I won!

Yesterday I announced the winner of my give-a-way and today I'm posting on a give-a-way I won! I've known about this for 10 days now but I was waiting for the delivery through the mail, well it arrived safely yesterday. Prim and Whimsy Gals, a collective site for crafters, hosted a Halloween give-a-way with 9 winners, 9 winners! I threw my comment in because all the prizes are wonderful, they are donated by the people who support the site.


Never, never in my wildest dreams did I think I'd win first place, I did! It is this 17 carat African amethyst gemstone with a 16 sided polyhedron oval cut and I have such a urge to set it in a ring, what do you think? It was donated by
Dorothy from The Big Rock Show.


The camera doesn't pick up the sparkle from this rare gem but it glistens in the light, it has a lot of fire and depth to it's appearance.

It also shimmers with red. C&G Design

Sheesh! What a great prize - I am so happy for you Dawn; ) That is GORGEOUS.

You came and read my tirade, ty for your support. I have lost nearly all my readers and no wonder, I haven't been able to blog in weeks. This makes your visit extra special and appreciated even more.

Today I am off to the store to work, so may or may not have the internet. If I do, I think I'll visit sweeties like you and just say how glad I am to have them as blogging buddies.

Have a great rest of the day, xJ
