You saw me wearing it here... it's pinkpoppyseed!

This delightful ETSY shop is filled with upcycled t-shirts and vintage fabric, stripped into a yarn to make soft, statement jewelry. The orange necklace is currently featured in Babiekins Magazine, and after wearing it all day at the shoot, I was begging to take it home. I was so excited to later discover the online shop that is full of bold colored, beautifully braided, handmade pretties! The t-shirt necklaces are hands-down my favorite...

I also own one of her bracelets...
...the vintage floral on the right. ;)

Katie Jo is the creator behind the beautiful shop, here she is...

Hi, I’m Katie Jo, owner and creative designer behind Pinkpoppyseed which is full of all things handmade and upcycled! I love creating and repurposing things with my own hands. My sister introduced me to Etsy and I fell in love with it! So I decided to open my own store - Pinkpoppyseed! I was really nervous thinking “What if no one likes what I make?!” But I was pleasantly surprised at how friendly and supportive everyone was! I have had so much fun meeting all of the amazing people who are part of the Esty world! One of my most memorable meetings on Etsy was from Heather at Babiekins Magazine - asking if I would like to participate in their Spring 2012 magazine!!! I was so excited I told everyone I knew! Heather and everyone at Babiekins were a dream to work with ..... and it ended up being a double blessing as I was introduced to the super sweet model that wore my necklace during the magazine shoot, Katrina!

Um, let's just replace model with mom blogger, haa! Thanks Katie! Like me, she is also a mama to two boys. And I love that she has created such a girlie shop, you know, to balance the everyday life with all boys. :)

And now for the giveaway, Katie Jo has generously offered this
perfectly spring, pale pink t-shirt necklace to go to one of you!
