Shabby Apple Dress & Ring Giveaway

I've told you what's on my kids' Christmas lists...now I want to show you what is on mine:



In addition to a new dress from Shabby Apple, I would also like a pair of high cheekbones and a skin tone that looks good in orange.

But I'd be happy with just the dress.

Speaking of dresses....I'm thrilled to offer one of you this fabulous Shabby Apple dress:



Did you know that Shabby Apple also sells jewelry?

This photograph has inspired me to hang all of my necklaces on tree limbs. Just for fun.

A second lucky reader will win this beautiful ring:


Cool, huh?

If you want a chance to win the dress or the ring, all you've got to do is leave a comment. If you post anonymously, be sure to include some, but not a lot of identifying info (ie. first name + city + state). That's it! It's super easy.

Want your dress/jewelry now? Shabby Apple is offering free holiday shipping on all merchandise!

Wait! There's more! For the next 24 hours, all Shabby Apple jewelry is 25% off! Enter the code "sparkle" at checkout.

This contest starts NOW and ends at midnight EST on Saturday, December 11. The winners will be chosen at random and will be announced shortly thereafter.

GOOD LUCK!
