"Aye Aye Captain!"

After visiting the coast in France I felt inspired to create a sailor boy, so here he is all brought to life. His name is Captain and he has a sweet navy blue mohair outfit and vintage scarf.

He has always wanted to be a sailor and loves to tell the other bears all about his adventures on the high seas. However if truth be known the nearest he has been to water is the pond in his garden! As he sits there looking at his reflection in the water he watches the leaves floating by and imagines that they are vast gallion ships with big billowing sails. There he is up on deck behind the big wooden wheel with the wind in his fur and the other bears answer "aye aye Captain" to his commands!

You can see lots more photos of him on my website as well as all his adoption information. Take a look to see how you can make his dreams come true.

If you'd like to make him a part of your family then just drop me an email. Right, better get started on a couple of commissions. HUGS, Catherine and Captain xx

He's such a cute little bear and his little outfit just makes me want to give him a big hug. I hope he finds a loving home soon.

We are so looking forward to Captain coming to live with us. We live an hour south of Seattle and about an hours drive to the Pacific Ocean. Not only that, but the Tall Ships Festival will be here the beginning of July, so he will be able to visit there as well. Safe journey, my little friend, Marjie

Thanks everyone, I am delighted that Captain will be living with you Marjie, just the most perfect home he could have asked for. I do hope he will be with you in time to see the Tall Ships :) Catherine x

What a cutie! I like his little captain's suit too.

Have you seen the movie: "Dead Poet's Society"??? ... Robin Williams? There's a great line in there where Robin William's students refer to him as "Oh Captain my Captain" ... great movie line!

Sorry I've been absent. Working on getting back around. I missed our visits!
