The Keys to my Heart

O.K. girls. It's come to this...some good-old-fashioned-red-blooded-American bribery.

I am turning 50 on March 1 and it is my goal to reach 500 followers by my birthday. Are you willing to help me take this on? I thought so. Here's the poop: I have 4 fabulous skeleton keys to hand out for a giveaway. (These are not reproductions, they are the real deal.) I have strung them on festive ribbon just because I can.

On March 1, I will choose 4 names from all of the members of One Gal's Trashy Pals and each winner will get a key. If you are already a memeber of OGTP, never fear, your name will go in the hat as well. So let's get cracking, shall we? Please send my blog link to everyone you know...your sister, your mother, your BFF and even that stuck up beeeyotch from your yoga class.

Sign up over there

Thanks and xoxoxoxoxoxox

I will add it to my giveaway post! Don't send me a present though. I have far too much stuff already. Thanks for the thought.

CC said...

I would love to be entered for one of the keys. I have just the shadow box for it...and I'm already one of your followers.

Is one of them a key to your heart? That's the one I want to win...just kidding you! What fun...believe 50 ain't bad...it's after 56 that things start sliding south!

I'm going to put your link on my blog and suggest that all of my almost 50 followers sign up to follow you...although, I think a lot of my friends are your friends, too!

Happy soon to be 50!~

OXOXOXOXO

before i publish a post, do you mind if I copy the photo of the keys for the fun?

Sue (Vintage Rescue) said...

OK, Pam, i protest of Typepad (my host) not supporting a "follower" function, I've assiduously avoided following anyone. Your plea, a mere 13 months before I TURN 50, has caused me to break my software protest. You got it. You go girl. I'd better win! OXOXOXOXOXOX

Jane said...

From one 1960 gal to another (I turn 50 in June) I would love to follow you and help you achieve your goal!

This sounds like a fun idea! I will add my name to your followers to help you reach your goal. I'll also post your giveaway! By the way, I loved your post on Bill O'Riley, my Dad and Uncle think he's fabulous, personally I always thought he was a bit of a jerk, I am glad to have my suspicions confirmed! Good luck on your quest and I will be back to visit and see how it goes!

Why only 500? You know I'm already one of your long-time followers. Hmmm--I'm turning SIXTY this year. Does that mean I need to get 600 followers. Fat chance there. Good luck to you though--I have a feeling you'll make it!!!!
