Ta-dah! Tuesday - Gemmipop Designs Giveaway

What do you think of my new brooch? I bought it from the lovely Gemma at Gemmipop Designs on Etsy, who I discovered via our respective blogs. I love how she's brought the traditional cameo design right up to date, and the fact that it kind of looks like me when I have my hair back.

I went for white because I knew immediately which jacket I'd wear it on, but cameo lady is also available in loads of other shades. She's made from acrylic and costs £6.00.

Gemma also uses her laser cutter to create lots of cute animal brooches, as well as necklaces, earrings and cufflinks. Here's a few of my picks from her shop:

Happily, Gemma has offered one follower of Faith Hope and Charity Shopping £10.00 to spend on pretties from her shop - yay!

The giveaway is open to all followers of my blog - UK and overseas. All you need to do is visit Gemmipop Designs and then leave a comment on this post saying which your favourite item is. Please also state how you follow FHCS and make sure you leave a way for me to contact you.

Alternatively you can gain an extra entry by blogging about the giveaway or putting the following badge on your blog.

I will draw a winner on 5th August. Good luck!

Do link up your ta-dahs as usual, that's if you've done anything other than eat '99s now that the Summer has finally made an appearance. [I'd really appreciate it if you'd please link back to this post if you do add your own.]

  1. My favourite item is the lovely tea pot brooch - I never wear brooches but this would change all that... I also love the star earrings that you show Lakota but can't see them in Gemmipop's shop anywhere. Yes I'm a follower - so please enter me! :-)

    1. I think Gemma just needs to re-add the listing to her Etsy shop, probably someone has bought a pair so it temporarily disappears until she can put it back up.

  6. I really like the goldfish - although it would be cool to get the glasses necklace in red, same as my glasses:D

  7. These are utterly wonderful- the cameo & stars remind me of daughter #2, and the specs & dogs of daughter #1. Must check out this site [I have tweeted]

    blessings xx

  8. Oh this stuff is all the rage now, must check it all out.
    BTW linky thing not working for me...is it just me?

    1. I did set it so you have to have a backlink, but I know you always do link to me, so it's obviously not working properly, maybe because you're in a different country? I've fiddled with it, try again now.

  9. Oh my goodness, I love everything on the site! I'd hapily wear the poodle brooch, the swan brooch or the glasses necklace for starters, but my absoluuuute favourite is the flamingo brooch! Soo 1950's kitch and reminds me of when I used to live in the south of France! (I follow you on google reader, my email is busyvintagebee [at] gmail.com)

  10. Love the flamingo and the bunnies so would love to enter!

  11. I'd have to go for this : http://www.etsy.com/listing/93268511/laser-cut-acrylic-teapot-brooch but tempted by so much more!

    I follow on GFC, and both of you on twitter, and I have tweeted about the competition as well!

  12. Ooh I love the glasses necklace, definitely my favourite!
    I follow on GFC, follow you both on twitter and have tweeted about the giveaway :) xxx

  13. It does look like you Lakota. I thought so as soon as I saw it. Being a West Aussie, I think I'd have to choose the black swan (our state emblem and a cool brooch regardless)
    I follow you and Gemma x

  14. My fav has to be the blue swallow brooch - would be perfect with the rest of my collection.
    Liz @ Shortbread & Ginger

  15. I love that fab cameo - and THE PINK POODLE!!! I follow your blog and facebook and twitter and sometimes I follow you home from the shops and watch you through your bedroom window... And I tweeted and smoke signalled and carrier pigeoned and I have your name tattooed on my glorious arse. So I hope I win! Sarah xxx

  16. Gorgeous giveaway! I have been looking for the perfect poodle brooch for some time, I think that is probably my favourite though it is tough to choose just one!

    You can contact me on Twitter if I win :)

  29. No tah-dahs for me today because... Well I'm lame! I have to enter this competition though, I love these brooches. Xx

  30. My favourite item is the scotty dog brooch. I love hounds, so I'd definitely use the £10 to buy one of those... Not sure which colour. I follow the blog through friend connect. I'm off to tweet now. Xx

  31. My my what a fab giveaway - thanks for teh intro to such a cute label. I'm spoilt for choice: tempted by the Scottie Dog as I had one very similar that I bought from Tammy Girl when I was about 12!. That said I love a tea pot motif. My 6 year old would love the dinosaur and I'm also drawn to the simple star earrings (I'll take one in every colour).
