July Sponsor Giveaway #7 - Pretty Things By Meg

"Hello! My name is Meg, and I like to make pretty things :) I have always swooned over jewelry, particularly earrings. Just over a year and a half ago, I decided to try making my own and have been creating ever since. I love to take apart vintage jewelry found at estate sales and the like and combine elements of them with new beads/findings to create an entirely unique piece of jewelry. In my shop, you will find vintage-meets-modern (or vintern, as my husband has dubbed it) earrings and necklaces in a variety of textures and colors, bold and subtle."

-Meg

Pretty Things by Meg is offering $25 shop credit to the winner of this giveaway. All you need to do is share your favorite scent in the comments below. Winner will be chosen on Friday.

xoxo,
Rachel
