NEW Give Away Finally

I have been busy this summer as we all have but I think it is time for a give away once again. This give away is to say good bye to summer and welcome cooler temperatures!! Holly from foodforthesoul has generously offered a gorgeous chaplet. Here is what she has to say about it.

Unbreakable Chaplet of Saint Joan of Arc

I wanted to give this chaplet a strength and beauty as befitting a Warrior of God, such as St. Joan of Arc. The 8mm round & 10mm faceted tiger eye beads seemed, to me, to be ideal for this purpose. There are a total of 19 beads, one for each year of St. Joan's brief life. I wrap-linked each bead with 20g nickel silver wire to give this unbreakable chaplet maximum strength and durability. The center connector, tube bead spacers and 4mm rondelles are lead-free Tibetan silver. The winner will also receive a prayer card, instructions for praying the chaplet and an organza drawstring pouch. 

And here are pictures of the beautiful piece....

Good luck ....Donna


  1. Oh Donna, this is a wonderful item ... such power and meaning in this piece.

    Right now, I'm waiting to see if we get anymore rain. Our courtyard floods every time it rains and I'm in Florida .. have to call because I see that the gutter is broken and leaks between my townhouse and another. Otherwise our summer has been hot hot hot like everyone else I suppose.

    Love to all,

  2. This is beautiful and powerful, Holly! I was just reading a book that mentioned Ste. Joan the other day, and thought I would like to paint her.
    How are your horsies Donna? And your jack asses, human and otherwise, LOL. Love to all♥

  3. This is beautiful! I think I would have to give this to my sister if I won because it is one of her favorite Saints.

  4. Donna, this is beautiful! So much meaning and very powerful! I would love to be entered into this giveaway ;o) My summer, I have been doing tones of gardening! I just said to my mom the other day, I want winter here! LOL!
