What a beautiful, beautiful story and so brilliantly told! I think I might need to save my pennies for one of your lovely creations!

You old softie, such a beautiful story you had me reeled in hook, line and sinker. If I had any pennies I would have bought the pair straight away to keep them together. They are truly beautiful bears and worth every penny Nicki. Hope they go to the right home.

This was such a lovely post with such evocative pictures. Have you thought of doing a book using your bears and rabbits as models? Thank you for such a beautiful story.

Oh I do hope they are allowed to stay together. Will you tell us the next installment of their story? perhaps if they go to different homes they could meet up once a year for jam sandwiches and cockles on the seafront at Morecombe.. t.x

Are those hang tags from primters? They make the best cards to use for business purposes of all types!


And now my comment to say that was such a cute, quick little story with the pictures that you should make it into a little book just the way it is! : )


C'est tout à fait Magnifique ...
Quelle poésie dans ces photos !
En couleurs ou en noir et blanc !!
Wonderful pictures in colors or white and white ...

I always knew that Frank was a hero. I hope they will be very happy together!


What wonderful vignettes. They remind me of the book, The Lonely Doll. Have you seen it? I just posted some scans at


I think your sewing days could move aside whilst you pen a book about this adorable couple...
