Freddie St. James is my latest centre-seam bear and he is 6 3/4 inches tall.  He is made from soft gold German Shulte mohair and has wool felt paw pads.  Freddie is a sad bear - he just would not smile for me, no matter how hard I tried.  I think he is sad about all the awful things that have happened in the world, lately.  So, I told him if he behaved  himself, when I took his pictures, I would let him have one wish and he agreed.

Freddie has been gently aged and distressed (with a few spots of missing mohair) and comes with black, German glass eyes and a waxed sparse nose.  He is stuffed firmly with excelsior and his weighted with steel shot.  Freddie is shaded on his ears, face and paws with permanent fabric paints a comes with a simple red silk bow from vintage ribbon.  Attached to the ribbon is a tiny glass bottle with a dandelion seed inside and a little tag that says "wish".  I've told Freddie, when he knows what he wants to wish, he can open the bottle and blow the seed into the air, to carry his wish.  His postage is $20.00 by UPS to most places in North America and $20.00 for Small Air Packet to Europe.  Please don't hesitate to email me if you have a question and thank you for taking time to peek.

I am finally listing something new - a tiny 2 1/2 inch, hand dyed, teal clown bear.  Because of his size, it was really difficult to get accurate pictures of his colour. His colour is closest to the ones sitting inside the tea cup.  The cup seemed to reflect his colour most accurately.  Harper is fully disc jointed, with ultra-suede paw pads, onyx eyes and permanent shading on his face, ears and paws.  He wears a folded felt clown hat and matching collar, which are removable.  He comes with his own vintage childs tea cup.  I hope  you enjoy him.   Postage is IS $20.00 to most places in North America and by Small Packet Airmail to Europe. Prices are in U.S. dollars. If you have an questions, please don't hesitate to email me.  Thanks for peeking.

For those friends and family not on Facebook, this is a recent picture of our grandson, taken on a cruise in March. I think he is growing and changing more now, than when he was as a baby.  Almost a teenager - it's hard to believe.

 Wishing all of you a wonderful Merry Christmas and I hope you have the opportunity to enjoy the season with your loved ones.  We are sitting at Tim Hortons at Peason International Airport, waiting for our son to arrive home from South Korea.  Then our Christmas will officially begin!

I have decided to re-pose my needle felted chickadee on a more natural base of wood.  He is secured by thread and could easily be removed, but I like the way he sits on his perch. The detailed, little  needle felted chickadee is just over 3 inches long inches long and 1 1/2  inches high, with German glass eyes, a black Fimo beak and wire legs covered in dark embroidery thread and sealed with gloss varnish. He sits on a perch of exotic wood and together the piece is 3 inches high.  His postage is $20.00 UPS to most places in North America or $20.00 Small Packet Airmail, overseas.  If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to email me.  Thanks for peeking.
