Without further ado, let me hasten to announce the final and fabulous conclusion to my Giveaway Week.
I know I have mentioned my dear little Sister-In-Law, Becca, a time or two in the past. She is one of those irritating enviable people who seem to be able to do just about anything crafty.
She sewed Rose’s wedding dress.
(I cannot believe I don’t have a picture on-hand of the BACK of said dress…it is a beautiful, lace-up job)
She baked Rose’s wedding cake.
And then, ten months later, she made Rose’s adorable baby shower invitations.

As you might have guessed, if you happen to have the phenomenal good fortune to be related to Becca, you would find there is very little she can’t and won’t do for you, many times going above and beyond all reasonable expectation.
For years we have exclaimed over Becca’s prodigious talent and pondered the ramifications of her sharing it with the world. Although we’d like to be selfish and keep all she has to offer for our ownty-own, she went and spoiled all that.
She started a business. Complete with website.
So now you, too, can enjoy all the wealth of talent that is Becca! Do you need something sewn or knitted or fabricated or imagined or baked or stamped or crafted for you?
She’s your gal.
IF you have the staggering good fortune to live in her area (Dallas/Ft. Worth), then you could ask her to bake you a cake for a special occasion. Her cakes–take it from me–not only look absolutely lovely, but taste divine as well.
If you do not live in the DFW area, despair not! She has much more to offer than just cakes. Check out her website, Pish Posh, and see for yourself. Perhaps you would like some unique Christmas stockings for the family? Or a darling little dolly bed set?
One of my absolute favorite items that Becca can craft is the soldered glass charm. She made this one just for me a while back, and I love it beyond all reason.
Right now, due to an unfortunate happenstance with her harddrive, her inventory of pre-made designs has been lost. However, if you have an idea for something you would like, shoot her an email and I KNOW she can accomodate. If you have a favorite photo to incorporate, or a scripture or saying, let her take it and run with it.
And that brings us to this giveaway. Becca has agreed to create a lovely beachy charm necklace for the winner! I requested something involving shells, and she has an incredible product that I can’t wait to see.
And why am I waiting (and waiting…and waiting…waiting with anxious, bated breath) to see it?
Becca happens to live in the very area in DFW that has been experiencing a power-outage since last night. Which means she cannot log on. Which means she cannot email me a picture of the charm.
Although this is unorthodox, I’m going to go ahead and start the bidding festivities because I KNOW YOU TRUST ME when I tell you the charm necklace is going to be the bomb. And I promise to post a picture of it just as SOON as I have it in my grubby little computery hands.
SO. Head on over to Pish-Posh, come back and tell me one thing that you’d like to clutch to your bosom and cover with kisses, and you’ll be entered to win. AND just for enduring the cloak and dagger routine, we’re going to let the winner have a set of beautiful beachy cards to boot.
UPDATED TO ADD LONG-AWAITED PICTURES!
Did I tell you it would be worth the wait, friends?
Did I PROMISE GREATNESS???
Yes. Yes, I did.
And can I just say that even though I KNEW it would be great; even though I am ACCUSTOMED to Becca blowing my socks off; even though I was ANTICIPATING nothing less than perfection, I WAS STILL MAD WITH DELIGHT WHEN I SAW WHAT SHE HAD WROUGHT?
I shrieked, my friends. I shrieked. And then I hugged myself with pleasure and ran around in tight circles, cackling with glee. Are they not sublime? Heavenly? Yes, that is indeed a pinch of actual beach sand contained within the tiny square, by the way. Sand from Gulf Shores, Alabama, I believe.
I hope you love them as much as I do. If you don’t I’ll just keep them, yessiree. No problemo what.so.ever.
But if you have not yet left a comment after visiting Becca’s site, I would advise you to do so right this minute. This contest will close at midnight tonight, along with the previous three!
Winners for ALL the giveaways will be selected Saturday morning via Random.org, and posted without further histrionics!
