Where has the week gone? Seems only yesterday we were visiting Friday's Fences with Jan & Jer. Mine this week is one of my very favorites. These beautiful horses just strode right up and continued eating as though I was not there. Please visit http://lifeaccordingtojanandjer.blogspot.com and see what fences the other participates have found.

Today would be great if we had some blue, cool water to splash in. That is the furthest thing around here. However, we can still enjoy our visit with Sally at http://smilingsally.blogspot.com. There you will find many "cool" blues.

You never know what will turn up at Coloradolady's vintage show. Mine is a over-sized straight razor. I saw this in an antique store. I am sure it was used for advertising purposes. Back in my young days, all the men used a much smaller version daily. They kept them sharp using an old leather strap.

Susan always has her door open at http://asoutherndaydreamer.blogspot.com to share some great Outdoor Scenes.

As you can tell, I have been taking notice of all fences when driving around. I had to take this out of the car window.

Jillian is the proud owner of Bella Rosa Antiques. She has so many pretty things to share. Take a peek at http://BellaRosaAntiques.blogspot.com
She recently had a giveaway honoring her on line store's 5th Anniversary. One of the rules to enter was to leave a comment and select which item you would prefer if you were the winner.
Since I was not born under a winning star, I seldom enter giveaways anymore. However, looking over all the wonderful things she had to select from, I left a comment. There was a pretty green vintage Swarovski crystal bracelet that represented my birthstone, Peridot. I told her should I be the lucky winner that was my choice.
On Pink Saturday, she announced five winners, but I was not one of them. Curious about the bracelet, I decided to see if one of the winners might have chosen it. Guess what! It had been marked SOLD. I accepted the fact, I lost again.
Last week, I was what you would call being on a roller coaster ride. Lots of ups and downs. Needless to say all that came to a halt when the mail came Saturday. I was very surprised when I received a package from PA. Had no idea who it could be. However, when I opened it, I went into total shock. It was that lovely green, crystal bracelet.
Everybody has different opinions when it comes to comments. They are important to me and enjoyed very much. The only reason I am the proud owner of this bracelet is because a very popular blogger read my comment. She is a very thoughtful, caring, wonderful cook and loved throughout the blog world. It is none other than our own "bj" at Sweet Nothings. She entertains all visitors at http://sweetnothingsbj.blogspot.com.
bj, it is not easy expressing my true feelings at times, but you really touched this senior. That was a really cool way to surprise me. I really like the way you set everything up and made it an awesome time. THANK YOU for thinking of me and taking the time to be so kind.
This is definitely not a good shot of my bracelet. I could not seem to get the light right to capture its true color. I love it and so proud that a dear blogging friend cared.
This is vintage postcard that Jillian included as a bonus surprise.
Thank you so much bj and
