Teddy Bears Picnic

Time for a picnic and today some tiny little painted teddies are coming along.  They are so small they will fit in my handbag.  A few years ago I used to go to Flemington Craft market on a fairly regular basis and I bought these dear little painted bears from a delightful lady called Bridget.  They are so sweet.

Share a Teddy Bear ( Softies welcome too)
Do you have a bear or a softie to bring on our picnic.  They can be big or little, home made or shop bought.  Everyone is welcome, just pop your details into Mr Linky.

Please Consider Helping

If you are an animal lover please consider supporting the Free The Bears Fund.  I do and it makes me feel good to know that I am helping to give the bears in various sanctuaries around the world a safe, peaceful and happy existence.

PS I just found out that my Once a Season Swap parcel arrived.  This is what I sent.
