MERRY CHRISTMAS to you all.......

Well the silly season has arrived yet again and everything goes crazy! Hopefully I'll get to do the tree and decorations this coming weekend. Going to be on our own this year as Simon&Teresa are in America and won't be home until late January and Samantha&Tony are spending time away too. No worries we will still enjoy ourselves and the dogs will too even if that means having to tolerate me dressing them up for photo shots!! 
Sending lots of wishes to you all for a good and enjoyable Christmas - have a good one!!

Leaving home........

Today 2 bears are leaving home - one is travelling all the way to America and a cold Winter! The other one is just going down to Sydney where is a little warm and humid!

Spirit of Christmas......


Jenkins squeezed himself in and got into the spirit of the silly season in his smart vest and cap! He didn't stay around for long before he was packed up and is now on his way to his new owner in the UK! I think he is going to be very thankful to be wearing his vest and cap cause it is so very cold over there brrrrrr!!

Departure lounge.......

It's been a busy week with many bears leaving home - so it was fun and games with boxes and packing! At the post shop a comment was made that it looked like Christmas had come early!!
Anyway, most of the bush fires are now under control but still no sign of rain and I've worn myself out doing the rain dance!! We've had a couple of bad storms which were all noise and very little action - few drops of rain which has done nothing really for the grass, trees and plants.

Ashley's left home.......

I said goodbye to this old guy yesterday as he is now on his way to Texas to a lady who is a devoted animal rescuer - goodonya I say!!
Oh it is a bit of a steamer today at 38 degrees and a hot wind blowing a little unusual and above average for this time of the year, Spring!! Not good for making bears or for that matter anything else!

We are on our way.......

I said goodbye to more bears yesterday - always have a little sad moment when I pack them off on their long journey and keep fingers crossed that they arrive safely!
Spring is certainly turning into a very warm one and we did get some rain but not very much and hardly noticeable!
I think I may have had a touch of food poisoning last week - couldn't keep anything down for about 2 days - felt really yuck!! It was either some Sushi that I had eaten or a coffee made with milk instead of soy. At the time I was trying a new coffee place in town and said to hubby that I thought the coffee wasn't right but couldn't be sure.
I'll ramble off now.......

Spring has sprung.......

Spring has sprung and it is looking like it is going to be hot one! Even the bush fires have started in a few areas down near to Sydney - think we are going to be in for a long hot Summer. Still very busy at bear central and I've been having fun and games with the dye pots!! I even managed to dye a couple of my sweaters with a few nicely decorative spots!!

Miss Amy is loving all this nice heat and spends most of her days outside soaking up those sun rays - we have to slip, slap and slop with the doggie sun block - otherwise we just might end up with a sizzled sausage!! I am forever chasing her back inside even though I get the daggers and 'we are not amused' looks - the things I have to put up with but it's for her own good! Miss Millie is much wiser and stays inside - much cooler - but then she can be such a goody two shoes when she thinks it is to her advantage LOL!!

I took some pics looking out over the garden and the Brimbin Forest reserve which more or less is my back yard as it is only at the end of my street.

We've left home......

Still busy as a bee at bear central and more bears waiting in the departure lounge to be sent on their way tomorrow! So a couple of big boxes for the postie to deal with when I go into town! They know me well now and usually ask how many bears this time!
I still live in hope of getting a new bear out there for the website/collectors but at the moment not holding my breath!! Though I enjoy very much working on my bears I do very occasionally have a crazy moment but haven't got to the stage of bouncing off the walls yet LOL!!

New Bears and a snake........

Still busy at Bear Central and we are still in the grips of Winter brrrrrr!! These guys are heading off overseas soon where I think they are going to feel right at home as it is nice and hot over there at the moment!
If you don't like snakes then look away now! This is a deadly baby Red Belly snake which we found dead in the garden and we think that the dogs may have killed it which is a scary thought in itself as they could have ended up down the vet's fighting for their lives!!

New Bear GRANVILLE.......

The bears are still busy ruling the roost but old guy Granville squeezed in and has put himself up for adoption:o)) One good thing about these bears ruling is that they keep me nice and cosy and warm on these very chilly Winter days:o))

New Bear Vincent..........


 This new bear only put in a short appearance before being snatched up and is now waiting in the departure room:o))
I thought I would show him off anyway as he is a pretty cute looking guy:o))
Hope you all have a good week too - bears rule! Well in this house they do along with the dogs!

Getting ready to leave home..........

Here we are getting ready to leave home and head off on our long journey to the UK - will be nice to leave these chilly parts but somehow don't think we will be hitting warmer times!!
Winter is rushing in pretty quick smart now - Winter dooner on the bed, pink slippers and woolly sweaters dragged out of retirement and the occasional burst of heat from the heater aarrhhh!!
Miss Amy has to wear one of her many doggie coats and spends most of the day chasing sun spots! Miss Millie likes the cooler days and is always up for a game of footie with her favourite ball - not at all ladylike is Millie LOL!

CECIL bear...............


New bear Cecil has been and gone! It is still very much a crazy house around here at the moment but a lot of fun even if I am having stressing out moments LOL!
Had a bit of trouble with some face cream -  my poor face had another allergic reaction - silly me shouldn't have been adventurous and tried something different  Luckily only a small jar and not too expensive. Won't try that one again! I think I may have the problem of suffering from a Winter skin because at the moment my face feels like I have washed it with soap! Dry, itchy and a little sore though that could be the lasting reaction to the crappy face cream I tried, big sighs!

About to leave home............

These guys will soon be setting off on their journey to the UK - dressed in their Winter woollies as I don't think it is quite warm enough over there at the moment. They are finding it a little chilly here now as we settle into Autumn with chilly evenings and mornings brrrrr!!

It's a busy time.......

It's a very busy time in the bear room at the moment and I think we are going to have to go into overtime mode and of course there are no pesky helpers around when you need them!! I've been training himself up in the art of stuffing bear bits as this is my least favourite job. Anyway, out of all this busyness up pops new bear Maggie ready for adoption.
I've only just got back from Sydney after spending a week with family and being dragged here there and everywhere - came back home for a rest LOL!!
I did take the bear box down with me BUT like before it never left the car ho-hummm!!

New oldie SIDNEY.......

This old guy Sidney is already adopted but he wanted me to show him off anyway as he thinks he looks pretty smart for an old guy:o))

Saturday, March 16, 2013

Leaving home.......

We are leaving home this week and heading for the UK. We've got our Winter woolies on knowing that we may just be shivering in our paws when we get there brrrrrr!!

Old Girl FLORENCE......

Let me introduce FLORENCE who is now ready for adoption. She is fully of old fashion charm and reckons she's not bad for an old girl:o))
At last the rain has stopped for how long is anyone's guess - it has been raining heavily non stop for 3 days! I had even started growing a very nice pair of webbed feet LOL!
Anyway, wishing you all a good week ahead:o))

Wishing you all a Happy Valentines day.........

New bear MARKUS.......

All is more or less back to normal weather wise - no more floods and no more heat waves. It is busy, busy in the bear room but Markus has managed to get himself all ready for adoption and looking very smart he is too!
I have 3 rabbits bouncing around the garden most mornings and they tend to give Millie and Amy a good work out - the girls haven't got a hope in hell of catching them:o)) I do think that the rabbits are escapees as 2 are brown and 1 is black and they come right up to the house.

New bear CLAUDIA........

The first new bear of the year - sort of - well I say sort of because I have been a busy bee behind the scenes working on orders but Claudia is the first bear of the year to be put up on my web page:o))
Today it is peeing with rain (may have to think about growing webbed feet if it keeps up!) and was doing the same yesterday which was for us Australia Day. I think the days of being roasted are over I hope! Much cooler now thank goodness but for those further north they are suffering from flooding and Tornadoes - weather has certainly gone crazy that's for sure!
Anyway, wishing you all a good weekend.......

The boss.........

Miss Amy taking a nana nap zzzzz! In other words asleep on the job!

Well another silly season has been and gone and all is more or less back to normal - though I'm not quite sure what that is at the moment! It's back to bear business with new thoughts and idea's and the first bear for the New Year making an appearance very soon, I hope!!
Already we are half way through this month
We have been suffering with heat waves and lots of bush fires around the country - we have been ok so far and the nearest bush fire was about 20km away - the other day they record a temp of 42.9 degrees for Taree the highest on record! You just didn't go outside unless you wanted to be sizzled! Most of the other days the temps were ranging from the high 20's to the high 30's phew!!

I got Millie to model a tea cosy that I made for my daughter!

 Pink (not as bright as in the pic) Dachs bookends which I got as a Chrissie pressie:o))

 We love posing........
