So here it is, my very first
*The giveaway is now closed*

I had thought about waiting for 100 followers, but at this rate, that would be ages from now.  So, as I watched the followers creep toward 50, I made plans to do one then.  Well, the dahlia post brought all sorts of new followers, so here we are, up to 58!  And by now, you're dying to know what I'm giving away.

 This necklace and earring set!  Unique, original, and made by me!

 The pendant and round stones are 'Russian Jade'.  The beads are a silver lined transparent glass bead.  The necklace measures 17" long.

The matching earrings are 2" long.

The Rules
  • Be a follower of The Life of Riley.
  • Leave a comment on this post telling me which movie you have seen at least 3 times and why.  It can be one that you don't even like.  For example there are many 'kid' movies I've seen more than 3 times!
That's it!  I don't do Facebook, Twitter, I don't have a shop, and you don't even have to blog about the giveaway - unless you want to.  I will take comments until Saturday, 6 pm central time.  I will announce a winner some time on Sunday.

Good luck!

There's a little something for you on my bog today you lovely person.
That isn't a bribe by the way for this fabulous giveaway but hey if it helps my cause ...:)
I've watched all the 'Transporter' films with Jason Statham in them. It all started when I watched the first one with my son and fell head over heels 'in lurve' with Jason Statham's sexy voice...(and his Olympic swimmer's body - pause while I growl - there that's better).I just sit and drool now when I watch's quite awful to see me. I make such a mess.(We all have fantasies). This is a wonderful giveaway and I envy whoever wins this...I know first hand how wonderful your jewellery is :)

I am a new follower.Lovely pieces of jewelery. you are very talented. One of my favorite movies is Bridget Jones Diary. I have watched it like a gazilliion times:)

I'm a follower! And the pieces are fabulous! My FAVORITE movie is Pride and Prejudice. I have read the book a bazillion times and when the Kiera Nightly version came out - I was in heaven. I just love the tormented relationship that Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth Bennet go through - and the fact that this movie gives the story such a happy ending. My favorite part is the very end, when they are married and he asks what he can call her - she replies "Mrs Darcy when you are incandecantly happy." He begins to kiss her over and over and call her Mrs Darcy. I just SWOOOOON. <3

Hi! I'm a follower! I think one of the movies I watched the most would have to be 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles'. When that movie first came out on video, my kids watched it over and over. They played it so much, we had to buy another copy! Thank you for the chance to win your beautiful jewelery. Have a great day!

Mindy said...

Wow! These are beautiful!! You're so amazing. I feel as though it would be cheating to enter, so I won't, but I did want to chime in with one (of the MANY) movie(s) I thought of: Ocean's Eleven. We saw it in the theater for hubby's b-day when it first came out, and we've loved it since. It always cracks me up.

Well, I've been reading your blog for a long time, but have never become a "follower." This giveaway was good incentive! :o)

I've watched Anne of Green Gables several times - more than 3 at least! Love it - it's a "must see" for everyone!

What gorgeous jewelry!

The movie I've seen the most is It's a Wonderful Life - I watch it every year at Christmas, and cry every year in the same places.

Good luck getting to 100.

The movie I've watched about a zillion times is The Aristocats. I was taking care of my 3 year old granddaughter and she loved it. So, of course, I had to watch it with her. Oh, I'm now a follower. I don't blog real often, but do enjoy reading others.
