The New Forest and Halloween goodness

It's been a while since I showed my face round here, we took a wonderful trip back to England, staying in The New Forest in Lymington, on the South Coast of England. Warm sunshine every day which was a real treat after the rainy summer we have had. We had a mix of coastal, forest and heathland walks (spotting the New Forest ponies and few donkeys that roam the commons wherever they want) and visiting the prettiest villages. We visited a small village bursting with charm called Beaulieau with the bear shop Bear it in Mind on the high street, you can see a photo of their window with all the beary friends peering out! This shop has been at the heart of some news in England lately due to Bertie Basset (their mascot teddy bear) being banned from Facebook for fears that he could be dangerous!! What is going on in the world, all the dangerous people out there and they ban a wee little innocent Teddy Bear!!

Anyway I hope you all enjoy these first few photos, just look at those gorgeous donkeys having a rest in the village - ooooo I LOVE donkeys! I took lots of photos of all the old buildings and cottages in that area - lots more photos to follow so pop back soon to see them.

In the meantime I have a a Special Halloween Offer on my little miniature bear called Boo with his gorgeous felt pumpkin that he loves to do acrobatics on (he really wants to join the circus!). Take a peek at his page to see his HALF PRICE offer!

I'm busy hand dying some cute little bears this week, so I hope to show them soon.

Have a great Monday, Beary Hugs, Catherine x
