a wild west extravaganza & a Winner!

Howdy Y'all!!!!
Since all things in my life right now are pointing towards TEXAS & Round Top & meeting my bloggie buddies & shopping like a fool & going to a prom & driving like a CRAZY person, alone, from California...
I thought this Give-Away should have a western theme!
So Round-Up your little doggies or whatever it is they round up in Texas, get out your pistols, put on a petticoat, hold on to your hat & let's get this party started!!!

In honor of this special occasion I've asked my friend & fellow Wild Child, Annie Oakley, to say a few words. Now, I don't know if any of you were in LOVE with the HBO series 'Deadwood', but I was & if that's really how Annie talks...I think we'll keep this PG & just wonder at her amazing 'Peerless Lady Wing-Shot'.
As she goes through some of her sharp shooting techniques the audience is enthralled, though silently praying she doesn't have to sneeze.

Another great friend of mine here to CELEBRATE, is Darlin' Dinah. She's a hard workin woman who works 2 jobs to keep herself in bullets. By day she's a daring gunslinger, but when that sun sinks slowly in the west, she's off to the 'Red Lamp District' where she sinks into a feather bed & rests her weary feet. {ps: her jewelry was designed by the junk gypsy's, sooo coooool}

I've done heard it said, that a man's best friend is his dog? Well, as you can see, a women's best friend is obviously her gun & her horse!

These gals came by especially to find out who the 'WINNER' is of my 300 Friends 'Wild West Show Extravaganza' & sadly to say...they meant business!
The gal on the right is wearin, my lamb from 'Lambs & Ivy Boutique' & the one on the left told me I'd better give her the prize cuz "she was Joni on Happy Days"!
Geez...the things a person has to go through to give away a prize. Those fools, don't they know I only do these things Fair & Square?
Enough Ladies...let's get to the GOOD STUFF!!
Drum roll please.
The much anticipated winner of my
300 Friends
Wild West Show
Extravaganza is...

Carol Anne of Carol Anne's Boutique, Congratulations Friend!!!!
As the crowd starts hootin' & hollerin' & shootin' off rounds into the air, some swearin' can be heard in the background from the gals who DIDN'T win vintagesusie's big prize. Joni's pissed! Since vintagesusie knows how to handle disgruntled women, she yells out into the crowd "whiskey shots on me"!
Enthusiastically the women all run over to the local bar to get drunk & brawl. Susie on the other hand, quietly climbs onto her appaloosa 'Mirage' & rides slowly in the opposite direction towards the setting sun & Round Top!
{oh yeah, that's a pic of my hubby tryin to lasso me back home, fearful of what kind of trouble this ole, crazy gal might get herself into in Texas without a man...sorry honey, I love ya...but a bloggy girl's gotta do, what a bloggy girl's got to do!}

Happy Trails Gals...

Give-Away in 3 days???

OK, can somebody tell me where time goes when it fly's???
Cuz I can't believe we're already 3 days away from my 300th Friend Give-away & I didn't even have a chance to have my Sneak Peek or remind everyone who hasn't had a chance to enter, to Enter, or go on & on about all the bloggie buddy love that's going to be in the winners box when it arrives! What's a CRAZED BLOGGER to do?

So why am I a little more CRAZY then usual you may ask? {or maybe you didn't ask, but I'm going to tell you anyway}

My Grandson Kai has started kindergarten this week & it's been CRAZY around here. Last minute shopping trips to Target & Payless for the usual Back to School supplies, kindergarten orientation, {orientation??? when I was in kindergarten they just threw you out of the station wagon & said "be good & listen to your teacher..I'm pretty sure that was the extent of my "orientation"} And today is his 1st day of after-school care at a portable at his school run by the Parks & Rec. Will he make it there OK??? Will he know he's suppose to go with that teacher?? Will he sit alone waiting for Mommy or Monga to pick him up & we won't be there? Will something horrible happen? OMG, I watch WAYYYYY to much Nancy Grace!

Enough of that silliness! I just want you to know that I am so excited about this Give-away & can't wait for 1 of my friends to win something wonderful, hand-made with love & heartfelt from me to you, because as far as I'm are all just
Sooooo Awesome!
Thanks for being my friend!
