Rhinestone Cowgirl

Well...who'd a thought it! This time last year I had no idea what a blog was. After a year of research and hard work I opened my on line boutique in March. Then I was told by one of my very first customers that I needed to start a blog. Then another customer told me how having a blog would maybe draw people to my website too. So that was how I came to start my blog. I have to tell you I felt silly writing that first post and wondered who in the world would want to read what I have to say. Then I let it slide until July when I joined a wonderful group of boutique sellers as a Little Pink Plaza member at a very special website called Make Mine Pink. If you have never visited MMP you simply must. Each and every one of the boutiques have something unique and wonderful for you. They helped me with my blog and I have been yakking ever since. I have met some of the most delightful people thru blogging all so special in their own unique way.

So....in honor of my 100th post I would like to do a give-away. I have been thinking long and hard the last couple of weeks about what to give away. Wellllllll.....how about a little denim and a little bit of rhinestone? Sounded good to me. So I made this tote just for you. It's made from a designer weight denim with embroidered cowgirl boots and hats on it. The inside I lined with a fun retro fabric and it has a nice roomy pocket big enough for your cell phone and glasses. (oh....you don't need glasses you say, lucky you. :) The pocket is made from the denim and I even fringed it. But the best part of this tote is the closure. A really cool vintage rhinestone horseshoe brooch. That's Miss Lacey posing with the tote. She's my neighbor.....a pretty little filly and just as sweet as can be. She really liked the tote.

Just leave a comment on this post which I will run for a week and I will throw your name into my well worn cowgirl hat. Run a little line about it on your blog and I'll throw your name in the hat twice. Winner will be announced on Feb. 5th. Enjoy your week and happy blogging. xoxo Lynn

That is awesome, Lynn! Isn't it amazing how far we girls have come? I scarcely knew what a blog was last year myself. I certainly didn't visit them and NEVER wanted to start one myself! I guess you should never say never! SO glad I started mine! And so glad you did too!

Thanks for inviting me to your giveaway, congratulations!

I was actually stopping by to say "hello" have not been by in a while..had been a part of the make mine pink virtual tea party back before Christmas..and met a few of you gals through that event.
Wanted to catch up a bit and also to invite you over to my little website at:

This website is an e-zine that my husband and I create every other month that you might enjoy..it is geared towards "Small Town Living" but generally has articles that even those in the "big cities" might enjoy.
Feel free to take a look and share with others if you'd like.
