A Vintage Giveaway!
Let's begin this week with a giveaway of a different sort, shall we! I don't think I've given away any vintage tea-themed jewelry, and it's high time I do so. You know how I've mentioned buying some things on Etsy every now and then? Well, they recently had some teapot earrings I wanted but I had to buy a whole box of them. The price was right ($7 for all), and I remember at the time thinking I would give some of these away if they arrived in decent shape.
The earrings were listed as plastic but they aren't -- they're metal, just like the other half-dozen or so pairs I have with this same teapot design. The pearl ("pearl") embellishments are an interesting addition, and I think they're quite cute in a kitschy kind of way.
Displayed on the original "Gigi" card, these earrings have the old-fashioned screwbacks on them, and you can even see how the original tape has yellowed over the years. Even if you never plan to take them out of the package, they might be cute with a tea-themed display. Or for your daughter or granddaughter or niece or little friend next door to play dress-up in. Or for altering into a new piece of jewelry or craft. Whatever, I just know I will enjoy seeing these go to good homes where they will be appreciated in some way! I'm giving away three pairs of these, so you've got a better-than-average shot at being one of the winners if you leave a comment before 7 a.m. EST tomorrow. Happy Monday, everyone!
