True Colours Thursday - MAUVE!

Today, I am going to introduce Sunday.
Here she is cosily dressed in her MAUVE cardigan clutching a box of her favourite chocolates, she does share...Now, her start in life was not so comfortable.
Mother first encountered Sunday's identical cousins & maybe even her, piled high in a cardboard box and on sale in a Sainsburys supermarket, as Mothering Sunday presents, hence the name...She was sure, they would all quickly find loving homes because they were the softest, softest bears she had ever encountered, their fur being almost as delicate as a Chinchilla's, which you apparently can barely feel when touched!
Anyway, Mothers Day 2007 came & went.
The following week, much to Mother's surprise, she came across Sunday, already abandoned & languishing in Oxfam's charity shop.
She wondered what sort of mother gave her away her gift so quickly!!!
And, scooped Sunday up and brought her home.
Hug introductions to Blue Bonnet, Chester, Ollie, Blueberry, Mitch, Barney & Little Precious followed...Sunday settled in well, but complained of the cold, so her Pink ribbon was exchanged for the MAUVE babies coat.
When Miss Polly Pola arrived, Sunday mothered her straight away.
They are still very close and read fairy tales together...So, Sunday's story has a happy ending, like my own.

Hi Woodstock,
Sunday is beary pretty! My mom is surprised your mum could resist her on her first encounter. So glad she rescued her from the charity shop, she seem a great addition to your hug.

Our Buffy looks beary much like Sunday. Buffy has an ivory bow. She was a gift from Brother T., but she wasn't a Mother's Day bear, she was a just because bear.
