Greetings, dear friends!

Just moseyed out to the corral and found not one, not two, not three, but FOUR packages full of Wild West goodness! It's a BOnafide BOnanza! YAHOO!

First to be ripped from their packaging, are the tags from Meri of ImagiMeri's! Complete with chunky turquoise and mattress ticking background!

Meri also included a FABRIC image of the REAL Wild West: A Saguaro Cactus Forest!

And on the back, a history of the Saguaro! Love it!

Next up: Two tags from Pam Snow of Treasures N you recognize the cowboy on the left? Our first "presidential" wild west tag! Also, Wild Bill Hickok...both actors, and both more Hollywood than real "cowboy" (visited Wild Bill's ranch/museum in Nebraska...he was quite the showman, but not so much the authentic cowboy. And Ronald Reagan? Well, his home was in Dixon, IL...a far cry from the Wild West!) But I sure love the tags! The fringe KILLS me!

And then our Michele Kaplan sent in two tags...a young whipper snapper (the tag says, "A Man's Gotta Do What a Man's Gotta Do") HILARIOUS! And then a shapely cowgirl in a stylish pink outfit...obviously not giving up fashion for function! The bottle caps and beads on the bottom (of the cowgirl tag) are a wonderful personal touch!

Our next set of tags comes from Missy of Little Messy Missy. Two more gorgeous pinup cowgirls...and hand quilling...jute rope, and a hand drawn honeycomb background. How COOL is that?!

Yes, indeedy! A veritable wild west bonanza in today's mail! Be sure to check out the final swap list a few posts back...we are at an even 20! WOOT!

Git ready for another contest/giveaway! You'll just LOVE this one!

Keep ridin' cowgirls!
