I WON! I WON!

A few months ago, I did a blog post about a fantastic blog by a gifted artist in England, called Silkie Sue. Sam does illustrations for greeting cards and children's books, and she makes stuffed animals!  Anyone who knows me well knows how much I adore stuffed animals.  They have always been real to me.

She's had a couple of contests for her blog readers this year. If we linked her to our blogs, we were entered in a drawing to win one of her amazing creations, and I JUST FOUND OUT THAT I WON!!!

This is sweet Mouse, who is packing his bag and obtaining his Visa to move to my home in Washington State!  Isn't he ADORABLE???
Thank you so much Sam!!!  I am honoured to be chosen as the adoptive parent for Mouse and I assure you, he will be loved and cared for in his new forever home.

  7. Well done!

    I like the old fashioned sewing machine your new mouse is resting on too. My mother had one like that. She probably inherited it herself.

  9. Congratulations! I pop over to her blog from time to time, but as you know, my one attempt to have a favourites link list was fatal. All my pictures got chopped in half!

    Now I can't even remember how to do it.
