8 AWAY GIVEAWAY

So the deal is..
I am 8 away from 2 milestones.
In 8 posts (now 7 posts I guess),
I will have posted 500 times.
NO WAY - NO HOW
nuh uh!
Yeppir, I've done it.


So I'm gonna stuff a box with goodies
and mail it off to one of you gals.
I already have a few items...
but plan to add soooooooo much more, so stay tuned.


The other milestone is another big bunch of followers,
so I am also going to 
order and send one of these beauties. 


to one of you beauties. 
If you missed my love affair with 
the blue bucket read here.

You know the routine:
Leave me a comment on this post for one entry.

Post about it, link back to me, or use this pic and link it to 
old grey mare in your sidebar and let me know in a second comment for another entry.


WHOOPS someone just reminded me...
Follow me or remind me that you follow
 in a third comment for a third entry.
You'd think I'd know by now how this works : D


Two winners will be picked on April 1st.

Now, what else to add to the box?
