The pony draw

Holy schmoly.  I guess you guys liked the box!  Thank you everyone for participating.  Makes me feel good that so many of you would like a little piece of my work.  I started entering the names early because of the number of comments, plus the email entries.  I want to let everyone know (some of you I replied to, others are no-reply) that whenever I offer an item, it is open to everyone everywhere.  All the international entries were included, and please don't feel you shouldn't enter because of where you live.  Yes, it's costly to ship but if I don't specify that the offer is for US only, please enter if you would like. 

Now before I tell you who Random chose, I have to tell you this.  My sister has been having things moved in her house.  Little things.  She wakes up to items across the room from where they were, last night a large cardboard box of Christmas lights fell off a table for no reason.  Her cats are all gone except for the outside hoard of strays, no one else is there.  My friend who feels she is psychic, said that the departed souls start to warn you when your time to reunite with them is near.  Holy crap.  How scary is that?  Of course I didn't tell Carole that and maybe it's a chimney squirrel reeking havoc at night.  But I doubt it would be able to remove a little pillow from a hook and place it elsewhere.  I'll keep you posted.
 
And thanks for the skinny jeans approval.  I must admit that the curvy fit is better, but that is a misnomer for me.  I don't have curves.  I have bulges.
 
And the winner of the pony box is....Dogwood Farm.  I will email her shortly.  I guess the ponies are staying in Pennsylvania.  I really thought they would be taking a long trip, maybe overseas, but as usual I am wrong.  Just like with the boxes.  I always make too many of my favorite, and it is never the one you like.
 
Have a good week everyone and thank you again so much.

I would love to have put in for the draw for the box as you know I just adore those ponies (from AM) but when I saw how many people had already put their names down, I decided not to, but then I could have been the lucky one, somebody has to win after all. Maybe your Sister is having an episode of sleep walking and does not realise, I used to move my pillow over to a chair when I was a kid.

Congratulations to the winner of your lovely box.
It looks scary what happend in Caroles house but sometimes there is a simpel explanation. So do I smell so now and than smoke of a pipe but nobody does smoke in my house.
Have a wonderful Christmas.
Greetings Truus from Holland

Marly, I don't believe that scary stuff.........If there is a spirit in Carole's home, maybe it's your Mom stopping in to say Merry Christmas. I do believe that there have been visits by loved ones here in our home. Strange things have happened but I'm not afraid.
Congratulations to the winner of your ponies. She's a lucky gal.
Have a wonderful week and a marvelous Christmas.

Congrats to the winner and I know she'll enjoy it for years to come.
Strange things happening at Carole's home could be a case of her taking her night time meds then moving things around when she's kinda out of it. Happens to me and hubby all the time especially eating which explains my weight gain the last few years.
Merry Christmas

Well I hope the moving items turn out to be no omen of bad. Thanks for keeping us entertained on your blog all year Marly - have a great holiday and new year too!

Strange things have happened at my house for at least 10 years now, so I don't think it is an omen of 'impending doom'. Only last week 3 cardboard boxes 'fell' off a shelf in a room with a closed door. I think maybe traffic going past causes tiny vibrations which eventually result in things falling off shelves. I always remember my mother's words, "The dead won't harm you, it's the living you've got to watch out for!"

I'm 65 and I wear stretch, skinny jeans tucked into boots. Jolly comfy! (Not as comfy as PJ's though!)

Merry Christmas Marly! xx

Thanks everyone and THANK YOU so very much Marly!! I will treasure this beautiful box with special thoughts of you! xoxo

Let's hope some critter got into Carole's house. Wishing you both good health and many blessings!
