Ellie

Sorry dear Blog for neglecting you over the last few days, there has been a little Bear that has been demanding my attention! Her name is Ellie, she has a gentleness of spirit that makes you want to be her friend. She would be delighted to share her tea parties with you, especially if you brought some delicious cup cakes! What fun you could have together. You can see lots more photos over at my website.**UPDATE 27th April Ellie has now found a loving new home**


Little girl Bumpkin Bears do not come along as often as the boy bears so I felt she deserved a special treat. I made her a beautiful collar out of adorable vintage trim with silk polka dots. It has a precious vintage peach button attachement at the back so can be removed if she wants to change outfits! At first she can be a little quiet but once she feels comfortable she will fill your days with wonderful stories!

I was given her beautiful polka dot trim from a lovely friend called Susy, do check out her adorable Etsy store.

I have so much to share in my upcoming Blog posts, had a lovely stroll in the city of Antwerp on Friday night and on Saturday visited a fabulous toy store that had lots of Steiff Bears, I was glad I had my camera! So do pop back again soon.
By the way there is only 1 day left of my Friends for Tea Giveaway .

Hugs, Catherine & Ellie x
