My birthday and a digital page

Today is my birthday and I have been spoiled by my dear husband and my children.
For my teddy bears pictures, I received a new lighting studio and a lot of goodies and a restaurant.
I used the bedroom of my grandson because the light there is excellent ; however, I had to move my other studio because it's too dangerous with him around. The light and everything I used for my first studio.
Now I will be able to go everywhere in the house ; everything is included in the package, light, tripod.
As I told you, I'm a spoiled woman.

I would like also to show you my new scrapbook page ; Darren spent the end of the week with us and I asked him to make a Valentine Card for his Mom.
The result is here :

A few birds pictures, taken today

Snow is still here, but it was sunny today ; so I took pictures of birds around my birdfeeders.
This one is a new come one ; proof that spring arrives ; when I don't know.

Here is my patio ; Carolina, a little snow for you in your sunny country ;o)))

This one is a tourterelle (French) ; she was staying there in the little heat of the sun ; poor little one ; they don't like winter....

Here are my favorite ones ; the chickadees ; they are not scary and they were eating just beside me.

A new 2009 Teddy Bear

This is a mini Teddy bear designed and created by me, Chantal Giroux.

If you want to Adopt him, here is the link where you will find all details about him.

Rupert, an old style bear, is a big 3 inches when standing on his legs, made from a soft and long pile fabric.

His face is finished with gentle shadings.
He is filled with a new material, five way jointed and weighted.

He has black glass eyes, a lacey collar around his neck.
He is so sweet and has a lot of love to give.
I'm sure He will find a sweet Mommy soon.
He comes from a smoke-free home.

I would like to Thank You for taking the time to visit my creation.
