Arianna loves Fisherman's Bear from Little Bear. He is Little Bear's friend and he goes to sleep with him. I made a prototype which is not exactly like fisherman's bear looks, but the idea is there by using Fisherman's bear from the t.v. and a book that I have from Aranzi Aranzo. I still need to work some kinks and such, but I like my first try. Although the bottom part is a bit smaller than the top. It looks like the bear is a body builder :) Ari likes it though.
On a side note, I'd been out of my crafty side - or fairy crafty as I was calling it, but my daughter's birthday is trying to get me back in the mood. I missed it that is for sure :)

Today we went to pick apples (mostly) and raspberries to Gardwood Farms in Indiana. It was very nice weather wise, and all the family went. Ari loved to pick apples, but she had the most fun at the raspberries bushes. She kept telling me how little bear ate the raspberries and mama bear made pies. It was very cute.
I still wanted to make a quick stop. In LaPorte, they have an "antique" store with lots of goodies. This is the only store that I still like. Ari was a sport and since she loves the store too, we both enjoyed!
Look what she found. She put the hat and I said you want a picture? She said yes!
Ari outside the store, they have these beautiful and huge planters!
The next pictures are stuff that I bought at Gardwood so you get an idea what they sell:
They have their own bakery as well. My favorites are the apple cider donuts that are only sold on the fall, but the other donuts are very tasty as well. I also bought a peach muffin and some apple chips!
Now, here are the goodies that I bought at the antique store:
Then we drove home and everyone except me are taking a nap...well I think I am going to join them now :)
