3 dresses..3 bears...2 hats & a quilt

I found this picture of The Three Bears way up the top of my old wardrobe at my parents house...such a humble little thing it was, just a cheap print backed on some old boxboard....but oh so many memories from my childhood attached to that picture. I thought to do it justice & honour the part it played in my prettying up my bedroom for all those years, I have recently had it cleaned up & framed. It now takes its place in my three year old daughter's bedroom..now making new memories for her.
I dropped in at Mooch Inside last Thursday to say hello to the lovely Margie & Kath who are busy uploading oodles of photos to get their online shop up & running...I believe it is only a week or so away. Come on girls, it is such a tease knowing just how close you are. While I was over there I thought I'd snap a shot of some sean-the-prawn goodies on display, some awaiting pickup & others just waiting to be loved. I have had a few custom orders of late...it is nice to be popular.
Hoping this week ahead will be a good one for you.

Oh my you are a tease too! I can't wait and those are so lovely..all of them that pink large floral, WOW!!!
I have an old Angel picture that hung in my mothers room then my room and now Mimi's and the memories continue I don't think enough get passed on sometimes...Someday your little girl can do the same!

So nice that you want to retain your picture for your own little one.
You look as though you have been very busy too! Love those little dresses. Alas no little cherubs to wear them now!
