Soggibottom's Birthday Giveaway


The problem with a Soggibottom bear is that they can be trouble maker's.


They are always friendly.


They like to mix with their own kind.



They tend to climb on the furniture though, so you have to watch them carefully.
If you don't want them on your furniture, be firm. The command is DOWN.



If they climb up onto the fire place, them you have to tell them to CAREFULLY GET DOWN.


This little guy has spent quite a time playing around the cottage with toy cars.


Hiding in fir cones............

He is waiting for the giveaway that is open from now until December 7 th. 2010. 8 p.m. G.M.T.
He could be all yours if you leave a comment and if you haven't done so already join Amie Soto Blossom's list of friends.

This little fellow is quite happy to travel anywhere in the world, hopefully in time for Christmas.
It would be a sharing thing to let your own blogger's know he is around. I will check :-)

Why a Birthday giveaway ?
The cottage is 342 years old this year.
The day we moved into Soggibottom Cottage was December 7 th and my birthday.
Good luck....... x x x

I love that mischievous bear, looks like he's having lots of fun!

Been busy getting ready for Cowslip Workshops Christmas Fair.
It's a great place to visit for the next three days. Just head down the road to Launceston.

Enjoy all those special days.
Smiles, Angela.

I'm not sure I should really put my name down for a bear as we already have one - she's quite good at climbing on the furniture too, but we let her because it keeps her out of the dog's mouth....
All the best people are born in December obviously!! (Mine's the 15th!)

Sue Doran said...

I promise to keep this lovely little bear safe from Missy if I win, though I suspect he can look after himself. :-) I will also blog about it at the weekend, Friday's are busy-busy in our house!

QuiltSue said...

Happy everything to you, the cottage and the moving in day.

Полина said...

Melanie said...

He is utterly adorable Midge! Aww those paws and his face! I'd love him to join the hair bear bunch here. They are currently on the side in the craft room aghast at the mess in there all over the floor.

Making Christmas here in between redoing the bathroom.
