And the Show Begins!

  At last the Teddies Worldwide show is OPEN! I do hope you have been to visit while you can. While Daphne usually provides a theme for us to work from, this time the specification was just that each piece had to be a bear.. so I thought I'd challenge myself to my *own* theme- April in Paris! Pretty Spring like pastel colours, outfits fit for strolling the Champs Elysees, and each one comes with a teeny weeny little golden Eiffel Tower charm along with her hang tag.
I'd like to share some photos of my pieces- some had special details I thought needed extra showing off:)

All the girls are available at the Teddies Worldwide online show- simply click the banner above and it will take you to the main page, then you can scroll to my name and click to my page. And of course after that, do browse through all the other fabulous pieces:)

Above is Coco.. a tiny 2" standing, with a tiny replica Chanel shopping bag...the lucky girl!:)

And here we have Water Lily, inspired by the beautiful water lilies the great Impressionist artist Monet painted....

This little lady is Gigi, dressed in silk tullle, faux pearls, sitting on a vintage powder box with a miniature Chanel perfume  bottle...

              Gigi's vintage powder box is trimmed in dark olive green vintage ribbon and beautiful                               antique wax orange blossoms from a bride's headpiece, and a faux pearl 'necklace'

And little Belle, who comes nestling in a teeny tiny pink satin pointe shoe, trimmed with vintage flowers and silver metallic embroidery.

Belle really is a tiny girl!

And here is a closeup of her little face...

This pair is called "April Showers"..

They come nestled in their little pink parasol, surrounded by vintage silk millinery flowers....

Two teeny little girls!

A full view....

Odile, a veritable giant at 6" tall!:) I wanted to be sure to show off her beautiful custom made leather shoes..... I also hand crocheted a little cardigan for her...

look at that little face!

And last but not least, Madeleine, who is taking her favourite dolly for a stroll in a pretty pram.

Here is a closeup of the pram and dolly....

Don't forget if one catches your eye, they are just a couple of clicks away via the banner at the top of the page:)

I do hope you enjoy the show- as always there are lots of wonderful pieces from very talented artists- I may be slightly biased;) but I think the Teddies Worldwide shows are the best in the online Teddy show world! Daphne does a fabulous job of selecting the best artists from all round the world, it truly is an honour to participate.

Well I'm slow- I just posted two sold pieces to my blog and forgot to add my newest little girl, Pixie the little elephant! Just listed on Bearpile this afternoon, she's my smallest elephant design ever, sitting at 2" small.
Now, back to work on my preview piece for the upcoming Teddies Worldwide online show. As always, I can't wait to see what everyone has in store for us! The creativity artists bring to the Teddies Worldwide shows never disappoints :)

Some new little ones....

I thought I'd share a couple of my new little ones that I listed on bear pile this week. It's been so long since I crocheted for the bears, I must do it again soon...
