Around the House

I hope your Christmas was full of everything wonderful! 

Around our house, every day is exciting with lots of Kitty adventures, new bears being born and hugs and cuddles galore!

Above, wee Katrina helps me compute next to boxes waiting to be filled with Christmas goodies!

The front door has its holiday finery on!

The window ledge behind my kitchen
sink is filled with wonderful miniature animals.

A new little polar bear is completed to be part of a holiday decoration exchange with my good friends.

Rocky enjoys life in the light of the tree.

Christmas gifts are relished! My beautiful bunny hand knit by Kim is a joy!

Ichabod poses for me to try out my new iPhone camera!

Dear friends Susan and Bill send flowers for my birthday!

And there are plenty of cat naps to enjoy after all the fun!

Happy New Year from my home to yours!

Happy Christmas!

Just looking through files and found this Christmas photo made several years ago when I was making big-er bears. Now they are all smaller than wee Dibley who is sitting high on the Christmas box. I think creativity takes us in different directions when we let it. Can't wait to see what happens next!! I have a couple of photos of what are Christmas gifts this year that I'll put up after they are received - so I won't spoil surprises ..... just in case someone is watching!!

The Happiest of Holidays to all!! with much Love - thanks for visiting!!

Beautiful knitting!

Kim has just finished this beautiful shawl. I think her photograph is wonderful! She used branches of a recently bare sweet gum tree to hold her work. Vanessa, soon to be recipient of this lovely wrap, will be thrilled, I'll bet!

Teddy Bear Toss

This time of year, hockey teams sometime have what's called a "Teddy Toss" where fans attending the game toss teddy bears onto the ice. The toys are then collected and given to children in the community for Christmas. Well, the Florida Everblades did that tradition one better! They wore teddy bear Jerseys and socks which were auctioned off after the game to raise money for charity.

Cyber Shot Camera Play with a New Panda Bunny!

Just finished up an order for little Panda Bunny - Lilly! My Nikon is still ailing and so I used my Cyber Shot together with my iPhone to make a few photo to send to the prospective new Mom.

A gift from Jason last year, the Sony Cyber shot is amazing!! It's used with the iPhone and a specific App for the purpose. You can send the photo immediately after it's taken via the phone. The app has some basic editing features so I was able to crop out most of my wrinkly old fingers!!

The clarity and detail is amazing!! If the collector who ordered this little "Lilly" decides against adoption at this time, I shall put her in my Etsy shop. She's a sweetie! 
This little lady will be going to live with her new Mom in Illinois and her new given name is "Popsy" - isn't that cute!!!
