Honey Bear



I was making up the bed in Kate's old room here at the lake house this morning as my inlaws will be arriving this week...
There are many charming children's antiques and girly things in this room...
...it is where our three sweet sisters stay when they visit.



Last spring I found this antique doll and then in the summer I found the little old dress that fits her just perfectly ...



...a bit short but she has cute knees...



These three friends were excited as Mr. Flea brought up a package that I had received from Margaret at The French Bear this week. I won her fabulous give-away a few weeks ago.

Let me introduce...











Isn't she darling?
Thank you Margaret for this beautifully made bear and thank you to your granddaughter for pulling my name out of the hat!

Honey Bear is quite happy in her new home with her new friends.

I don't know if it is as hot where you are as it is here on the East coast right now...
...but if it is...
...think cool thoughts!
...or, as I am considering...
go jump in the lake!

:)

If you are so inclined...we are grateful for a few extra prayers tonight as my Mom has her first chemo treatment tomorrow...
Thank you!

Prayer said for your mom.

Smile planted on my face viewing the eye candy.
I once stayed overnight as a guest in a farmhouse.
They had a child's wooden table & chairs set up with a child's tea set on the table and teddy bears seated in the chairs.
It was adorable. :0)

All good wishes for your Mom Laura!!! I know with the love of your family around her she will do great.

Honey bear is adorable and will be in good company. Is that the little doll that you got last year at the antique store?
Heading home to a/c...what a relief!

My prayers are with all of you but particularly your mom! Love the bear, fits perfect. But I must say the edge of what appears to be maybe a
fireplace got my utmost attention! Xo

So many beautiful things in that room.......
My gosh!!!!!
And I can understand your happiness when you realized that you had won that lovely bear. I can see that it has come to the right place :)

I´m going to send love and light to your mother and a prayer for you all. Hoping that everything will turn out in the best way.

Here in Sweden it is very sunny and warm and that´s a bit unusual when it´s hot like this. So I enjoy it very much.

Have a nice day and take care.

I will definitely be including your mother in my prayers, I hope that the chemo won't be to hard on her. Oh, I would love to come and jump in your lake, it must be a joy to be able to take a dip whenever you want!

A darling little bear in the sweetest frock...
The plates in your last post are beautiful but then I've always had a weakness for dainty floral plates and in my line of work that could lead to a collection.
A multitude of well wishes being sent your Mom's way...
I'm with you on the go jump in the lake it is soooo hot!
