" We must be ready!" states Edward

Mossy helps him put the letter in place.

" Push it higher Mossy!" demands Edward
" I am pushing " growls Mossy " Try pulling"

The little bears pause for a rest
"" Edward wheezes
" I'm ...only"states a worn out Mossy

 " Oh No! look its wonky! " exclaims Edward
" It's fine " Mossy quickly reassures him, not wanting to have to move the heavy letters about any more!!

A voice beside them says " Paige! Thats my name"

" Edward! Edward! " calls Mossy shaking the little Panda who appears to have fainted

" Is he ok?" asks the little girl " Did he just faint?"

Edward who was coming round states " I most certainly did not faint....I only had five bamboo sandwiches for lunch not nearly enough for a Panda! I was just dizzy for a moment...hunger you know"
" He Fainted" declares Mossy grinning " Fainted.. a girl...."

Before it turns into a fight the little girl says " Did you put my name up ? you did ! Thank you that is such a nice welcome to my new home." She smiles down at the little bears, they fall under her spell.
" Now one of you is my special friend...let me guess..."
The little bears wait Mossy thinking he may be in with a chance and Edward worried she'd pick Mossy!"
" Well I am sure it must be you little Panda for I have always loved Panda's"
Edward is relieved while Mossy grumbles about the luck of Panda's....

Paige helps Edward to the chair so he can have a rest after his 'dizzy'spell.

" What are you doing Edward?" asks Paige puzzled as Edward stands close to her feet.
" We are to have our photo taken" says Edward proudly " Mum always take photo's of her Sasha's and Gregor's on the day they arrive"

Mossy starts grumbling from the back " Thats right take their photo, while I stand here alone and homeless..uncared for...abandoned....after all the hard work I did carrying them great big letters...."
Paige looks back and giggles " You are not homeless, you live here in this home and I care about you"
Edward Rolls his eyes and without turning says " Mossy stop your moaning and come and be in the photo"

After only a tiny bit of jostling the bears settle down and have their picture taken with Paige.
" Mossy what are you doing?" asks mum " why are you staring into the camera that way?"
" Shhh I'm calling MY little miss home! "
" Really?" asks mum getting excited " Can you tell if she's coming?"
Mossy just smiled and continued to stare into the camera........


Yes I finally have my 1969 Redhead Dungarees very happy Sashaphile
Now I will tell you how It came to pass........

Well before Christmas I saw a couple of Redheads on Shelly's site , The above girl was one of them. As soon as I saw her I fell in love but she was way out of my price range and christmas was coming so no way could I even think about trying to get her.....But....when I saw her a name popped into my head which I was surprised by because when this has happened to me before I have alway got the Sasha/Gregor and although I loved the name I did not feel that it fitted her, she struck me as a young sasha about five years old and that name would suit an older looking Sasha.

Anyway a few months passed and christmas came and went and I looked on shelly's site and noticed that she had been reduced in price but still a dream away.
But I decided to sell my Harlequin to restart my red fund with a boost ! Then like it always happens I started to think  that Harlequin was looking very nice and did I truely want to sell her....when fate snuck in the window!

I receive an email from Ellen Church saying that I should sell my Harlequin if I had made the decision and I would not regret doing so when I finally had that 69 redhead in my hands and by the way she was selling just such a girl on Shellys site and here was her picture.Now there were two dungaree girls on shelly's...
Well the picture was the above girl...fate..the very one I had set my heart on!

I thought about it overnight and then took the plunge and asked for her to be put on layaway while I sold everything but the kitchen sink to bring her home.

And that very night when I went to bed my mind rejected the name I had first thought of and settled on the second one that had been vying with the first.

 Things got in my outfit here! a pair of shoes there! ( for my clan not myself I might add) an expensive bill for my car service in January and finally making the decision to sell another couple of my sasha's so that I could widen my collection.

So I would like to thank Ellen for giving me the resolve to stay the course and achieve my aim her name is  PAIGE SHE IS A 1969 RED HAIRED DUNGAREES GIRL AND SHE'S MY 69 RED

Ps I have been dropping clues through my blog...the white letters that make up her name...did you wonder about them???
