Beautiful Sunset

Thought I'd share this photo with you all - it was taken (by me if you can believe it!) last week at our local boat ramp while we watched the sun set after dinner. Perfection! You can never underestimate the wonder and enjoyment you get from nature. I never get sick of living here in the beautiful Shoalhaven.

Sydney Teddy Bear Fair 2009

Hi everyone! I've just returned home from trading at the 2009 Sydney Teddy Bear Fair.

What a wonderful day! Lots of traders, lots of collectors and great atmosphere - well done to Mel Kemp (Happy Little Souls) for organising a fabulous show!

I caught up with lots of existing friends, and also met new teddy friends - the fabulously talented Linda Benson (Benson Bears), Peta Smart (Wazza Bears), Raewyn Todd (Woodbury Park Bears), Lyn Parker (Parker Bears), Lorraine Almond (Almond Bears), Susan Leigh (Bearleigh Bears) and Merrilyn Pursell (Bearwildered Bears), just to name a few!

Am extremely tired as I type this (I should be in bed, as it's back to work tomorrow) It's been a very hectic weekend (Saturday afternoon/night was spent at A Day on the Green - an open air concert by Australian icons of music (Ross Wilson, Kasey Chambers and Jimmy Barnes) in leafy Bowral in the Southern Highlands of NSW) A late finish (10.45pm) saw us arrive home at midnight and I still had to do laminated hang-tags for my show bears! Off to bed at 1.30am, and up at 4.30am (what the????) to head off to Sydney, a 2 1/2 hour drive from home!

Apologies for not posting photos of my show bears earlier - I guess better late than never.
