Today I've been working on this little guy. I've recycled an old blanket to make him. I'm just waiting for the rain to stop so I can spray him with parisian & age him up a bit. I've used some old boot buttons I found in amongst my buttons for his eyes. Will post another pic when I've finished him. I'm trying to make myself finish a project before I start another one but somehow it hasn't quite worked!

My bags are packed & in the morning I head off for Nelson, my home town in New Zealand. This time my daughter & baby grandson are coming with me! For the first time I will have all 3 grandchildren together! Two baby boys & a beautiful grand-daughter who will be turning 4 while we are there!
I'm also planning to fit in a visit to an Antiques Fair, (and a few op-shops). After I ditch all the pressies there should be plenty of room in my suitcase for some new treasures!! The hatbox pictured I scored on my last trip home & the old bear is my very own from my childhood. Sadly he has no eyes & his growler doesn't work. He has glow in the dark paw pads though! Hmm not sure if they still glow!
See you all in 10 days!

The top pic is a photo I took inside a lovely little bakery I visited when we went to the Brooklyn market in November. It was just gorgeous with lovely old cupboards & kitchenalia decorating it.
Hope you all have a lovely New Year!
