Granny and I went to the play ground this morning and we were so surprised when we could hear sobbing coming from one of the little cubby houses. We went over to see what it was and there sitting in the door way was a little black golly. I felt so, so sorry for that little chap, and asked him his name. All we heard was sob, sob, sniff, sniff. Wedried his eyes and I put my arms around him, and told him not to worryI would be his friend, and we would try and find his Mom.
Granny got on her phone and no luck at all. So we said to the golly ( because we didn't know his name) "would you like to play .".
We went to the swings, He was all upset so I let him sit on my lap to have a swing.
Hang on tight Golly, Granny will wizz us."Only go slowly Granny I don't want him frightened."
This rocky horse was better not so scary.
Granny was watching from the bench and her heart took a leap when Golly got up on the fort first, and was reaching down to give me a help up.
We sat up there talking for ages, he was telling me how sad he was because he knew he was left at the playground because no body wanted him. I was telling him about where I lived and about my snugly bead, and my toast and peanut butter. Golly said because he was black the thing he liked on toast was Vegemite.
He told me he was very hungry.
Then I ran over to Granny and asked if he could come and live with us. I said I didn't mind if we had to share a bed. I just couldn't let Golly sleep outside one more night.
Granny said Yes.
So I went over to a tree and sat down and told Golly to climb up on my back and I would give him a piggy back all the way home. I had Peanut paste on toast and Golly had vegemite on toast. I will show you another day. We just want to go to bed and talk.
See you all next week.
Big Surprises in a post package.
Thank you so much Marie Christine from One Toe Bears.
I was the very, very lucky winner of her valentine Give Away.
We opened that parcel and what do you think we found?
The most darling little bear with a big pink heart saying he loved us.
Tears were flowing down Granny's face. We quickly got him out of that box he had to travel all over the sea in. All the way from Holland.
When we got him out guess what there was more. Lovely luscious raspberry mohair and some ultra suede,
That's not all there is MORE a beautiful necklace with the Eiffel tower on and a charm.
Granny could not believe how lucky we were.
Thank you so much Marie-Christine.xxxxxx big Hugs from Australia.

My thought for the week: "Peace is seeing a sunset and knowing who to thank."
He loves to take cakes and cookies to his friends.
Cookie Crumble is 20cm tall and is made out of a very soft pale grey alpaca. He has been sculpted with scissors and needle to get his facial expression. His bright shinning black glass eyes, with whites, look into your heart. His little button nose has been embroidered, waxed and shone.
His paw pads are made of ultra suede and his body is filled with glass beads and poly fill.
He can move his arms and legs as well as his head., being 5 way jointed, with cotter pin , bolts and lock nuts.
He is looking for a mum who bakes cakes.

I would love all my friends to join me for a garden party for Valentines day.
To all the people who live in the Northern hemisphere; come and join us, we are basking in the sun.
DA, DA!!! can you remember the blood sweat and tears I put into sanding this heart for Granny. Well here it is. I thought I would show you all before I wrapped it up. I know she will love it.
Guess what, I am sooooo, sooo excited the postmen came with a letter addressed to me. It must be special because it came by air mail, and it had a little bear holding a heart on the out side.
Wow!! some one loves me.....xxxx The card has a big polar bear on it with lots of hearts (Swoon) of all different colours. My little heart is going boom diddy, boom, diddy boom boom boom. Who is it from?
I can't believe it; it is from my dearest friend Prudence. She is the sweetest bear that ever there was, fancy sending me a valentines day card. I will put it under my pillow and dream about her. Thanks Prudence.xx
I think if I jump in a pretty red bag, and tell Granny I love her with all of ME!!!!! do you think she would like it? I would have my little parcel to give her at the bottom of the bag for a SURPRISE,
I want all the people who read my story to know how much I love them. This is smooches from me, just for you.
I picked this rose as a present from me, especially for you.
All this excitement is making me tired, Early to bed with peanut butter on toast for supper.
Please Granny will you get my card from Prudence I need to have beautiful dreams!

My thought for the week To love a person is to learn the song that is in their heart, and sing it to them when they have forgotten.
My blog was recently tagged by a dear friend, Maddy Rose, who has the delightfully and warm blog, featuring her wonderful paper mache'.( Santa and the Mrs. )with the Liebster blog award. Liebster is German for favorite. This award is given to blogs with less than 200 followers. I'm supposed to list the names of five blogs I follow that have less than 200 followers and it hasn't been easy. I've finally settled on the five that are listed below.
Can you remember we made these hearts last week. WELL Dear Maddy Rose from the blog Santa and the Mrs. gave Granny the recipe, and she must be better than me, because the sanding is driving me nuts.... did you hear me nuts...
Maddy Rose must be such a patient person how does she sand all those Santa's that she makes.
Then I had to paint my smooth heart. The other two I will just call rustic heart. (Now there is nothing wrong with rustic hearts they love just as well. Well I say they do.)
After it was dry, I painted glue all over it, then sprinkled it with Sugar.... NO, NO, I was only joking.The ants would have a lovely picnic if I put sugar on it. It is crystallised glass. So it looks like sugar.
Now to choose a ribbon. Oh dear I hope Granny doesn't mind me getting her ribbons in a mess. I will say the next door neighbours cat did it. Well for the final thing you will have to wait. I have a few more touches to put on it before I show you my final art work.
I feel like a milk shake that I had last week. "Granny can I please have a green milk shake." She shouts back
"No Wilbur the milk is getting low, you will want it saved for your hot chocolate tonight." As if she knows what I wan't. I wan't a milk shake now. "Granny can I have 1/2 a milk shake." " No Wilbur, did you hear me we are short of milk." She is being very hard to get on with at the moment, especially when I have been working so hard. "Granny can I please have a 1/4 of a milk shake" "OK if that will stop you pestering me."
All that work for a 1/4 of a milk shake.
Can't wait for the full glass of hot chocolate tonight.
Of course the peanut butter as well.
See you all next week.

I'm being naughty because Granny didn't give me a big milk shake. Our thought for the day is:...
Making mohair artist bears is a real passion of mine. I love the challenge of designing and seeing the face of a bear that I love. I also really enjoy teaching and giving others the joy of creating a bear they have made themselves. Mohair, Alpaca and real Mink is what I enjoy working with. I use only the top quality fabric.The fun then starts deciding how to dress them to bring out the true character of the bear.I do hope you enjoy my little creations and come back to visit and see what new bear I have created.
See my bears on Etsy.
