My First Giveaway!

I've never done a giveaway on a blog before, mainly because I figured I didn't have anything to give - you know, I don't have an Etsy shop, I don't offer custom blog design, I haven't ever gone down the path of sponsored giveaways. I just haven't done it.

But then I realised, of course I can run a giveaway! And, with my new little blog just ticking over 1000 page views, what better way to celebrate than with a giveaway. So as a way of saying thank you so much for reading, I'm giving away this beautiful pair of [new] citrine and pyrite dangle earrings.

How these lovelies came to be in my possession [there's always a story] - well, last year one of the things on my birthday goal list was to buy myself a citrine crystal. I found a beautiful little necklace with 3 raw citrine pendants and lovely pyrite beads on Etsy [from this lovely shop], and the deal was done. When I received my package in the mail, I was pleasantly surprised to discover a little gift included - some citrine and pyrite dangle earrings! Unfortunately, I can't wear them [I wear larger size jewellery in my ears], so they had to find a new home. I tried to give them away once, but they were rejected, which to me simply means that I was giving them to the wrong person. And they've been sitting around my desk waiting for something to happen to them ever since. Which has been quite a while.

Anyway, these earrings need to find their rightful home, so they are being offered as my first ever blog giveaway. To enter, all you have to do is:

a) follow Dusty Country Road via Google Friend Connect or Bloglovin, and
b) let me know in a comment on this post that you're following [just leave a comment if you're already following and want in!].

For bonus entries, you can follow on Instagram and/or Twitter and/or Pintrest, and just let me know in your comment. One entry will be picked at random as the winner, which I'll announce here on the blog. The giveaway is open now and will finish at midnight [Aussie time] on Sunday 24 February with the winner announced the next day. Good luck, and thanks again for supporting Dusty Country Road.

Oh and you can see the necklace I bought on my Pintrest board!
