Adelaide Hills Doll and Bear show.

Doll and bear shows are such good fun.
I get to see lots of dolls and bears. 
Of course the dolls don't interest a boy bears.
Girl bears do!!!
Can you remember my friend Shirley. I know Shirley and she is sweet.
Another smaller bear that was pale pink called Joy,
Took a fancy to me.
She looked so happy and I think she was wishing Shirley would find a new Mum very quickly, and then there would be no competition.
Joy talked no stop. OH !!!! my ears are ringing.
I'm perplexed.. What does a boy do????
Well can you see another little girl bear in the picture, she was far, far to young.
Some times young kids get in the road a bit. Especially when you want to sweet talk.
Can you see Granny bought me a new pair of shoes to wear to the show.
From a lovely lady. Her shop is called WalkingCanvasPaintedShoes on facebook.
They were very comfy.

This is Shirley, Joy and the little kids Mum.
She is very clever at making bears.
Well you know what happens at bear and doll shows there is lots of pictures, so I won't bore you with lots of writing.
I just want to say these little dogs stayed in their kennel all day and didn't bark once.

Granny can't decide. Tipped or plain mohair.
A wonderful company called Teddy's Bits comes from New South Wales with all their mohair and things we need to make bears.
Not only do they bring a huge load of goods, they bring friendship and love as well.
This is some of the patterns they sell.

Now we come to some of the competition bears and dolls.

It was a lovely two days. I met lots of bears and Granny met lots of her friends.
On the way home we stopped to take some pictures of the Autumn leaves.
Wow!!! was that post sharp to sit on?
Ah!!! this is better. I do love Autumn leaves.

Granny made me toast with peanut butter and honey on for supper with a very large mug of hot chocolate.
I'm off to bed and I am too tired for a story tonight.
See you all next week.

to my new followers and my loyal followers.
The last roses before winter.
Welcome Guzel Kostyna
Guzel makes the most lovely little bears.
You need to go and look at Simone's bears they are beautiful.

My thought for the day.

"God gave us a memory
so we can enjoy a Rose in winter."


  1. so grandios, so wonderful

    thank you for the pictures

    regards from sylvia

  2. Hi Wilbur,

    Love those new shoes! My, my, you sure do attract the girlie bears, and I am certain that Joy had a case of the talkies because she was so excited to meet you - bet she has a crush on you.

    Thank you for sharing all those bee-u-tee-ful pictures of the bears, animals and dolls.

    Heaps of Hugs, (to Granny too)
    Prudence ♥

  3. We did have fun together at the show, didn't we? Joy was still talking about it when we got home, so finally our Mum (Nana Kayzy) put her to bed in another room to give us a rest from all that chatter. I hope you have a good rest tonight too, Wilbur, and please look after Granny tomorrow - she is precious to us all. Hugs from your friend Shirley.

  4. Hey Wilbur, new SHOES!!! They are so smart. We're not surprised that you had lots of admirers. Just don't make Prudence jealous. Or maybe that's what you want to do?

  6. Wow, Wilbur, you're a true womanizer... and with your new sneakers you're looking cooler and more handsome than ever... Looks like you've had fun days at the fair, meeting old friends and making new ones, that's how it should go. And thank you very much for this beautiful saying... we'll keep that in our memory! ;O)

  7. Well we like your new shoes, but silly Granny buying summer shoes in the Autumn! Send them to us though, 'cos it's nearly summer here so we could break them in for you...

    We reckon you need to go with the one that doesn't talk all the time, sheesh!

  8. Wat een prachtige serie foto's om allemaal te bekijken Kay, wat zullen je genoten hebben op de beurs. Het is zo mooi alle veschillendenstijlen van werken te bekijken.
    Het zijn allemaal schoonheden!!!

    En wat heb je prachtige schoenen van Oma gekregen Wilbur, daar zal je menig vrouwelijk beertje het hart mee sneller hebben doen kloppen.

    Wat een FANTASTISCHE Rozen Kay, die kleur wowww.

    Wens je een mooie nieuwe week toe,


  9. Dearest Kay,
    It would be really hard to label the prize winners at that doll and bear show. So much talent being shown at one place.

  10. Sweet new shoes, colorful autumn leaves and pink roses, perfection, nothing more needs to be added. Have a lovely week, Kay:)

  11. It is no surprise all the girls fall in love with you so fast. A good looking bear like you with your new shoes is a heartbreaker of course.
    Thanks for all those nice photos and the wonderful thought of the day!
    PS: Your little guy left me on last Thursday but till now I couldn´t find the time to write you. The last thing I send to Australia traveled nearly four weeks to his new home. So Wilbur, can you please give your new friend one of your honey toasts if he arrives you? I think he will be very hungry after this long time in the box!

  12. Hello dear Kay and Wilbur!
    What a nice show you visited! guess you are excited and happy:)
    this is so funny that we are having spring and you are having autumn...:)
    I love autumn leaves too:)

  13. Hi Kay and Wilbur,

    Thank you for sharing the show photos with us - loved seeing all the gorgeous dolls and bears. You must have had a great time there. Like the new shoes too, very lucky having a pair with your name on them.
    Also love the pretty pink rose.
    Happy Sunday
