I won another giveaway! Wowahh?!

Hi there!
So again, on a whim, I entered a giveaway a month or so back.
The lovely Rache at her blog Beautiful Rache held this giveaway and I thought it was such a unique giveaway as most people tend to give away make up products or similar things.
The item in the giveaway was a beautiful hand made knitted necklace from the Etsy shop Plexida. Valsiliki from Greece is the owner of the Etsy shop and the knitted items on there are soo beautiful and unique, I just love them so much.
If you won the giveaway you were able to chose a colour of bow to have on your necklace and there is a tonne of beautiful colours to chose from.
I was sooo thrilled to find out I had won the giveaway and Rache was so lovely when she emailed me about it. I was asked to chose the colour I wanted and after having a serious debate with myself on the Etsy shop over which colour I preferred (seriously they are all so pretty it took me a good half an hour to decide!) I chose the light purplish grey colour (that is how it is described on the shop) I thought that it was a really versatile colour as it would go with a span of different colours.

I thought it would be really cool to show you the package that my prize came in as coming from Greece the stamps were so cool! In the UK the stamps are usually kind of boring, as much as I love the Queen I really think these picture stamps are so cute.

I also loved how cutely packaged the prize came in. Crisp brown paper and a cute bow made with blue wool. This really reminds me of how packages were sent in war time England and reminds me of Narnia for some reason? ahahaha?

Now on to the beautiful necklace!
How gorgeous is this?! It looks so well made and the colour is even more beautiful than I expected. I love the dusty nude purple colouring and how I can tell just how good quality the wool used to make it is.

You can see how thick the wool is, so I can imagine it took a good amount of time and a whole lot of effort to make. I always think there is something so unique and beautiful about hand made things that makes them that much more special. 

I decided to crop off my face as I was in the process of getting ready for college and well no one wants to see my lovely blotchy spotty face ;)
I love how the necklace looks on and I think it really adds to any outfit, and the chain is the perfect length. It looks slightly longer than it is in this photo as I am bending forward slightly.

I really cannot express how much I love this necklace and I am so glad that I entered the giveaway. I love how unique this giveaway was and I think that I am going to do a similar style of giveaway if I ever reach 100 followers. I just love the thought of being able to support a business that really needs the money rather than a big money making brand.

I am so thankful to Rache for holding the giveaway and Vasiliki for the beautiful necklace. You should all really go and check out both Raches blog here and Vasiliki's Etsy shop here as you will not be disappointed.

Thanks for reading :)
