Davy for Rose

I found out about little Rose via Little Cotton Rabbits.

I also so want to help. And I would love you to help so that it ends up as WE HELP ROSE. Wouldn’t you hope for a support and some sort of participation from others if that would be your child in Rose’s place? I would. It doesn’t necessarily need to be something big – £1 from one and each of you reading this post could end up in a round and very much appreciated, even more so needed sum of money that could very likely make a real difference to at least 4 people, that’s the Willcocks family. If you can – participate: spread the word, donate…

As my participation I’ve got Davy, a sweet little mohair teddy. He stands at 12.5cm or 4.9inches tall and comes in a small wooden box along with some felt goodies: a tiny snail called Slow (Davy’s best friend), a Christmas tree, a party hat and some yummy sugar coated doughnuts with a bottle of milk (teddies favourite comfort food 😉 ) that fits in a handy basket. Davy can sit, move his little arms and legs + comes with a hand knitted hat and a scarf to keep him warm. There’s one more item, not shown, that will come in the box – a little surprise!

Davy is up for an auction here. And he will go to the person who offers the highest bid by 11pm 22/11/2007. Use the comments bellow for your offers. All proceeds will go to the Rose fund.


Here he’s, ready for a big mission with devoted friend Slow by his side:



ready to party:


ready to be your friend:


+ that handy basket:


All of it can be yours, or a present for somebody…

Thank you for taking your time, HUGE THANKS to those who want to help and good luck!
