Giveaway!

About a month ago, I entered a giveaway on a blog for a bracelet. I won! A few weeks later, this was sitting in my mailbox:


According to the etsy site, the bracelet's pieces were all handmade, and the turquoise color was chosen to ward off the 'evil eye.' (And it came from Israel. Really!) I can't tell you how cool I thought that was -- and how excited I was that I had won!

I've worn this bracelet a few times now and I love it. I've gotten so many compliments on it!

Well guess what, y'all: I haz a bracelet for you too! One lucky winner will get both a $5 giftcard to the LuckXury etsy shop AND this way, way cool bracelet:



"This unique and gentle bracelet combines four turquoise amulets: Hamsa (The small hand-5 fingers), Garlic, An eye, and one turquoise bid. All amulets are symbols of good energies and luck keepers, and also evil-eye watchers."

Don't we all need some more good energy and luck? (YES)

If you want to win:
Comment on this post. Tell me anything! Tell me how your day was! Tell me how the weather is where you are! (You can comment a bit of nonsense once per day for extra entries.)

Other ways to win! Leave a comment for each thing you do:
1) Tweet about this giveaway: make sure you include @theonlinenanny in your tweet (1 comment per tweet you do, 1 tweet per day)

4) Subscribe to my blog on Bloglines or Google Reader or any other feed (if you already subscribe, leave a comment) (3 comments)

Please leave an email address in each comment you leave so I can contact you if you win! Contest ends 11/4 (ONE WEEK!!!).

Good luck!

Shiri said...

Lovely bracelet! I'd love to win it... or maybe some nanny-tips? I've had an exhausting night. My sons (16 months old and 2 1/2 years old) were up half the night, scared of the thunder and demanding I stay in their room. Found myself lying on the rug at 4am, hugging a teddy.
Good energy will be appreciated. ;)

I had a teacher who was so superstitious about the evil eye she had a tattoo to ward it off. She unfortunately (in that regard anyways) had alot of influence on me.

I need something to protect me from the evil eye. Maybe it will stop my kids from licking other people's vehicles.

Great bracelet!

Hi there!
My day was terribly inefficient: I spent nearly 8 hours doing "bits & pieces" in the house (it kept pouring rain most of the day here)while... surfing craft blogs!
So back to work now, while dreaming I can win this lovely bracelet (do you think I can use the giftcard to buy some stone/gem that gives me energy for homework...?)
Have a lovely day
