Be My Valentine a Sneek Peek

Here is a sneek peek of my three bears who will be ready for adoption at this years third annual TBACA Be My Valentine Online Show. There will be 32 International and Australian artists participating and definitely a show NOT to be missed!  The show will open on Friday 11th February at 8pm Australian Eastern Daylight Saving time, and closes Monday 14th February at 8pm Australian Daylight Saving time.
A little footnote about Cyclone Yasi
Our garden has taken a bruising, but other than that everything else here is intact after cyclone Yasi belted into the Queensland coast with the eye crossing the coast about 150 to 200 kilometers south of us last Wednesday night and rated a category five as it did so.  It is heart breaking to see the damage so many have suffered who were in the direct path of Yasi and it will certainly be a very long recovery road, and some may never recover.  We were very well informed about Yasi  and were preparing three days before the cyclone arrived but nothing can really prepare you for the incredible power a system like that has.  Here's hoping there are no more like that in the pipeline but we have been told we could expect another within the next two months. Miraculously all the little birds are back in business in our garden and the bad weather has brought on a flush of beautiful Birdwing and Ulysses Butterflies !!! Amazing !  we have their caterpillar food plants growing in our garden.

  5. Ah ha the blog has a new dress I see!
    Your peek turned out neat Robyn...your bears are delightful.
    We were all so lucky to come through these terrible disasters of the past few weeks unscathed...cyclones, floods and fires...feel so sorry for those that didn't though.
    See you at the show!!
    Warmest Hugs,

  6. Yes Sandi, a new dress can be very cheery ! It is hard to take in all the terrible times of late ... and scary how violent and extreme from one end of the country to the other. Makes one really appreciate every single ordinary day with no strife !!

    Looking forward to the show !!! Not to be missed !

    Beary hugs
