Wish upon a Star

It was late in the Bumpkin Bears Cottage and the Little Bears were meant to be fast asleep. However the sky was sparkling so full of stars they just had to make a wish. One by one the Bears chose their very own star and thinking long and hard made their wishes. That night they snuggled into bed with sweet dreams of when their wish would come true.

This sweet archival quality print is available in my Etsy Store.
The Little Bears are looking forward to your visit.

I was very touched the other day when a surprise parcel arrived with the post from Susy of The Enchanted Pumpkin.

She had kindly been collecting all sorts of goodies that she thought would be nice for my bear making! Aren't all these items gorgeous, such pretty lace trims, ribbons, buttons and the sweetest vintage cardigan... I think my next bear will have to be designed to fit this treasure :) Do pop along to visit her blog she makes the cutest crochet items, including gorgeous little owl hats for dolls. Thank you SO much Susy, your kindness means a great deal to me.

I am also busy working on a new illustration with a wee mouse this time! Thanks for popping by and for all your kind comments, I love visitors. Bear Hugs, Catherine x

That is ADORABLE. I just love the little stories you make up. They are simple, but told in SUCH a charming way that it just draws me in.

I'm telling you woman. You have what it takes to be famous.

Hugs! I love you!

I'm sorry I don't get by more often.

Happy Autumn!

Hi Catherine! I'm as happy as a gnome mom can be to come home from my holiday in Montana and meet you on my blog. I've added you to my favorites. Looking towards getting to know you. What a treat to receive the bear goodies...bear blessings from Jacqueline at Once Upon a Fairyland.

I LOVE your illustrations. Perhaps someday we should work on a book together...that would be fun.

Meanwhile, I think YOU should ride Tango. I still ride him at the training level and you're much younger than me! I keep wondering when I'm going to get too old! I just love the boy!!!!
