Mittagong Doll & Bear Show

It's that time of the year again the Mittagong show is on this Sunday 6th Nov at the Mittagong RSL Auditorium.

Sadly I won't make it this year (grumble grumble) hate missing out.

This is a great show with loads of good Doll and Bear artists for collectors and plenty of supplies for the makers.
I strongly advise you pop along and check it out for yourselves as I think it is one of the last shows for this year.

"Scary" Christmas is way too close. :0}

Woodend Show

Feeling pretty Bummed today !! I should be on a road trip right now with my friend Raewyn heading to the Woodend bear show tomorrow. Unfortunately health issues have prevented me from attending (sigh).

I guess I should try and look at it from the bright side.. Hmmmm!! Nope can't find one :o((

Anyway Hi and Hugs to all who are attending ( traders and collectors ) and I hope you have a Great day ( she says with a grimace on her face).

If you have never been or are tossing up whether you should go or not "You Should" it's a Fantabulous show with a great atmosphere and an abundance of world class Artists. Well worth the effort.

Ok ( she says with a sigh ) I'm going now to wallow in my own self pity for a bit longer, see you all there next year.

Great Day at Habberfield

 I taught a workshop at The Art of Teddy Bears in Habberfield on Saturday and had the best day.
Even though Melissa has only been in the new shop for a couple of weeks it's a pleasure to be in.
The building itself is heritage and oozes charm, and with Melissa's sense of flair for decorating it's a real Aladdin's cave of treasures.
If you haven't had a chance to visit yet you should call in and have a look around. Check out the up and coming Workshops, buy supplies or find that special gift you have been looking for.
 I know you won't leave empty handed  :o)

Life has been quite hectic the last few weeks at the Parker household not giving me much time to blog.While I have a rare quiet minute I thought it was time I introduced you to my newest Grandbaby Annabelle ( Gingernut ).

These photos were taken when she was only a few hours old she is now nearly 7 weeks. I just love the head full of Ginger hair.
As all 5 of them ( parents and 3 children ) have been staying with us since she was born so I get plenty of opportunities for cuddles...just love them even at 3am.

The Sounds of Silence

Don't get me wrong I love my Family Dearly but I am enjoying the Peace and Tranquillity VERY much :0)

Suppose I had better explain my Daughter and Grandson (who share the house with me) and my Mother (who lives 10 minutes away) left late yesterday for 10 days in Tassie. This morning I have woken up to a Beautiful Sunny day and Silence...can't wipe the smile off my face :0)))

I know I will miss them (my daughter especially at dinner time.. I hate cooking) and 10 days is long enough not to see them and snuggle with my special little man but for now I am soaking in all Peace and Quiet and enjoying my own company. Ahhhhhhhh!!!!! Bliss.

I'm off now to sit out the back with a cup of tea and listen to the birds,then I'm going to start rearranging the house.
