Mice - by Rose Fyleman

I think mice
are rather nice.
Their tails are long,
Their faces small,
They haven't any
Chins at all.

Their ears are pink,
Their teeth are white.
They run around
The house at night.

They nibble things
They shouldn't touch
And no one seems
To like them much.

But I think mice
are nice.

First Day at Hogwarts....



Well here he is, my little bear at his "sorting ceremony" what house will he be sorted into Gryffindor, Ravenclaw, Hufflepuff or Slytherin?! We will have to wait and see what the sorting hat decideds....

Oh you may not think me pretty,
But don't judge on what you see,
I'll eat myself if you can find
A smarter hat than me.
You can keep your bowlers black,
Your top hats sleek and tall,
For I'm the Hogwarts Sorting Hat
And I can cap them all.
There's nothing hidden in your head
The Sorting Hat can't see,
So try me on and I will tell you
Where you ought to be.

You might belong in Gryffindor,
Where dwell the brave at heart,
Their daring, nerve, and chivalry
Set Gryffindors apart;
You might belong in Hufflepuff,
Where they are just and loyal,
Those patient Hufflepuffs are true
And unafraid of toil;
Or yet in wise old Ravenclaw,
if you've a ready mind,
Where those of wit and learning,
Will always find their kind;
Or perhaps in Slytherin
You'll make your real friends,
Those cunning folks use any means
To achieve their ends.

So put me on! Don't be afraid!
And don't get in a flap!
You're in safe hands (though I have none)
For I'm a Thinking Cap!


There are some amazing gallery piece's previewed on the TBAI 
website check them out here

Fourth Clue

I made each of these little books, 
all piled up like this they measure 3.5cm 
It took me hours!


Now I'm sure its becoming easier to guess
(that's if you know what these books are all about)

Any Occasion Will Do!!

In 16 days I will be attending the TBAI (Teddy Bear Artist Invitational) 

 I am SO excited, I'll get to catch up with my very special American friends (who I do not get to see often enough) and collect new ones!

The theme for this years  show is.....
"Any Occasion Will Do" 
and every artist has chosen a special occasion to base their gallery piece on. 

I have just finished mine (in the nick of time) and I thought it would be fun (for me) to post a few sneaky peeks to get you guessing over the next few days.

So here's the first clue........ 


The inhabitant of this cage has flown or run away.......
What was it?
