Horse of a different color and GIVEAWAY!

Comments are CLOSED for the giveaway! I’ll announce the winner Wednesday morning! THANKS!!!

And now for the horse of a different color…..


Have you ever seen a horse that looked like a dalmation?


Very odd indeed….but beautiful! (photos taken through the windshield!)


And speaking of critters, I bought Miss Martha from Jan at Burnt Woods Primitives !


She makes some of the most amazing little critters!


And I’ve been looking for one to nestle in my bowl of apples on the coffee table!


Perfect….look at the detail! Thanks Jan!


And does anyone have a head of lettuce?


Because I have dressing…. and recipes!


I won all of these salad dressings from a Giveaway that BJ had at Sweet Nothings ! Thanks BJ!! I’m eating a lot more salads so this was perfect timing! And they are delicious!


Hope your day is filled with surprises…and the unexpected! Enjoy your Tuesday!

Oh the horses are lovely! Thanks for posting such beautiful pictures. Also, your little critter is a cutsie pie! I love it.

Thanks for sharing.

Great win and timely too! That salad looks amazingly yummy. What a cute little autumnal critter!

I love horses--especially speckled ones! One of my favorite things about Texas is that everyone has a horse or two.
It's only 9:00am and your salad looks delicious, how much longer until lunch!

Oh so glad you like them. It was surely my pleasure to hold the giveaway.
That salad looks amazing. We are just about ready to eat lunch and guess what we'll have...:)))

The horse is an appaloosa! Aren't they pretty? The mouse makes a sweet addition to your home. I just finished a salad like yours, sans the bacon. Mine had shaved turkey. Yum. The avacados are so good right now.

My goodness, you have been a busy travel'n girl..taking in all the beauty around you...its so nice to get out for a drive or hike.
You look "great", 10 pounds is a lot to loose, two thumbs up! I need to get busy and lose some pounds before Christmas (I'll try).
The horses are beautiful, I love to watch then run and play each other.
Have a sweet day and big hugs-Elizabeth

Aww..... shucks, thank you so much for the kudos. I am so happy that you like Miss Martha. I am just finishing up another little lady that is riding a top a Rabbitmobile. I will post when she is done. Martha looks very cute perched in the center amongst the apples. That salad looks too yummy too. I may just have to fix a chefs salad for dinner tonight.

Miss Martha is a cutie and looks darling in the midst of your apples.
The salad looks delish and how fun to have a choice of so many interesting dressings. Congratulations on your win.

What a fun win!

That little mouse is sooooo adorable!


Dianne said...

Lovely photos... The horse is called a Leopard Appaloosa. Beautiful huh?

Draffin Bears said...

Hi Diane,

Loved seeing the countryside from out of your car window ~ the horses are beautiful.
Your wee mouse is cute and love the detail.


Cyndi said...

Diane, as usual your photos are lovely. That horse is most likely an Appaloosa. Most people think Appaloosa's only have spots on their rumps, but they can actually have them all over. He's beautiful!

And Miss Martha is adorable, too. I love little mice!

And yes, your salad looks yummy!

Jan's Miss Martha is so cute sitting amongst your apples! I bought a couple of small stuffed mice Christmas ornaments in Sausalito as I couldn't resist them!

Your horse picture brought back such memories...when I was a little girl living in upstate NY,
I thought the black and white dairy cows were called "dalmation cows". It became a family joke!
So when I read your post I just had to chuckle. Your area is so very beautiful. Thank you for the sweet memory and giggle.
