EJ ~ This is my first Barron bear. I have always thought they have a true teddy face! Maybe this won't be my last one bear_original ~ Debbie

Ooooh, I love Sharon's bears too!  This one is a beauty.  bear_wub
I also love the fact that she still makes really large bears; not many artists still make big bears.  bear_sad

These are my two very big Barron Bears: Jaxson Lee and Mindy.

  I understand completely: when I saw her bears in London at the Hugglets show, I just couldn't resist them either.  bear_thumb

  You are right Debbie, I do have a Pinintrest account and several "teddy bear" boards, but I keep forgetting to post my pictures there.  bear_wacko   I'll try better in future.  bear_happy

So excited I had to share! My Mickey the Murphy Bear arrived today and I made him sit still for a couple of photos. First one is right after opening his travel box and letting him get a couple of gasps of air before heading to the bear cave. Next one is feeling right at home in bear cave.  He has lots of friends and a can of marbles to keep him company bear_original ~ Debbie 5

Thank you Peter! I also read on his hang tag that his coat is made from antique quilt pieces. Makes him even more endearing bear_original  ~ Debbie

Here is another resident of the cave. This handsome fellow is Berne' by Lynda Joy Hite. He is attired in his authentic lederhosen and is accompanied by his little buddy Bruin Brau who was also created by Lynda.

Thanks so much EJ & Peter!  I have actually thinned my collection of duplicates of my fav artists in order to be able to acquire a few more bears of artists I don't have. I would love a Desert Mountain Bear and also would love a Gregory Gyllenship Bear! In the meantime, here are a few others bear_original Debbie 5

Thank you for sharing! Your collection is filled with personality and soul and is a wonderful source of a bear education for any aspiring bear collector. I love the Rose repair on the foot of your bear Victoria Rose! Proof that some of our best creative ideas come from necessity.  I'm usually more of a traditionalist but your blue & violet bears are amazing! I love all of them but the Kate Berlin and Barron bears were some of my favorites.
