Millions? WHAT?

Greetings folks.  I decided to check blog viewing numbers which I haven't done in a while, to see if they are declining.  Yes they are.  But I also happened to spot a number I never paid attention to.  Total pageviews.  Holy crap it's over 2 million. 2,008,983 to be exact.  I figure about 8,983 are my own views, looking up something I forgot, which I happened to do again today.  I should have kept a journal of giveaways because even though I definitely have a problem with memory and "placements", some of those items I'm searching for aren't even here.  And I don't remember giving them away.  Geez I had a lot of giveaways.  But I also saw posts that featured my purchases of new charts and wowewow I'm excited.  I saw several I didn't remember having and I like them.  See?  Still getting double bang for my buck.
 
So here's the deal.  Giveaway. HA!  Who knew? 
While checking my box inventory I came across one that either never sold, or I didn't offer because of a flaw.  Right now, I don't see anything wrong.  It's a small 5" square paper mache box with Mary Antrim's sampler.  Distressed and aged.  I lost almost all labels with the computer failure but would like to offer more boxes for the holidays.
 
Interested?   Leave your initials in the comments on this post, name to be drawn Sunday November 1 at 8 pm. It really really hurt my crooked fingers to type November.   Whoops.  Did it again.
 
And just in case you smell something while reading this, it's been a crockpot kielbasa kraut day and there is no candle that can rid the house of that.  It's like an entity. I wouldn't be at all surprised if it seeps through your keyboards. 
I'm having a little party tomorrow at 11pm for my final Golden Girls and Frazier until next year.  I wish Hallmark would keep the midnight shift out of the Christmas Countdown.
 
Have a great weekend.

Kristen said...

Oh Marly, I am with you re: GG! Why can't Hallmark use their movie channel for all that xmas schlock? I may have to buy the box set of the series and give up Hallmark all together. (Btw, TVLand does run the show sometimes on the weekends.)

I'd love a chance to win that lovely box. I'm K.S.

OK. here goes...
BJFW-S = TRANLSATION, Barbara Joan Faustina Wheeler-Shores. I chose Faustina(Polish Saint) for my confirmation name and am so happy I did.
Maybe some of your Kielbasa and Sauerkraut aromas will permeate your sweet box ... but I would love to have both the box and the recipe.
Enjoy the day with Peace to all,
Barb

Dixie said...

laceystitcher said...

Just the thought of kraut gets my mouth watering...............................yum! I would love a chance to win your wonderful box; please enter me. Enjoy....................

capecodgirl565 said...

The Polish side of me is fantasizing now about kielbasa and kraut! I can go for that any time any day! I would love a chance to win your darling box, please throw my name in for a chance! Initials are VAT as in a vat of kraut.

Leslie Alexander said...

LHA. The "H" is for Hnatek - Czech. Is your kraut homemade? I only tasted homemade sauerkraut once - at a family reunion and my aunt had made it. It was A.M.A.Z.I.N.G. She gave me the recipe and I have my grandmother's 8 gallon crock they used to use for such things. But I've never tried it.
I've just recently discovered your blog. I just went over the 60 marker this year and enjoy your honesty about all the changes.

Evelyne said...
