A Pug, A Pig and Raffles!!!

Not much going on at our house folks
cause Mom is sick so I am just
hanging out with my piggy friend
there are some more exciting raffles going on to help
Over at
The Three Little Pugs
our good friend Stella Rose is celebrating
her Gotcha Day by filling up an
and raffling it off to help Benny
Read on to find all about it

 Mom and I thought and thought and thought all weekend about what we need to do to help Benny, Lily and their Momma and we came up with a IOWA MYSTERY BOX.  See Saturday is my gotcha day and we decided to celebrate this by filling up this box with items ONLY found here in IOWA and mostly items from the LOCAL ARTISANS.  Did you know we live in VAN BUREN COUNTY IOWA and if you read Midwest Magazine we are often featured in it as a great place to go and relax, AND do a little shopping.  We have 7 villages with lots of local what the heck...we are asking them to donate an item to our mystery box and we will send it with us taking care of the shipping.  We are so sorry our friends that do not live in the USA cannot participate cos of the shipping cost.

Each day we will give you a peek into what item we have added to the box and some info about the artist.  Sometimes it will be a little item ...sometimes a bigger item.  Sometimes we will have a big story ...sometimes a little story.  We are raffling this box off at $10.00 and your name will go into a hat, and MOM said I Could pick the name out since it is my gotcha day present.  Folks, it will be well worth the $10.00!  So, put your starbucks money up for the week, and keep your treat monies handy and bid on this box for our friend Benny!

You can send the money to FUND ME at Benny page, or send Stella's Mom an email at simpson_long AT yahoo DOT com letting her know you will be sending her the money directly.  We are going to be picking the winner on August 23rd ....stay tuned
 Stella gave us a peak at the first item yesterday!
