This is a small trinket box made from cruushed marble and resin, which has been hand painted. It is about three inches tall and comes in original packaging.

I use this to store secret bitsnbobs, but the time has come for these three to keep others secrets.

Please drop a note to Jenny.walton@btinternet.com if you are interested. The total amount raised from this item will be donated to the Parkinsons Disease Society.

Cranberry is off on his travels - to join a lovely fanily which include a Prince Bishop Bear or two, so I am sure he will soon make friends, and settle in.

I did not think I would feel so sad but I know his new Mam will love him as much as we have.

The good news is that one or two other members of the hug have beenn asking to go on trips!

This is a vintage Pendleton Bear from Terry Hayes, Greensburg, Pennsylvania. Terry attended a bear fair in Harrogate a few years ago and this delightful bear came home with us.

He has sppent quite a few Christmas's and birthdays with us, and he will be accompanied by photos ofo some of his adventures.

He is 16 inches tell and made from German mohair, has glass eyes and is cotter pin jointed. He is a heavy bear and, as he has glass eyes and steel pellett filling he isn't really suitable for young children.

If you are interested in re homing this bear his adoption fee is £35 - drop me a line at jenny.walton@btinternet.com
with your address for postage costs.

The purpose of this new blog is quite simple - I have made a decision to reduce my staff of stuff. I need my home back so, this is where items will appear as and when they come to light.

To give you an idea - there will be fabric, thrads and sewing equipment - several TOL machines. There will also be a magical selection of Bear Making materials, mohair, joints, eyes, and some of my unique Prince Bishop Patterns.

My own collection of bears will also be putting in guest appearances, including well known Artists such as Jill Hussey, Becky Hurley, and Christine Pike.

Buttons, ,ribbons, sari silk, and other embellishments, but for starters ....... come back tomorrow.

Payment will be via personal cheque, Paypal, or Postal Order, and I will quote postage when I am notified of your location.

A donation from each sale will be made to the Parkinsons Disease Society
