Novica: A World Art Giveaway

Sometimes I wonder if I should have named my blog Shopping Mommy. I love to shop for beautiful things for my girls, my home, my family and my friends, so when I was asked if I would like to host a review and giveaway for Novica? I jumped at the chance!

If you haven't heard of Novica you may be scratching your head wondering what it is. Novica, in association with National Geographic, is an online website that gives artists and artisans from around the world a place where they can market and sell their handmade items.

The items are breathtaking. I spent well over an hour the other trying to decide what to get for myself...there are so many gorgeous items and I want to take a minute to show a few of my favorites to you. First up is an item from their home decor store. They have so many options in this category, it was hard to pick just one to highlight! But this is on my wishlist:


I also love their silver jewelry to include this earring set:


And this set of gorgeous earrings:


My final item to highlight is another piece from their sterling silver jewelry. I am in love with their large showcase of necklaces. My favorite one is this:



***Win it***
