Thad... my newest little bear

Thad is a little hand sized bear... standing 6" tall. He was made from matted sparse mohair with Ultrasuede paw pads, black German glass eyes and perle cotton nose and accents. He is cotter pin jointed, stuffed with premium polyester fiberfill and weighted with steel shot.
Thad is wearing a "T is Thad" necklace... and I found a cute little vintage tin Ohio Art child's cup and saucer for him.
His picture will be in the August "Bears & Buds" on-line magazine. After that issue comes out, I will post him on BearPile

Whoo whoo ...made it to 500+ Giveaway

The giveaway is one of my little spiky mohair hedgehogs and his acorn pincushion. He measures, just so you have an idea of his size, 3 inches from nose tip to back. He has German glass eyes, perle cotton nose, polyester fiberfill and leadshot filling and an Ultrasuede face.

Now all you have to do is take a look at my Artfire studio and come back and comment on my blog. Lili, my 7 year old granddaughter will pull a name from a hat on her aunt's birthday July 27th. May the best "person" win!
If you aren't able to comment ...for whatever reason... just email me by clicking on the "contact me" button middle right hand side.

Whatever you do... please make sure I can contact you!
