Snowed In. Send Hooch with the St. Bernard!

I've been MIA for a while because my beloved Mac decided to take a crap.  And, as it turns out, it's dead.  Completely gone forever.  I suppose it finally committed suicide because I'd been threatening to throw it over a cliff for a while now.  It's about time I bought a new one anyway as it was 7 years old, which is 49 in Violet years. 

And....we're getting tons of snow here a mile high.  Just in time for traveling during Thanksgiving.  If you're so inclined to help dig me out of an avalanche, please send hooch with the St. Bernard.  I'd appreciate it.  :)  

Without my Mac to post pictures, and gradually becoming buried in snow, I've decided to have a giveaway.  The great people at CSN contacted me again and asked me to give another $75 gift certificate to my lovely peeps.  How could I say no?  Besides, it's just in time for the holidays!   

I went window shopping on their site and since holiday travel time is coming up, I decided sling backpacks were the perfect choice.

I love, love, love any bag that is made out of leather.  This is great and the perfect color.

But, now I need some boots if I'm going on a trip.

Oooo, since I'm a western kinda gal, these will do just fine! 

And, if Violet's coming with me (she goes where I go), she'll need one of these! 
The gal has to travel in style!

   
     
So, hop on over to CSN's site and do a little window shopping of your own for the holidays.  Come back here and leave a comment with what you'd like to purchase with your $75 gift certificate.  I'll also give you extra entries for posting this contest on your blog, Facebook and Twitter. 

I'm leaving this open until next Tuesday when I'll finally have my new lightenin' fast IMac up and running and can post more of my Handmade Holiday ideas.  There's lots to show you!

p.s. I'm thinkin' I really do need those boots!  :P

I love the leather bags, too. I try not to look at them too much, because the more I look the more I think I need. Shoes are not my thing - bags are.

That said, I might grab a pair of Sebago docksiders for my man. They float his boat. Well, they're boats, and the cover his feet.

Congrats on the new Macbaby. My husband is a Mac man and if his was limping along he would not be a happy camper.

There would be much coolness if I could subscribe to your blog via email!

Also, how do you live in that place? So much static - it's not good for kissing to get zapped all the time.
