Teddy Bears

Madame Francesca

Once again, I am a busy bee and this is what I have been working on.
These bears are going to an Antique shop for a couple of weeks, in the hope of maybe someone wanting one in time for Christmas.
Mei Ling ~ has been adopted, thank you

Sometimes, there are just not enough hours in a day and with the days rushing by and getting closer to the holidays. I guess you will be feeling the same way.
Connery and Scottie

Admiral Montague Sommerset.
{The Admiral has the sweetest little Antique French medal }

They are going to be at John Stephens Antiques and this is the beautiful four posted bed that they are going to be lucky enough to rest on. They decided on displaying the bears on this fabulous French sofa, in the front window.
The shop is wonderful and if you are in the area, go and visit. 

I want to thank you for reading my blog and now I am coming over to visit and see how you are.
Such an auspicious day today, the 12th/12/12.

Hope that you enjoy the rest of the week


  1. Hi Carolyn!

    They are all soooo sweet! Especially Mr (Sean?) Connery and the Admiral!

    I'm certain they are all going to find lovely new homes for Christmas!

    Have a lovely weekend too,

    XOXO Lola & Nora:)

    PS I saw a video of the rescue dogs learning to drive cars in Auckland. Wonderful! I was wondering if they did OK this past Monday on live TV?!

  2. Dear Carolyn,
    You have touched my heart with these beautiful works of art.. If only my pockets were full, I would need to have one, but how would I ever pick! They are adorable... Wishing you the best.. I am sure they will all finds homes.

  3. Carolyn,
    These bears are precious, especially the Scottish bear. I'm not sure if I mentioned to you but my mom used to love teddy bears, and when she passed away, all of us were given one of her bears. Now, when the girls travel, they take their grandma's bear with them. I am so glad to know someone who loves bears as I do. I hope you are having a wonderful time this Christmas season, Carolyn.

  23. one of your bears is more adorable than the last!!!

  25. Dear Carolyn,
    Your bears are adorable, and so beautifully dressed, I am a bear lover as you, and know what big work it is to sew aND dress them. Yours are so lovely oldfashioned, and I guess you will miss them if they find new homes all :-)
    The place for selling is wonderful, and they will fit gorgeously in!
    I wish you good luck my dear-

  26. These bears are very very sweet!!

  27. Magical! It's a beary slumber party in a gorgeous four poster bed. If the store's not careful, I think your bears are going to fly away on that bed and have one grand adventure!

  28. OH! I saw a new post pop up named, "VICTORIA" but it isn'here! I will be back. But in the mean time, I am still loving these sweet bears! Anita

  29. Oh! How gorgeous they will look sitting on that stately bed ... My very favourite is Madame Francesca ... she has that certain ~Jeff be sais quoi~

  30. Hello Carolyn...
    Oh, your bears are just darling! I love the accessories and clothes you make for them. So sweet!
    I hope they will find forever homes for Christmas.

    On another note...I can hardly wait to see what you are doing with your renovations. Too bad the wallpaper didn't work...but I am sure the replacement will be beautiful.
    The new flooring sure looks lovely.

    Wishing you a happy week!
    Hugs, Nancy xo

  31. I never tire of seeing your beautiful work dear Carolyn.......Queen of the Teddy Bears.
