Introducing your New Friend - Pickles

There is a Bear called Pickles that is so excited about finally meeting you all.

This little Bear has been circling in my imagination for a long time and it is such a delight to finally see him in print. From the moment that the sun rises Pickles pulls on his red Welly Boots and heads out across the meadows. He gets up to all sorts of adventures and is always making new friends with wildlife. My very first Print of Pickles shows him making friends with a sweet chicken all nestled in amongst the cottage garden complete with my favourite Foxgloves. (On my recent trip to Scotland the fields were all edged with these beautiful pillars of pink flowers.) This Print is available in my Etsy store..

I have also reduced all Secondary shipping costs to just 50 cents, so shopping just got more fun in my Store.
I have more Prints and Notecards to introduce over the coming days so come back soon to see what Pickles and I are getting up to! My new Mohair Bear hopes to meet you later this week too, busy busy! Bear Hugs, Catherine x

Hello, Pickles! OMG, Catherine...he is sooo cute, oh, I love him! I can see why you've been dreaming about him a long time. :o) He is beautiful. And just love this sweet print. Will he be featuring in more of your cards too? Oh, I could just hug him! Wonderful work, as always, Catherine. You have a way of saying so much in a simple, but wonderful way. :o) Happy Day, my friend. And many thanks for the lovely comment at my place. ((HUGS))

Good day, Pickles. Good to see you enjoy talking to chickens, as do I. Pigeons can be very difficult to have a serious conversation with, but chickens are always willing to stop and chat.
Tell me, will be seeing more of your adventures in future?
Very best wishes,
Mr Orso Bear, Esq

thanks everyone, so glad that you like Pickles, he is a little bit bashful so asked me to send you all a hug! You will certainly be seeing more adventures from him, also some notecards along with new prints.
Hugs, Catherine and Pickles xx
