Music makes the heart.... (a giveaway)



Music has always been a huge part of my life. And I don't just mean dancing alone in my room to the radio, or rocking out to my favorite CD when I'm alone in the car(although I love that too). Some of the best memories I have from growing up are singing with my family. It is still one of my favorite things to do. We would always sing together, and at church, and in school, so I grew up singing. I also played flute for many years and had a few piano lessons, although I'm not very good at either of those.

In college my minor was music and I was able to take a year of voice lessons. It is still a passion of mine that I really only get to fulfill by sharing music with others in my life. There is a young girl here in my neighborhood that I get to work with, which I love. And I teach piano and voice and I also include a lot of music in my preschool. (My preschool is actually called Do Re Mi Preschool which not everyone here understands). So you could say it's a huge part of my life, especially since I married a band teacher so I get exposure to the instrumental end of music as well. I don't get to actually sing much anymore but I know it's just the season of my life.

Wow, this post is even getting a bit boring for me. Sorry friends. This is turning into a really long and drawn out introduction to my newest giveaway so let's get on to business! I am always on the lookout for interesting and unique musical gifts. The Christmas before last I got Eldon a lamp made out of a clarinet that ended up being a really really old flute (but still cool). I was wandering around Etsy and found a fun shop called Diamonds and Sprinkles. I contacted her a while ago and she agreed to do a giveaway here on my blog. Sweet!

Here is the necklace I have!



I just got it tonight so I had my hubby take a quick pic of me wearing it while playing the guitar (not that you can tell). I was trying to fix it up in Paint.net which is my free version of Photoshop but it was taking too long so this is whatcha get! I LOVE it! It's big (which I'm totally into right now, and it's shiny and sparkles all over the room. Just imagine how it would look with a fancy black dress on performance day!?




Here are a couple of other pieces she has that I just love! Her items are not just music related but I think they are just so unique, funky and cute!



And here is what you can win! Isn't it gorgeous??
She has so many beautiful pieces but since I wanted to dedicate this post to music I asked her if we could give away a music piece. I hope you love it as much as I do!



Want to win??? Here's how:

(Required for initial entry) Finish my post title for me. Leave a comment and say "Music makes the heart......." and finish the sentence for me. I can't wait to hear your answers!

  1. So cool! Music is my thing too. I was in choir throughout my school life and I lived for music.

    How about: "Music makes my heart sing in harmony for my mind's melody."

  5. Music makes the heart soft and susceptible. It does for me...I rarely cry, but music can move me to tears where life's miseries cannot.

    ReplyDelete
  6. Hmmm... this is hard because it really depends on what music I am listening to. Music makes my heart happy usually. I try to listen to music that is good. Very cute necklace.

  26. WOW! Music makes the heart dance. Good music makes my heart and body jump into it and listen with my soul and soak it in. Honestly it happens with slow,fast, country,classical, any MUSIC I listen to and like my heart jumps in and my soul and mind take the song in. When I hear a good song once I remember it forever. Which sometimes makes me mad cause sometimes I can't remember the title or who sung it. Well I put your button on my blog (hope's that not too stalky of me but I'd really like to see what you are up to from time to time) My blog address is http://covingtonfamily5.blogspot.com/. I never win anything so if I win, nice. But my real win is if you go to my blog and leave a comment. I LOVE comments. Anyway have a great day Sharla, and if you have time tell me what you think of my blog. I just set it up to keep relatives and friends aware of my thoughts and musings. Pictures help make the blog more appealing. Anyway this is a LONG comment, I better shut up now. You are one awsome blogger!
