**New Bears in Progress&Teddy Goodies shopping spree!**

Hi everyone,its nice to be back to give an update of my new works in progress.I haven't posted in over 2 weeks because I was stuck in limbo with making new bears(more on that later!).Before we get to that I am happy to share the new teds in progress,I am very pleased with the way they are turning out.I am striving for an old antique look and think I'm getting close.The large bear with the white muslin body is my LARGE 15 inch folk art ted which will be transformed into an old looking circus bear.He is shown looking very white&bright but once completed he will look ancient lol.Second group(2 on left)are antique style mohair bears,fully jointed.Golden bear is 6.5"and little white bear is 5 inches tall.The folk art teddy bear is quite large measuring 15 inches tall.My favorite ted in the making is the red felt bear that I have been obssessing over to give a true traditional antique style.He is also 5 way jointed with a broader shoulder style and streamlined body design.He is 8 inches tall.Next comes pics of all the goodies I got for the new bear designs!My brain has been on overdrive thinking of new ways to decorate my bears with vintage themes.I found beautiful tags with adorable children,old style circus tags ,tiny bells and keys(you can see how tiny in my hand!)bottle caps and downloads to make my own tags and pendants for the bears.Most of my items were found on etsy which has wonderful and unique items.I know they will look fantastic for an old looking theme and cant wait to start decorating my teds.Now the reason for the delay is I needed to order tiny glass eyes and tee pins(joints) for my med bears.I had to find an easier pin to turn because the thick steel cotter pins were getting impossible for me to turn.Long story short~~the pins were on back order held up in customs so that meant my glass eyes would also be almost 2 weeks late ugh...good news is everything arrived and the new tee-pins turn like butter.I can't even express how much I LOVE these joints.So thats about it for now but I will be posting new pics once the bears are completed and wearing their new goodies!~~~~sharie

~~New Antique Style Siamese Kitty nearly Completed~~~

Hi everyone!~~~~I have been keeping this kitty a secret work in progress and am happy to announce she is nearly completed!The real kitty in the photo beneath her was my inspiration for this siamese kitty.She gives me a giggle everytime I look at her.don't we wish we could dress our kitties up like this lol.I was hoping to have her listed on ebay auction this evening but I just couldn't make it happen.It took almost all day to get her near completetion plus I was finishing the antique style bears in the pics on the bottom.Not too mention my fingers are all shades of colors from the dyes lol!I also had problems with the lighting being too bright for kitties photos,her coloring is a bit washed out.You can look for her auction on Sunday evening along with my etsy shop update with the mini antique style bears.Be back soon with the finished kitty/photos~~~~~Sharie

It's been awhile since I had the chance to get any new bears and friends listed but I am happy to share the gang who...
