New Friends & Special Offers

What a busy time it has been in my bear studio! Lots of photos on this post, keep going down to see the Special Offiers!

I've just finished bringing to life two very different bears. Colby is a 17" baby bear cub with THE MOST gorgeous luxurious silky soft faux fur. He has a really unique colour mix. He is a bear that likes to help, especially when it comes to making honey cake, he'll be the first one there with his apron on and spoon ready for mixing! Sitting in your arms with a glass of milk and slice (or two!) of cake would make Colby one very contentend bear. If you would like to share your life with this very special boy then he promises to love you forever and ever! You can see lots more photos of him and all his adoption info on my Bumpkin Bears Website.
** Update - Colby is now ADOPTED**

Heather is a wee miniature bear created from Schulte Mohair which I hand dyed in this precious colour, inspired by the soft lilac haze of colour that the heather creates over the hills of Scotland. She gets up to all sorts of mischief, but with such an innocent little face all you can do is smile when you find her head first in the sugar bowl!! I lovingly hand stiched every tiny stich to bring this Bonny Lass to life. She is one of a kind and such a darling size at only 3.7" from the top of her ears to her tippy toes! All her photos and adoption info are on my Website.

** UPDATE Heather has now been ADOPTED to a special new home **

Hi, Catherine! Oh, but I love both Colby and Heather...they are adorable! Must say I'm especially taken with Heather--she has such a sweet "shabby-ness" about her...that she's already been well loved and cuddled! :o) Will you be making more miniature bears like Heather and Mr. Tibbles? They are special creatures. Wonderful offerings you've got on at the moment--very tempting! Love this post seeing so many happy bear faces. Happy weekend to you all ((BIG HUGS))

Love Heather in the tea cup! I also like the colour you have used on the mohair, very nice! As you know I love playing with the dye pot too!
Take care and have a good weekend.
Hugs Lyn xx

Hi Catherine,

Love all your new bears, especially Heather in the tea cup ~ she is a darling.

Also your cards are wonderful and the Spring flowers you have been showing.
Must have been lovely to get away to France for a few days ~ lucky!

Have a great week
