Win a “Truly Blessed” Necklace from Kate Austin Jewelry!


Editor’s Note: We’ll choose a winner at random today (Friday, May 8) at 2 p.m. Good luck and happy, happy Mother’s Day.

When I spotted this “Truly Blessed” necklace on the Kate Austin Jewelry website, I fell in love with it. I stopped by the Kate Austin shop just to visit it in person. If this simple, beautiful necklace doesn’t capture the essence of motherhood, I don’t know what does. So I put it on my “wish list” immediately. And I was really happy when owner Claire Branscum called me later to say she would okateaustinlogoandnumber.jpgffer this piece as a Mother’s Day giveaway for one lucky Motherlode reader. (Thanks, Claire!)

The “Truly Blessed” necklace is made by designer Karibou and retails for $60. It is sterling silver and the two dainty tags bearing the “truly blessed” sentiment hang on a 16-inch chain with an extender. I’ve seen it in person, ladies, and I can tell you that it would be a special addition to any mom’s accessory collection. It’s great for dressing up or for everyday wear when you’re chasing little “blessings” around the house.

  2. I am confronted with many people that think that because I have three boys that I am pitied or need prayer…I do need prayer, but I feel very blessed for my boys. I can’t imagine my life any different. I would love to have a girl but a forth boy would be great as well. I am truly blessed
