Diamonds Treasure Hunt — June 2008

June is officially the start of winter down under. It’s the time of year when schools insist on full winter uniform (and most kids do everything they can to break the uniform rules) cars and house roofs are laden with frost in the mornings and temperatures definitely drop. Here in NZ I’m always amazed at how where I live has a much milder winter than our Southern counterparts. They can actually have wicked snow storms creating havoc on the roads and major stock losses for farmers, even snow down to sea level! Brrrr. Give me a balmier climate any day of the week, LOL.

 Anyway, all this talk of cold stuff reminds me of a line in ‘HOW TO LOSE A GUY IN 10 DAYS” where they come up with an advertising slogan to “frost yourself” with diamonds. That kind of cold I really don’t mind and I’m sure you don’t too. So, here’s what you’ve really been waiting for, right? The final clues for the stunning diamond puff heart pendant, valued at US$350, in our Diamonds Down Under treasure hunt… (drumroll please…)



Clue 1: What is Rachel’s parting gift to Matt?
Clue 2: In what month did Yvonne meet her significant other? (Clue, check out the “What’s New?” page on Yvonne’s website)

 Remember, DON’T POST THE ANSWERS HERE. Collect them, save them, and when you have the answers to all twelve questions in June/July, send them to the contest email address on the Diamonds Down Under contest page.  If you missed the other clues, you’ll find them all sorted under the Categories link on the right.

    It’s weird reading about your winter and frost when it was 90F here.

    Hello, evryone, Hi, Christa,

    I only have one thing to say: It’s here – the last book of the DDU series!

    Haha, it’s finally hit summer weather here too – a little sad we got no warning. A few days ago it was 30 degrees (ok so at night – but during the day it was only 50) -and now it’s in the 90s! I need more gradual temperature changes!
    I also can’t believe the end is here. I loved this series, ladies!

  5. From one of Yvonne’s ‘southern counterparts’ where we did indeed have wicked snow yesterday, I slipped on ice on our new wooden deck and now have 12 lovely stitches gracing my ugly mug.
    Hope this isn’t an omen for the new house…
    Good luck for the treasure hunt everyone!

  6. Oh my gosh, Jan! You poor thing. And no, it’s not an omen for the new house. You’ve just got rid of any bad vibes that were left there from previous owners. 🙂

    Hugs, and heal better soon.

  7. Jan, gentle hugs. Bet you still look gorgeous, even with stitches. Look after yourself and stay warm. I heard from another friend down your way about the cold — she was out watching her daughter ride in an eventing comp. Brrrrrr.


  8. lordy, Jan, that’s something I’d do! 😦

  9. OOoh, Jan, so sorry to hear about your fall and the stitches. You poor thing.

  10. Christa Says:

    Jan- feel better soon
