Mothers Day NOVICA Giveaway



You have probably already heard of Novica, maybe even here from me, but in case you haven't, Novica is associated with National Geographic and provides artists and artisans around the world a global platform to express their talents and spur creativity.  The site is full of hard to find, unique items that only the Internet infrastructure can allow access to.


Novica has contacted me again and asked if I'd like to give someone $40 to spend on their site.  Well, of course I would love to do that and with Mothers Day fast approaching it's a perfect time to shop at Novica.  I even got to do a little shopping myself and just bought this blouse, aka Hypnotic Geometry!   I can't wait to wear it!

  

Novica carries  all sorts of home decor and furnishings along with a great selection of clothing and accessories for men and women.

Currently they have a Mothers Day Gift section chock full of wonderful finds just for Moms.


I have several other items from Novica including this blouse in dark, chocolate brown.   


I wore the blouse above about a week ago with some cool feather jewelry (which is something I am currently enamored with)  and got lots of compliments on it (from teenagers to Grandmas) while I was out running errands.  





  We used to have a hammock in our backyard near our koi pond where some of our best family  memories were made.  I have the cutest picture of Shawn with four or five of the kids on the hammock when most of them were just babies to toddlers.  

I no longer have the hammock, or the yard, but I still want a hammock somewhere and this is the one I'd choose, from Brazil and sold by Novica, of course.

Isn't the crochet fringe gorgeous?  It's so romantic looking.  I could leisurely spend some time here on this hammock or any of the over 100 they have on their site right now.







Some of my favorite things come from Novica, like these etched amber goblets.  I love amber.



There are so many choices!  What would you choose with $40 to spend at Novica?  Would you give it away or treat yourself to something nice?  For a chance to win from Novica, please leave a comment letting me know what you'd choose.  



For two additional entries leave me a comment on this post if you are a blog follower and another comment here or on my FB page if you are a Facebook fan.  You can find me on Facebook as English Transferware.



The giveaway will run for one week.  The winner will be randomly generated via random.org based on the number of comments from both this blog post and my FB post.  Please leave your email address or make sure that I can contact you if you are the winner!



Good luck!
