A visit to various shops in St Ives on Saturday proved a great success. A rather worn but lovely old silver bowl with lion head handles (the roses are from my garden), crochet mats and a pre-printed tablecloth with lots of very lovely embroidery thread. The thread is very useful for all our embroidered bear clothing and Megan will definitely find a use for the fine linen tablecloth.
Whilst visiting Stratford some weeks ago I found this small bronze hare named Blossom and I just could not resist this purchase, a sort of wedding anniversary gift to myself. The start of a new collection I think as she has various other siblings all named after flowers.
Several bears off to new homes and I have managed to complete some of my other little naked bears. I should have pictures to share by the end of the week.
Have a good week.
If all the beasts were gone, men would die from a great loneliness of spirit, for whatever happens to the beasts also happens to the man. All things are connected. Whatever befalls the Earth befalls the sons of the Earth. ~Chief Seattle of the Suquamish Tribe, letter to President Franklin Pierce
