The Little Bear has Settled in to His New Home

I don't know about you but I have entered loads of giveaways on other peoples blogs and never won a thing. Well my luck changed in December when I won a giveaway on Soggibottoms blog.
Well he arrived here on Saturday after a long journey from England.

He had a good journey as he was nicely snuggled in a comfy box.

Getting used to his outside surroundings.

He is quite a sturdy little chap and ever so handsome. He is now living on the bookcase so he can see everything going on around him. I think Oliver has settled in just fine.

Lucky had a lovely surprise too, for also in the parcel was a small gift for her too. Lucky doesn't like her photo took so this is the best I could do.

She liked the yummy little bones, thanks Midge.
