I have mixed feelings about doing this, but in my heart I think it's the best solution all around.
I opened a box from a dear distant relative (whom I've never met) and inside were these two, brand new darling bears. She and I have exchanged Christmas gifts for eleven years now. The thing is, these are different from what she normaly sends.
I don't collect anything, especialy dolls or bears or anything cute.
I'd be an art collector if I could afford it, but I can't.
So after gazing in these sweet eyes for a couple of weeks I thought the right thing to do would be to have a regift-a-way and have the winner reimburse me for the postage. You get two collectible bears for the cost of shipping and I don't have a heavy heart from shoving these cuties in a drawer when they should be proudly displayed.
They are Bearington Bears. Look at her face! Her dress is more of a Christmas green, not this dull green in the photo. They come complete with a stand with the tags still attached.
Look at this little cutie in his cable knit sweater!
What little girl (or big girl collector) wouldn't love these?
I can't help that I'm missing that gene! :)
Think of who you have on your list who would be thrilled to open this package on Christmas day. I will draw the name of one lucky winner on Sunday, Dec 4th.
I'm only allowing those of you who already visit me to enter this.
That's my small gift to you, my loyal friends. (Whom I haven't been so loyal to these days, sorry.)
I know how giveaways can ooze into the blogosphere and everyone comes a runnin'!
Sorry, friends only Good luck everyone!
I just want these bears to have a wonderful, loving home.
If she had sent me a puppy or kitten there would NOT be a giveaway ;)
