A treat in the mail

Some of you may remember that a little while ago Spectra of Spectrum Woman proposed a Great American Snowman Contest to be run over the American winter

I bitched and moaned about her geographica and climatical prejudices.  She gave in and extended the contest to anyone who wanted to play, using whatever materials were available.

So I cheated and entered the snow woman I had made at while I was at school.

In all her glory, here she is.

The Great Australian Snow Slut.



And she won a prize!
 Which arrived today.  Earrings to add to my (very large) collection.  And I am sure that the snow slut approves.



Thank you Spectra.  From both of us.

  1. Well done - maybe you should sell the earrings to go towards some corrective breast surgery for your, ahem, Snow Slut...? Her left one seems to be higher and perkier than the other :)

    1. Kath: She would like you to know that she was in fact anatomically correct(ish). Most of us have one breast larger than the other. So I am keeping those earrings.

  2. The snow woman is great, I love her, but those earrings...oh! the earrings! I'm doing some serious coveting here.
    Congratulations on your prize.

    1. Starting Over, Accepting Changes - Maybe: Why thank you. In the card that came with my earrings Spectra said that I should 'wear them with the Pride and Arrogance of a winner....' Arrogance is not my style, but I will certainly show off her handiwork with pride.

    2. -well, here in Jersey, we have no clue how to distinguish between Pride and Arrogance. It's all just mushed up together in one big Additude Bomb.
