A Montana Poet & A Necklace: Encouragement Comes From Unexpected Places (a giveaway!)

I just got this in the mail:
 (sorry bad pictures taken at night, as usual!)
 Sherry showed up in the comments here last year, and I was intrigued because she is a poet and I know absolutely nothing about poetry. (Besides limericks involving Bob Vila. shhh) I started reading her blog and suddenly I like poetry. Like this one.

And she started making glass pendants that have lines from her poems on them. Done in paper collage..that she cuts out of vintage books and papers...and God do we know how much I love anything one might call "vintage".

First I bought this one back when she was doing the dog tags:
 Because it was around the time that I was flipping out over the survey, so when I saw "I'm not prepared for this" - I thought yes. I need that around my neck. (I also need Xanax probably.)

Now she's doing the glass tiles.. I asked her to make one out of this poem: "One False Move and you've bought a horse" - because I feel like I fell into this project on accident.

So here we are. I've got myself a horse pendant.

And an encouraging friend in Montana who makes art out of words!

I've met an awesome bunch of people through this blog. I may have to offer one of these up for a giveaway - I've never done a giveaway before..how about this one?
I'll leave this post up for a few days, if you want to enter this giveaway leave a comment here saying which pendant you like best (if you follow link to the store there are lots more options than just the two I posted above - I don't think I was clear on that lol)

  7. If we are saying which one from the Etsy page then Surrender is my favorite followed by Faith then Melody. If we are talking about the two on your page then Stay Still is my favorite. All of them are truly beautiful!
