Vintage finds.
















On a work day one of my favourite lunch hour pastimes is visiting the local charity shops , it almost makes going to work worthwhile ! Lately I've been looking for anything interesting or quirky to accessorize my bears but the haul has been very meagre indeed. All I've managed to find up to now are a mini straw hat , a wee aran jumper and some vintage fabric. However I did find these , a boxed set of Jane Hissey's Old Bear collection!! I remember these books from when my kids were still small and I used to read them bedtime stories every night ( regularly falling asleep before they did, book still in hand ).I know that you can probably still buy these books new and they are not really vintage but I think you'll agree the subject matter certainly is! The illustrations are simply beautiful and a great source of inspiration . Lovely Old Bear I miss those days................
