Such a FUN contest! Merci!

Sherri Cassara said...

Hi Karena,
I am your follower and of Zhush.
If I could have anything? I'd pick the Suzani design round cloisonne boxes! But at $525 that is probably not going to happen. I did purchase her little square # boxes (one #2 and one #1) for my daughter's 21st birthday. I put a little ring in one and a shamrock in the other (the shamrock as a symbol for a trip to Ireland).
I love EVERYTHING Zhush!

Christa Nicole said...
