Hey Y'all!... Don't forget to enter my giveaway! ...

Hey y'all!... (that's official Barn Chick lingo!... well, maybe it's the Beverly Hillbillies)...tee hee hee... anyway, just a reminder to be sure to enter my Barn Chicks Party post giveaway!... I have some fun things in store for the day of the party, actually five prizes I am giving away... all you need to do to enter is leave me a comment, on any of the posts including this one, since my giveaway began on July 14th, up to and including my party post...

If you follow my blog (thank you!), then you know I cannot keep a secret, nor am I patient about alot of things... just had to show y'all my "new" vintage white cowgirl boots I got about a month ago... I was going to wait and show them at the party, but, well, here they are!... I will tell you the history behind them at the party... I also wanted to show you my Prairie Gypsy belt buckle made out of all vintage rhinestone jewelry I purchased from Jill at Gypsy Brocante... some time back... if you click to enlarge the photo I think you can see it... she creates the most beautiful one of a kind belt buckles... they are so pretty and feminine!...and look beautiful with jeans or a sundress... Karen, our hostess at Brayton Homestead Interiors said in her post today to "get your boots on"... so I did!... this is too much fun!... I am not sure who is more excited, Karen or Moi!... not only am I excited to show you all of our beautiful local barns, I am sooo excited to see all of the other gorgeous barns across our country that the other "Chicks" will be showing! ... okay... see y'all at the big bash! (now go put YOUR boots on, we've got alot of walkin' to do that day!)... xoxo...

    Now...thank you for your sweet words today. I needed them.

    Love to you, Chica! LOVE THOSE BOOTS!


  13. I want the boots. Nope, make that I need the boots. They wouldn't happen to be a size 8 would they? You definitely rock the boots. Sorry I haven't been around much lately, but I finally have the shop up and running so I can take some time to visit friends. I am getting ready for a give away as well, celebrating my 50th birthday. So please sign me up for your giveaway, and I will keep my fingers crossed, and then come over to mine and enter, I will have it posted tomorrow. I hope that all has been going well for you and that you are enjoying your summer.
