It's a giveaway!


Glory Be!! Bessie and Bea have joined the Gypsy Caravan! The One World One Heart 2009 blogging event is well underway, and the old girls don't want to be left out! We're giving stuff away, folks.

To win the prize, all you have to do is leave a comment ON THIS POST ONLY, with your name and email address and you'll be signed up, lickedly-split ~ your name will be put into one of our pillbox hats for a chance to win.

And just what are we giving away? We're proud as punch that you asked. See the snapshots? We will send out not one, but three prizes to three lucky readers!
If you know Bessie and Bea at all, you know that they're are a couple of tree huggers, so they made two pendants (Beach Babes and Granny's Pendant) and one brooch (Sharing) out of re-purposed materials. Something a little funky for the prize winners to wear to a morning at the BINGO Hall; for an afternoon out at the Antique Mall, or a romantic evening with the Mister.

Now, please be sure there is a way for Bessie & Bea
to contact you. (Leave your info in your comment). We will be making the draw on February 12th
and will contact the winner(s) at that time.
We look forward to hearing from our lovely readers all over the world, and we sincerely hope that you will all take the time to look around our blog!

Giddily yours,
Bessie & Bea
