11 Days until Christmas and a lot of bling, baby.{closed}

Hello friends! First off, I guess we should announce the winner from yesterday's Bloom giveaway....

CONGRATS TO STEPHANIE WILLIAMS!! please email me (or call me, you've got my digits) and I can either deliver your gift to you or mail it, your choice. Yay Steph!!!!!

I also want to add a little not about the giveaways, just so we're clear on something.....

I want the 12 Days of Christmas Giveaway to be about supporting local businesses in my area. By giving away fun and unique gifts from shops I love, my goal is just to show you some of the amazing things these stores carry and to show you exactly where I like to shop.

If you like and "follow" my blog, then that's great! Just remember that the real reason I'm doing this giveaway is for you guys :) awwww! (Que Barry Manilow or some other sappy love music)

Does this sound ok to ya'll? Have any questions just email me.

Now, onward and upward to today's lovely gift!

Today's gift comes from a magical place, Annie Laurie's Antiques.

Laurie Everett, owner of Annie Laurie's Antiques sitting outside her shop.
 This is not your grandmother's antique store, (although, my Nana loves Annie Lauries because she's super hip!) Annie Laurie's Antiques is full of unique, one of a kind vintage treasures that shoppers of all ages can love and appreciate. Every time I step into the store I'm greeted with a smile, a warm cup of coffee and sincere happiness. I know this might sound sappy (I'm in a sappy mood people, bare with me!) but when I shop, I want to feel that warm fuzzy feeling that I've found something amazing. I kid you not, every time I leave this store I bring home something special that I treasure. From vintage Dooney and Bourke purses to quirky wall art, Annie Laurie's Antiques has something for everyone. I know not all of you can make it to Cape G and visit Laurie, but just know she is one of the most honest and caring business professionals I have ever met. Laurie and her entire staff sincerely care about me, not how much I buy or if I buy anything at all. That, my friends, is why Annie Laurie's Antiques is my favorite place to shop. Of all time. Mark that on the record books, please.

Today's giveaway is this gorgeous set of three quirky, fun necklaces and an intricately beaded vintage clutch.

Mr. Mummy Head is solid, my friends. He's heavy so easy on the head bangin' while you're wearing him.

My favorite piece is probably the little square locket. Perfectly simple, great for little pictures! I love the floral statement necklace paired with it.

Jacket: Macy's, last year. Sparkly Tee: Talbots. Black Jeggings: JCP. Booties: Old Navy.
 This is my actual outfit for today. I'm wearing all three of the necklaces before I give to you hehe! John is having his Christmas party at school, so I thought I should bust out the sparkly top. Bamsies!

I tried this outfit with a belt first, but just wasn't feeling it. I had to show you the picture though, because my little pup poked her head through the fence :) such a sweetie!

To win today's necklace's and clutch, head on over to Annie Laurie's Facebook Page and "Like" them if you haven't already. Write on their wall and tell them Life Told By Leslie sent you! I'll announce the winner tomorrow! Good luck ladies, happy Thursday! xoxo
