Cold Feet....

because I got my socks blessed right off today!  Remember that darling Teddy that my dear friend Midge was giving away to celebrate her birthday?  Guess who won?

Yep, lil' ol' me.  I opened this delicious parcel that came Royal Mail and my heart was instantly captivated.  Do you know I have never owned a teddy bear?  And now I have one made by the sweetest and most talented bear artist ever!

And look at the card, it's Midge's puppy Freya Rose Blossom!  That has to be the cutest card ever!  Oh Teddy, you have stolen my heart completely.

He's completely jointed, and oh so tiny -

He likes to sit here and look at himself, or else his favorite mum -

to keep up with her doings, you know.  Along with the rest of the Soggibottom gang...

Midge, he's making himself right at home, we're having lots of fun getting to know each other and he sends you hugs!  Hugs to Freya and Frankie de Tabby too!  Thank you darling girl!

But that's not all.  Oh no.  A big box came also....

My darling friend Kelly from I Have A Notion had a give-away as well, and I won that!  I almost fainted when she emailed me, and almost fainted again when it came this morning!  Talk about a stuffed box....

It quite takes one's breath away, doesn't it?  Have you been to Kelly's store?  I guarantee you'll not find better customer service!  And if you're thinking of making a purchase of some new gadget, you'd better go read her reviews - she does a fabulous job of making sure things work, lets you know if this is something you need or not, she's so real and honest.  I just love her!  I've purchased from her myself, and I highly recommend her.  Kelly, thank you so much, I love everything in my box and I still haven't caught my breath!

Of course, Ted had to inspect everything too...

And he quite approved.

One more thing.  I'm almost done with the give-away gift for our December link-up.  A snack mat and mug rug, just have to finish the binding on the mug rug....

DSC04901    2

I was going to do that tonight, the boys are going to a hockey game and I'll have no interruptions.  Instead, I'm going to read the books from Kelly!  Binding can wait when there's excellent reading material!

And now, Ted and I are off to have tea - see you soon!
