  1. My favorite thing about this Spring is that I am in my first home. I have birds that awake me each morning and I am going to have room for a garage studio for lampwork and an indoor office for my business. I'll be able to design, design, design. It feels like a fresh start for me which is what Spring is all about!~

  18. Hi Lorelei,
    those are very nice beads and pendant :)lovely giveaway !
    opposite to spring in a way with those colors..
    What I love most about spring ...guess it is the rebirth of all plants sleeping during the winter time over here in this cold climate / I am a garden freek :) In a way also a rebirth of people hiding inside during winter like bears now showing up outside faces lifted towards the sun

  33. The smell.
    I love when the orange tree blossoms start to open and the smell is amazing. The word in Spanish for the orange tree flower is Azahar. I love that word. I also love the smell of wet dirt. When it starts raining, there is a smell that is fresh. And of course I love the smell of the many flowers that we get in Spring.
    So I would love to have that gorgeous pendant with those beautiful flowers, so please count me in. Thanks.

  42. Not so much here in Houston, but when I lived up North it was two things that made my heart sing: 1)the million different colors of green that would sprout all at the same time making the view from anywhere just fantastic and 2) the smell of the world after a spring rain. Love that. Also love Golem stuff. Thanks for giving it away!!

    My favorite thing about Spring is how rejuvenated I feel by the emergence of flowers, leaves, baby birds, bees and lightning bugs; the cool breeze, the smell of rain in the air. It just breathes new life into me at the very minute when I think I cannot take the cold any longer!!

I love the blossom and just being able to be outside, to wear flip flops and to leave my jacket at home.

  91. My favorite thing about spring? the flowers. Do they cause me unbearable allergies in the form of runny noses and itchy eyes? yes. But so what? Gardens, yards, and parks the world over spring to life with beautiful colors and fresh smells, the muddy brown turns to springy green, and blogs and facebook pages light up with beautiful pictures. Who couldn't love the flowers? And I LOVE that pendant!!!!

    ReplyDelete

    My favorite thing about Spring - a lot of people might groan about it, but I love the rain. It makes everything smell good. I love the sound of rain on my roof. I love knowing that it nourishes the earth beneath my feet. And every once in a while, I like a gentle thunderstorm.

    ReplyDelete
  94. Gosh, I hardly ever enter clay jewelry giveaways because I make my own, and yes I have tons. But these are special because they are Vlad's.
