Name that Bear Contest & Birthday Goodies in the Mail

I have to tell you about this wonderful giveaway in blogland. Traci from York Mountain Mercantile is having a name that bear contest on her selling blog. You can get up to 5 chances to win this wonderful teddy. Contest ends on April 19th so hurry on over. Click on the link above to visit her. While you're at it, check out her regular blog too. You can find her here.

On to the goodies!! I ordered a couple things from Traci & they arrived yesterday. In the box was this little ditty bag with a Birthday card & some jelly beans. You see~I had ordered myself a Birthday present from Traci.

This was also in my package. The picture is not too great, but it is an old fashioned railroad ticket. It has the destination, starting point, mailing date, estimated arrival date, conductors (Traci's) signature & a few other things on it. It is a wonderful keepsake to go with my present.

These are my two presents to myself. I bought Traci's wonderful penny pillow & SEB bear. I fell in love with SEB as soon as I saw him, but was hoping someone else would snatch him up. You see, I'm not a bear kind of girl. I love prim rabbits. I kept checking & hoping he was adopted, but day after day he called to me. Finally I decided he was meant to be mine. OMG, he is perfect!!!
So much better here than in his portrait. I will treasure him always. No old trunk for him!!

Thank you so much Traci!! Your work is fabulous!!

Have a wonderful day friends!!
I need to turn off my computer! I'll be working on my giveaway goodie today & hopefully will finish it.

I know what you mean ..i got a giggle just reading about your bear, i did the same thing a few months ago...I was never a bear person..My first choice was always weathered rabbits...BUT i took one look at my Elam bear on Tammy's website and thought how sweet & unique...then when she posted him for adoption on her Etsy... i felt i just had to offer him my home.. been in love ever since ;0). Your bear is absolutely charming! a wonderful birthday present. & that penny pillow is primtastic!
Lovely gifts for such a sweet birthday gal.
I hope you had a wonderful day my birthday sister!
