"Teddy and Your Gift" Showpiece "Katarina"

I am excited to present to you "Katarina" and your Gift. 
 She is the 2015 showpiece bear for the Bear Hugs 4 U "Teddy and Your Gift" Online Bear Show beginning on July 9th.
"Katarina" is 17" tall.  I created her from a Wonderfully dense white faux fur with a very light tip. 
This fur is luxurious and makes a fantastic bear. 
I gave her an elegant embroidered tulle neck ruff with a matching tulle bow.
and the best part is.....she comes with a free gift for you!
See the gold bag in the background....inside is your gift!
Can't tell you what it is....but you will love it, and it will go very nicely with "Katarina".

"Maui" and "Leilani" 2015 Teddy Bear and Friends on Vacation Show Piece

I would like to introduce you to "Maui" and "Leilani".
They are my 2015 Teddy Bear and Friends on Vacation Showpiece bears.
The theme of this Teddies Worldwide show is "Making Memories", a favorite vacation memory.
My memories took me back to when we took our son and daughter to Hawaii for a family vacation.  Their Grandma and Grandpa were already on vacation there so we hopped on a plane and stayed for a week with them in Maui. 
The particular memory is the drive to the top of the volcano,  Haleakalā.  It started off great, but the constant curves of the road made us all quite nauseous.  We pulled off the road to stop for a minutes before turning around to drive down again.  That is when we saw the beautiful double rainbow!
"Maui" and "Leilani" are inspired by the double rainbow and the beautiful paradise colors of Hawaii. 
"Leilani" is 8" tall.  I created her from hand-dyed mohair. 
Around her neck she wears a lei that I made just for her.
"Maui" is a big 16" tall.  I created him from a combination of soft rainbow faux fur and a spring green faux fur.  His muzzle is French Tissavel. 
Voting has begun if you would like to pop over and put in your votes for your favorite bears.

"Miss Priss" 2015 Pet Palooza Show piece

I would like to introduce "Miss Priss".
She is the showpiece I created for the 2015 Pet Palooza Online Show.
She is 13" tall.  I created her from French Tissavel faux fur.  Her eyes are hand-blown and hand-painted green glass.  I gave her eyelids and long eyelashes. 
"Miss Priss" wears a wool felt hat I designed.  It is adorned with beaded Venice lace, a feather plume and trims. 
Around her neck, "Miss Priss" wears a large satin bow collar. 
One of a Kind prissy cat!
