As Wheelie Bailey reported yesterday, the household hug continues to grow @ an alarming rate.
The youngest newcomber being Miss Anna.
She was very camera shy to start with...
But, after much coxing she finally agreed to say "Hallo"...Her very soft fur is a a perfect shade of IVORY, do you not think?
Anna has an interesting pedigree.
She was hand-made in The Netherlands especially for Gamleys.
Mother remembers the name well, having visited some years ago, the companies original store in Hove, just down the road from Brighton.
Founded in 1919, Gamleys were one of the oldest toy-sellers in the country, but sadly they disappeared last September when the final shop was closed - tutt, tutt!
Anyway, here is Anna & I, in full view together...Now, her pearls are a mystery, as she did not arrive with them!
I caught her emerging from Grandmothers old bedroom so decked.
But, being a gentleman, I did not like to say anything!!!
I just hope, Edward has not sent me a kleptomaniac!
