The love of Teddy Bears

"I don't know why Granny is surprised"
Teddy Bears always give love and warm feelings every where they go.
We are good to cuddle and good listeners, always faithful... what else???

Well Granny has found that it is not only the Teddy Bears that show kindness and love. It is also the Teddy Bear makers.

We love reading all the teddy bear blogs and face book, then when the Postie arrives with a parcel from NY.. We nearly flipped our lid.

I opened the box and looked inside..

There were chocolates for us (well there were three) so I guess that is One for Granny and two for me. 
When we opened the box, who should pop out but the beautiful little statue of a very pretty bear doing a dance on top of a ball.
She was very clever because she was balancing a umbrella at the same time. 
Dear Cheryl from Bingle Bears sent it all the way to Australia because we won a give away.
Thank you Cheryl, we love our bear girl.
She is sitting in pride and place in the hall. 

Well last night was the finish of day light saving, so I was allowed to stay up one more hour. Whooppie.. I read books and played.
Then this morning instead of being dark when we got up it was light.

I thought I would show you sun rise over the wine district of McLaren Vale
Where Granny's daughter lives. It is very pretty.

Then for all the overseas readers, this is a picture of Sun Set. over Ayers Rock.
It really goes this colour.

To all my beautiful followers, these flowers are for you.

My Thought for the week.

  6. Congrats on winning such a beautiful price - and at least in Fluby's opinion your sharing method was the right one! ;O) Thank you for the beautiful sunset photos, the one of Ayers Rock seems to come out of another sphere.... and Granny's daughter lives in a lovely area.

  9. Hi Kay and Wilbur,

    Dit soort dingen zijn altijd van die
    mooie geluksmomenten.
    Geweldig dat jij de winnaar bent geworden
    van deze prachtige Give-Away.

    Heel spannend om zo'n pakje open te maken
    en te zien wat er allemaal in de doos zit.
    Het is een erg mooi beren beeldje.

    En ohhhhhh, Wilbur, de chocolade is natuurlijk
    heerlijk om te krijgen maar dan moet je het
    wel heel eerlijk met Oma delen hoor, foei!!!

    Wat is het toch FANTASTISCH mooi waar
    jullie wonen Kay, de natuur, de kleuren
    zo ruimtelijk allemaal.
    Sprookjesachtig kan je wel zeggen.

    Bedankt voor de mooie bloemen die je
    ons allemaal schenkt.

    Wens je een fijne week toe,


  10. Hallo Wilbur
    Herzlichen Glückwunsch zu dem schönen Gewinn!
    Liebe Grüße
