Abby's sense makes the heart grow fonder

"Nana, Nana!" cried Abby, "Isn't it time you showed everyone how you fixed me?"

"Yes, you're right," said Nana Kayzy. "I've been a bit too busy, haven't I, and it's not getting any quieter. Well, we've just got time to take a few photos of you before we have to race out again." So saying, Nana Kayzy quickly set up camera and lights,  grabbed the nearest backdrop to hand - black - and plonked Abby down on it.

"Smile for the camera, Abby."

"How's this, Nana?" little Abby asked.

"Lovely," replied Nana distractedly. "I'll just take some pics of your side and rear view. We haven't got time for any more now."

She took the photos, hurriedly reviewed them, and thought, 'The black background is probably too stark for the little darling, but I've run out of time - they'll have to do.'

Abby wasn't sure that it would do, but being an understanding, loving little teddy bear she didn't want to make a fuss. Instead she watched Nana Kayzy bundling all sorts of things into the car, including photographic lights, bearmaking paraphernalia, soup - and herself. Off they went, for a catch-up with close friend, Kay Schulz (Kay's Kids).

Kay S. had just finished a large dark brown bear, made from real fur as a special order. This stately lady bear seemed to need a little more light on the subject (pardon the pun!), so the big lights were set up for the project. (Note: In the end, she looked much better without the bright lights - and many of us can relate to this!)

Having taken pictures of the big bear,        Kay S. decided that little Abby should pose for the camera again, this time with a pretty lacy background, and so it came to pass.

Do I look all right?

Ooh, this lace is lovely and soft!
Look, Nana - I can stand by myself!
Abby was very happy, and so was Nana Kayzy, who is constantly amazed by her friend's creativity and especially thankful for her friendship and support. THANK YOU, KAY.
Thank you, Aunty Kay!

Another beary friend of Nana's saw Abby this week and fell in love with her immediately, so Abby has been adopted and even now is preparing to move to her new home.


  1. Kay, your Abby is an adorable little girl. She was beautiful even with the black backdrop although the lace brought out her soft side. Have a great week. Hugs

  2. Hi my little Abby,You sure look pretty with all that lovely lace. Girls like lace don't they? We always have a busy and fun day when your Nana comes to visit. I know you will have a great Mum when you go to your forever home.

  3. Dear Aunty Kay and Aunty Maddy,
    Nana Kayzy told me the nice things you said about my story. Thank you. It was fun to have my photo taken!
    Hugs from Abby xx


So glad you dropped in! We love friends to visit, so please come again soon.
