Congratulations Maggie, you are the winner!!! You will love these earrings!
I will send you an email to confirm too!

================================================
I love looking around in Etsy, it's like going shopping in a shopping mall but without the hassle of carrying all your bags around and having to actually get in your car and drive to and from the mall!
I found this store called BellaLuAndMe that really caught my eye, not only do I love the name, the jewelry is gorgeous! Laura send me not 1 but 2 pairs of earrings to review, and I have to tell you they are even more pretty than on the pictures!!!

The Octagon Swarovski crystal earrings:

And the Swarovski crystal briolette & cream freshwater pearl earrings:
The Octagen earrings I wear nearly every day. I normally wear stud earrings (which I got from my husband 12 years ago!) but I love the way these earrings feel, how they move when I walk and how light they are plus they just go with any outfit!
The briolette earrings are more dressy earrings I think and I've only worn them once! I think it's time for my husband and myself to go out again so I can wear these beauties!

A little more info on BellaLuAndMe:

I am the mother of two beautiful girls and the wife of my best friend. By day I am a Financial Analyst and by night, late night, after everyone is asleep, I make jewelry! I took a basic wire wrapping class about seven years ago and have loved making and creating jewelry every since. I am blessed to have the support of everyone around me. It has become a true passion of mine and I hope it is reflected in the work that I do. I really never felt like a creative person, but this passion of mine has revealed a side of me that I did not know existed. There is so much more to learn! Metalsmith, soldering, sewing, papercrafts…now if there were only more hours in the day...

Laura doesn't only have earrings, there's necklaces, bracelets, jewelry for special occasions and more.

These are a couple of my favorites:
I love this bracelet:

And I adore this necklace, I just love the color!
I also love this chunky opal and wood necklace, again love the colors, the design.

For a limited time, Laura offers free first class shipping! She will refund your shipping, after payment has been received.

Laura has generously offered a pair of the Octagon Swarovski earrings for one of my lucky readers!!! I can only tell you, you are going to love them!!!

For a chance to win these earrings, please head on over to BellLuAndMe, have a look around and let us know your favorite piece of jewelry. I know it's going to be hard to pick just one.
For a 2nd entry, become a follower of A latte in the morning (link is on the top right) and let me know in a separate comment that you did so. Current followers, just let me know you're already a follower.
Please make sure you leave a valid email address in the comment.

The deadline for this giveaway is 02/26/09 midnight. The winner will be emailed and announced here on the 27th. (US residents only for this giveaway)

Laura, thank you so much for this!
