Cute Guinea Pig Jewelry from Momo's Piggery - Giveaway!

You all know I have a soft place in my heart for animals.  Particularly those animals that are searching for their forever homes.  Typically, I think of dogs and cats as winding up in shelters.  But did you know that there are many guinea pigs that need forever homes too?  Guinea pigs can actually be quite interactive and affectionate once they get to know you.  So when I stumbled across Momo's Piggery, which makes adorable jewelry along with other sweet items, I actually contacted her to ask if I could do a review or giveaway.  See, Momo's mission is to encourage adoption instead of buying or breeding.  A portion of all of her proceeds go to the Cavy House Guinea Pig Rescue.  And while she normally sells her items at local fundraisers, she is now trying to reach a larger online audience.  I can't help myself - I'm loving her cause!  And I love her hand creations too.  Momo sent me several pictures of her guinea pigs, and their endearing faces warmed my heart:

Her signature item is named Gupi, and he arrived in my mailbox in the cutest packaging.
She offers free gift wrapping, and each item comes with an adoption certificate.

I can totally see this making some ten year old girl very happy on a birthday...

When I opened the box to see Gupi in there, I was charmed.  Such personality in a tiny little necklace! 
What a unique and special gift these would make, and you could feel good knowing that you're also contributing to a wonderful cause.  Furthermore, if you check out Momo's prices you'll see that not only are they very reasonable, but her shipping and handling is also quite affordable.  Next time I need a birthday gift for a little girl, I know exactly where I can find the perfect creation.

Momo has generously offered to give away to one reader one item of your choice from her store!  She is willing to ship to the US or Canada!  To enter, just click on the "Read More" under my signature.

Disclaimer:  I received one item from Momo's Piggery of my choice.  My opinions and thoughts about Momo's Piggery are all my own.

I love everything on the site - so sweet and for such a wonderful cause. I love animals as well - all of them and think it is so sad there are so many homeless animals looking for that 'forever home'.

I love guinea pigs! My very first pet was a brown guinea pig named Snoopy. Since Snoopy, I've always had one or more guinea pigs. I think they make the most perfect pets too.

I love that necklace. It's absolutely adorable:)

Thank you for raising awareness about guinea pigs. I don't know much about them, so it's a good lesson for me. It makes me want to find out more.

I, too, love animals and hurt for those who need a forever home.

I especially like the taggin necklaces and the love in a bottle pendant.
