Pink Wednesday and a Giveaway!

Oh happy day....a giveaway!! Yessiree, I'm giving away the bear in the cone to the right there. Bear, cone and the vintage goodies inside! It's Pink Wednesday so I thought it would be appropriate to include a sweet little dose of pink. I'm absolutely delighted to give this first of my holiday offerings away to some lucky someone out there in Blogland. All you have to do is leave a message on this post. Pretty simple. :o)

I have a very busy weekend ahead. My mom is coming for a follow-up doctor visit and I'm also taking a class with Lisa Kaus on Saturday. Unfortunately, I will miss the last Barn House event of the year. Boo hoo. I was lucky enough, however, to get a little sneaky peek last night and I have to say, if you haven't been to any of Joe and Jermonne's events try to make it to this last one. You will not be disappointed!! Jump on over to their blog for details.

Okay. That's all. Make it a fabulous weekend! Don't forget to leave a post to get in on the giveaway! I'll draw a name on Monday morning. Best wishes and warmest bear hugs, Aleta

Wahoo! I am the first comment! I don't think I have ever been the first. Happy Pink Wednesday! The bear is too cute!

Love, Britt

Aleta, I lurk often, but rarely comment. But in hopes of getting that cutie...I will comment. Please put my name in! Thanks.

And I would be number two in the comment department. I recently put you on my have-to-read blog list and I'm just especially lovin' your pink Wednesdays, Aleta. Pink, pink, pink, it's my fave too. I just mailed a box of fun pink this's and that's to my daughter who also loves pink. Oh, yes and a little monkey that goes "boeing, boeing" when you sit him down. How fun.

I read faithfully but don't comment very often! You can read my mind though right? You never fail to bring a smile to my face.

This bear is way too cute, and this is my first comment to your blog. I've been watching your post since you first started Mt Pleasant, and have enjoyed hearing all the details as you have been going on. Wishing you and your family happy/good thoughts.

Betty said...

Hi, Aleta!

I always LOVE your pink Wednesdays ... although I guess the current phrase is I HEART your pink Wednesdays .... lol!

I haven't see you since one of your great events up on the bluff, but guess what .... we will be in class together on Saturday! I, too, was a little discouraged not to be at the barn for Cindy and the boys, but we will have soooo much fun!

As much as I usually don't enter giveaways (I have so much stuff of my own!) please add me to the list of enthusiastic participants.

See you Saturday!

Betty :)
