Oh, my! What could be a better ending to a magic carpet ride than ending up with Anne Francis - oh, Honey West, if you knew how I loved you when I was in seventh grade! LOL

Thanks so much for this fab prize! It's going to be framed IMMEDIATELY and go right into my studio.

With pleased-as-punch gratitude,

LYNDY WARD said...

Hi Tristan, you made my day!!! I'm so glad you're pleased as punch.

The Forbidden Planet Postcard is one of my favorite movie postcards too. Anne Francis was a knock out & Robby The Robot is still popular today.

Robby The Robot was Hallmark's best selling Christmas ornament 2009.

This OWOH Magic Carpet Ride was a lot of fun, but now it's time to get a little rest from all our travels...

LYNDY WARD said...

Whoo Hoo Again!!! I love everything Sherrie. Vintage is my all time favorite. VERY PRETTY.

Everything is so me...

Thank You Again Sherrie with all my heart. It was so nice to meet you & I hope you'll stay in touch too.

Hi Lindy, You won a pair of earrings from me for the One World One Heart giveaway. Please stop by my blog or email me and leave me your address.

Trudy Callan said...

I wanted to thank you for entering my OWOH Giveaway. It was great fun. It was so crazy with so many blogs to visit that it was hard to really take a look at each one. So I invite you to come back and take a look around both of my blogs and see what you think. If you like them, I hope you will consider signing up as a follower and/or placing my blog on your blog list so that you can better keep up with me and know when I post. Thank you for taking the time, and I hope to hear from you soon.

Have an awesome day!


My 9 year old daughter's blog is if you would like to pay her a visit as well.

LYNDY WARD said...

Hi Diana, what pretty earrings you make. Thank you so much! My favorite color is purple & amethyst is my favorite crystal ~ so healing.

I will be posting a comment on your Blog & I have added a photo with description of your enchanting gift to my Blog with a back link to you. I will be joining your Follow list & I hope you'll Follow me on my site too.

Thank you again for the lovely earrings.

Cosmic Blessings, Lyndy

LYNDY WARD said...

Hi Trudy, thank you for entering my OWOH Giveaway & visiting me too.

I will visit your blog ASAP & I will be joining your Follow list & I hope you'll Follow me on my site as well.

Melanie said...

Oh My, I should have joined the OWOH Giveaway. Next year for sure. Great Gifts!

Your blog & posts are very interesting & your photos are super. I especially like your animated photos.

Your Todaysgold Vinca Major The Magickal Plant brought me by. I'm going to try this too. Looks like this little plant is very healing.

Thanks For Your Magickal Healing Advice,

LYNDY WARD said...

Hi Melanie, thank you for your kind comments. I try to make my blog interesting for a wide audience. I love the animated PICs too.

I use Vinca Major quit a bit. It's is a true healing Magickal plant. You can dry Vinca Major blossoms & leaves & make a wonderful healing tea. If you don't grow your own Vinca you can use the Vinca Tincture in your favorite teas.

Magickal Healing Blessings,

Julia Smith said...

Wow - you visited over a thousand blogs! I haven't been near that number, but I got to almost 300. I really enjoyed this event - this was my first year for it.

Love the prizes you won.

LYNDY WARD said...

Hi Julia, yes I visited & left comments on 1000 + Blogs. That's probably why I won several lovely gifts from 5 wonderful Bloggers. I spent several days reading & answering the questions these OWOH participants asked before leaving my comments about their Blogs.

I love the prizes I won too. But I especially love the many Kindred Spirits I met because of Lisa's OWOH Magical Carpet Ride. It was an enchanting experience all round...

Cosmic Blessings,

Tristan Robin Blakeman said...

Woo hoo - yabba dabba doo - zippity doo dah - hot diggity dog - and all similar exclamations of excitement!

My uber fab card of Anne Francis and Robby the Robot arrived! I just love it. I'm running right out this evening to have it framed!

Thanks so much, Lyndy - I appreciate the prize - and will take good care of the dynamic duo!

Lisa Oceandreamer said...

Dearest Lyndy..I've been away since OWOH ended and then came home with a cold....BUT what a lovely surprise awaited me upon my return. The lovely Anne Francis/robot postcard. I am going to mat and frame it for hanging in my studio. Thank you so much and thank you for being a part of this Magic Carpet ride!!!!!!!

LYNDY WARD said...

Hi Tristan, Whoo Hoo Too! I'm so glad you're happy with your Altaira & Robby The Robot OWOH postcard gift.

I think Anne Francis is still a beauty & I also loved her in Honey West. Her Ocelot seen on the detective drama was named Bruce Biteabit... I've never run across a Honey West postcard. They must be very rare if they exist anywhere.

Have a great weekend with XOs,

LYNDY WARD said...

Hi Lisa, Whoo Hoo x Two! I'm thrilled you're happy with your Altaira & Robby The Robot OWOH postcard gift.

Hope you're feeling better. OWOH was another major success & I really hope you'll have another wonderful event next year. Thanks Lisa, this was my first OWOH & I met many wonderful kindred spirits, especially your kindred dear heart... WOW!

Have a great weekend with XOs!
Cosmic Blessings,

LYNDY WARD said...

Whoo Hoo x Three! I'm also thrilled you're both happy with your Altaira & Robby The Robot 'Forbidden Planet' OWOH postcard gift.
