An inspired gift idea for your holiday shopping list. (And you can win it!)


Inspired is most definitely the first thing that came to mind when I first visited Lisa Leonard’s charming blog and beautiful custom handmade jewelry store. Wow! I just love it! :) Seriously- love reading about her darling family, her fashion (ultra hip!), her photography (so stunning and serene) and her sense of style is so what I want to be! I browsed pages and pages of her blog- her color inspiration posts are my favorite!! :)


Meet Lisa – so sweet :) and look! A scarf! :D Ya’ll know I’m a sucker for scarves. ;)

When Lisa contacted me about doing a giveaway on, I was thrilled. Thrilled, thrilled, thrilled! :) Beyond thrilled. And honored!! Just look where all Lisa’s been featured! :)

If you have someone special on your Christmas list this year, or are wondering what to get the hard-to-buy-for mom, sister or friend who has everything?? :) You’ll definitely want to check out Lisa’s designs. And you’ll probably want to leave the browser window open on your dear husband’s computer too! ;)

Just look at a few of these delightful pieces by Lisa! :)

Custom Handmade Family Tree Necklace
Oh my goodness. It’s a family tree necklace!! A hand-stamped tree with each family member’s name stamped around the edge! This is just too sweet. :)

I would buy a necklace for myself … and ignore the fact that I’m only supposed to buy for others so close to Christmas!

Vicki November 25, 2009 at 5:07 pm

I would LOVE to get a family tree necklace, but I know my family is not complete yet…

So I would definately ge the “be still” necklace you showcased in your post!

Cydne November 25, 2009 at 5:14 pm

These are beautiful – I don’t think I could give one away though until I had one of my own!

sinika November 25, 2009 at 5:18 pm

I would get the family tree for my sister– because she’s so amazing! :) Happy Thanksgiving!

Bridgette November 25, 2009 at 5:39 pm

Oh my….I love, love, love the family tree necklace! I would wear it and NEVER take it off!

Lauren November 25, 2009 at 6:42 pm

I would get the dewdrop necklace for my Mom – she’s always thinking of other people and this would be a nice gift to surprise her with!

Valery Bunnell November 25, 2009 at 7:49 pm

These are so cute! I’ve been looking for some new jewelry.

Sue Flynn November 25, 2009 at 7:57 pm

Oh my! Lisa’s jewelry is just wonderful. What a natural talent she has, and so creative. Thanks for sharing.

Stacey November 25, 2009 at 7:59 pm

OMG!!!! i LOVE her designs. I saw her ad in Real Simple Magazine and have been dreaming about her pieces ever since. I would probably keep the piece for myself (my jewelry is pretty outdated :>), Hope thats not being too selfish) If and when i buy, i will most likely purchase the be still necklace:

Thanks for the chance,
Happy Thanksgiving& Happy Holidays

First of all, I love, love love your website. It is on my list of super favorite things!!!! As for Lisa’s creations, it is very hard to choose just one thing but I would have to say the open circle bracelet is my favorite. I would want to keep it all for me but I would have give it to my precious daughter-in-law and then buy another to give to my precious daughter-in-law-to-be!!
