Mother's Day {review & giveaway} Bejeweled Switch Plate from Gretchent CLOSED

THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED
mothers day button

I hope you are all having a sunny Friday afternoon! Mother's Day is now almost upon us and I have two giveaways left to share with you. The first is a wonderful Bejeweled Switch Plate from Grechent that is sure to brighten up Mom's boudoir, or add a little pizaz to the entry way. These are like mini functuinal art pieces that are an easy way to add some color and whimsy to your home decor. I was super excited when I found out that Grechen from Gretchent was going to send me one of her beautiful switch plates to review! I can't wait until my new place is ready to be decorated, and I get to install this beauty;

 I love the swirly bits, and the colors are just like instant sunshine! The quality is fantastic, everything feels sturdy and held together. The switch plate arrived in a lovely little tissue paper and bubble wrap package held together by 'pretty in pink' thread. There was no way this lovely piece was going to get damaged on its way here!
Here's a peek at some of Gretchen's other creations:

Bejeweled Switch Plate
Wire Cross
Felt Brooch

Felt Coffee Cozy

Eiffel Tower Picture Frame

Such a lovely shop to look through! Gretchen's handmade pieces would make for lovely gifts or as little something for yourself.

The lovely Gretchen has sent me a second Switch Plate to pass on to one very lucky reader!!!
In person the color is more of a really lovely wine red, this would look great as a touch of 'grown-up' decor in the master bedroom or as a treat in the guest bedroom.
