The Blue Balloon Necklace Giveaway

Today we have a wonderful giveaway from Marie of the The Blue Balloon. Marie has a gorgeous Etsy shop full of pretty necklaces and rings.

I recently asked Marie about herself and this is what she said:

"My name is Marie. I am the mama of the most curious baby boy, Ephraim. He was due on Christmas Eve, and was born on New Year's Day, so the holidays last year were interesting. I am a full time mama, and also wife to a busy, often touring drummer boy. We live in our cozy home in Milwaukee, a few blocks from Lake Michigan. I'm still adapting to the stay at home life, but am enjoying being fortunate enough to spend so much time with my baby, and in between, time to work on my shop. Besides crafting, I also play the violin, get excited about coffee and love books."

I also spotted this on her Etsy profile and just had to included it:

"...A common recurring adjective I hear regarding my pieces and my shop is nostalgic; I love that, and take it as a compliment."

Marie was kind enough to offer the "Whisky and Brass" necklace from her shop to one lucky Tea Talk reader. This necklace is seriously gorgeous, and would be a great accessory to any fall or winter outfit.





All you have to do to enter is visit The Blue Balloon Etsy shop, and leave a comment telling me which is your piece (leaving your email address would be great too). If you would like to earn an extra entry you can tweet or blog about this giveaway, but be sure to leave another comment with the link to so show me that you did so.

The giveaway will run from today, until Thursday November, 11th.

Good luck to everyone!
-Chelsea

  35. It is so impossible to pick a favorite, haha! I love all of her stuff. I really love the smoky quartz and brass necklace and the sailing my ship necklace, but the one offered on the giveaway is absolutely divine too! ee! so many pretty things! It also makes me smile that she's with a touring drummer. Her and I have that in common :)
