These are the last few bears ready to go to Beaulieu Bear Fair on Sunday, I am really looking forward to the show, the weather forecast looks good so there should be lots of visitors, there are lots of bear related things going on throughout the village, a great day out especially for the children. This is Dolly, I thought I would try something different, I am really pleased with her, it will be good to see what comments I get about her.

This is my entry into 'A Great British Summer' competition which will be judged on the day, fingers crossed the judges like mine!

I haven't yet named this Bear, I always find this the hardest part, she is wearing a lovely vintage embroidery englaise dress and wears a pink silk ribbon on her head (any ideas of a name?)

Ah don't they look good together? I'm quite tempted to keep these 2 for myself!

This one I air brushed although the picture doesn't show it very well, he has some on his paws and around his eyes and muzzle, he is also waiting to be named. I am hoping the recession will not make a difference to the turnout on Sunday, I know Amanda and Julie the organisers have worked very hard to put the show together and hope it is as much a success as last year.

These are just some of my new 'Cupcakes' I have finished in time for The New Forest Bear Fair which is at the end of the month. I'm really looking forward to this bear fair, this will be the 2nd show held in Beaulieu Village, I love Beaulieu it is so picturesque and has lovely individual shops which I love to look around, and of course Bear it in Mind, which also stocks Teeny Bears. I have been making the most of the sunshine lately, tidying the garden etc, although I have to say I'm not very good when I come across the odd toad or slow worm, I down tools and go running in doors as fast as I can! Not quite sure why, I know they wont harm me, but they make me leap out my skin, quite amusing for the neighbours no doubt! does any one have any ideas to help me overcome my fears? At the moment the solution seems to be Hubby will have to do the gardening!
