MISS PINKERTON AND FRIENDS

Well, I'm on a roll, as they say :o)  I've just finished three more bears and am excited to debut them.  They are all different sizes and colours and I hope you can find a minute to take a peek.  Enjoy!

PS:  You're mind isn't playing tricks - I thought Miss Pinkerton was sold, but when the customer came to pick her up, Tamerack the Clown had other ideas.  He kept whispering to her and he won, and now has a new home.  Miss Pinkerton is now back for sale and waiting for her new home :o)

TICTOC THE CLOWN:  Tictoc is one of my largest bears - 7 1/2 inches, He is a made from hand dyed gold/brown semi sparse mohair.  Tictoc is fully jointed, has German glass eyes, sparse waxed nose and permanent shading on his nose, eyes, ears and paws.  He is stuffed with excelsior and weighted with stainless steel shot. His mohair and paw pads have been both aged and distressed, to emulate an antique bear. He is missing tiny patches of mohair and has excelsior showing through the holes in his paw pads. Tictoc wears a matching two tone clown hat and collar from hand dyed wool felt, and decorated with tiny vintage bells.  The hat and collar have also been aged and distressed and are removable.
SOLD



MISS ROSEY PINKERTON:  Miss Rosey Pinkerton is 6 1/2 inches tall. She is a made from hand dyed pale pink German mohair.  Miss Rosey is fully jointed, has German glass eyes, sparse waxed nose and permanent shading on his nose, eyes, ears and paws.  She is stuffed with excelsior and weighted with stainless steel shot. Her mohair and paw pads have been both aged and distressed, to emulate an antique bear.  She is missing tiny patches of mohair and has excelsior showing through the holes in his paw pads. Miss Rosey wears a white cotton pinafore, made from an antique child's dress.  It has a few worn spots and marks, but it adds to the charm.  Rosey's pinafore is removable.
SOLD
 



TAMERACK THE CLOWN:  Tamerack is one of my tiny clowns - he is 4 1/4 inches tall and is made from cream and hand dyed sage green short, plush, German mohair.  Tamerac is fully jointed, has German glass eyes, sparse waxed nose and permanent shading on his nose, eyes, ears and paws.  He is stuffed with excelsior and weighted with stainless steel shot. His mohair and paw pads have been both aged and distressed, to emulate an antique bear.

TEDDIES OF MOUNT HOLLY

I am delighted to say that two of my latest bears will be available at Teddies of Mount Holly, a gorgeous little shop in Mount Holly, New Jersey.  I defy anyone to visit the shop and not purchase something.  I went in thinking I could resist, but no, I ended up with TWO bears and I'm not even much of a collector.  So, if anyone wants more info on these two, just contact Pat, at www.teddiesofmtholly.com  Thanks for peeking I appreciate it :o)

LAZY SUMMER DAYS

A few weeks ago, we found out about a lovely little nature park in our area.  We checked it out and we amazed at how tame and curious the local wildlife was, so we decided to take our grandson today.  Well, what a great time.  There were swans, ducks, song birds, rabbits, squirrrels, and chipmunks, all waiting for a free food handout and they weren't disappointed.  Corson was especially taken with the hoards of cheeky chipmunks, just waiting for their next peanut lol!  They were running circles around him, trying to get his attention, and they did.  It was such a fun day for all of us, after our grandson had worked so hard at his hockey workout.  We'll go back in a week or two with more food, when we can stay a little longer.  Enjoy the pictures. and if you click on them, they should enlarge for you :o)

HAPPY CANADA DAY

We've had such a special Canada Day weekend.  I don't post as many pictures of our grandson any more, but these were taken by our daughter this weekend, down at the lake, in their subdivision.  They discovered the swan they have dubbed "brown bread", for her preferences in food, had had babies!  The pictures are wonderful and I wanted to share, so our family and friends can see how much Corson has grown.  Enjoy!
