Lady Good Nectar has the Bear Family over for Costume Tea Party


Oh Dear, I invited the bears over for Tea this afternoon.
When I opened the cottage door the poor dears ran away!
I thought I'd told them that it was a costume Tea and that
I would be dressed as a Mime. Mrs. Bear let me have it for
scaring poor baby bear to death. He doesn't take kindly to
clowns and Mine, but he sure ate his weight in tea and crumpets.
He he he!

I think I just opened one of those 1950's picture books and out popped this illustration of yours. You've got that vintage thing down lady!

Bella Sinclair said...

Hahahaha. Lookit me, I'm trapped in a box! Hahaha.

This is a HOOOOOOT! Mimes don't scare me, but I did have a run-in with a white faced possum once that scared the bejeezus outta me. Oooh, this is delicious! I love how the chairs are all different, perfect for the bears. And I'm loving her outfit. Miming in style!
