Now, I haven't ever agreed to a giveaway that isn't in the "spirit" of this blog... that is, I keep things focused on what this blog is about. However, this time the giveaway has nothing to do with bento, lunch, or food.
But I am a woman, a mother, and I like pretty things. I'm (not really) going out on a limb to assume that 99.9% of Another Lunch readers are also women, family oriented, and enjoy pretty things. :) Therefore, ergo, alakazam, spiffywiffy, I think you will also like The Rusted Chain.
The Rusted Chain is a mom-made jewelry company. Very etsy-esque, without the actual etsy. In fact, each piece is hand made by stay-at-home mom Becki and shipped from her Kansas farmhouse!
The Rusted Chain is offering TWO gift certificates for $25 for their online shop to Another Lunch readers! That means two winners! Yay us! :)
Take a gander at some of this adorable hand-stamped jewelry...
There are personalized options, like this lovely sterling silver circle piece that jumped out at me (Evelyn is (one of) my Paige's middle names), sigh. :)
These personalized "two tabs" necklaces are pretty and nifty too...
Oh, did I say The Rusted Chain wasn't at all food related? I lied. A little. Look at this darling "life is sweet" cupcake necklace.
Maybe you aren't interested in hand-stamped or mom-crafted jewelry? Well, no bother. The gift-giving season is fast approaching! Perhaps The Rusted Chain could put a smile on the face of a special friend or family member! Or for the terrific teacher your tot is taught by...
The Rusted Chain not only carries a wide variety of necklaces, but also earrings, bracelets and even some items for men. I don't actually have pierced ears any more, but if I did I'd be happy to have these gems dangling from my lobes...
I'm also really fond of the Honeysuckle earrings. Even the name is scrumptious!
Now to the nitty gritty: HOW TO ENTER this rad giveaway.
