Searching for Wallpaper Offered

A month or so ago I noticed a wallpaper that I loved shown behind a gadget or other desktop customization that I just loved. The person, in his or her description, said if anyone wanted the wallpaper shown in the screenshot to send him/her a PM. I wrote down him/her user name ( member name ) to send a PM later asking for the wall but then lost the note it was written on. Since then, I've searched and searched the site looking for the gadget or whatever that had the wallpaper shown behind it, but to no avail. I also diligently searched the wallpaper section but I don't believe it was ever offered there and did not find it, anyway. It was a wallpaper ( background ) showing a woman ( not a photo, though ) and she was wearing a white hood of some sort  and she was out in the falling snow. The predominant colors were, if I remember corectly, blue and white. If anyone could help find the page or gadget/widget showing the wallpaper or tell me who it might have been who offered it, I would appreciate it very much as I would really love to have that wallpaper! Thanks in advance.

What type of gadget was it, what did it do?

I don't actually recall....my bad. It might not have even been a gadget that it was shown with. Probably wasn't a "widget", though,  as I don't usually look in that area, nor at the Windowblinds very much either, as I don't have the software required to use either one.  I just said gadget as that's the area I download most from and often look through and check most often. It might have been most anything. Sorry I can't be more specific as I wander around looking at all the customization options, as well as screenshots, and it could have pretty much been anywhere. Thank you for trying to help me as I really appreciate it.

Not alot to go on here OneShoe. 

How long ago was it? If you can remember when it was that will help.

Can you remember if you saw it on the WC Home Page?

Your title 'Searching for Wallpaper Offered'.  Did you check the WinCustomize Gallery Wallpaper Library?

Did you by any chance save the PM you sent?

Philly, I searched the Gadget Gallery back to 4/11 and found nothing like that.

If OneShoe is correct as to the timing, the member must have taken it down. Not much to do in any case.

That image is gorgeous. I don't use Boot skins but this was too nice to pass up. Thanks Jim.

Thanks, all you guys, for being so nice in trying to help me find the wallpaper. The one Redneck Dude posted is very pretty but isn't the one I was referring to. ( but thanks a bunch for trying to help me, sweetie ). The girl in the wall I saw and wanted was more close up and, if I recall correctly, it showed the side of her face in the hooded jacket ( parka/coat? ) which was blue or white. Sorry, I've not given enough info to make it easier to find but that's about the best I can do. As far as when it was that I saw it, I'd say about a month ago. ( I often wander around deep into the older uploads so it might have been offered a good bit back, though ) I never got around to sending the PM as I was in a hurry that day and then evidently cleaned notes off my desk soon afterward, and in doing so, unfortunately lost the user's name and couldn't send a PM nor then find the wall or whatever it was shown behind. I've went pretty deep into gadgets, etc. and several other areas but to no avail. Oh, well, it was worth a shot asking.

Thanks again for any help you gave or can give. You're all very nice and sweet!

I found one very similar on the net and am now using it so I think it will do. This one has some red in it and is kind of purple tinted so it's a little different from the wallpaper I remember seeing here. Here is a screenshot of my desktop with the wallpaper I found last night on the net on another site. The weather gadget at top is "Picture This" by Richard Mohler ( relhom ) . I may switch to another weather gadget or add a calendar and maybe other gadgets when, or if,  I find something that matches and that I like.

 Thanks everyone for trying to help!

Thank you Frankief. I tried to get the image from the bootskin but sadly it didn't work. I thought maybe I could extract it somehow. Good thing is the resolution is close to mine so there won't be any noticeable distortion.

And not to worry Jim. I'm crazy, not stupid. lol
