Babushka bears !!

It has been on my to do list for a long time to make a set of Babushka bears. I just love the Babushka dolls especially the older more rustic ones.

One of my friends has a few sets of quite old Russian dolls dressed in simple peasant style clothing. One of these sets was my inspiration for my Babushka bears.

This is the set of  3 Babushkas.  I just loved there simplicity (excuse the photo it was taken on my phone).
Below is my version ( in bear form ) of these gorgeous girls. Hope you like them they are 2 1/2",2" and 1 1/2"

In case you missed it click on the link further down my page to participate in The Little Leaf  blog giveaway he is a beautiful little panda. I know I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

A Tribute to the 1960's

Does anyone remember the 1960's Troll dolls. I do, and I just love them.

My Grandmother used to collect them I guess in that way I take after her I love all things Ugly cute. I can remember we used to buy her a new Troll every Birthday, Mothers day and Christmas. Her collection was massive she had Trolls in every size and style imaginable it extended into every room.

I came across one of her smaller ones at my mothers a couple of months ago and it inspired me to create my Troll bears. This is my tribute to one the 1960's classics and my Beautiful Nana also a classic. I know she will be looking down at them with a smile, hope you like them too.

The Countdown has started !!

Time to dust off the decorations, check the bulbs in the lights and fluff the tree the countdown is on and it won't be long.

We need to get out the Christmas card list and check it twice, tick off the present list and see who's been naughty or nice because Santa is not far away.

Order the Christmas ham, prawns and turkey, check that there's enough gas in the barbie. Stock up on the usual assortment of nibbles and please don't forget a treat for Rover and Tiddles.

Practice your Carols and your Jolliest HO HO because there is not a lot of sleeps to go. So if your like me and work best under pressure pop over any time and check my Days to Go measure.

Introducing the Bush Nymphs !!

Life has been quite hectic since my last blog. I have been busy trying to get myself organised to travel to Victoria to attend theWoodend show on the 31st of Oct.

This will be the first time I have attended this show, getting more and more excited as it gets closer.

I found these frogs a couple of weeks ago in a small Newsagency and just had to buy them. I loved them so much I bought all they had. I could just see a Snugglepot and Cuddlepie kind of a bear on them. Sooo cute!! I thought I would share a sneak peak with you of the 2 new bears I have made using my frogs.

They are called  Bush Nymphs.There names are Angophora and Callistemon. Hope you like them.
