Necklace Contest - Last of November

This week's necklace image is of some friends at a train station waiting...on something - someone - or nothing. You come up with a saying for the back side of this image and enter it here... On Friday a winner will be chosen and awarded with a soldered glass pendant on a 24" ball chain. There are complete 'rules' posted on the sidebar if you would like something else to read.
Meanwhile....this is the image I contemplated using this week, but the whole chains, leather straps and praying theme just seemed wrong. So - consider it a bonus pendant! If you have something that would be perfect for the backside of this image - enter it and we'll have two winners this week!

My First Shadow Pic

I love going over to Hey Harrietts blog and looking at the Shadow Shot Sunday pics. While in Florida, my sister noticed this great shot of us three sisters and one niece while standing on the Naples Pier.

Naughty & Nice

I'm not sure how I lost track of what day it was yesterday...totally forgot it was Friday and that I should have posted the winner... I guess the whole Black FRIDAY thing didn't sink in... anyway -Congratulations to Mama K for her winning entry of "Just a tiny bit naughty". You win!! Send me your mailing address and I'll send you your necklace.
Speaking of NAUGHTY. Scootch is.
The other day I caught her with a cigarette and a Scotch bottle.
AND I'm pretty sure she's the one that started this fire down by the pond.
She is Naughty (with a capital N)

Come on...

I'm trying to get some work done in my studio, and these two keep using their puppy dog eyes to try to get in....they win.

2nd Edition - Volume 1

I know, I's been done a million times. Plop a crown on a birds head and make him pose, but I still love it! So - this week's contest picture is this lovely bird with a crown on his head. (the crown will be quite sparkly by the time this is turned into a pendant)

Now it's your turn - submit a saying, phrase, word, etc that you think would be perfect for the back side of this image. A winner will be chosen on THURSDAY instead of Friday this week and awarded with a pendant on a chain. Complete rules are posted >>>

Can you believe it's Year Two - Week One of this contest??? Me either...

Speaking of contests....

There is zee most fabulous one going on over at Bliss Farm Antiques:

Jackie is shopping in ...:::PARIS:::... and when she gets back is having a give-a-way. All you have to do to enter is make a comment. That's what we're here for, right? So go make a comment and while you're there enjoy all the eye candy from her shop. When she gets back, she'll be giving away a present from Paris! It's the next best thing to going yourself.
