Hooray! This has taken me most of the day... but we got there in the end!
This little brown bear is very nervous.
He likes to have company wherever he goes. By day he will fit snugly in your pocket, and by night he will be happy to sit on your nightstand or snuggle under a duvet... just so long as you are close by.
He is currently sitting in my little Etsy shop, waiting for someone to come and love him. Do pop by and say hello if you have the time, there are plenty more photos to see :) x
Apologies for the lack of posts recently.. I blame it all on the new technology that has entered this house.
We have just swapped our old computer which was on its knees for an Apple Mac, and boy am I confused!! Firstly I had to wait for the initial week of everyone being overcome with excitement at its arrival, and me not actually getting to even see it due to the sea of heads in front of the screen waiting to try it out.. and now they are back to school and work and I finally get to sit down and try and work it out .. well, frankly .. it scares the hell out of me!
So, please bear with me while I get to grips with modern technology!
I have a little hug of bears and other creatures sitting here optimistically, waiting to be introduced, but they will have to wait a little while whilst I make friends with the Apple Mac!!
Meet Beatrice, or Bea to her very close friends...
Bea has a taste for the finer things in life, and loves to surrounded by pretty things - especially linens and laces, silks and pretty ribbons. She is a fastidious type of bear, and likes nothing better than to take high tea at 4pm with her tea in a china cup and lightly buttered sandwiches. She also rather enjoys a spot of embroidery, daisy stitching being her particular favourite ;)
She is currently sitting in my Etsy shop hoping against all hope for a new home very soon. There are more photos of her over there, so if you get the chance do pop over and say hello :)
It's that time again ... Devon Open Studios from 8th to 23rd September.
I have been frantically working to get some bears in the gallery at Seale Hayne, so I thought I'd introduce you to to a couple of them... the big guy I really enjoyed making as I very rarely make bears this size.
and a sweet little pocket sized bear!
There are some other bears keeping them company whilst Open Studios takes place. If you get the chance please pop along and say hello :)
We are just back from a glorious five days on the Cornish coast. The weather stood by us amazingly well ... we managed to drive through several patches of lashing rain and come out the other side, and the living was good!
This photo was taken on Porthmeor beach at St Ives - one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen. I am now officially in love with St Ives!
So now, its back to the reality of desperate school shoe shopping, finding, washing and ironing school uniforms and hesitantly, if not a little thankfully, returning to routine ;)
I will be answering emails and catching up over the next few days... in amongst the huge piles of washing, ironing and unpacking.
So bring it on September, I am ready for the falling red leaves and the autumn sunshine :))))))
