I've Got Mail

I love mail! Packages addressed to me just Make My Day!
Today's package was special. Not only was it for me (my favorite kind) - but it went to help a good cause (one of Mom's favorite things)

This one clearly was for me.

Although I needed a little help with the bubble wrap!

IT'S A CRAB! Mom found it on the etsy site HELP THE GULF COAST

A number of etsy artisans are donating their work to help raise funds for The National Wildlife Federation and OxFam America - and their response to the disaster in the Gulf Coast. This beauty was orderd through Handmade Louisiana and is from the shop of Natalie Fontane at Scriverner's Retreat. Check out their sites for more information.

I haven't figured out what to name this guy (and yes, all my stuffies are named). Any ideas?

Woof! Woof! Great crabby toy for a good cause. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

JackDaddy said...

You should name it BARC!!

(which is crab spelled backwards!)

Wow! How very cool and a great cause! I'm not real good with names...but I am sure you will receive some fun suggestions :)

Hugs and snaggle-tooth kisses,

Very cute! We are going to have to check the their stuff out - we love Etsy! I don't have any good name suggestions, though!


Emma Rose said...

That is very cool! How about Big Red? Or Louie?

Thanks for mentioning us (Handmade Louisiana) I'm so glad the puppy loves his toy.

Ok so a local radio station is running some commercials about the oil spill. They are funny and they are calling the oil spill (Olly the Oil Spill)
Here's my favorite.

I say you name him Olly. :)

Too cute of a post!!! Thanks so much for your help and support of the Oil Spill. I just got back from doing some assessments of the shorelines of a few barrier islands. Thankfully where I was, I didn't see a lot of oil!

"Louie", Rex says. Definitely Louie. Good on ya, Mom for helpin' out the folks along the coast.

I noticed that Scriveners Retreat, has a great selection of toys for pets. She has several which have been donated to Handmade Louisiana, to benefit nonprofit groups working to reduce the impact of the Gulf Oil Spill. What a great thing is that!

Oh my gosh, that is the best idea and it is so cute! You and your Mom are awesome to help Miss Abbey.

I'm glad your pupster likes the crab I made. It's a little football-shaped, so maybe he'd like to play a squeaky game of catch with it.

Hmm a little hot drawn butter and I am all over that crab.
