Did'nt i have a lovely day...

The day we went to the bear fair!!
Yes yesterday we went to one of the most important events on my calendar...the winter bearfest at kensington town hall...

The show is held twice a year...feb & september. If you have never been & love bears it is a must.
There are bear artists from all over the world,such talented clever people & sooooo much to see!!
And of course it is impossible to come home empty handed....this year nicky from the vintage magpie had a stand with all her wonderful vintage magpie critters.
You can find out more about the hugglet fairs here
Look who came home with me....please let me introduce 'roddy' by one of my favourite artists Gail Thornton of Bisson bears.
You will have heard me talk about gail's bears before,they are just simply wonderful...i have six now & intend to add more!!
Isnt he just gorgeous?

Roddy is one of a kind with wonderful airbrush detailing & very heavy in weight...perfect!

Gail's bears always have the most wonderful they have a soul.

Roddy did,nt come with his scarf & i dont normally accessorise my bears at all..but i found this little 100% alpaca scarf in these lovely colours that seemed to suit him so well & of course keep him nice & snug!

Here is roddy with his brothers...all my bissons are boys.

From the left back row is: charlie,ernest,albus.
From front left: oscar,roddy & wilbur.
The most scrummy faces...

Do you see what i mean about their eyes?

& the attention to detail.

I cant help it i am MAD about teddy bears!!

Sorry for my lack of posts last week it was such a busy one,here there & everywhere!!
It has been a lovely sunny day here today,i even managed to get some sweeping up down outside...all those dead soggy leaves.
Thankyou to gemma who adopted 'mathilda'...all my other little critters on my previous post are still available for adoption.
Have a super week everyone. xx
