Happy Trails To You... An Adorable Gift from Sandy

Remember these boots (BDay gift from Hubby -see June 1 Post)? Remember Sandy Navarro? One of the BLESSINGS of all blessings from attending HeArt of Communion Art Event put on by The Gilded Life at "The Church" (home of Debbie & Shea). I met sweet Sandy at this event & although she lives hundreds of miles away in California (how does it happen that Sooooooooooooooo many of my buddies live out there?) we talk often & are developing an amazing friendship.
She sent me this adorable purse for my birthday. And she made that precious card to the left of the purse. When she saw the boots she said she KNEW I NEEDED this purse.
Yep, wrapped in red tissue & snuggled in that brown crinkle set this little bit of WESTERN BLING!
Here's a close up of the front. On the back it says "Happy Trails To You Until We Meet Again"
The other Cowgirls will be pea green I'm sure. So girls... What are you wearing? This jewel is metal & round. And TINY! Just enough room for 1.Keys 2. Credit Card (cash) 3. Lipstick and 4. Cell Phone. What else does a girl need? WHY do we insist in carrying the kitchen sink?
My precious card that Sandy made that reads "SO YOU'RE GONIN WITHOUT ME" Have a blowout time at Paper Cowgirl.
The card just sits perfectly in the bottom of the purse. I do believe that this needs a couple of coats of resin & to be permanently attached. So, every time I see it... I THINK OF SWEET SANDY! Girlfriend, it'll be just like you're there with me. THANK YOU for your generous, FUN gift but, most of all... for the gift of your friendship. And that goes to so many of you out there. My friends (& I consider so many of you friends) are so important to me. Happy Trails!

Hi char,
Thanks for the input on the boots, My daughter wears a size 10 womens and she goes to a boot barn here and try's on any styles and fits. She has a difficult foot to fit narrow, flat feet, and big she says. She would be affraid that they may not fit well.

Thank you for your lovely commets, and I too love that I have made contact with you.
I will see you soon and you visit me as well :)
