Woodend Teddies

It was a superb weekend at Woodend - the show was a resounding success - the only disappointment was that I simply forgot to take photos! All I have are these couple of our stand - very dull when what we all want to see is bears, bears and more bears, oh, and people! Sandra Wigzell from Bear Creations Magazine was there to open the show, and Cuddles the Bear wandered around giving out free hugs. Kerri Botwood from Kerri's Bundle of Bears (a must-visit shop in Woodend) and her trusty band of helpers did a fantastic job of organising and running the show. Thank you Kerri!
Our friends Pam and Alan came down from Echuca for the day - they brought lunch with them.
Pam, you're a star! Your sandwiches were delicious, and the cake was heavenly. But I'm not coming to your place until you get rid of the snake! (Just joking!)
I did get some shots of the Doll and Teddy Decor stand. You really need to have a look at their website. They make the most beautiful furniture for dolls and teddies and their prices are very reasonable! (Himself did a lot of muttering about someone spending the profits of the day's trade, and something about having no room in the car for the trip home - I really couldn't see the problem - I only bought a little cradle and bench seat for some of my bears!) Here are some photos and you'll see what I mean.Look carefull at the photo above - the doll is sitting on a little see-saw. Behind is a little swing.
In the photo below - at the top you can see a little bench seat, and under it is a cradle - they now have teddies sitting in them, in our home! I was right to make this small purchase, wasn't I?!!In the last photo is a lovely Amish cradle and a little pusher. I was very tempted - maybe next time? Then, of course, there was the rocking horse, and the little bridge, and............I promise I'll take more photos next year!

Hey Liz! Sounds like you had a ball at Woodend! And a friend who brings lunch is a friend worth keeping! Tee! Hee! Hee! Oooohhhh!! Teddy furniture!! I think it's a VERY good thing for my budget that I was too far away to make it - our loungeroom is already a bit 'cluttered cottagy' and the cradles would have really tempted me! Glad you had a great time! Bear Hugs! KRIS (Tag Along Teddies)
