Welcome My Special Guest

Today My Blog gets a special visit. BEAR-iuca from Mariuca's Perfume Gallery who is bringing his spirit, and now he is having fun to visit Mariuca's friends around the world.

I also would love to bring BEAR-iuca visiting my daughter's Blog. I hope he will have fun there playing around with all the Mermaid's stuff.


Once upon a time, in a land far, far away, there lived a powerful Genie Princess named Mariuca who was known throughout the land as the friendliest, most popular blogger in the blogosphere kingdom. Adored and admired by international visitors and commentators from around the world, the Genie Princess travels the blogosphere on her magical flying carpet, always looking for ways to share her good fortune with others.

Over the past two years of blogging, Mariuca has met so many new people, from all walks of life and all over the world, each one bringing a little of their culture and lifestyle when they visit and comment on Mariuca's two sites. So on her 2nd Blog Anniversary, Mariuca wanted to celebrate with all of her international blogosphere buddies by hosting a bear-naming contests at Wishing On A Falling Star and Mariuca's Perfume Gallery and to pass her two lucky, cuddly teddy bears along to the winners who came up with the best names.

On the opposite side of the world, from the moment Roxy (the prolific Roxiticus Desperate Housewives blogger) and her sweet daughters London and Maddie saw the teddy in his personalized t-shirt and blue muffler at Wishing On A Falling Star, they knew that he needed to come to live with their family in Mendham, NJ. The three New Jersey girls named him immediately and burst into a wonderful song for BEAR-iuca:

BEAR-iuca, BEAR-iuca, amazing teddy cheer.
BEAR-iuca, BEAR-iuca, we'd love you to come live here!

Mariuca received 16 possible names for the Mariuca Teddy Bear, making it hard for the Genie Princess to choose just one…then Alakazam! A bolt of lightning delivered the perfect way to share BEAR-iuca's good fortune to bloggers around the globe. While the soft, stuffed, cuddly BEAR-iuca is on his way to live with Roxy, London, Maddie and Rex in the Roxiticus Valley, the Spirit of BEAR-iuca is racing through the blogosphere to bring happiness, holiday cheer, and beary best wishes to everyone who welcomes him into their online home and passes along the BEAR-iuca good luck charm to ten friends.

Please play along with us by following a few important rules:

1. Add your site(s) to the list once you have received the Spirit of BEAR-iuca badge of teddy bear cheer.
2. Pass along the Spirit of BEAR-iuca and his cheery badge to as many people as you like.
3. Leave a comment HERE once you've passed on the Spirit of BEAR-iuca.
4. Once Roxy and the Genie Princess have visited your site to make sure your links are complete and proper, you will then be added to the Master List.
4. To ensure everyone receives equal link benefit, please UPDATE your list regularly!

At the same time I'm also interested to join MPG Teddy Bear Contest that is holding by MPG.

Several reasons why I would love to bring this special un-named Bear, because I really want her to have a special and best name that is given special from me, so I can bring her home and she can be mine forever and ever as a representative of the friendship symbol between Mariuca and Fida Abbott. Well, I can not wait to hug her and show everybody here how cute she is.

And now, I think the best name I would like to give her is Pinca Bear. Pinca comes from 2 words, Pinky and Mariuca. Pinky is because she has the pink color and Mariuca is because it has its mark on her white T-shirt, showed the original of the owner's name. So, I think I have had a perfect name for her already, PINCA BEAR.

What am I doing right now?
