Diamonds Treasure Hunt — June 2008

Posted in Treasure Hunt with tags , , on June 7, 2008 by yvonnelindsay

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.

 

GOOD LUCK!
