)my lovely husband would take the kids( if they were allowed out!) up to primark to get me earrings (believe me!- I have a multi pack of metallic multi coloured daisy earrings residing in a drawer!) so it would be nice to get a bit of quality for mother's day!!( sorry how ungrateful am I!!)

SimJaTa said...

They really are stunning, I just ordered Mum's pressie yesterday so my initial thought was I would give them to me, as I have had a rather tough couple of days. But then, they are Mum's favorite colour so second thoughts, no I would give them to her as an extra. Whoever gets them will be very lucky, they are stunning.

Sparrow Primitives said...

Cue violins...I'd give them to myself as I never get given anything on Mother's Day unless I buy it for myself :)

Dottie Designs said...

They are beautifuul and I would give them to my 3 children to give to me as with my husband at sea until April I will be gobsmacked if he organised something for me before he left!!

Maxine Veronica said...

Gorgeous earrings, if I won them I would give them to my friend Sheena, she's had a tough time recently and is waiting to become a granny - 4 false alarms so far and not much sleep coz her daughter's partner is working away so she's on call!

Hey stranger.... wow - wot and awesome idea and some lovely crafts and jewellery.

If I were to give these beautiful earings as a gift, they would of course go to my mum Linzee.

I'm still living overseas in South Island of NZ and as such, I'm never in touch with the UK celebrations such as Mothering Sunday, Father's Day etc...

My mum certainly deserves a special gift and shouldn't be missing out just because her son and daughter in law decided to move away to live overseas. She's already missing out on regular contact with her two grand-children, Ben (7) and Bryony (6) and although she doesn't winge about such things, I know deep down she cherishes any gifts or special thoughts that are sent by way of email, snail-mail, Skype or alike. I'm certain an exquisite gift made by an old family/school friend of her son would make her the happiest mum and grandmother this Mother's Day. I remember hunting aound for beautiful gems at Beady Pool as a 5 year old with my mum and we have some extremely fond memories of these times...

Take care 2 u and yours and the very best of luck to all my fellow entrants! Love and very best wishes to you and your family...! Yestin x ;)
