Wilbur is besotted with Love at the Doll and Teddy show.
Saturday and Sunday I went to the Onkaparinga Teddy and Doll show.
I found my true love.
Her name is Shirley. I have met Shirley before. Can you remember she stayed at my house for a little while when her mum was away.
Well I haven't seen her for months and months and there she was sitting on a table to be sold.
I had to beg her mum so much NOT to SELL her. It nearly broke my heart for her to go to a home that was not near me. I have become very, very fond of Shirley.
You know the feeling!!!!! Your heart skips a beat and you think you have never seen such love and beauty inside and out before.
I can tell you I had the best day sitting with Shirley making sure she wasn't sold.
There were lots of stalls, so I will scroll down some pictures for you to have a look at.
Below is a picture of Granny's friend Kay from Kayzy's Critters and Granny's bears Kay's Kids.
They often share a stall because they are mates.
This is a new bear Granny just finished called Cream puff. I must say I could eat a cream puff, but not that one.
This is a great koala, His name is Kenneth.
These are the best dolls and bear in show. Wow they have a trophy as well.
This Polar Bear was very nice it was won by Wendy Lammings
Granny says Congratulations Wendy.
This is a few more bears in the competition.
We were so pleased to have Teddy's Bit's come all the way from N.S.W. Granny was able to buy lots of things from her to make Teddy's with. So lots more bears will be made from Granny's fingers.
Valma, the owner of Teddy's Bits was so helpful to new bear makers, and especially to Granny.
There were some pretty dolls.
Now these little fairies are very special, Granny went nutty over them. They are called " Earth Angels" by Margaret Leonard.
I know there are a lot of pictures, but I thought you just might like a look.
Especially of Shirley.
I am tired and Granny has let me have my toast, peanut butter and honey in the lounge by the fire.
I will go to bed and dream about Shirley.
See you all next week.
Granny picked this rose from her garden for all of her followers.
We love hearing from you all, and thanks for reading about my friend SHIRLEY.
Thought for the week.
"Absence is to love, what wind is to fire;
It extinguishes the small, and inflames the great."
