Deuce Cities Henhouse

Yeah guys!

I’m super excited to share a new giveaway with you. You know I haven’t done many of these but I am SO amped about this because

    A.) This jewelry is awesome
    B.) This stuff is made in the M P L S
    C.) It makes me happy.

Let me introduce to you Leisure Class, a Minneapolis based jewelry shop that makes its home on Etsy. At the Leisure Class shop you can find wonderfully unique beaded bracelets and necklaces. All Leisure Class jewelry feature bright colored beads, strung on leather or beautiful vibrant thread mashed up and accented with larger wooden, polymer, ceramic, faceted and hand painted beads. Combining bright colors and cool textures results in a totally fun and playful one-of-a-kind piece, (and something I would love to wear).

Annie Yiling Wang is the brains behind Leisure Class. She makes her living as an art director and designer at Target’s inHouse design studio. While her day job is graphic designer/art director and now jewelry maker it didn’t initially start out that way. She’s originally from Los Angeles, but moved to the Twin Cities (aka Deuce Cities) in 2008 to get her second degree in graphic design at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design (represent!). She’s began making jewelry recently as an extension of her creative work.

Annie see’s each piece as is its own miniature collage and I find this a perfect way to describe her jewelry.

The Leisure Class bracelet that Annie is putting up for grabs is made of greek ceramic beads, lava rock, faceted rose beads, and a mixmash of other smaller beads strung on red silk thread. (Don’t ya love it?)
It fits a medium sized wrist, the total length being 6.5″.

    Awesome bracelet! Over the Fourth of July we went swimming in Lake Nokomis (kind of gross and refreshing at the same time) and wrangled our 1 1/2 year old nephew. Totally an adventure! Oh, and we went to a B & B in Red Wing on Saturday…it was an old Victorian house that Karl thought was “outdated.” Um, it’s supposed to look old! :)

    This weekend we went to a rockin’ 3rd birthday. A huge blow-up adult-sized water slide with double dolphins at the top! (were the adults having more fun, hell yes!) Lots of bubbles, squirt guns, and an enormous trampoline. This party was epic, perfect for a rock star 3 year old!

    I took my little babe to a outside rock show on Fourth of July afternoon. I got some weird looks from the other show-attendees who probably thought I was a bad mom for bringing him out to a show but he was LOVED it and was totally happy and dancing with his big headphones on. He’s got a great “get down low” booty dance he does. I have no idea where he learned it.

    On the way home, we got caught in a HUGE hailstorm (it was crazy!!) and had to stay in the van in our driveway until the hail let up before we made a run for it. We spent the evening drinking brews in the garage watching fireworks after the baby went to sleep. All in all, a fun day!

    I just got back from the most awesome 4 days at the lake. I went to my family’s annual 4th of July pot luck, spent hours on a boat and in a lake with friends and cousins, went to a rodeo, went to a rodeo dance, bruised my leg riding a mechanical bull, stayed up late a lot, slept in a tent in a thunderstorm, discovered a new townie bar, sat at several bon fires, roasted marshmellows, got a little tan and a little burned. I do roughly the same thing every year, but it is always a little different, a new friend joins us, people bring new dates, we change up the routine in some way that turns out to be totally fun–it is always an adventure and one of my favorite weekends of the year! P.s. I love that bracelet. :)

    I went home to South Dakota and made a belated birthday feast for my mom for the 4th of July – crab cakes, filet mignon, grilled veggies, warm potato salad with goat cheese and fruit salad. Dessert was a belated Father’s Day treat chosen by my dad- Turtle Cake! (recipe- http://www.midwestliving.com/recipe/chocolate-cakes/cafe-lattes-turtle-cake/ ) After, we shot off a ton of fireworks with our nephew – snakes, sparklers, smoke bombs, fountains, artillery shells, bottle rockets, roman candles – you name it, we lit it up!
