My Oh My! - Birthday Bling Giveaway!

Happy Monday!  It was my birthday last week but with the events in Japan I didn't feel it was appropriate to start the week with the usual sparkle so held onto the post that I'd written until today.  Enjoy!

We begin with cake - 'Sacred Cake' to be exact. This is the name of the Etsy store where Jennifer Valentine* sells her spectacular jewellery, and it's divine!
I discovered Jennifer a couple of weeks ago as I was putting the finishing touches to a 'WOW' post and spied her glorious gems on the Etsy 'Handpicked Items' page.  What a gift of serendipity!

I spent much time savouring the many amazing jewels and was overwhelmed by the choice.
So, in the spirit of giving and receiving in this birthday 'week', pull the tie and unwrap some bling with me...

I love them all, but especially the gilded fern earrings [#1]. 
Jennifer has a wonderful blog, also titled Sacred Cake which is fabulous, as it's always wonderful for me to learn more about artisans and their lives.

Guess what dear Gifter? As a birthday surprise, Jennifer is giving you the chance to receive either a pair of the aquamarine earrings or the feather hair clips! 
I'm so thrilled to think that two of my bloggy friends might be receiving one of my favourite things aquamarines or feathers - thank you Jennifer.

I'm sure you would love to receive a little parcel in your mailbox, so to give yourself the best chance to own one of these treasures please do the following:
  • Be one of my Gifters - let me know that you follow this blog AND
  • Visit Jennifer's Store 'Sacred Cake' then come back and tell me which treasure caught your eye.
  • For a second entry, include details of this giveaway on your blog & leave a separate comment to let me know that you've done so.
  • For a third chance leave another comment letting me know what your favourite birthday cake would be.
The giveaway will stay open until Sunday April 3rd with the lucky Gifters being announced in the 'My Oh My!' segment on Monday 4th April [Australian Eastern Standard Time]. Mark your calendars & spread the word!

So with sparkle in our ears and feathers in our hair we are ready to meet the brand new week together.
Be sure to pop in tomorrow for my favourite day of the week where we play with art & words.

* If you are a regular reader, you'll know why Jennifer's surname has special significance! 


  1. happy belated birthday!!!! what a lovely post. those aquamarine earrings are stunning!

    i hope your new year brings you much happiness, health, laughter and joy :)

  2. Hi Felicity, you may have noticed I've been a bit absent of late. I've just been taking a break from blog land. I'm back though. I've missed reading your comments on my posts. They always make me smile. You're such a thoughtful person.

    Happy, happy birthday for last week. I hope it was a doozy and that you were spoiled within an inch of your life. You deserve it!

    Jennifers Etsy store is just beautiful. The aquamarine earrings are divine. I rather like the peridot ones too.

    Hope you have a lovely day. Ky xx

  3. Lovely Felicity, happy birthday! I do hope you celebrated in sparkling style, and got to unwrap something fabulous!

    Thank you for showing the way to Sacred Cake - what beautiful treasures. I just wanted to reach into my monitor and touch them.

    My great great grandfather was a jeweller and watchmaker in Melbourne during the gold rush. I would so dearly love to be able to see some of his work, but none remains in the family, and antique jewellery is notoriously difficult to trace to its maker. Whenever I see Victorian jewellery I wonder if he made similar pieces - some of Jennifer's designs remind me of those old boom-time designs.

    Well, now. My favourites would be Autumn in New York, and Moonlight Sonata.

    And I love the feather hair pins. Knowing you are a nest girl, I should have known you had a 'thing' for feathers too!

  4. A belated happy birthday, young lady. I hope you realize you're the "bling" in your life and the lives you touch.


    Explore. Dream. Discover.

  5. Happy Birthday Felicity!
    So many treasures to be found at Sacred Cake, but the Forbidden, shabby vintage assemblage earrings, which apparently are ONE of a KIND, really caught my eye!

  6. Sending you belated birthday wishes Felicity, from over here in England. That jewellery is gorgeous, and I particularly love the stunning acquamarine ear-rings.

  7. Hi Felicity, just wanted to wish you a belated Happy Birthday, I'm happy to have found you on blogland. Please don't enter me for the draw, if I'm messed up the numbering, just delete the comment after you've read it! Best wishes,

  28. Happy Birthday for last week, hope you have had some celebration. What a gorgeous giveaway! Thank you for the link, I loved it so much I just purchased the 'wedding song' cuff bracelet (last one left)I found it hard to choose just one thing though. thanks again.

  29. Sorry, but I never choose just one cake!!! Greedy I know, but I have a bit of an addiction to making/baking and eating cake...When we have guests for dinner, there are always at least two desserts, usually three. So on that note I would choose the Celebration cake (a womens weekly recipe)Orange cake and a Double Chocolate cake.
