For 2 1/2 years we've been acquiring things for "baby E" in our home that either embrace the Ethiopian culture or helped us to feel closer to him/her. Now that we've decided that Ethiopia is no longer in our families future, we no longer know what to do with these things. Some of them, we are going to keep to teach our children about the culture because we love it so much. Other things, we feel could use a new home.
When we began our journey to baby E back in January of 2009, we began trying to learn everything we could about Ethiopia. I began to surf blogs and soon stumbled across Junkposse and I fell in love with not only her jewelry, but also her story. Tracy is an adoptive mom and grandmother and dedicates her work to various causes. Her work is amazing and a portion of her profits goes toward numerous non-profit organizations. Once I saw Tracy's work, I knew that someday I wanted to own one of her necklaces.
Our first giveaway is a gently used (I've only had it a few months) necklace that was made by Tracy and it's in the shape of a wing with the word Ethiopia inscribed on the back. Tracy designed this necklace for the Ethiopian Angels because when she looks at the shape of Ethiopia she thinks it looks like it's shaped like a wing. Take my word for it, is even more beautiful in person!
To win this necklace, simply leave a comment telling my why you would like to have it and if you have a blog I'd love it if you could blog about the giveaway. We will be drawing a winner sometime next Saturday (5/21)...my first day of summer break!!!
