Bear love ~

I'm constantly amazed at the generosity
expressed here in the land of blog!!!
Saturday a package arrived from a sweet blog reader
with a special surprise inside ~
a precious handmade bear!!!
It's made from a beautiful old quilt
with wear in just the right places...
Gretchen makes each and every one herself and sent me one as a gift!!

Well, you know where this little cub is going....
right on the bed to wait for our sweet Clara to play with.
I thought I would keep him here as a special friend
to play with when she visits!

Thank you so very much Gretchen, he's absolutely wonderful!!!
You can visit Gretchen's website at ~

Rebecca at Vintage Living is having a birthday giveaway!!!
~ Just click HERE to visit her blog and read all about it ~
There will be SEVEN winners too!!!

Can you even believe it's December 21st??? I believe we're finished shopping finally and now I just need to wrap a few more gifts. Clara's slowly getting better, thank you so much for your sweet prayers!! Hopefully by Christmas she'll be back to herself again ~

Wishing you a great Monday dear friends,
hugs and love,

Hi Dawn. It's wonderful to hear that Clara is on her way to getting well. Just in time for her first Christmas. Gretchen's bear is so cute. What a pleasant Christmas surprise for you. I'll have to go visit her website. Thanks for sharing Rebecca's giveaway with us because I'm going to head straight over there.

Hugs...Tracy :)

Aw, Dawn, he already looks much-loved! Clara's little hugs will make him even more so! What a sweet and thoughtful gift.

Hi Dawn:
Love your sweet little bear. What a great idea. I have just a piece of an original wedding ring quilt from when my husband and I were first married. Perhaps I'll have to incorporate it into something new - a new quilt or a little pillow - instead of saving it in a drawer. Your place is always so much fun to visit and so inspirational.
Glad to hear Clara is feeling better, too. We can all breathe easier for you, my friend.
Merry Christmas!

I'm thankful that your little Clara is doing well.

Happy Holidays.

Poor little Clara! I am praying for her to get well soon--that is so scary! I so know what you all have been going through--hope all of you get some rest! said...

Love your new bear & I am sure Clara will too! Have a wonderful week leading up to this special day! Hugs! Charlene
