Howdy, ya'll!

You will NOT believe what I found in my mailbox the other day! It took me forever to photograph it all! Okay, are you sittin' down? (without yer spurs on I hope!)

From Nan at Bubbles of Joy:

Her Tags! ORIGINAL drawings! How incredible are these? The little cowgirl and sweet pony just steal my heart! (Nan tells me its her alter ego as a wee child...what a fun and adorable alter ego!)

(I am honored each of you ladies chose my little swap to create original art...I continue to be blown away by your creativity!)

See the amazing Wild West town in the background? Compliments of Nan!

And the FABulous covered wagon and horses? Nan!

And Jessie the Wild West Cowgirl Pez Dispenser? Yup! NAN!

And another surprise (not shown) that each of ya'll will have in your Wild West Tag package! This woman is just totally OVER THE TOP!

THANK YOU, Nan for your kindness and generosity! Your hostess gifts are everything a would-be wild west aficionado could ask for!

Two more contributors to go! I just can't wait to see what else is in store for us! This has been the most fun swap EVER!

(DISCLAIMER: I fear the exclamation mark police will be ticketing me for my overindulgence in this post...but I just HAD to find some way to convey my excitement! All of you grammatical gurus please forgive my superlative and punctuation overuse!)

Excited hugs to you all!
Paula Clare

OH what fun, Paula! LOVE that Wild West scene--what a sweetheart she was to send all that to you!

Just saw you're visit to my blog--thanks! And, you're VERY creative, my friend...don't know what you're talking about! But, I'd always be happy to help you with ANYTHING!

Talk to you soon!

Hi Paula - thank you so much for stopping by my blog! I am just thrilled to have one Elizabeth's banner - I just can't believe it! You are sooooo talented! I just love the western cowboy/girl thing - since I grew up with horses, and my brother is a "real" cowboy - they just make me smile. Did you grow up with Johnny and Jane West toys? We had boxes of them! Hugs, Patti

I love coming here Paula to visit but I about have a heart attack every time, it's all so cute and makes me happy and sappy all over.
Come visit me again sometime, I miss you!

LOL Paula, I use waaaay too many "!!!" all the time! I'm glad everything arrived ok. You want to know something weird, the company I work for is named "ELI". I did not know that was the name of the store in the Wild West scene I sent you until I saw your picture. How's that for a coincidence. I had so much fun doing this, my first swap and now I want to do more. Have a great week, hugs and blessings, Nan
