**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
