Are you ready for Summer?

Well I am but I'm dying down here in the Louisiana heat but before I go any further...


I am rejuvenated...thanks to all of you!

But most of all, I missed all of you and thought about you daily! I was able to get a few things done and I was even able to be a little creative!

So, back to the question in my title...

Are you ready for Summer?

If you tell me yes...this bracelet could be yours.

Summer is coming (feels like it's already here)

and I'm dreaming of the beach...

Sparkling blue water...

And sea shells plenty.

Is this dream for real? Yes, it is. My dream is for real!

Just leave me a comment on THIS post for a chance to win my handmade SUMMER BRACELET, loaded with tiny sea shells, blue, green, brown and clear crystals, pearls and abalone shell.

When is the first day of Summer? You guessed it...June 21st.

So on Sunday evening, June 21st, I will draw one winner, slip this bracelet in the mail and pass my Summer Dream on to you!

Whew it's hot...can you feel the heat???

I am SO ready for summer, O love summer it is my (second) fave season of the year. Love the chirping of the birds, the bumble bees (yes, I like them, lol)the flowers that are in full bloom etc. LOVE the sun and the high temperatures, I thrive on the heat, real heat. I am always cold so the summer heat does wonders for me, I feel as if I can move mountains in the high temps lol.

Adore, absolutely adore the bracelet ♥♥

Hugs from Marian

I love the braclet, that is so wonderful.

Enjoy your Summer!

Your back! Your back! Its been much to quiet without you. I hope you are refreshed and renewed. The bracelet is a beauty - love the colors :) And yes - I am SO ready for summer - a little heat and some sunshine would just set me right up!

Hi Jodie,
Boy, am I ever ready for summer. I love this bracelet. I'm a bracelet freak. I always have one on, and I would love this little treasure.

Glad you're back. I am ready for summer-but it is hot,hot,hot here too. This just makes SilverBella in cold Omaha sound that much better!

Frippery said...

Oh Jodie I am so ready for summer if this is what it brings! That is lovely. We will be doing the Burlington Antique show on Sunday, 1st day of summer and Father's Day as well! I am taking a tip from you and going on a blog sabbatical for a few weeks. Too much time consumed. I will be checking back on Sunday evening though, just on the slim chance that that could be my bracelet! I wish everyone luck. But mostly me, teehee. Glad you're back, hugs, Pam

The Victorian Parlor said...

Jodie you're back!!! I really missed you! Blogland isn't the same when you aren't here:).

Glad that you got so much accomplished. The bracelet is absolutely amazing-you really are gifted (definately enter me:).



The Victorian Parlor said...

Oops! I was supposed to tell you that I'm ready for summer! Yup, I'm ready (don't have much choice summer is coming with temps in the 100's being predicted for the weekend).

Ragamuffin Gal said...

I am so glad you are back Jodie! It is good to see your blog sparkling with life and color again!

I am so ready for summer ~ I've been taking my swimsuit and stretching it out getting ready to pop inside of it for the pool this weekend! And I'm ready for vacation too!

Your bracelet is breathtaking and I am sure whoever wins will treasure it! Blessings, Katie

trash talk said...

Were you gone...I didn't notice! (And with that statement her nose grew 12".) I have missed you girlie girl!!! I hope you got everything done you set out to do.
Now am I ready for summer...are you freaking kidding me? It's already 98 degrees and rising here in Big D! BUT, if I win that bracelet I will look really cute wearing it with all my good humor man white and the shells are bound to make me feel cooler, right? Or at least I will look cool. It is gorgeous and obviously your time off was well spent!
Glad you are back!!!

Yippee! Girl, I am SO ready for Summer. Bring it on! Sunshine here we come! Although I can't complain about the Spring this year in the Northwest, it's been beautiful. I have yet to win a giveaway so maybe this little beauty will come to me!

Stephenie said...

Jodie, That bracelet is just soooo pretty..I love it so much...It just reminds me of the summer... Your pictures turned out amazing..
For some reason my google reader had been saying you haven't had any posts...Now tonight I'm looking and I've missed 5 of your post...How in the heck does that happen...I've been missing you and you've been posting all a long...Hope all is well...

vintage at heart said...

I am sooo ready for a beach vacation and am soooo missing my Florida beaches!! I've never lived this far from the coast and your fabulous bracelet may be just the thing I need to "tide" me over until I can make it to the coast!!!! Glad you are back!!

Caitlin said...

Linda said...

Welcome back! :-)

YES, I'm ready for summer - even though it wasn't officially summer, we've been enjoying our pool since the end of May - the weekend before Memorial Day to be exact - and it's felt like summer. But now, it's REALLY hot and humid this weekend so you can guess where I'll be... :-)

Tina said...

Missed you gal!! And YES, Bring Summer on!!!

FitToSeeJane said...

Yes!!!! I am so ready!
The question is, Is summer ready for ME!

I love the bracelet. I can hear the sea just looking at it!

Anonymous said...

Welcome back Jodie! :-) Glad to hear you feel refreshed :-)

Oooohhhhh summer here has already gone :-( The rainy season has started. We only have to seasons here :-) Good for you guys there that you're still looking forward for summer. :-)

Now I have to agree I'm missing the beach, not cause it's not summer anymore but I'm no way near the beach, only trees :-). Unlike where we used to live where it's just a walking distance away . . . now we have to travel hours. - So see your bracelet may remind someone else on something to look forward to, while for me it is something to reminisce by :-) The swirl effect the beads make is cool.

Becca said...

Wow! What a beautiful piece Jodie :) I am totally ready for summer...if only it would stop raining here :)

Lee W - The Way I See It said...

Oh girl, you have no idea...YES. It's rained almost every day of June, here in Pa. No real sun, although the flowers and lawn like it- cool and just enough sun to do well. That's the only good thing. Count me in for the amazing bracelet!

Gail said...

Yes, I'm so ready for summer, it just doesn't last long enough here in Oregon. Love that bracelet!

Stephanie O. said...

Hey, girlie! Thanks for stopping by...I cannot believe how pretty that bracelet is--will your talents ever stop amazing me??? Hey, I'm hosting a silver bella sassy stash swap and hope you'll join! Not sure when Heather will be scheduling it for sign-ups but wanted to give you a heads up that I'm attempting to be a hostess...

Karen Valentine said...

Jodie, I would love to entered for this bracelet. Thanks! I'm really enjoying your blog so far. May have to add it to my blog roll!!!!
