300th Post Giveaway!

It seems that the 100th post anniversary of my 200th post is just around the corner!

{via}

I'm four posts away from my 300th, and I'm so excited to celebrate it with you! Thank you so much for sticking with me for so long, through the good, the bad, the ugly, and especially through the last few weeks when I've nothing but talk about school! I would have never been able to do it without all of you wonderful readers!

I thought that to properly say thank you to all of my loyal readers, I would do another giveaway!

Remember when I did my very first giveaway? Well that was small potatoes compared to what I have going on this time!

This time it's not just a solo affair. This time I'm teaming up with the oh-so-lovely and talented Leigh, from Leigh Ashley, to bring you a wonderful giveaway in collaboration with her amazing Etsy shop, Barberry & Lace!



 Look how pretty!


The winner will get a choice of any one item from Barberry & Lace! (Up to a $25 value, including shipping). And I'm pretty sure that choosing what to get is going to be even harder than winning the giveaway! There are so many adorable options!

Here are the rules:
1. Be a follower of The World Is My Oyster
2. Visit Barberry & Lace and me a comment telling me
which piece you could choose if you could have any piece in the shop
(it doesn't have to be the one you get if you win!)
3. For a bonus entry, correctly guess which two of the eight pieces above I already have
(if you know me, if should be easy!)

Leave me a comment for each one, and that's three possibilities to win! 

The giveaway will close in one week, 
on Wednesday, October 13, when I'll announce a winner!

Good Luck Everyone!
And Thank You!

I love Leigh's shop! It's tough to just pick one thing in her shop that I like the most, so I've picked 2 things. I really like the Emily Rose Necklace, and the Elegance Floral Hair Pins.

Kendra said...

I love any of the chrysanthemum earrings or the maroon coraline ring- SO pretty for fall!

Sadie's Momma said...

I don't know you at all, but my best guess for which piece you already own is the pearly treasure necklace... given your blog name and all. :)

Chloe. said...

Clueless said...

It's tough to decide which you own. I think the scissors one and the one with the pearl. Although I *really* can see you with the 'I love you' letter.

Congrats on such a big milestone! It's very impressive! :) I wish you many more!!

As for my favorite piece, a lot of the rings catch my eye and I was being really indecisive so I'm going to list my top 3 favorites.

The victoria necklace. The orange emeline ring (and the rosy one too). And the rainy day necklace.

If I had to guess, I would say that you picked both of ones with pearls, so the oyster and the scissors are my guesses.

if I were to win, I'd chose the oyster necklace. but it was a hard choice.

Ashley said...

I'm guessing that since your blog name has to do with oyster, you have that oyster necklace.
