A Blog Give Away!

I promised you a surprise a while back...well here it is!  Now I have to tell you I am a bit late on getting it done, because as usual I am behind. 

I know I haven't done a blog give away for a while but I have mixed emotions about them to be honest.  The last one I had, the person who ended up winning had just raved about how much she loved it in her comment to the post, and then when she won she never claimed it.  I waited several weeks and tried to contact her numerous ways.  So I felt rather embarrassed and foolish, I had worked really hard on it.  And after all that time had passed, I didn't know what to do with the piece.  So as you can imagine I wasn't in a big hurry to try it again.

On the other side of the fence, I know what it's like to enter a blog give away and want the piece sooooooo bad.  Then to not win and have no other way to get one like it.  There was a Christmas bear a few years ago I wanted more than anything and that was what happened.  I would have happily bought one like it but there wasn't one for sale.  So in case I am not alone in feeling that way, I have made a second mouse...Boo is available on my website at

On to the details!

Caution is 4 1/2 inches tall, he is hand stitched of African mohair, hand dyed, and has glass eyes.  He will arrive in a ceramic pumpkin with his spooky little sign that says "Caution."  (He is really friendly and not at all scary though.)

To enter you must post about it on your blog, leave me a comment with a link to your post, (just one comment please) and be a follower of my blog.  International readers are welcome to enter too.  A couple give away pieces have gone overseas before!  That's it, and you will have a chance to win my little Halloween mousey!  Easy huh!

The winner will be chosen by randomizer on October 25th at 11:59 PM MST. 

Good luck!   Hugs, K. <3

I can't believe someone wouldn't claim one of your giveaways, they're always for really cool stuff... or, in the case of Caution, really adorable stuff!

He's Soooo cute! Sadly, I don't have a blog of my own (though my bear, Trumble has one of his own and his own email addy!) so I can't join in, but I hope he finds a wonderful home. Little sweetie!
