Greetings, dear reader!

As promised, here are the latest tags sent in for the swap! First, from Rosemary of Retro Rosie:

Ijust love the primary colors and that sweet, rosey cheeked boy!

BOTH rosey-cheeked boys! lol

THEN, I received a package from Lisa Whitlock...of Barncat fame:

She said she couldn't decide which image to use...so she used them ALL! I love it!

Next we have the (so far) largest entries of the swap from Tamera of The Stone Fence Cottage: She sent 6 tags in all! WOOT! Behold the mammoth goodness:

A cowgirl...wranglin a pig! How perfectly hilarious! I just LOVE the aqua color!

And then a rodeo in blue and red...how perfectly perfect! The old songs and the silver charms are wonderful personal touches!

And to add to the personal touches, a bit of an "artist bio" on the back of each tag!

As if those weren't enough, she also sent these...CRACKED ME UP! Just get a load of the singing fruit...cowgirl/cowboy! These are perfect Halloween images! The colors and the fibers just add to the "zing!"

These are my new FAVORITE Halloween images! LOVE!

THEN (by now I had heart palpitations...I kid you not!) I opened these from Erin of the Norman Five in West Texas:

Another first: Oval Tags! Aren't they beautiful? The images and flowers and embellishments are just all SO SWEET!

And, again, a bit about the artist on the back! Just gorgeous!

I am SO thrilled with all of the wonderful tags! I'm so glad I was selfish enough to ask for ya'll to make one for me too! More excitement as the drawing for the Cowgirl Quiltie happens today!

What a wonderful collection of tags. Each one perfectly depicting the theme. Sweet little pieces of art, to be sure!

They're all great! Oval, I never thought of that! Such fun images, your box is going to be FULL! Don't remember if I mentioned it or not, but the little gal on the back of my tag is me on my Reddy pony. I think about 1968, yikes!

Glad they arrived. My husband had them in his pick-up over a week forgetting to send them. Also, I did not put a hole in them because my hole puncher was at school. I kept forgetting to bring them home.

Next weekend, in Lubbock, Texas is the National Cowboy Symposium. Every year I have my 4th, 5th, and 6th grade classes write a poem for the poetry contest. The winners get to read their poems out loud. It is so much fun.
