Etsy love and a give-away...

*first off I want to say that I think I have fixed the wonky font, although I have no idea where it came from I hope it is g.o.n.e.  if you are still having trouble viewing please let me know!  *

...Yay!  I'm having a Spring-Fling give-away.  This will be the first in a series of give-aways so be sure to check back often.  It is my way of thanking your for your concern and support during my recent cancer treatment and my effort to court Spring...my favorite season, o.k., not really but let's not tell Spring that!

Do you know Etsy?  Before I started blogging I had never heard of Etsy, now it is my 'go-to' place for everything handmade and unique.  At any given time I have at least six things in my cart waiting for my final decision...I hope you will check them out, I especially love their vintage and collectible section...sigh.  

Today I am featuring Lea and her shop Adornment Assortment.  I found Lea when I was looking for scarves and such to cover the scar I have on my neck from my recent Thyroid surgery.  I found her handmade infinity t-shirt scarves. These little darlings are lightweight and extremely comfortable.  They are not bulky but can be worn many different ways and can be casual or dressed up with a brooch, flower or pretty big button.   She also has many other handmade items in her shop so go check it out;  Adornment Assortment.

I asked Lea if she would like to be part of my Spring Fling and she jumped right on board and offered three, yep 3, of her beautiful scarves to be given away.  How sweet is that?  So here they are...

 first up: purple infinity t-shirt scarf...

 next: a vibrant green infinity t-shirt scarf...

and finally: Hello Kitty infinity t-shirt scarf.

Now I know you are all wondering how you can win one of these and what set of complicated rules must you follow to even qualify, am I right???   Well, here we go...none.  No rules, ok, not true...just a couple.    Ready...

1. you may enter as many times as you want, as many times a day, everyday, whatever you'd like.  Enter often, BUT, all entries must be on this post and only this post.
2.  IF you would like to spread the word, you know, via your blog, twitter or FB, then you will get an extra entry AND a special prize from me!  Be sure to let me know in the comments.
3.  contest is open until the official start of Spring which is Sunday March 20 at midnight PDT. winners will be chosen by random number generator  and finally:

answer the following question....
  What is your favorite Spring accessory?

there you go, good luck!


  1. My favorite spring accessory? Open toed sandals, and painted toenails. :-)

    How are you, JoJo? I haven't had a chance to visit many blogs lately. How ya doin'? Well, I hope...!



  2. Wonderful blog! Thank you so much for asking me to sponsor a giveaway for you! Good luck to all!

    Lea :)

  3. Favorite spring accessory huh? As I think of it, I don't accessorize too much in spring; but I do have a wonderful bright yellow jacket that makes me feel like a jaunty daffodil. Does that count?

  4. Sorry I am not an accessory person either. But I love spring. It is truly a time of renewal. In life and nature. Every thing come back to life. And it make me smile. Thank you for all of your wonderful comments. And I send blessings and healing thoughts back to you now. Big hug and lots of love. E

  5. i am a home body i dont get out and i rarely match when i do... But, am always hopping around bloggy land saying hi to people and the green scarf is pretty...i like all things green :)

  6. Gosh, darn, I dont' "accessorize" much, but, of course, have many spring purses! Gotta have one for every new season!

  7. I would have to say my favorite (if by favorite you mean most often worn ....) would dirt under my nails!!

  8. My favorite spring accessory would have to be a thick headband to wear in my hair with a pony-tail. I like the versatility of being able to wear different colors and they are very comfortable when the weather gets warmer.

    I hope that you are healing and feeling stronger everyday, dear one.

    Hugs and love,

  9. Hi JoJo,
    You sound like you are feeling so much better and that makes me happy. I am not an accessory person, my work past and present doesn't allow for anything but uniforms but if I have to choose I guess my gold toned butterfly earrings! I love the scarves though and am thinking they would cover my front if I want to wear something low-cut and not show off my breast prosthesis. Most mastectomy bras are cut high, so its hard to find something suitable for tops where the bra isn't showing. I like the green and blue very much!!! So happy you got yours when you needed it! I will check out this Etsy shop too. Thanks for the giveaway and good luck to all!

  10. Have missed you, Jojo. What a lovely spring fling giveaway.

    Not a big spring accessorizer either.

    Happy St. Paddy's Day ~
    TTFN ~


  11. Honey such a generous wonderful giveaway.
    I would have to say my silly hats that put on in the spring time espcially to wear to the different antique fairs.
    Thanks for giving me a chance to win

  12. Hi JoJo Sweetie...
    Oh my gosh, my favorite Spring accessory, well necklaces and scarves ofcourse. I so enjoy wearing them. It just tickles me pink.

    I love, Love, LOVE this giveaway. The Hello Kitty just stole my heart. I have a scar on my neck that I had as well from my neck surgery. I had to have a plate and 4 screws put in mine to fix me good as new again. I hate that scar and the more weight I lose, the more noticeable it is.

    JoJo I am so tickled to see you out and about again. I am also tickled about this Spring Fling giveaway. I will be back often. I have also posted your giveaway proudly on my scrollbar. I love sharing with my friends. These are just the cutest darn scarves I ever seen and yes they do look soft too. I love the red/pink one with Hello Kitty. She is my favorite.

    I will continue to keep you in my prayers sweet friend. So happy to see you today. Many, many hugs and much love, Sherry

  13. My favorite spring accessory is sunshine! I adore scarves, wear them all the time, all year 'round.

  14. What a great idea Jojo! Celebrating life and recovery is the best medicine for whatever ails us, right? OF course I'd like to enter and I'll post you on FB too. I hope you get a great response and yep I stay away from Etsy.
    I have enough trouble with books!

  15. Whoops my favorite accessory is ***are you waiting with baited breath?****can you guess? **** are u sure?****it's something so special****so me***so ORDINARY***yep***that's right***you got it***

    FLIP FLOPS. no shoes until winter next year.

  16. Hi JoJo,

    Debbie Jean

  21. Sorry Jo Jo I just now got back home and put your giveaway on my sidebar and I mentioned it to in my post

  22. Hi JoJo! Glad to see you stopped by and here you are feeling good enough to have a spring fling... Praise the Lord. I am so glad you are having fun shopping Etsy and finding fun stuff to debate whether to keep it in your basket or not... and now you are going to share with all of us. Even if we are not a winner by you posting the Etsy store you awaken us to the wonderful little e-stores.

    Love you, lady, and so glad you are feeling, well, springy!


  23. JoJo I don't know if you saw on FB this evening that Laura's grandson Bradley pulled a pot of boiling water off the stove and had 2nd degree (possibly some 3rd degree)burns from the crown of his head to his eyebrows. Debbie Angel, Paxie Panicer, posted the note for Laura. He will be having some surgery in the morning. Please keep the baby boy in your prayers.

  24. Hi Jojo,
    Hmmm, if I'm honest, my favorite Spring thing (not really an accessory), but I looove sitting in a sun beam, like a cat and feeling it's warmth! (But you'd never find me bathing in the sun)!
    I'm wearing my sun glasses a little more now that we've had 'a' day of sun, maybe that would be my true Spring accessory! :)

    If I was lucky enough to win one of the infinity scarves, I would be happy with any one of them!

    I thought of you the day you were watching Maude, I new you were having a blissful day! Hugs, Debbie @ Cottage Hann~Me~Downs

  25. Can actually HEAR the smile on your face and that's worth more than anything :)

    Spring. Probably just changing out of socks and putting on flip flops, hair up and a t-shirt. I'm not a dress up person, but these are beautiful and would make a lovely gift.

    So happy you are smiling :)

  26. Oh how beautiful!! My fave spring accessory is a silk or cotton scarf. It adds a little warmth to any outfit, but is also cool enough for warmer days.

  27. My favorite accessory in the spring is really not an accessory at all because it means I don't have to wear socks anymore. My feet won't be freezing cold any more.

  28. Hi JoJo Sweetie...
    Had to get in my daily ticket to luck on this wonderful SPRING giveaway. I love accessories and these are so stinkin cute.

    Thank you for the wonderful opportunity sweet friend.

    Hope you had a beautiful day today. I was out in the garden, cleaning up for the Spring season.

    Many hugs and much love, Sherry

  29. Hi Jo Jo Sweetie...
    Well it is our last night for chances, so I wanted to pop over and say HI, and ask you to add my name one more time for Sweet Country Wings in Phoenix. How sweet of you to have this wonderful Spring giveaway and how wonderful of Lea to sponsor it. She is a jewel.

    Hope you are having a wonderful weekend sweet friend. Many hugs and much love, Sherry

  30. I have to say that cute sandals are my favorite spring accessory. I have been pushing spring a little this last week by even wearing some...come on spring, you can make it! I know it!

    I also have a neck scar, and have 4 screws and a plate like "Country Wings". I even had the surgery REDONE, as it wasn't done correctly the first time! UGH! Love your give away idea! I haven't gotten into scarves much, but your scarf idea game me some idea of "hiding" mine, too! Love the pink. My neck is pretty "short" and it looks like it might work the best for my needs!

    I am glad that you are feeling better. doesn't spring do that to us? Happy First Day of Spring!

  31. Here goes Jojo! My fav spring accessory are my Keen sandals. As soon as I put them on, they TELL me it's SPRING!!! I'm pretty sure sandals are accessories? Aren't they? I had a feeling I may be 'over my head' commenting on this!!!


comments, comments, comments! If you've got 'em share 'em. If you are a no comment blogger I will try to answer back on this post. If you are...expect a personal reply from me! Cheers, and please mind those manners.
