Anchors Away for the first Ivy Dean Designs Give Away!!!

We all do it - those impulse purchases that you cannot resist, they seem like such a good idea at the time.  This is probably my most impulsive purchase to date (let's forget about the Jimmy Choo shoes bought years ago and never worn).  The idea started as "let's get a little boat to enjoy the river on" - I had in mind something with an engine at least.  Seems my boyfriend had a very different idea...............

This is probably the worst photo ever taken of me, (looking like I have my own built in bouancy aid) and I can't quite believe that I'm going public with it but, dear reader, there is a reason.  To launch (no pun intended) my new range of wire wrapped bracelets I've come up with a little competition.  Simply post a humorous caption to the photo above on this blog with a chance to win one of my new wire wrapped bracelets.   Remember to post which bracelet you'd like to win and the winner with the most amusing caption will be announced here (and on the Folksy forums) on Sunday March 13th.   You can view all of the bracelets on my Folksy shop here  http://www.ivydeandesigns.folksy.com/

I look forward to reading your captions - Good Luck!!!


  1. What a fantastic giveaway and wonderful photo. First things first, I adore this Aqua blue and white bracelet, which is a perfect colour for the summer we all hope may be coming.

    Right, now to the caption(s), hope I am allowed more than one, as a few spring to mind.
    1. Yes this is a canoe in my pocket and yes I am pleased to see you.

    2. Does my bum look big in this?

    3. With global warming, eveolution has caused people living in flood plains to develop inflatable keels, instead of legs, to ensure survival.

    4. When Alice drank the shrinking potion, unfortunatly, one of her blue satin dancing slippers did not shrink with her.

    Right, I'll stop for now, I'm sure there are many more burried in my brain.

  2. Great giveaway and cool photo! Will be interested to see all the comments people come up with.

    Just looked at your new bracelets and I love the Purple Flourite bracelet!

    What comes to mind for me is;

    'Health and safety have gone a little too far this time!'

    and 'When you said you'd take me away for an adventure weekend, I had hoped for a little more excitement than this!'

  3. Hi there, lovely photo, great idea! I love the red, white and blue bracelet and all the others too!

    How about:-

    You are kidding right? Why do I always have to do everything, I only asked for pearls - didn't think you would make me get them myself.

  4. Very good Helen...a lovely photo. Very brave putting yourself up for this.....

    Today the front room...tomorrow Niagra Falls...

    Looked like a Space Hopper on the packet.....

    All of your bracelets are lovely but the afghan Jade really caught my eye.

    Good luck with all the captions..I'll be back to read some more hopefully!!

  5. Brilliant photo!!
    I'm NOT good a captions though, they tend to ramble on and on and go swiftly off subject!
    here goes..

    "I'm sure there was a river here last night..."

    "I said the room is a little 'DINGY' - I only wanted you to open the curtains!"

    I know, very poor...

    Good luck!

  6. I am loving these captions! Here's Jacqui's from http://www.folksy.com/shops/bagsofstyle and http://www.folksy.com/shops/GrandmasKitchen

    Well Folks, I've heard of 'Lady in Red' so this must be the sequel to it 'Lady in Blue'!
    I always dreamed of having a magic carpet to fly me to the ' Land of Inspiration', ah well, I'll have to settle for this Blue Creation to whisk me away to my destination.

    I've got my eye on that absolutely gorgeous
    blue and gold bracelet, although they are all so beautiful.


    Love the photo and your wirework bracelets, particularly the gold wrapped jasper.
