A Bear from Texas, 2 Winners (and an Itty Bitty Giveaway).

30 Tiny Moments – Day 14

30 Tiny Moments - Day 14
“How sweet am I?”

A little bear arrived this morning, all the way from Texas. You may have seen ‘Teddy’ around before, he is a friend of OMSH. He used to live in this beautiful shop, now he’s in my messy diningroom, living on Great-Grandma’s side board (for now). He’s kind of quiet but, he seems happy enough. He’s smiling. We like him – A LOT.

Just wait until you see what was in the package for Georgia – TOO cute (coming soon).

Two FREE Sleep Huggers® Baby Sleeping Bags Winners are:

Winning Commenter: Little Mommy
Winning Link: Erin

Please email me: kim (at) mommyknows (dot) com to claim your prizes.

A new contest starts on Wednesday … Yeah!

However, just to keep things rolling, I’ll randomly draw one commenter from this post to win a pair of Bical Grippers (my favorite kids shoes). ‘Teddy’ is kind of a boring name. What do you think we should call our new bear?

    The bear shall be known as Patches.
    Because it’s a patchwork bear.

    How about “texas star”

    I have a vintage teddy made from an antique quilt. I love it!

  • bree February 11, 2008, 11:32 pm

    How about Billsby? or Tex? My husband says Jed. :)

  • Heather February 12, 2008, 4:59 am

    I say he should be named “scrappy” :)

  • Lucy February 12, 2008, 5:31 am

    The bear should be called Kaleidoscope

  • Amanda February 12, 2008, 5:53 am

    Okay – well there are no creative juices in me this morning at all so I just have to jump in and say I vote for witchypoo’s “Patches”.

  • Jamie February 12, 2008, 5:57 am

    I like Pete. Or Petey. I don’t know why.

    You could call him “Joe” or “JoeJoe” for Joseph’s Coat of many colors – looks like the pics that show up when you google “coat of many colors” – it is immediately what I thought of when I saw him. Patches is cute too. You would think as a TX girl I could come up with something whitty for a TX bear, but I really don’t have anything..Have a great day!

  • Kait February 12, 2008, 6:50 am

    Personally, I would call him Patch. My son loves his bicals (he has the pirate ones).

  • Safire February 12, 2008, 7:09 am

    Call him Austin for the city…or I really like jw4mkc’s Joe.

    I also like the suggestion of Patches. A very cute name for the colorful guy.

    BTW – I love your new header and the look. Can not remember if I mentioned that before. :)

    He looks like a Scrappy to me. Cutie!

  • Julie February 12, 2008, 8:00 am

    My first thought was, ‘Patches’, but since someone already picked that, how about ‘Teddy Blue’?

  • Laura February 12, 2008, 8:55 am

    I shall name him my favourite pet name ever: Sniff.
    (My cousin named her pet bird thus.)

  • Ashley S February 12, 2008, 9:31 am

    Are you sure he’s a he? I think to me it looks like a girl teddy bear and if she were I think she looks like an Allie. But if she really is a he than I agree with most everyone else on Patch.

  • Aileen February 12, 2008, 10:19 am

    I submit the name “Jolly” because how can you not look at/squeeze that adorable bear and feel happy?

    I also like Patches!! :)

    That bear is AWSOME-I want one! Can’t wait to see what Georgia got.

  • Kristian February 12, 2008, 10:49 am

    Oh and I vote for you calling him Cade, because a certain Cade that I know may just come over and walk off with him if your not careful :)

    I love the bear! My mother-in-law made me a small one out of a quilt that belonged to my aunt! The quilt was not in great shape. Cindi

    I was actually thinking Patches but whitchypoo beat me to it. How about Star for Texas.

    I also vote for Lucy’s Kaleidoscope because it would be fun to hear a 3 year old try to say Kaleidoscope. It’s cute I just had my niece say it.

    Bicals would be great to have for this summer. Just today, my niece was asking when summer would be here because it is taking too long and it’s been cold already too long. I agree!!

    Thanks for the comment. I *heart* NOLA too. You should check out Jacques-Imo’s the next time you are down that way. By far the best place we ate. A little crowded but aren’t all restaurants down there? You also have to walk through the kitchen to get to your table in the back. Bar is up front.

    Who says he has to be a he? I think you should call her Kallie :O)

    Ooooohhh…a smiling teddy bear. I like his/her smile. :) Hmmm…I don’t think I’ve ever seen a frowning teddy bear actually…

    What a cute bear! My daughter would call it Big Bear.
    Cause it was from Texas, how about Cowboy (boy?)or Lonestar. I also like it just Star.

  • Erin February 12, 2008, 4:34 pm

    I’m so excited, I wanted to win this one so bad!! Can’t wait to see what you have in store for everyone tomorrow!!!! Ps…I just sent an email off to you! :-)

  • Lisa February 12, 2008, 7:58 pm

    I would name him patch work. a bear that cute needs a last name too:)

  • Jenny M February 12, 2008, 10:04 pm

  • Susy-Q February 13, 2008, 6:32 am

    My favourite bear growing up was called “Scruffie”. He looked a lot scruffier than this one!

  • katie bowen February 13, 2008, 6:55 pm
