An Eclectic Mix of Fluff and Stuff

Today is my 475th post. Good heavens! What have I possibly found to talk about in all those posts?! This blog originally had the subtitle "an eclectic mix of fluff and stuff." Guess this represents a whole lot of fluff.

When the 400 number came up right in the middle of holiday preparations and busyness, I decided that I would allow it to pass by without comment. Now that I have some extra time on my hands, I would love to have another apron giveaway celebrating both my 400th and 500th posts. So, if you'd like to leave a comment on this post and only this post, please do. This is limited to those who have a blog, but not limited to location so feel free to leave a comment no matter that you live in East IshBish. Just one request, do not comment on your blogs or link back to me. This is only for the gal (or guy) who wanders in and finds it on her own! I'm keeping comments open for one week. When you see comments closed, all those who've commented (once is enough) will be entered. The winner will be allowed to select her own color preferences so once the winner is announced, I'll be in touch for all the particulars plus a bit of snooping on your blog.

Thanks!

  12. Hi Vee!
    I'm afraid I must disqualify myself, as I am already the recipient of one of your lovely aprons, but I wanted to congratulate you on nearing your 500th blog post! WOW!
    That is perseverance ..lol!
    I'm so glad you decided to share your eclectic mix of fluff and stuff with us all, and that we've become friends.
    It's always a pleasure to visit here, so I'm looking forward to the next 500 posts...and beyond.
    Hugs, Pat

  17. I've been reading your blog for quite sometime and I love it. I actually have your link on my friends list. But I promise no prompting people to visit. Congrats on your 475, I'm fast approaching 100!

  18. After living in an 'apron-free' zone for some time...I'm back on an apron kick...and would be most delighted to have an apron by Vee hanging in my kitchen. An apron to match my 'tea towel by Vee' would be just about perfect. But since I won your 200th post giveaway...you better leave my name out of the drawing (or have they forgotten that by now?). I think I better just get to work and sew up a few of those aprons that are on the drawing table!

    Congrats on all that fluff! I love it, my friend.

  28. well .. .how sweet is that? I like your approach on it is not how many my friends can bring for tea. . .as it is. . .please, friends stop for tea.
    I think that bloggers often lose the focus on why they blog .. .it is not about getting the popular vote, because of course we don't all agree with popular vote. ..it is about enjoying the eclectic mix of fluff and stuff in our own lives and the heart to share it with others.

  43. I just found your blog. I like it a lot.
    I love the blue, myself. Maybe a robin's egg or a real soft, pale blue.
    Love periwinkle, but only in clothes, not on a wall!
    I love the Swedish country look, too.

  45. I am not surprised Vee that you are nearly at the 500 mark. Every time I visit I can hardly keep up with you. Congrats. anyhow.

    Will be looking forward to seeing yur remodelled kitchen. Have no idea what I would want it I had a remodel. Not likely so don't think much about it. Probably shaker style in contrast to my present country style which is probably now out of date.
