Show's Over....Time For A Holiday!

Phew the Show is over for another year.  Here's a piccy of Lisa (Olive Grove Primitives, we shared a table) with a few of my critters.  We had a lovely time catching up with friends we haven't seen for awhile & making new ones.  I finally got to meet the lovely Tatyana, a fellow blogger.  It's so nice to finally put a face to someone that I've been trying to meet for awhile (the weather kept interfering with our plans to meet)!  Three of my critters were adopted & I got to sell a lot of my vintage bits & pieces so I was very happy!

This is Alison, another friend we hadn't seen for awhile.  She was there with her divine creations (if I wasn't going on hols this week I would have taken one home)!  She made the most divine little pug dogs & if that wasn't enough you should have seen her cute little pig!  By the time I took this photo she had sold them!  If you didn't get to the show you can see her in the current edition of Australian Bear Creations.  I have bought the mag but I'm not going to read it until I get on the plane!  

Right I'm off to clean the house, looks like a tornado has been through it!

Have a great week!
PS Just have to show you this adorable little guy, he belongs to Rosemary (Vintage Sisters) & was made by Whendi of Whendi's Bears.  Rosemary kindly let us have a loan of him for the day but I tell you it was hard handing him back!!

Two New Ellies

 These are my latest ellies I'm finishing off for this weekends show.  The top one I've made from viscose & she is sitting in a little cigar box that I've embellished.
This little one with the spotty ears is made from sparse mohair.  I found the cute little enamel cup in an antique shop.  Just need to grubby her up a bit & then she'll be ready.  It really is a lot of work getting ready for a show, never mind next week I get to fly to New Zealand for my grandson's first birthday so I can relax then!

Hope to see some of you at the Doll & Bear Show at the RNA Showground, Gregory Tce, Brisbane, Saturday & Sunday, doors open 9.30am!

New Bear & Bear Show

This is Annie, one of my latest creations.  I've dressed her in a grubby little vintage dolls dress that I found in an op shop in Atlanta last year & a very old baby jacket.  I found the jacket at a lovely little vintage shop in a small town called Esk when we were on our way to the Bear Show in Toowoomba last month. 
I'm slowly finishing off all my critters for Winter Wonderland this coming Saturday & Sunday at the RNA Showgrounds in Brisbane.  I love starting new projects but finishing them off is a bit of a chore!

Don't you just love the little vintage baby sandals, they are just the cutest.  I will be selling these (if I can bring myself to part with them) & some cute little vintage baby dresses.

Hope you can come, it's the biggest Bear & Doll Show in Brisbane!

Lots of Gorgeous Antique Lace....

These are some of the antique lace pieces I picked up at Collectorama on Saturday but I'm especially loving the little Gladstone bag I picked up from the lovely Wendy!  It's so cute and is only about 13" across.  I thought it would make a great prop for the Winter Wonderland Doll & Bear Show which is in Brisbane in 2 weeks time.  This is Lucy, she's one of my bears who will be coming with me to the show.

I am pleased to report that even though it rained on Saturday I had a fantastic day & managed to sell a lot of my stock!

I hope you've all had a fantastic weekend!
