Oh No! Oh Dear!!

Oh No! Oh Dear! What a dreadful, forgetful person I am!! In all my excitement to share my weekend of fun with Linda from Lilly Cottage, I forgot one of the most important things! The lovely Linda spoiled me with a wonderful late 'bear-thday' surprise!


Linda brought me a new member for my Tag Along Teddies Bear Hug - her name is Pearl and isn't she a sweet, genteel looking little bear!! She has already found a comfy spot to curl up in the spare room with Jimmy, the celluloid doll that belonged to my grandmother, then my mother. And if she gets a little sleepy, she can rest her furry head on the heart cushion beside her. Pearl is just GORGEOUS! Her dress is a pretty ivory with tea-dyed lace on the bodice and luscious lace for the skirt. Her pretty look is finished off with a dusty pink flower headband and a sting of pearls - what more could a girly bear ask for! Thank you sooooooo much, Linda! Pearl was a lovely surprise gift and a welcome addition to the ever-growing Tag Along Teddies family! Tee! Hee! Hee!

And speaking of expanding the Tag Along Teddies family ... there's been a new listing on the Adoption page of my web site. Her name is Dorothy.


Of course, she is known to her friends at "Dotty"! Tee! Hee! Hee! And just like the magic shoes worn by that 'other' Dorothy in "The Wizard of Oz", Dorothy is made from a gorgeous deep, ruby red fabric that has been sprinkled with dainty white dots. Like her movie namesake, this little Dorothy looked like she was ready for an adventure, and what better adventure for a girl to have than a SHOPPING expedition. So ... Dorothy is dressed in her finest lace collar and pearl brooch and has a jaunty flower behind her ear and her trusty pretty-but-practical handbag ready to stash her new treasures - although, the boxes at her feet look like she's already had a head start! A bear after my own heart! Tee! Hee! Hee!

Like the other shabby chic bears, Dorothy has volunteered to be adopted out to a loving home to spread teddy love and bear hugs, so visit her and her sisters on the Adoption page of my web site.

And speaking of adventures ... I don't have time for any today, because I just heard my washing machine go "BEEP!" to tell me I have to hang out the clothes, so ... "Hi ho, hi ho, it's off to work I go ..." Tee! Hee! Hee! Whether you're enjoying adventures or slogging away at home, have a BEARY good day!! Til next time, Bear Hugs!

CHEERS!

Hi Lovie,
Oh look, I miss blogging for a couple of days and you go and post several times and now I am behind on all your weekend news.

Sounds like you and Linda and respective partners have had a wonderful weekend. Oh how I wish I was there too. Your violet tea trio is really pretty and Dorothy is to die for - I bet she gets adopted real soon.

Chat soon,
Hugs,
Kerryanne

Hi Kris,
I wish I knew about the fair, I might have been able to up for a visit too. I do have the Gympie one earmarked as it falls on the same weekend as my birthday. Pearl is just beautiful and Dorothy is so cute. I too am trying to do the housework in between catching up with everyone so I had better get back to it.
Cheers Linda
