  1. This is too funny! I was just putting on a pair of earrings and wishing I had a pair of "Julia Originals" to wear! lol! Here's my chance to win some!

    I would want the earrings to be pink.
    I do have pierced ears.
    I prefer silver.
    I like my earrings about medium length. Not to long, not to short. I like them to come right about to my jaw line. And I like fancy and fun earrings that are simple. Does that make any sense? lol! It's pretty similar to what you already have in your store. :)
    And I will go and put your blog button in my sidebar now! :)


  2. Hi Julia! I'd love to win a pair of your beautiful earrings!

    1. I wear green and purple a lot!
    2. I have pierced ears
    3. I think I like silver better!
    4. I LOVE long and fancy earrings! And if I win, I would like them to NOT have BIG BIG beads on them. I do like my earrings to be full though.
    5. And with the blog button, I have a photoblog layout, so I can't have any sidebar things. Would it be possible for me just to post about this giveaway and add your button there? I would hate to not be entered because of my layout :( Thanks!

  22. Hi, I'm new to your blog!
    Here's the redone comment ;)

    1. My favourite colour is purple, but I also like tropical blue.
    2. My ears are pierced.
    3. I prefer silver
    4. I like smallish earrings - not big/long dangly ones! :)

    Umm....I tried putting your blog button on my blog, but it came up as a link instead of the actual button. Is that OK?

    Anyway, thanks for letting me enter, even though I'm on the other side of the world!

  23. I tried to put the button on my blog, but it didn't exactly show up. It's just words. Does that still count? If it does, then I would like them to be pink. I don't have pierced ears, so I would need clip-ons. I would rather have silver. I would like them to be shortish. I am going to past about it right now. Here is my link:
