Guess what today is??















Well, Friday, of course, Hahaha... okay yes, but besides that?

This is ....

Happy blog day to me...

Happy blog day to me...

la, la, la...etc... tooooo mmmeeeeeee......

Oh, alright... I'll quit. Uncover your poor ears. Never could carry a tune; even in a bucket.

This is number 100. What?? already??! That can't be right!

Guess I have to own it ......... I am a total windbag. There , said it aloud (to nobody but me of course, cuz I am the only one sitting here at my computer). But, really... I am not always windy.... sometimes folks even wonder about me if I am new to them or to a situation. I tend to be pretty quiet until I get the lay of the land so to speak, or if I am trying to size things up before I jump right in with my comments, advice and opinions... but then, look out. I realize that I can be, and often am, a bit of a boat rocker and, sure, I will admit too... sometimes I am just a darn nuisance. So be it. That's me. We all have faults and foibles. Ya takes me or ya leaves me.

I also love fun ... love to give little gifties...but am not Pioneer Woman..so you won't be gettin' any $500 gift certificates here! I am definitely not backed by Sanyo or any other corporation.

However, in the spirit of the season and also in the same spirit as many bloggers .... I am having a little give-away of my own. Mostly just to enjoy myself ... but also to say thanks for the fun I have had in visiting many of your blogs. Also to say tx for stopping by to have a look at my blogs and the dolls and bears on the Picturetrail site. Comments are always fun to read aren't they? I enjoy them ..... here and on everybody else's blogs. There is a ton of info and participation out there.... boggling actually.










So, because I make bears of all kinds...and it is Christmas... I made a little needle felted polar type bear... with a very skinny little bottom (so that he can fit into this cute little sleigh). Now, he won't sit in it without help... as you can see here.... he is bit of a klutz... well, in all fairness to him, it is definitely a combination of that tiny bum and skinny edge to the sled ... ... hahahha and maybe his big snowshoes... er.... feet.











This was how he spent most of his photo shoot.

I'll stick him into it with a tiny bit of double sided tape. You can coax him to stay there in any way you like (or not). The sleigh itself is an ornament and has a golden cord which is attached to the sleigh at an odd spot...in the center, almost right between his legs...so unless he is stuck down... you can't really have him in it and hang it... but, perhaps you will want to use them separately anyway. A little gold satin stocking will be his cozy traveling home. Oh, and he will be wearing his little velvet hat with its jingle bell... and Buddy, the tiny cardinal, is coming along for the ride.

Leave a comment and I will put your name into the Christmas punch bowl ... sometime next week...somebody bobbing for cherries and floating names will attempt to choose a new home for Flurry. Just kidding... they will all go into a beautiful salad bowl and my bunny Alfie will nibble the one...no... still messin' with your head..... somebody honest and aboveboard will randomly choose a name.... .. but how can you believe a word I say??...I don't even have a bunny!













Never mind... my sweetie keeps me honest... he will do the draw.

Thanks for a fun few months on Blogger.... and tons of info on your blogs! I am NOT wishing you Merry Christmas til much later ... like,.... in December! Good grief! it is still only November. What a shame we have to do so much of this before the actual month. Ah well...in some cases, it is only because we are held hostage by the postal guys. I wrote a little ditty about that once... wonder where it is now? Must look for it.. yes... very appropriate.... as on and on she rambles.....zzzzzzzz

Oh for pete's sake, no wonder you don't have a bunny .they are probably as bad as dogs. I can't trust my dog for a minute .. I turn my back and he's leaving a comment on your blog. Congrats on your 100th posting, from one old windbag to another!

Hi Vee,

this is my patch said...

He is cute, I like skinny bottoms! I'd like to give him a home, but only one thing worries me, we don't get much snow over here in England, would he be OK to live on top of the freezer? x

Pauline said...

Warm wishes

Ohhh, Pick me! Pick me! This little bear is a dear. Seriously though, congrats on your 100th post. I am such a newbie, I didn't realize there were milestones such as this. It is now December, so Merry Christmas to you. Since I will be on an early holiday trip next week, you can just leave me a comment when I win. (Wink, Wink, Giggle,)

Tag, you are IT! I've been tagged and I tagged you. If you wish to play along, tag five others and then tell five things about yourself.

Vee ~ A Haven for Vee said...

Twenty-five comments? Just wow! :>

Have a great day!

BumbleVee said...

me too...I say WOW! and thanks everybody for dropping in to say hi and congrats. This was great fun.

I just knew I should have left tea and cookies out! Next time, for sure.. goodies for munching too.

Have a bit of busy-ness happening ...but will be back later with something... and will probably do the draw later tonight or tomorrow..so little Flurry can get away on his journey. He is all packed and eager to be off on his adventure.
