LOOK at what I WON!


I have wanted one of these all my life since I first saw one in someones home as a young girl.
I believe then, since it was massive, they were extemely expensive. But, this was a luxury I could never afford, especially with kids.
Now they are gone and we get to have one!
I actually won the contest in June of '08! I hope it does not take as long for me to recieve it! But, they have the most beautiful globes on this site and I would go visit and just drool! Hoping one day I would be able to be extravegant for once and buy one that I did not find at some garage sale or Goodwill. LOL! You know me...if it is not on clearance or I can't find it at Goodwill...I did not buy it!
Anyway, they have a contest going on for a different globe which is a monthly drawing. It is a small gemstone globe in a Gold hand. If you like these as much as I do, visit the site by clicking on their banner above and Good Luck!
Thanks to Paul from World Globes and Maps!!

Thanks guys! I looked up the Yellow Jasper stone and the meaning behind it. It says that it is strong protection gemstone, jasper sustains and supports during times of stress. It is one of the oldest known gemstones. It is mentioned in the Bible several times. Jasper is a strong securing gemstone. It is a stability gemstone. It is a powerful protection against things that are not good for you and it eases emotional stresses, plus it channels positive energy. How cool is this?? Just what I need right now! I hope it hurrys up and gets here! The gentleman that contacted me said it should arrive in a couple days. It is being shipped out of Seattle...90 miles away, so it should take no time at all! You can't tell I am excited can you!
