So here it is - courtesy of my Momma. She sells this jewelry and it is called lampwork glass jewlery. Are any of you familiar with it? This jewlery is all handmade by a highly skilled artist who uses a torch and different colored glass to create these works of art. Take a look at what I'm giving away. I am still be amazed that someone made all of this by hand, it is just so beautiful! The lucky winner will get all three pieces!

The jewelry is gorgeous, and I love pink.
My favorite kitchen gadget is my immersion blender (stick blender ). You can make drinks with it, puree sauces, and mix right in the pot. You don't have to drag out your big, heavy, blender.

Holly said...

GORGEOUS JEWELRY!!! My fave kitchen item would be my DISHWASHER! I love to throw all my dirty dishes in that bad boy and let it do the cleaning for me!! : )

Kimberly said...

That is gorgeous jewelry Brandie! My favorite kitchen gadget is probably (other than my coffee maker) my ice cream scoop. I use it for muffins, cupcakes, cookies and of course... ICE CREAM!

Haley @ The Girly Girl Cooks said...

I love this giveaway! Congrats on reaching 300 :) My favor kitchen tool is my chef knife...it is bright orange and super sharp!

Tiffany said...

This jewelry is BEAUTIFUL! (Totally my style :D). Wow, this is a hard one. Favorite kitchen gadget? Well, I actually do not have many gadgets (I live in a tiny apt.)... I'm going to say, my blender!!!

Tina said...

I'd have to say my favorite kitchen item is most definitely my bread machine! I use it several times a week for different types of dough...pizza, breads, dinner rolls,etc...I've owned the same Zojirushi brand machine for 17 yrs and don't know what I'd ever do without it!!
Oh and the jewelry is beautiful! I don't know if I'd be able to hang on to it if I won though...my daughter would probably want to "borrow" it! :-)

lauram624 said...

Definately my utensil turn about! Keeps me organized. That jewelry is beautiful.

Martha (MM) said...

What gorgeous jewelry! My favorite kitchen tool is my big electric fry pan. Since I am usually cooking large portions it's so much easier than having to cook in two or three batches.
Sorry, I don't do facebook but I did finally just get on board with twitter.
Enjoy the weekend :-)

Carolyn said...

The jewelry is gorgeous, Brandi! Hmmm, my favourite kitchen tool...it's a toss up between my kitchenaid mixer or my kitchenaid food processor.

Have to agree with so many others - the crock pot! Just love that "tool". Also, love the jewelry - would proudly love to be able to wear it! Thanks for the chance and the wonderful blog!

Love your blog!! I agree, my favorite kitchen 'helper' would have to be my crockpots, especially at Christmas time and family get-togethers!

penKnife said...

I love that glass beaded necklace! And your blog, of course!!
My favourite gadget (right now) would have to be my Micro-plainer. I don't know if it qualifies as a gadget but I also adore my new Kitchen Aid cast iron oval pot ... what did I ever do without before?!! It was a Christmas gift ... I must of been a very good girl last year!! LOL

mamag said...

LOVE my silpat! =)

Claire said...

My absolutely FAVORITE thing in the kitchen is my Wusthof Santoku knife ... it slices, it dices, it really catches fish! Well, maybe not the catching fish part, but it DOES do even some fine slicing if I need it! And I love the tapered edge on it that protects my fingers when slicing.
