I did not make this . . .

though a little part of me wishes I had.


This meerkat is the extraordinary work of Wendy Chamberlain. I saw one a bit too late to bring it home so I requested one of my very own. It has been keeping me company on my desk as I work.


I just love the way she has captured the stance of a lookout – the sentry watching out for danger.


I watched a group of meerkats at the Zoo last week and they are every bit as cute in real life as you see on television.


Now I have one of my own – a tiny one, a stuffed one but actually it will probably work out better for all of us this way.


The real ones can play together in the desert and this one can pretend to watch for dangers lurking about my studio.



  1. He is too cute for words. I'm sure he is watching out for you while you work. May be, he is watching to see if Sebastian is getting up to trouble.

  2. Hi Miss Ginger,

    How sweet. But you didn't tell us his name. Does Sebastian like his new "brother"? Sure hope to see a picture of them together.

    Heaps of Hugs

  3. Wow beautiful, and so little. I had no idea till you put your hand up. I am amazed at artists that can work so small.

  4. He's adorable. I'm sure he'll sense any danger and warn you to take action.

  5. Ginger Thank you so much for featuring my little meerkat child in your blog I am really honoured. So pleased that you are enjoying him and he is settling in with the bears.

  6. Oooh my... He's ADORABLE!!
    I agree - too cute for words!!

    Amazing ^^

  7. @ Kays Kids - Sebastian does need a babysitter sometimes. A little help would be very welcome. Good idea!

    @ The Bear's Blog - Oh, I do need to tell you his name. It's very nice. It's Thandiwe which means beloved.

    @ Joanne - I'm with you on these miniature artists' skills. Amazing.

    @ maddyrose - :)

    @ Cate and David - I thought so too.

    @ Katy - Thanks!

    @ Dragonfly Creations - He is and will be much enjoyed here. Thank you!

    @ NarinaNäpertää - I think so too!

  8. Oh wow! I am such a fan of Wendy's work and have a few of her little babies in my collection. Your meerkat is fabulous.
