Today I have a little something for the Greek goddess in all of you… golden gorgeousness from Eddera. And I have three pairs of earrings to give away, too!

My favorite thing about Eddera‘s pieces is how feminine they are without being overly sweet. It’s probably a good thing I don’t own one of each, or I’d display my total lack of self-control by wearing them all at the same time.

All of Eddera‘s pieces are perfect little pretties that you could wear on your wedding day and beyond – or maybe kindly gift to your bridesmaids, too. Wouldn’t your girls love a pair of these earrings? Wouldn’t you?

Good, because I’m giving some away! All you need to do is check out the Eddera website, then come back here and leave a comment telling us what piece you’d most like to have for your own. You have until 5:00 PM (PST) on Thursday, January 12th to enter, and I’ll announce three randomly selected winners on Friday, January 13th.

Holy bananas it’s 2012! I have to confess, I’ve been feeling a little blue this week – as nice as it is to be home, I always feel a little sad when the holidays are over. Putting away decorations, saying goodbye to friends and family, catching up on emails, eating fewer cookies… Does anyone else get holiday let-down? Thankfully there are lots of exciting things happening in 2012 to look forward to! Like links!

SO many links for you today!

Ariella Chezar is far and away one of my all-time favorite creative people ever of all time. Ever. Her work is one of the reasons I fell in love with weddings, and every time I see a photo of her flowers, it’s like a little gift. And if you feel that way, too, then you’re really going to love this: Ariella is hosting a floral design workshop in Maui!

The three-day class will focus on color, choosing the right flowers, and of course creating jaw-dropping arrangements and bridal bouquets; plus a field trip to a flower grower, and a party to wrap it all up. Be sure to check out all of the details right here.

Remember Serena and Matthew’s wedding at Haiku Mill…?

The workshop will take place at Maui’s Haiku Mill, February 22 – 24. If you love Ariella‘s work as much as I do, and you want to learn how to create floral designs that look like they grew that way, then don’t miss this chance to learn from the ultimate flower goddess herself. And if you don’t know about Ariella’s work (impossible!), then head over to her website immediately and immerse yourself in all the gorgeousness.
