The three musketeers




We were in Sheffield yesterday, seeing my brother and collecting these three characters. I saw them in an auction catalogue a few months ago, and asked my brother to put a bid on for me as the auction house is close to his home. They are so threadbare. The bear has no ears, the little dog is missing an eye and the large dog has been loved almost to death.


I have plans for these chaps. They are going to have to earn their keep. 


I do have a favourite. Better not say which one, I don't want to hurt any feelings...



Love these faces!

  2. Thanks for your kind comments! I know you have had your fair share of yucky health stuff!
    These little fellows are adorable, what is it about old, threadbare things that make us want to scoop them up! It's a good job really as Mr Bea is beginning to look old and threadbare now! Ada :)

  3. I like to think of all the love and cuddles they have had to make them a little on the worn side. I think my favourite is the little dog as I used to have a similar one - heaven knows where he is now. Karen x

    1. The little dog is unbelievably cute, and it was seeing him that made me place my bid. I haven't seen one like him before, as he is really small. I wonder where your dog is now?

  5. Hi, Your little critters look like they have all been well loved through the years. It is nice that they have all found a nice new home.
    Thank you for visiting my blog. I think that planning for two outdoor markets a year is a great idea. I would love to get into an indoor antique and craft mall, as a permanent little shop, but at the present time we do not have one in our area. I'm tickled that you like my hat-stands. Have a great day, Connie :)
