I was excited to find that one of my favorite blogs:
was hosting a giveaway for bottlecap necklaces from:

Allison had an adorable blue bicycle necklace. And lucky me, I actually WON the giveaway!

I thought the blue bike necklace would double as a perfect something blue, stitched into the hem of my dress alongside an embroidered wedding date.

Since I could choose two necklaces, I chose the blue bike for myself & had a friend pick out another one for herself. She chose a sweet Red Bird.
