And The Winner Is!!

First of all, a heartfelt thank you to everyone posting such lovely notes for me. Honestly, all you really needed to do was leave your name. I do, so appreciate the sentiments. Really I do. I just don't want to get a swelled head or nuthin'. So, here's the deal: Next giveaway, you must leave the name of a character you dressed up as for Halloween! Oh wait, maybe some of you out there didn't dress up for Halloween! Hmmmm. Okay, let's say it should be a character you liked to dress up as when you were a child. There, I think that should cover everyone!

Okay, okay, okay! I'll get to the winners now. Geez Lousie!! The Grand Prize and winner of my Truly Silly Birthday Bear is.....#9 Theresa!! And in order of tickets drawn, the winners of lovely little things are......#21 Grace, #15 Samantha, #26 Draffin Bears, #23 Pam Lashley, #14 Elaine, and #25 Folksie Linda!!! Yay!!! Party hats, streamers and tootle horns!!! Girlies, please send me your mailing addresses!! You may go through the contact button on my website to leave your address.

Now, next on the agenda, The Lemonade Bear Benefit. If you feel so inclined, please skip on over to and take a peek at all the bears up for auction for such a worthwhile cause. You'll know they're bears for the benefit if they have Lemon or Lemonade in the title. I don't want you to skip over the bears that don't have this in their title, because there are some lovely bears there, I just want you to be able to tell which bears are for the benefit. A Little Silly, Sam, is there waiting to wave and wink at you to try to get you to bid. Give in. You know you want to!! *wink*

Another little sniglet of information......tomorrow is the Harvest Sale at Willow Nest!!! See the link over there to the left. I'll see you at 10am!!!

Have a super fabulous and wildly wonderful weekend!! Warmest bear hugs, Aleta

P.S. Yes, there will be a Halloween goodie giveaway in October!!!

Theresa girlie,
I've not received the information you sent. However, Hotmail left me a message today that they were updating my account. That always spells t.r.o.u.b.l.e!! I've enabled the e-mail button on my Profile page here so you can send your address that way. The link is over there to the left: I think it says View My Profile or some such thing. Crossing my fingers here!! We'll get this sorted out!!

Warmest bear hugs, Aleta
