Taking Photos of Shy Girly Bears

Dotty visited the photographer again today...

She is just not photogenic, my shy little girly bear. 


But these photos are a huge improvement and I think this time her personality shines through, don't you agree?

Skippy, a Spring Babe

Skippy is the tiniest of bears ever born in the AutumnWood studio, and yet, he took forever to finish.  He has been peeking at me from his little corner on my work table, arm- and legless, poor little thing.  But finaly  I manage to put it all together this week and he is a real sweetie pie.

Skippy is a 3.5” mohair bear, he is 5 way jointed, filled with polyfil and a wee bit of steel shot fill his tiny tummy.

Skippy is available for adoption at

The Wisdom of Pooh Bear

When my son was little, I used to read him all the Pooh bear books.  We probably have every single book ever published about Pooh bear, big ones, small ones, some with music, and others with pop-up's...  I just love Pooh and his wisdom.   

Today's Inspirational Quote I find especially true....  if only I can remember it on the days when nothing goes according to plan...

Rivers know this: there is no hurry. We shall get there some day.
-- Pooh's Little Instruction Book, inspired by A. A. Milne
