One of the best parts of blogging has been making such wonderful new friends so far away and so near to me! I want to give back to my friends, so I am giving away a pair of Swarovski crystal shamrock earrings - topped with an Oregon Sunstone, all made in solid sterling silver. The Sunstone is a small clear stone with a hint of yellow. This stone comes from my state here in Oregon. I will also give away a second gift, a stitch marker made with the same stones on a sterling french wire that opens. These are handmade with love by me.Giveway RULES -- To win you just need to -- 1.

I have McAlister blood in me - so my ancestors lived in Scotland or Northern Ireland. I love St. Patricks Day!
You can wear these all year, not just this time of year. :-) See the yellow "sun" in the Oregon Sunstone?
These are the ones I made for myself - so we'll be wearing the same jewelry!
The 2nd prize will be this sterling silver stitch marker. :-)
The tulips my honey got for me!
Love me some tulips.
My sweetheart asked me if I'd like to go to Tad's for dinner.. ummm.. YES!
We got a table by the window in the old part of the restaurant - where all the locals go. :-)
The Sandy River was high and fast, there were several boat loads of fishermen floating by.
We even saw one guy pulling a big salmon out of the water!
This guy is probably a fishing guide, and he's working really hard to row upstream in the fast moving water.
Dinner arrived and the camera was put aside.. lol.. crispy fried chicken, baked potato, green beans with ham and onion -- and a big fluffy dumpling floating in savory chicken gravy!
(The dumpling was Dayle's - I just used it for the photo.. hehe)And so -- our Sunday is upon us - it's a gorgeous sunny day. Dayle just put some BBQ ribs in the oven. What a guy! Good luck on the giveaway! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
