    Although I would love to keep that gorgeous necklace for myself, I believe it will do some real good as an Auction gift for a Charity that I assist- THe Summit Speech School! THe women will love it and the story behind it! That would be a great gift!
    Thank you,

    would be sorely tempted to keep it for myself but it would make a perfect xmas present for my sister!

  7. Karen December 3, 2012 | 3:40 pm

    Love this… I would like to keep it for myself. Definitely my style! 🙂

  8. briannelee December 3, 2012 | 3:47 pm

    I should be generous and say that I would give this as a gift, but I will probably be selfish and keep it for myself 🙂


  9. Caroline Sluys December 3, 2012 | 3:52 pm

    Beautiful necklace! I think I would have to keep this one for myself!

    I’ve “liked” Ex Voto forever…absolutely lovely things. Thank you for this wonderful giveaway.

    If I won, it would be a wonderful surprise for my best friend. It’s wonderful to have someone who gives you her undivided attention when you talk and appreciates it when you reciprocate. And this is right up her alley!

  15. eshanks December 3, 2012 | 5:51 pm

    I think my mother would love this necklace, as she has had a lot of loss this year. Definitely a gift!

  16. Global Atelier December 3, 2012 | 7:46 pm

    Beautiful necklace – great for the holidays!

  17. Henhurst Interiors December 3, 2012 | 8:02 pm

    I’d be giving it to my daughter – who I cannot believe is turning 16 tomorrow!!! – sorry, just struggling to understand how we got her so fast – anyway, she is a great and deserving kid who loves vintage. I am headed to their website right now for a back-up.

  18. Caroline December 3, 2012 | 8:19 pm

    Love! Too pretty not to keep!

  19. Grace December 3, 2012 | 8:20 pm

    This would be a must for my mother! She has been helping nonstop with my business venture called WritefullyHis (www.writefullyhis.com). I couldn’t imagine giving it to anyone else!

  20. Jessie Nethercott December 3, 2012 | 9:29 pm

    I love this necklace! I would be thrilled to keep it for myself, but I have been searching for the perfect Christmas present for my sister and I think that this is it!

  21. nora December 3, 2012 | 9:50 pm

    Love the Minny Necklace with Laurel Locket giveaway on Habitually Chic. I have a new son. If I were to win this lovely piece, I would put his picture in it. I am back at work, and he’s changing by the day, so it would be a nice reminder of little Max, not to mention a great additon to my back-to-work wardrobe!

  22. Freja December 3, 2012 | 11:01 pm

    I’d give this to my sister-in-law as a Christmas gift.
    I’ve liked on Facebook 🙂

  23. Barb December 3, 2012 | 11:22 pm

    I would definitely keep and put in a picture of my sweet kitties.

  24. JWF December 4, 2012 | 12:08 am

    I have “liked” on Facebook, and I would be un-Santa like and keep it for myself! 🙂

  25. ashley e December 4, 2012 | 12:35 am

    Honestly, I would keep it for myself! I’ve been looking for good quality lockets, and this definitely makes the cut! Thank you!

  26. Petra Tamme December 4, 2012 | 2:36 am

    LOVE this necklace. I couldn’t bear to give it away so it would be a gift to ME! Thank you for this opportunity, Heather. Much appreciated.

  27. AmyHN December 4, 2012 | 2:40 am

    I have wanted a pretty locket with my children’s pics for years so, KEEP IT!

  28. RAS December 4, 2012 | 2:51 am

    As I am 99% finished with my Christmas shopping…highly unusual for me:-) … I would love to keep this for myself! Thanks for the contest and great blog.

  29. evaleri December 4, 2012 | 10:22 am

    Naturally, I believe the necklace would make a beautiful gift to any one of the strong women I know. But the truth is, I’ll probably keep it for myself and where it as a constant reminder of inner strength. Happy holidays!

  30. pve design December 4, 2012 | 10:29 am

    I would give it to a friend who lost her dog, inside I would have a small image of her dog Oscar. Yes, I liked on facebook. I also did not e-mail you.
    thanks for the holiday give-away.

  31. bb December 4, 2012 | 10:49 am

    This would be for my daughter who would just love it. And she’d also love it that I found it on your blog!

  32. dmod December 4, 2012 | 10:52 am

    This is a gorgeous piece. It reminds me of a necklace my grandmother used to wear in Romania. I would definitely keep it.

  33. rebecca @ beurrista December 4, 2012 | 11:15 am

    what a beautiful necklace… I would have to keep it for myself.

  34. penny December 4, 2012 | 11:34 am

    This is like love at first sight!!! I would keep this one for our family. I ‘ve got 2 beautiful teenager, hope can share this beautiful necklace with them.

  35. Lisa Tatsuko December 4, 2012 | 12:28 pm

    I’m torn… At first I thought to give it to my daughter, but then wonder whether it would be more appreciated handed down from me, so she could continue the tradition. Either way, I’d like to give it to my daughter – as it looks like a beautiful, meaningful gesture.

  36. Cecily December 4, 2012 | 1:02 pm

    I will give this beautiful necklace to my husband to wrap up for me for Christmas! He cannot shop and this necklace would be a perfect way for him to put something under the tree that is a wonderful gift for me to open. I hope I win! Great give-away!

  37. Sandy December 4, 2012 | 1:18 pm

    Love the necklace and its connection to Minnie and “The Help”. I’m a bit challenged on who would get to enjoy it. I have a very special mother in her twilight years, two grown daughters and I can’t resist throwing my name in the hat. Perhaps it should start with the first generation and be passed down. Lovely.

  38. eleisa December 4, 2012 | 1:43 pm


    and for sure
    it’s for ME !

    of course if my daughter wants to borrow I might consider xo

  39. KdStyleandGrace December 4, 2012 | 1:51 pm

    I would give this as a gift to a friend who can use some beauty in her life…

  40. bhicks December 4, 2012 | 2:15 pm

    Lovely, keep for me but definitely share!

  41. Darcy December 4, 2012 | 2:17 pm

    I would so be keeping this… under the tree it would go from the hubs! 🙂

  42. Whitney December 4, 2012 | 2:21 pm

    Love the locket! I would wrap it and put under the tree for me to open on Christmas Day! It would also make a great Christmas Gift which is 4 days before Christmas.

  43. Jeane December 4, 2012 | 2:24 pm

    I would have to keep it for myself honestly I would….love love love your blog, it’s one of my favorites!

  44. Jeni December 4, 2012 | 3:03 pm

    I love to wear special pieces like this, create a memory and then when someone comments they love the necklace I usually take it off and give it to them!

  45. Gail Storti December 4, 2012 | 3:22 pm

    What a beautiful necklace! I would definitely keep it for myself and wear it with a wonderful memory of winning it from one of my favorite bloggers!

  46. Heather R December 4, 2012 | 3:31 pm

    Such a beautiful necklace! It would be hard to gift it, so I’d probably keep it for myself.

  47. Shelby Pigg December 4, 2012 | 3:33 pm

    So pretty! Love this necklace!

  48. Tracy Hoffman December 4, 2012 | 3:41 pm

    I would gift it as a gift, it’s Christmas time after all!

  53. virginia December 4, 2012 | 4:50 pm

    I think I would have to give it as a gift.

  54. Misty Mote December 4, 2012 | 5:34 pm

    I can’t help being a little greedy with this one. Would have to keep it for myself!

  55. Brittany December 4, 2012 | 6:24 pm

    I love this so much for myself, but its too perfect for my friend Erin not to give it to her for Christmas. She would love it, and wear it often I think!


  56. Airplane Food Critic December 4, 2012 | 6:40 pm

    I liked it on FB and am now leaving a comment. I would definitely keep this locket for myself. They say people give the gifts that they actually want for themselves and I have given so many lockets as gifts I have lost count. It is time for me to have one!

    Love it.

  57. mamavalveeta03 December 4, 2012 | 7:10 pm

    Sorry my dear daughters, but I’d keep this one for myself!
