Here's what I won from Mimi-Toria's Designs!!!

I won!!! Yep, I won a Mimi-Toria Designs original necklace from my good JunkMarketStyle friend and artist, Gretchen (see her blog - she is amazingly talented - gifted, actually!!). I'm thrilled to have one of her designs - very simple, sweet, elegant design - and, I can wear it with anything!

I've met Gretchen through the website, and now here in blogland - what a great place. I'm inspired daily by the blogs I visit, and the creative, generous, fun people I've "met" - and Gretchen is one of my favorites to visit! Gretchen will soon be selling her vintage jewelry creations in Anoka, Minnesota - see her blog for information. It's going to be done in a French flea market styled setting - as an "occasional sale"...big stuff in Minnesota - I might have to come out for some market research - would love to do this in Ohio! - Another member of this group is Lani (also from the JunkMarketStyle website) here's her blog - - another very talented lady and junk friend... (Wishing you and your partners tons of success!)

Well, just wanted to give a quick "shout out" and THANK YOU to my junk friend, and share pics of the necklace, the wrapping (which is so pretty too...and as I was told...reused from a present from another junkmarket friend - I'm gonna pass it on too!).

Thanks again Gretchen! I know we'll get to meet one of these days!

What a nice thing to find in my mailbox...

Great "hand-me-down" packaging... (I'll keep it going, Gretchen!)

Up close and beautiful...
In an elegant, "buttony" setting...

    Thanks so much for your very nice words you spoke of me in your blog post. You are a gem!
    I'm so happy you won the pendant necklace, as I know you appreciate it as well as will enjoy wearing it.
    Your photographs are great and I so appreciate you taking the time to make this gift from me and feature it on your wonderful blog. We sure do hope that you make a trip to Minnesota sometime for checking out the occasional sales, and would love to show you around and spend time with you.
    Your friendship is a blessing!


Thanks! It was so sweet of you to pop in for a visit! Have a blessed day!
