Woo Hoo! I have 50 followers . . .

and I am also quickly approaching my 100th post.

Maybe its time for another giveaway???  Now what should I give away . . .


I did not believe it when I heard it,
but apparently they are real Horizon Relief 'Bottles of Hope'

UPDATE:  I realized I may have been unclear when I said they were "real", I only mean to imply that someone is really selling bottles of oil spill, I have no idea how much (if any) or in what manner the proceeds are actually being used for the claimed charitable purpose.
Guess I will have to come up with something you might actually want to have in your house.

Absolutely no stitching done today, but . . . I played Monopoly with DS and his friend for 3 hours (I did not think most kids would play a board game for that long anymore) and this evening spent time playing Toy Story 3 for Wii with my DS.


  1. Congrats on 50 followers!!

    I think I just picked my jaw up off the floor seeing your post. $1,000... "Wow" is all I could think!

  2. I gotta be honest, I'm not sure I believe some of these "relief" gimmicks we read/hear about. Does the money actually get to those that really need it? Sometimes I wonder.

    I remember when I first started blogging, I was literally giddy to get followers. Congrats on 50!

    My kiddo's do still play board games. They seem to get desperate some days for something different to do. This past week they were playing Monopoly, Clue, and mousetrap (which they played to be silly cause they are way too old for it) Oh.. and they have discovered the cards & poker chips. I love to see them sitting around playing games with no tv or video games. Good wholesome fun.

  3. Congrats on all the followers! Blogging buddies are just the best!

    I can't believe the bottles. Crazy.

  4. could fit a wind powered generator in your garden for that much:-)
    Congrats on your 50 followers. We all have very good taste obviously!
    Perhaps I should sell boxes of 'wind' on ebay would be more environmentally friendly (just not very honest ;-)

  5. Now you have 51 :o) Congrats!

    I can't believe that but then I should because people will do anything to make a buck :o(
