Paddington Bear is 50!

And that's a very great age for a little bear, even one who's travelled all the way from Peru. Don't believe me? See for yourself...Paddington Bear's 50th Anniversary

I grew up with Paddington, so this makes me feel rather old to say the least! Anyway, to commemorate his big five-oh, they've released some special edition Paddington Bears, one of which comes inside his very own suitcase, you know, the one he used to carry his marmalade sandwiches in (when they wouldn't fit under his hat!) - though obviously they've made it a little bigger so he can fit inside lol!

So in honour of the 'year of the bear', I came up with my very own little 'Bag of Bears' or to be more precise...two! One full of adorable little pink bears to match Cutie Pie, and one full of equally adorable little blue bears to match Lil Boy Blue. Of course they're not Paddington, and they haven't travelled from deepest darkest Peru, but I hope you'll find it in your hearts to give them good homes just the same.

Some are bears and some are bear stickers ...both of which are a first for me, so I hope the quality is okay, but you'll have to be the judge of that! And here's another first for me...just recently I learned how to add a blinkie to my signature in forums, and then today I learned how to create my own! I still have to learn how to put it in the sidebar of my blog...but for now I'm gonna post it here just to show the world I did it!!! (Yes, I know that's sad, but humour me lol!)
