Oh my...has the summer passed us already? Can you believe it? Here it is September and just around the corner, Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas! It really seems like I just enjoyed spring!
Today, I announced another Giveaway but not here! Sorry! This time I thought I'd post a Free Giveaway on my Facebook Fan Page so I would like to invite you over to enter for your chance to win one of my handcrafted vintage style Riding Bears along with some extra goodies!
This bear is approximately 4 1/2 inches by 4 inches and was created using a gorgeous vintage plum velveteen fabric which has been further "aged" for a very well worn look and feel! He is stuffed firmly with a mixture of vintage excelsior and uphosltery stuffing, his head is cotterpin jointed and he's got beautiful tiny German glass eyes.
The prize also includes a REPRODUCTION of a vintage photo from 1963 of a sweet little boy and his beloved toys...a gorgeous teddy which looks like it could be a beautiful old Steiff bear and a whimsical little giraffe who perhaps feels a wee bit left out being on the floor for the photo! On the back of the original photo which I own, there is some writing but it looks like it may be in German so I can't tell you what it says but I am including a copy of that with the photo I reproduced for you!
The winner of the draw will also recieve a vintage basic reading story book called "Little Bear" dated 1969.
For more details on how to enter the Free draw...head over to my
Facebook Fan Page! All you have to do is LIKE me...then you're in! Any problems just leave me a comment here and we'll fix it!
In the meantime, more bears are in the works! I'm hoping to have at least two themed teddies complete in time for Halloween and at least three bears completed in time for the Holidays! Wish me luck and have a happy September...thanks for visiting!
