Hi friends,

Some of you may have wondered if I have given up on adopting new teddy bears.  Well, nothing could be farther from the truth  bear_whistle
Although (of course) I would love to be able to adopt many more bears and sometimes I have to be very hard on myself and say "NO";
but sometimes a bear just tugs so hard at my heartstrings, that I can't resist him or her.

One of those bears that I immediately fell in love with is "Arthur", lovingly made by our own Becky Chase (dangerbears).    bear_wub
His older, but smaller brother "Vincent" has been in my hug for more than two years and he has been begging me for a brother or sister.  bear_laugh
Arthur is about 18" tall and made from a lovely apricot coloured kid mohair with dark brown tips.

Arthur and Vincent are inseparable now and I think that they are an amazing duo.  So thank you, Becky !

Nothing like a bit of ice-cream on a hot day; if only someone would open the tub!

so happy together...

Oh, I wish I could see all the pics, but Joanie got excited when she saw one of her biological brothers, or oops, two of them.

Your photos are beautiful! Those are lovely classic bears and that dense tipped fur is getting harder to come by. (At least in the states it is)

Beautiful. The close up of them hugging is the most gorgeous photo I've seen.
I think I would die of happiness if I saw your 'hug' Peter.

Peter, have you thought of doing a photo book through something like Blurb?  They have a great range of options, and it costs you nothing to write and put up there, then people can choose to buy it.  You do have to buy your own too though  bear_grin

Katy, you have read my mind.  I have been checking out the Blurb site and I didn't know it was that easy to get your book published.  bear_thumb
