A day behind

Yesterday was my 200th post.  I had something special planned and then, poof, with a click of the button I goofed up that plan.

So instead, will you please all celebrate my 201st post with me? Hurrah!

This means many of you have endured over 200 posts that elaborately detailed the ramblings and chaos inside my brain. (My Dad says I'm going to drive myself nuts thinking as much as I do. He's probably right. Rubber room, here I come!) Hope you can hang in there for the next 200.

To everyone who has followed along, your support and encouragement really DOES make a difference. We can't thank you enough.

To celebrate, we are having our first giveaway!

I knitted up these teeny tiny socks, which adorned our tree this season. And they could adorn your tree, or your review mirror, or perhaps Ken's feet if Barbie keeps the Dreamhouse too cold.

Here's how to enter:
  • Leave a comment on this post, telling us what your favorite childhood toy was. (Mine was my Holly Hobby doll--her bonnet was an excellent hiding spot for candy!)
  • Be a subscriber. (We promise we won't ever try to sell you anything or ask you to help us move.)
We'll draw names on January 3, so check back then to see who wins!

  11. Whether it was baby dolls, cabbage patch kids or Barbies, My sis always got the purple dressed one a I got the pink. Pretty clever of my mom so we could keep our stuff seperate. I am kind of embarrassed to admit my love affair with Barbies. I do believe I played with them until 6th grade:)

  12. my favorite item was a phonograph that was a gift for my sister Judy and I. It was a little fold up case but we thought it was a stereo...it came with 45 records......we were cool
