Gadding About

Some sketches of where we have been.
I found the little bear in a wood turning factory shop. I wanted to buy him but he was a gift to the owner. I googled in 'kay bojesen' and came up with the cute little guy, http://www.pottery.dk/bojesenanimals.htm , however even I can't bring myself to pay $125US for a six inch teddie. I might try and make a similar looking bear out of leather.

I love the look of the pages. It has that visual journal look that makes it a visual journal as well. SO nicely done!

I'm with you, Clare! I collect bears but there is a limit and this one goes beyond it. I think that your journalled bear is a wonderful momento of the day.

Cheers,

Clare -
Both these pages are splendid (the bear page and the zoo page, that is). Excellent drawings and wonderful marginalia. I'm so glad I stopped in!
