Well it's that time of year again for Where Bloggers Create Party hosted by My Desert Cottage.

Thank you so much Karen for hosting the party again. I can't wait to go and visit everyone's studio's

Just inside my door way you will find this cabinet. I love to take all my photo's on the small set of drawers. I really love vintage pink. Here are some of my props i use in my photo's.


Welcome to my studio, I am an Australian Teddy bear artist - I love to make vintage style teddy bears, elephants, bunny's, giraffes, Panda bears.

Here is another one of my green birdcages.

They make great displays for my bears.

Here is another display cabinet in my room, This one holds a lot of vintage glass an old typewriter and some of my suitcases. On the top shelf i have a French bottle drying rack with a lot of bobbins with lace.

This gorgeous display gets moved around a lot in the studio. This is a before i moved it yet again!

I love this little pink toy sewing machine, it is missing a lot of parts, but it does make a great display and i love that it is incomplete.

I hope you have loved looking around my little studio, I am very lucky to be able to work here everyday and some days it's hard to leave, I get lost in creating a new little bear or elephant.

Oh, your studio is gorgeous! Those little bears are simply adorable! I don't know how you can do anything in there. If this was my room, all I could do would be to smile all of the time. I could stay in there forever! So so sweet and thank you for sharing your special room.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia :)

You create some beautiful soft and snuggly animals. Ugh, on the dress form I spied a garter belt - what I remember wearing to hold up my nylons before pantyhose were invented. :-)
Happy crafting.

Your creative space in like stepping into the pages of an enchanting fairytale. I love all of your vintage stuffed toys. Oh, and that white lace hat . . . when I saw that images of a 1930's wedding with the bride wearing that hate just flashed into my mind. It is fabulous :) Thanks so much for allowing me into your space, I have had a very pleasurably visit.
Your blogging sister,

It's obvious I'm running late to the party, but I am so glad to be here now. The vintage vibe I got from your lovely space had me drooling, swooning, and loving every photo. Your bears are adorable and that new chair will definitely come in handy when sewing a few of them. As you might guess, I love it all. Thanks for sharing this awesome space.

Karen Valentine said...

I adore your studio and the fuzzy little critters you share it with! Those vintage goodies just make my heart sing and the colors in there are delightful. I' am going back again for a second look but before I go I just want to say thank you for joining the party and letting us all have a tour. :)
