Santa Came Early

Meet Linda Benson's Holly, a fabulous little bear holding her special cat friend.  She is 14 inches or 35cm from head to toe and fully poseable. With Linda's trademark leather nose and open mouth design she was a sweet bear I couldn't resist adding to my collection from the recent TWW Christmas Treasures on line show.

And how about these fantastic leather paws, she is a real treasure !

Here's Holly with my little Benson Family collection.  The very cute little bear at the front wearing green handmade boots and a beautifully smocked play suit is one of Linda's from 1994 and Matilda the fantastic life like Bilby is from 2009.

We are busy picking mangoes from our tree again this year and have a good sized crop that will keep us in frozen mangoes for most of next year. We haven't lost many mangoes to the bats and bat numbers seem to be down compared with last year.

As Christmas day is almost here I'd like to take the opportunity to wish all my beary good blog friends every happiness for the holiday season and an inspired and creative new year. Cheers for now, Robyn.
