Holly Lane Designs Giveaway!

Things are still nutty over here and I'm not exactly rocking things in the Mom department. I really enjoyed discovering that my ELEVEN year old son has been wearing kids' size ONE baseball cleats for the last 3 seasons. He told me his feet have been hurting for years, maybe because he's a size THREE. He almost kissed me on the mouth when I bought him new ones.

And the big school decision? Aargh.

Anyway, since I don't really want to write about my glorious life today, I thought I'd spread a little love to you in the form of an awesome giveaway!

This spring, in the span of one week, I noticed 3 people wearing gorgeous, unique sterling silver jewelry. Each piece was different, but each appealed to me. Turns out they were all from Holly Lane Designs! It felt like when you learn a cool new vocab word and it starts to turn up all over the place.






I contacted the artist, Tiffany Scott, and saw her entire line, each piece inspired by a Bible verse or Christian image. I learned her jewelry often sparks conversations the way it did with me. In fact, Tiffany, a mom of 5 and an awesome artist, creates her jewelry as an opportunity for people to share their lives and their faith with each other.

I bought the dogwood earrings necklace and am in love! They are sterling silver and smoky quartz and, as all HLD pieces do, came with a story card explaining the Christian symbolism that inspired them. As Molly says, "Are you going to wear the same jewelry every single day, Mom?" Yes, I think I will.

Here I am wearing it at BlogHer with Christy:





Tiffany and I would love to offer a pair of Holly Lane Designs earrings to a lucky winner!

I picked the "Story" earrings to give away. Here's what Tiffany has to say about them:

"This particular piece is meant to represent the story God has written for us. In it He has placed characters (i.e.broken homes, small town, big city) and given us a plot unique to each one of us. He has woven our story together with others and has put us on a journey where we can discover Him. He writes with a love for us like no other!"

I love sharing my story with you through An Inch of Gray, and reading your blogs and your comments to learn more about your stories!

I'm sure you'll love these earrings as much as I do!



To enter, just visit Holly Lane Designs, then come back and tell me what your favorite piece is.

For an additional entry, just leave me a second comment if you follow An Inch of Gray!

For a third entry, feel free to blog or tweet about the giveaway.

Contest ends Sunday morning at 10.

And, as an added bonus, Holly Lane Designs is having a 20% off sale on the entire line of jewelry, through August 29th!

oh, and you know I follow an Inch of Gray. In fact, I'm such a fan that I frequently sport my very own inch of gray in tribute to you. (And in homage to laziness.)

My daughter is a size 12. And she's been wearing a size 10. Thank you for making me feel better! That jewelry is GORGEOUS.

I love the wings earrings so much! Just perfect!

Re: Your mom job, missing the cleat size change.....Better than the time we had our 4th grader examined for glasses and he gasped with amazement at the pretty trees he could see for the first time!! Ack! Not cool!

Brenda Susan said...

And i want some cool earrings!! Ha!

Wow, hard to choose a favorite. I like the vine necklace and the fleur de lis necklace (my son just started at LSU, and I've been researching that shape and its history.)

Beautiful things!

What beautiful jewelry. And you look fabulous in that top, by the way. So many beautiful pieces! I adore the Tree of Life on Turquoise and The Olive Branch. The Olive Branch reminds me of a spectacular piece I almost bought in Scotland. Amazing. Good luck with Molly's school decision - I've been praying for you!!!

I love the ornate cross pendants! I also love the ribbon pendant because it is so similar to my church body's symbol (LCMS). But I definitely love your dogwood pendant & earrings because I am from Missouri & that's our state tree.
