I Want to Adopt a Teddy Bear

6 November 2008 35 comments

Mariuca is celebrating Mariuca's 2nd Birthday with a special blogoversary contest where she is offering an adorable Mariuca Teddy Bear to one lucky Mariucan! :)

The special name I have chosen for Mariuca's Teddy Bear is "Little M"
My reason for wanting Little M is that I believe I can give this adorable Teddy a wonderful life with lots of mates and good Aussie love and caring....
I have created this slideshow to show what sort of life Little M would have if I am lucky enough to win...
This would be a typical day in Little M's life over here in OZ...

thank you to Charlotte for taking the photos

    Well I know that surely I am not the first!!

    I am never the first anywhere!!

    Marzie always travels at the speed of light!!

    Am I the first?

  • Jackie 7.11.08

    Oh dear the suspense is killing me. But, as I am awake when you are sleeping on the other side....I really don't expect to be first.

    But, a visit here is always fun for any reason!!

    Hugs and more hugs!!:-)))

    your slideshow is adorable. Looks like you had fun making it!

  • Anonymous 7.11.08

    You and Charlotte are just too cute.
    I absolutely had to stumble the photos. Besides that, I believe that you would be the bestest Mum. I can see Charlotte taking the bear out on walks, to the beach, with the both of them sharing Candy Cane together.

    I have my fingers, toes and eyeballs crossed for you to win the contest, too!

  • Kim 7.11.08

    Teddy at the Computer...yes that's the one! LOL LOL

    I'm here for some plain old fashioned support and fun...Wow..with this slide show..I lucked out! Too Cute!

  • Anonymous 7.11.08

    Thanks for the 100 ECs, m'Dear, except that I don't have an account there anymore. It was removed because didn't do something I was supposed to do according to the rule makers so my acct got dropped. (I never understood the significance of it anyway but thank you anyway.

    Now that the elections are over, you'll see me hanging around much more. I still have both of your blogs in my reader and keep up with what's new here at laketrees. You're one of my homegirls, Girly. Like I mentioned, I've just been extremely distracted with the elections plus with the website's new look. It's going to change again except it's going to be modified with the same theme and have a 2nd column added for the widgets I want to use on it.

    Much love to you and yours, Chicklet

  • Kim 7.11.08
