The BIG DAY has arrived and the JUDGE will be choosing the names from one of Dad's hat's at noon Iowa time.  We are so excited to see who wins our MYSTERY BOX but what we are more excited about is how everyone here on blogville and even beyond came together for our furfriend Benny....that just goes to show you folks that there are still people out there that take care of one another.

Here is the Peach Jam that we added to the box yesterday AND

Here is the last item we are adding to our box
Remember the Queen Anne's Lace bowl ...well this is a little pitcher that goes on the wall as a decoration.  We wanted to keep it but Mom said NO it had to go in the box.  One of Mom's good friends donated to our cause.  Just remember folks you have until NOON today to buy a raffle ticket.  Lady Caroline left me a message that her Mom also bought a ticket so we now have $240.00 raised.  Bless everyone's heart! 

As far as the last mystery gift well ...this is what didn't arrive at our house yet.  So we will have to send that out later to the winner.  We thought we had better tell what it is cos we don't want you to think its a really big item but it is more of a personal item.  It is an autographed picture of ME--STELLA ROSE.  We thought we would have it back from the developer place but we don't...sigh........See you back this afternoon.
Stella Rose


  1. All the gifts are so wonderful and to think the winner will have their very own picture of Stella Rose. That is just "off the chain." I am so glad we all love Benny and all the many fur babies.
