The bears move house

The new residents

As regular readers of my blog will know, I’ve been shifting things around to accommodate my new bits of aerial artwork, namely my quickbuild planes from airfix

They’re now all happily parked on the top of my bookshelves, so when little paws show up with my sister…they won’t get accidentally broken

However, this has meant the little Disney toys I picked up from the Disney store in Manchester have had to find a new spot to sit.

Pooh bear and chums, in their new home

They’re now sat on a lower bookshelf looking after the books, which they’re sat in front of. This means my nephews can pick them up and play with them as they want, without disturbing any of the squadron.

Sweet supper

Salford 19th August 2019

#Food #Sandwich #Hazelnut #Chocolate #Spread #Supper

Sat in the kitchen – pondering

What to have to satisfy my inner pooh bear

End of the cupboard – the bread bin

End of the corner cupboard – the provisions store

Taking the last of the hazelnut spread tween two pieces of wholemeal – delicious!

Mr Milnes tale , captured perfectly

In a moment

Notes of colour , delicately transferred onto

It’s material base

As models go, it sings the

Tale of the Hundred Acre Wood, in wonderful wonder

Uniquely created for a special store,

Reds through to Violets bring characters to life

Exceptional.

Happy Winnie-the-pooh day!

winnie-the-pooh-day

Wednesday 18th January 2017

I’ll be posting another piece from my notebooks later, but I’ve just been informed – c/o my Facebook and Twitter feeds…that it’s Winnie-the-pooh day.

and being an ardent Ursinian (that’s a fan of the Great Bear) – I thought i’d share this as it popped up on my public feed…. Pooh and one of the bees from the honey tree 🙂

Given I’ve been entitled to doing something special for an hour in the day – I might just peruse my big book of Winnie the pooh stories – by AA Milne, and enjoy a little something sweet while i’m reading it…

Have a great day folks!

Inner Nature (Brought by Winnie the Pooh)

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES
Winnie the Pooh!

Been reading through the books on my shelf again

The works of the uncarved block keep coming into sharp focus –

I refer to the works of AA Milne and Winnie the Pooh

Cottleston , Cottleston, Cottleston Pie

A Fly can’t bird, but a bird can fly

Ask me a riddle and i’ll reply

Cottleston, Cottleston, Cottleston Pie

(Read Benjamin Hoff – The Tao of Pooh – and it’ll all come into sharp focus….)

Basically Cottleston Pie is a shortened form of “Inner Nature”

Or as Mr Hoff puts it “Things are as they are”
