I know I'm a big kid but I have always loved the Winnie The Pooh stories and so there we were back in England and half an hour away from the famous 100 Acre Wood & Pooh Corner shop! So what is a girl to do, well my lovely fiance agreed and off we set on an adventure in the footsteps of A.A. Milne! Nestled in East Sussex and I mean so well nestled we couldn't find it, we drove around and around in circles until we felt quite dizzy and needed a cup of tea and honey! First we found the little shop, rather disappointing with not much stock, but a very cute building, just the right size for me to get into at 5foot4! It used to be a sweet shop where Christopher Robin, A.A. Milne's son, was taken every week by his Nanny on their donkey!
It was their adventures into the surrounding woods that captured the imagination of A.A. Milne and E.H Shepard. Can't you just imagine Pooh & friends walking through these landscapes as part of the 100 Acre Wood?

Talking of Bears, there are 2 Bears that are having fun joining in the Christmas in July Sale. Romeo & Callum would love to go on their own expodition to find a new family, so if you'd like to bring one of them into your life they have got a very special adoption discount, but only for a little while. They'd love you to visit them over HERE.
On our next expodition together we'll be hunting for the original Pooh Sticks Bridge, would you like to come along, don't forget your sticks, oh and a little something, maybe some honey?! Catherine x
