Houston's Fall Art Festival + BRACELET GIVEAWAY

 Photography by my son, Steve Harris
it appears in his beautiful coffee table book of
portraits of Texas singers & songwriters...

Each year Houston has two major juried art festivals,
one in the spring & another one in the fall.
This coming weekend will be the Fall Festival of the Arts,
in which my brilliant son is participating. As some of you know,
he's a commercial photographer & with advertising spending way down
he & most of his peers have seen some difficult times.

He's been selected along with a few other artists to be in a
competition which runs online. He is thrilled, of course, as it
raises his visibility.

I would be overjoyed if you have time to pop
over to the Facebook site & vote for him.

His name is Steve Harris.

He also has a blog which is photo specific if you would care to look
at some of his personal favorites.

2 Swarovski Crystal Bangle Bracelets
one for each arm
these pieces + others similar are in our collection
each holiday season; they are not at all "junk jewelry"
(I wear them) & will add big-time sparkle to any outfit.

Pardon for a small commercial break,

I am trying to reach 300 followers so I can justify opening a shop on
for my jewelry designs.

I have a new client, a wonderful boutique in Texas who will
be carrying my exclusive designs before the holiday season...I'll keep
you updated on this new venue.

RULES: Be or become a follower, refer one of your blogging friends
to me & tell them to mention you sent them over, leave a really nice comment,
& voila you're entered. Each friend who comes over will count as
another 2 entries for you. I'm encouraging all of my loyal followers to
participate...I LOVE you guys!

for those of you who add Splenderosa's Giveaway to your blog
you will receive 2 extra entries. thank you SO much for this
drawng will be on this next coming Sunday,
winner announced on Monday

really nice way of acknowledgement..

Please know how much I value your comments. I read every single one and do hope you will take the time to leave your thoughts. I think InstaGram with the Emojis have taken a lot away from blogging, but I love IG too.
