Earth Day Tribute to Mother Nature ~ Giveaway ~

Sorry this Giveaway has ended


April 22 marks the 41st anniversary of Earth Day. A movement started by U.S. Senator, Gaylord Nelson of Wisconsin in 1969. His idea was for a "National Environment Teach-In", a day set aside to stimulate awareness of the crisis state of our environment. The following spring, April 22, 1970, was dubbed, the first "Earth Day". A celebration of our Beautiful Mother Earth and the awareness of the environmental impact we all have on our world.


Just think about it....... what we do everyday affects our water, our forests, our air, our land and pretty much, just about everything.


Take action to reduce your footprint on our earth.


Educate yourself


Grow a organic Garden and/or Buy from your local farmers market


Plant a tree


Recycle ~ Reuse ~ Use less


Start a Compost


Be a smart consumer ~ Teach others




Do it for yourself, your children, your grandchildren and for all the generations to come.


Let's keep our world Beautiful! Make everyday Earth Day :)


Inspiring words spoken by so many


"We are not the owners of the land, We are the caretakers for Mother Earth"




~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


~ Earth Day Giveaway ~ In Celebration of Earth Day,


I will be giving away this Wind Chime on April 22 Mother Nature Forest ~ She enters the forest without touching a blade of grass ~




At the top of this chime is a piece of organic brown Salvaged Vintage glass, that I've hand painted with the Kanji symbol for Mother Nature.


The chimes consist of ~ 2 pieces of opaque green glass and a piece of clear glass textured with fern leaves, which I've hand painted the words: ~ She enters the forest without touching a blade of grass ~ It's fun to see if someone can answer the riddle of "who she is?".


At the bottom are organic looking amber, black and tan glass beads. The chimes are strung together using different shapes, sizes of amber, black and tan glass beadsA ring is created at the top & ready for you to enjoy in your home or garden




All you need to do is simply:


#1 ~ Visit my gardens in my etsy shop. See if there is something you like, then post the name of the piece here. Thank you for stopping by!




For extra chances to win ~ Please ~ include in the *same post altogether* that you are,


#2 ~ A Follower of my blog






Open to US & Canada ~ First Class Shipping included.


The contest ends midnight April 21The Winner will be chosen at random on April 22 and will be contacted and announced here on my blog.




Good Luck to all!


Julie

  81. As you can see by the number of your marvelous creations I (Salleefur) have Etsy "hearted" - it would be impossible for me to choose just one favorite. But among my most favorite favorites are your Moonbeams Mobile, Elegance & Glass and "My Tribute to Mary" Wind Chimes.
