RHINESTONE COWGIRL CRACKERJACK GIVEAWAY...


To commemorate not only my 102nd blog post (when I didn't think I'd last much past 10), AND February 19, 1913, which was the first time a prize was inserted into a box of Crackerjacks...welcome to the RHINESTONE COWGIRL CRACKERJACK GIVEAWAY (so named, just because)!

Prize up for grabs is Belle, a "Rhinestone Cowgirl" necklace (the rest of the line can be found at Bead and Needle).  Hand crafted from a vintage, faceted chandelier crystal (1-1/2" in length); a beautiful vintage cowgirl image and the name Belle show through from behind.  Backed with red Ultrasuede, and rimmed with tiny rhinestone chain.  On the front is a small, gold, vintage horseshoe button (open end up, so the luck stays in), with a four leaf clover and rhinestone in the center.  Hand formed wire links, mingled with vibrant red and pale aqua Czech fire polish glass beads; a large vintage rhinestone button (and a tiny newer one); and one more round chandelier crystal for good measure; mingled in with brass tone chain.
Drop on chain (lobster claw clasp at back) is approx. 12-1/2", for a total length, including Belle, of 14".  Fabulous for special occasions or those everyday jeans - channel your inner cowgirl.

Entry is easy...either drop me a line under COMMENTS, or add yourself under FOLLOWERS.  Winner will be randomly selected on FEBRUARY 19TH, as I'm eating Crackerjacks.  Hope your week is wonderful - Tanya

I guess I should have bought boots at the boot barn!

Does it count that every Friday night in Del Rio I used to kick out the cotton eyed Joe with the best of them? : D

Oh, how I love Crackerjacks. They are a childhood memory. Mom would buy them, three boxes bundled together for her three kids. It was such a treat. I couldn't wait to see what prize was in there!
Now, I have a craving, thanks alot!!!

Ohhhh.... I am just decadent enough to wear that with my good jammies! How pretty is that? I mean the necklace, not my good jammies. I love it!

You would think that Yvonne would just gift me the chairs since she is such a nice person wouldn't you? I may have to perform some black ops though.

Thanks for visiting! Love your blog! I am number 50 on your followers! I love being an even number!

Congrats on the 100+ Posts... isn't this Blogging thang so much FUN! My Grandson helped me set mine up and dragged me kicking and screaming into the 21st Century..., he told me I wasn't "marketing" myself well enough *LOL*... where does a 9 year old learn such profound stuff I'm wondering??!?!?!?! He was right though... now I have a waiting list for my bags and these slow old hands to try to fulfill! *success is a double edged sword, no? wink* May you enjoy many more hundreds of Posts...
