Christmas in a window!

I was so enchanted by the christmas windows in Bruges at the weekend, look at that little chocolate shop squeezed in! it's been such fun to share all our Christmas homes, thanks to everyone that has visited this week. Lots more christmas delights to share soon. (click on photos to enlarge and see all the magic, look at those sweet penguins and delicious goodies in the top photo and the amazing toy shop lower down!)

Warm Beary Hugs, Catherine and the bears xx

Heh heh! I couldn't resist.

Catherine Catherine Catherine! I just got all caught up with your posts (sorry I got so behind in my visiting) and WOW. WOW. WOW. WOW.WOW. WOW!!!
I LOVE YOUR DRAWINGS! I mean I really love them! And the concept of the bears living in a little small village and having adventures ... ? I LOVE IT! It's so beautiful and inviting! I feel already like I would like to just follow them around to see where they go. Like their adventures will be of top notch quality, in an every day kind of way for a bear ... even just stumbling upon a cocoa shop where a kind store keeper gives them all cocoa and a biscuit would be a lovely adventure.
Catherine. You create such beautiful things. I just love visiting your blog and seeing what you have made. You are a wonder.
And your photos from the cities you visit are always such a treat for me. Thank you so much for sharing them. I visit them with you, through your eyes and photos, and can just smell the rain, the chocolate shop, see the twinkling little Christmas items .... and you give me so much hope. I have just gotten my business license and am looking forward to seeing what I create to sell. I don't even KNOW what I am going to sell yet. My art work, that is certain ... but not sure what I will create. But I have a beautiful idea today and I am excited to create it.
Truly top notch, your blog. Truly.
Thanks for all you share with us. And a merry merry Christmas to you Catherine. You AND the bears and your family.

What lovely pictures ... they remind me of the years when my children were young and we used to take them up to London especially to visit Hamleys Christmas window and to see the Regent Street lights. Fond memories!

Warmest Christmas wishes to you Catherine x

That chocolate shop looks so magically placed ... like a set out of Harry Potter or something like that.
