Since Last Time

 
 
Time for a little update on
what´s been on since last time.
 
After getting home from the UK and getting
back to work, a few days went, and we went down with a cold.
both of us. First me - fortunately only for a few days. Then there was a
lovely family weekend visit and then Mr. Tinybear went down
a few days too.
Things are lightening up and we back to our normal self - sort of..
 
anyway
 
I managed to squeeze in a teeny little visit to
the flea in between.
 
 
This is some very pretty linen pieces I found
The one down in the left hand corner is a vintage handkerchief
still in it´s original wrapping. How cool is that.
 
 
 
Everything in this photo (above) is listed
in my shop in the Flea Market Section

 
beautiful embroidered pieces to create with.
I haven´t decided what to use them for yet, or if I´m going to list them - hmmm

 
old fichermans tools.
Wouldn´t they be pretty with lace wrapped on them.

 
lace pieces, crochet lace pieces, an old embroidered samppler,
and a box with vintage christmas ornaments.
 
Remember the french thread I
found some time ago.
 
I´ve finally managed to list some  that.
You can find them here

 
A bunch of cool vintage book covers have arrived a the studio.
Pretty booksmarks are in the making
and hopefully I´ll soon have some time to make
some journals and altered books too.
It´s on my to do list.

 
as for the bears.
 
All the little ones that came home with me
from the fair in London have
found new loving homes.
 
New ones are in the making too.
A bunch will soon leave the studio for
The Bear Scout in the US
for the fall and winter shows.
 
It´s a busy time in the studio right now.
I love that
and are so very grateful too.
 
Wishing you all a beautiful weekend

Back Home

 
from a wonderful show in London
and a awesome vacation in UK.
 
The show went very well and a lot
of the bears found new homes.
Thank you so much to everyone who visited.
It was so much fun meeting up with collectors
and fellow bear makers.
Unfortenately I don´t have any photos from the show
but I do have some from the rest of my trip
so I hope you´ll enjoy a little peak into my trip
 
 
 
the most amazing  and beautiful pub
along the way to Notting Hill

 
Kensington Farmers Market

 
The weather was so beautiful and sunny while we were there.
 

 
The Serpentine Lake in Hyde Park

 
Doves in a row in Hyde Park

 
The para olympics ended, all the UK  participants
went on Parade and were celebrated
by the Royal Air Force.
 
After a few days in London we went
for Cambridge

 
We stayed here

 
went walking in the countryside


 
Punting on the River Cam


 
Visited the Kings College

 
and their amazing Chapel

 
and eated out at Jamies

 
A little peak inside the restaurant.

brought back
some new fabric and some awesome vintage
mohair for new bears.

 
A few bears came home with me
and will be available on my website soon.
 
We had such a wonderful time in the UK.
One of my favorite countries to visit.
 
Now it´s time to get back to reality :-)
