Novica's Awesome Giveaway!


You will be glad to know I have fallen in love again. It was easy to fall for him. Why because he is gifting one of you a $50.00 Gift Certificate to  NOVICA . His name is Rick and he is awesome.

Rick works for Novica  and if your not familiar with this site then you are in for an amazing surprise. They have everything I mean everything you could possibly want but the best thing is their products are made by artisans all over the world.

I have been browsing the site nightly since Rick emailed me and I am overwhelmed with all the unique  gorgeous items you can buy with this $50.00 gift. On their site you will find Jewelry, clothing, home decor,  area rugs, paintings and much much more.

Look at just a few of the items I found on their huge wonderful site. Keep in mind these are only a handful of items that this great company has to offer.
Don't you love this blue Hammock?  Great Father's Day Gift! 

I especially heart this Swing Hammock. Since seeing this I keep trying to figure out where I could hang this baby. lol
                                                         Look at the details of this cross.


                                             Don't you love the sculpture of Mary and Jesus?

This is the second giveaway that Novica has been so kind to let me have for them. I owe Rick a lot for keeping my friends Happy.

To enter this delightful giveaway just click on some of the specials they have going right now that I have listed under the next three pictures. Just come back and tell me what you thought of their site and what you might use your gift certificate for if your the lucky winner. You have until midnight June 7th central standard time to enter. I use the Random Generator to choose my winner.

How easy is that to have the chance to win a $50.00 Gift Certificate?

                                                                     Batik clothing

                                                                  Silver Link Bracelets


I chose to start this giveaway today because June 1st was my Daddy's Birthday. He was the best Dad in the world.
In the previous post I meant to tell you a short story about the day I met Ronnie. My family and I were camping at Garner State Park here in Texas. One morning while  I was swimming in the river this cute guy swims over to me and introduces himself. Turns out we both lived in the Houston area. 
Anyway after the day of swimming I took Ronnie to meet my parents at the camp site. I will never forget the look on my dad's face when we walked up to the cabin. 
Turns out he knew Ronnie! Now we are five hundred miles from our hometowns and I meet a young man that knows my dad. What are the chances? My dad was a supervisor for Mrs. Baird's Bread and Ronnie worked at one of the grocery stores they served.  A small world is right.

Thank you for all the heart felt comments you left me about Ronnie in the last post. You know I love you and appreciate each and every comment you leave me.
Also want to thank Rick and Novica for thinking of us bloggers and sponsoring this giveaway.
Hope you have the best of weekends. I see mowing in my forecast because it rained here yesterday.



Love to all,
Maggie

Hugs!

Thank you and Rick for allowing us to enter such a wonderful giveaway and peruse what a tempting website. I am in love with a Deep Blue Glass pitcher which would look wonderful holding flowers or even plain water. Thanks, Ms Pearl, for everthing!

Hey Maggie..I am only getting rid of crafty type stuff..but as for clothes and jewelry..no way..I am loving those..so please sign me up.;) hope you have a great weekend;)

Arkansas Patti said...

That was so neat that your dad knew Ronnie. Hope he liked him.
I will have to pass on the give away though it does look grand. I am in a serious purge mode now and am pitching out rather than taking in. Know you will get lots of takers.
Have a great weekend.

Well I would love to get my husband the Ches set for Father's Day - he loves playing and ours is just about dead! Thank you for entering me.

joanne said...

What an awesome site. I couldn't pick my fist time browsing since I fell in love with so many things. Love the scarves..the colours are so exquisite. Thank you for such a lovely giveaway. Have a good weekend dear one.

Hi Maggie,

Thank you so very much for commenting today on my blog. It has been quite a day going to the Dr's. I sent you an e-mail so if you get a chance read it and you will know what I went through!!

I love "Novica" I found them a few years ago and go on their site every now and then. I love that talented people from all over the world can sell their wares. I feel that you have a piece of art that speaks of a different country and language and no matter who we are or where we live we are connected through the pursuit of creating something from our souls passed on to another soul. We are all connected!!

If I were to win I would pick the
"Blue Baliku robe" as I would love to wrap myself in something from Bali and dream of the ocean and sand in my toes!! Lol

Love and Blessings,

Susan

JaneT said...

I would have to pick the blue hammock. I have always wanted one to string between two trees outside to take a nap or read in. Nice things in that store.

Julia said...

Hi Maggie, what a coincidence that your Dad and Roonie knew eachother. What was the odds of that happening, I wonder. We'll never know....

About the give away, I really need nothing else in my life except the fountain of youth.... hahaha.

Take care dear friend. Hugs. JB

Sue said...

I can tell you have fond memories of your dad. And Ronnie, of course.

And what a great giveaway! My favorite is the Jesus and Mary statue in wood.

=)

I loved the bracelets, and, of course, the more expensive the better. I also loved the cross. However the clothing is a bit youn for a 75 yr old lady..

Wow, I love the musical instruments. I've been looking at a Cajon (drum). $50 would help make it come true :)
It' a neat story and I like the fact that he uses artists from all over.
Thanks Maggie.

Maggie, I thought for sure I entered this giveaway...I always enter your giveaways! Thanks for saying something on my blog about it because I came back and checked and I hadn't...I even went to the Novica site when it was first posted. I'm an idiot! But I do love the clothes and that's what I would go for. Thanks again for reminding me! Good luck to everyone!

There were LOADS of dreamy things on their site, but my heart stopped at the hammock. I loved the sweet bracelts though too!

Tammy@T's Daily Treasures said...

Hi Maggie, it's the 8th and I'm just now reading this, but that's okay. Our mail system here is the pits. Novica contacted me a while back about doing a giveaway but I never did anything with the email. Wasn't sure if it was spam or not. Obviously it's not since I've seen several bloggers have Novica giveaways. Best wishes, Tammy

Linda said...

Oh, I almost missed this! Pick me!

Rebecca said...

PICK ME. I want that swing hammock! This place has great stuff. Thanks for offering friend oh friend... :)
