Another Long Overdue THANKS!!! ♥♥♥

Once again I am begging forgiveness at my inherent slothdom at getting thank you's out and properly posted to the blog. I have no good excuse---life has gone completely crazy and my personal drive down that road was a short one!
A while back on one of the She Who Blogs site, the daytrippers were having a cool contest to pick a favorite New York City photo and also think of a new tagline for the blog.
Well, I had not checked back in and sure enough....guess who won this cool sterling necklace but moi.


All packaged lovely and brightly, and a Amazon gift card too....I was delighted! And then storms, life and Blogger issues seemed to send me spinning, so FINALLY I have a proper post for this!


Made especially for the contest by JulieTheFish Designs over at Etsy, I am delighted with it! It is a lovely shiney bauble that will grace my neck quite soon.....and I thank Julie, Frances and Lissa for bearing with me in my gross delay of recognition! (I'd like to blame it on Summer, but I think it is more age related...)
For some fab photos of the City, check out the daytrippers......cool site, one of my favorite places to see through a viewfinder!
Millie Grazie Ladies!!!

Thanks Robbie!

I was *sans-internet* for a while due to storms...not sure if it is back up for real or just a quick blip so pecking as fast as I can! LOL!!!
Yes, I do feel good karma....that is what I want in my life and those of my friends. Always good karma.

XXOO!!

XXOO!!

I saw on the weather channel where you are getting slammed, weather wise that is! We have had some rain here, but it is so humid you don't need to bother with a shower...just step outside you'll be drenched! Love the she who blogs!
Take Car,
Ulrike

Glad you meade it through, yet again!

Deborah said...

OOOOooooooo I love love love the necklace and even the packaging! Could you send me just the box? I do want to know Anne, how do you win so many lovely gifts??? Must be the universe watching over you. **kisskiss** Deb

audrey said...

Congratulations, Anne. What a lovely prize. Simple and handmade ~ that's the ticket!!
Another bad storm??? Geez, Anne, do they ever end there? I am trying to remember if we even had ONE storm this summer. We've had little rain. HEAT AND HUMIDITY!!!!! I really thought we left that behind us in South Carolina!
Thank you for the info (email) yesterday. I will look into that.
I hope your internet stays on today and no more storms for a while.
♥♥ audrey

Lucky you! You deserve this as you certainly are She Who Blogs. Wear it with pride or put it into one of your art pieces. I have looked into getting some of those metal stamping letter kits because I have about 100 of these blank tags. Is that good reasoning or what? They cost too much. I will find a set in a store some day and buy it. Maybe.

Anna Rosa Designs said...

Hi Anne,
Oh wow, you lucky gal and you deserve it sweet blogger!

You'll see you won't be able to reply to my email "no-reply" will come up in your "inbox" of emails.
Ah dear, am I making sense!
Stay dry,
Hugs,
Anna

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Hi All!!!

Sorry again for the *group response*---been dodging storms and yes, you guessed it, more coming in! I may be off here REALLY SOON! (have to get the flying monkeys, ya know!)
I was really excited anout the prizes--I just can't make up my mind on the Amazon cert.---knitting book or comparative theology, Thomas Merton....hmmmmmm.... ;)
You know me, always thinking!
Hope y'all have had a good day!

XXOO!!
Anne

Magpie's Mumblings said...

She Who Blogs - how fitting!! Congrats. And please stay safe from all those nasty storms. They're calling for a t-storm here but we've heard that several times already and nothing happens. We certainly do need some rain!

Gloria said...

I love what you won.
"She Who Blogs." Wear it everytime you blog Anne.:) Congrat on winning. Got to go now, time to make din din for the little hubby. ayeeeeeeee! :) Take care.

Amalia K said...

Anne, hello, hello! It's nice to see you at my blog, and thank you so much for commenting.

Yes, I realize that images are not the only things being used without permission... Alas, words are even easier to copy!!! It does seem to be such a pain, but I'm sure that many people are going through what we're facing and I'm also sure that many of them will not stay still. Well, I will use the "HANDS OFF" sign on my work, for the very least..heheh. :))

Thank you again, Anne. And I suppose I should thank Ces too for dragging you there! Haahahaa....:D

Robin said...

Anne, such a cool prize....isn't it fun to win!!! Congratulations!
(Just be careful NOT to wear it out in the middle of a thunderstorm...a lightning attracter for sure! ;)

♥ Robin ♥

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Hi Amalia,

Yes, word theft is for the brain-dead, image theft is for the completely uncreative.
(to my blog readers, Amalia had some of her images lifted and then found someone else profiting from them)
I shall visit again, and I hope more of my readers will come along---you are an amazing talent!

XXOO!!
Anne

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

LOL Robin!

Actually, I am more concerned about the bionic hip getting blown to bits as I am out shooting photos! (I can see me explaining THAT to the surgeon....well Doc, I got me arse on fire....)

XXOO!!
Anne

Leslie said...

Pretty darn kewl, I wants one!

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Well, Leslie. I suppose you could order one from the girl that made it---form her Etsy shop? :)
Yep---love it!

XXOO!!
Anne
