I'm The Winner!!

I was so excited when my name was drawn out of the Bell jar for the One Heart give away from Michelle of The Studio at Crow Haven Farm!! Plus.. not only was there one fabulous creation but FOUR!! Boy did I hit the jackpot! Thanks so much Michelle for creating these Fab Four Fun pieces!
Be sure and stop by her blog to see all the fun things she makes! Hey, has anyone else had trouble leaving comments on blogs? I've tried to leave comments on several of your blogs recently and when the word verifcation comes up , there are no letters, and I can't leave my comment. Very frustrating!

Thanks again Michelle, I feel like a grand Pirate with all my new booty! (I'm hiding it from Miss "P"..she's so jealous)!
Happy Hauntings, Gail

what a lucky girl you are! terrific goodies!

Yes, I've had the same problem with posting on a few sites. However, when people turn the word verification off, there's no problem. I believe that blogspot is going through some upgrading or downgrading or something. I know that my list of blog followers is very different than it used to be. Plus my music just disappeared completely one day.

I know the word verification is to stop spam - but have you ever had ANY spam on your blog? I've not had so much as an inappropriate remark! LOL

Congrats on your new treasures!

WTG how fun!!! I have noticed that, when people don't use the pop up comment box or page like yours and mine, I am unable to post a comment..I made sure I changed mine to the pop up..I haven't had any problems since..

WTG..what a cool prize!

You sure are a lucky girl!!! Michelle makes wonderful whimsey creations along with other sorts too:) She is as sweet as her stuff is:)
I have also had some problems with leaving comments maybe I should try the pop up comment box too?? and also shut off the word varification off.

Gail Lackey said...

Okay..glad to know it wasn't just me. I'm going to turn off the word verifcation thing too!

Thatsalotofneatstuff! Lucky You! What fun for you to open all those treasures!
I've had trouble with the word verification too. When there isn't a word there to copy, I try to send my comment anyway and then magically a word pops up to copy! Weird!

Lucky lady, you hit the jackpot!!

Word verification has been a problem on a few blogs recently. I thought maybe it was just me, but from reading your comments it seems to be system wide.

Have a great weekend Gail and thank you for sharing.

Yup, as others said, you're not the only one having issues. I just hit "post comment" at which point it tells me I can't....but then the word ver will appear.

Hi Gail...oh my I'm so glad that they arrive safely to your house. My computer crashed and I've been without that life line for over a week.eeeek.... I can't wait to get a new one! I think the devils over at the Sugarbeet factory has been getting into everyone's computer! LOL I've had major problems with the word verification, but I thought it was just my nasty computer ...I'm so glad it's not just me that has been having problems...I sure hope Blogspot gets the problem resolved. Are you still getting mail demons when emailing me? I'm just thrilled that you loved everything and I still have your name on the bell jar! hehehehe My regards to Miss "P"...she is going to be up to know good with her new little treasurers...LOL
Have a wonderful weekend and I will speak to you soon! Keep your fingers crossed for a new APPLE Computer!

Hi, I am creating a links list for my website and would like to include your entertaining blog, hope that's OK? Would it be OK to use the long thin image from your shop header please as it's the same shape as the other links and I'm lazy, pretty please? Yve :o)

wow!!! you lucky lucky girl! you got some awesome stuff.

the word verification happens to me sometimes too with it not there, I just type in my comment and hit post, usually it gives me a new verification with a actually word.
hope that helps!

Lucky you Gail to win Michelle's fabulous giveaway!

To answer your question I had the same problem and finally figured out what it was. For some reason some sites will not allow me to leave a message or at least type in the word verification if I am using the Safari Browser.
When I go to the same site on Firefox I have no issue. I don't know which browser you are using but maybe get Firefox and that might solve your problem.
