Prismatic Blue...

a couple little things you should know about me...

i never win anything in my life...

except the time i won a bottle of sunkist pop from payless shoe source when i was about 8 years old...

i know...how in the world was i so lucky!?!?...

but guess what...i had to share...with my older brother...sigh...

no it didn't taste sweeter because of it...

sharing + sweeter feeling/taste...didn't happen...

i guess that is not quite so bad as when my mom won a can of coffee as a young child...

she didn't get to share...and experience that feel good sweeter sensation that everyone said would happen...which didn't...

nope...

she had to give it back!?!?....yep...

can you see where i get my luck from....

anyways...

i am posting here today to let you all know i am breaking the not so lucky streak in my family...

because this arrived in my mailbox today...



Photobucket

i know...swoon...

not only is the necklace absolutely amazing...but that tin is..oh.my.divine.

Melinda the Designer and Owner of Alabaster Rose Designs was hosting a giveaway on her blog...

which i won...

happy happy joy joy...



Photobucket

another little thing about me...

i'm a cowgirl...

yep...

born and raised in the saddle...



Photobucket

this necklace fits me to a t and it even has the year of my birth..

...1904...

it's all about the prairie air ladies...

yep...

no need for that fountain of youth...

just join me on the prairie...



Melinda's designs are exactly what this prairie girl was looking for in jewelry...

vintage inspired with a little prairie thrown in the mix...

so guess what...

Faded Prairie will be carrying Alabaster Rose Designs starting this spring...

*thank you* to melinda, you are too sweet and i can't wait to work with you!!

Could you rub some of your good luck on to you little sis! I have got to have one of those necklaces! Does she have one that says princess? (I don't think cowgirl fits me.) Yes, I am the baby of this family!

I am so happy for you that you won! I am like you and never win anything. That's okay,though, maybe I am waiting for something really BIG to win!!

Hey girl!
I was looking at the Barn Boys blog/marketplace just now, and came across this... www.barnhousemarket.mybisi.com/product/soldered-frame-bull4-sp

It made me think of you. They have several styles.
