My Mink Teddy Bear

I have been to busy as usual this week. I have a very high energy level and stay busy all the time. If I am not working on something in my studio then I am working on something in the house. My house is very large, way more than Darrell and I need so have a lot of up keep. Would love to downsize to a smaller place but where we live it is very hard to sell. Property here is passed from generation to generation. Sure don't need all the upkeep as we get older.

Well on to the good stuff, Like I have been telling you we found a little of everything in the old house we have been cleaning, Thank God we are finished with the cleaning, Found this Mink Stole and it reminded me of the little mink teddy bear I have. My Mom had a mink stole years ago that a sister had given her, She gave it to me and I took it to a lady who worked the Gatlinburg craft fair with me, Can't remember her name. She made in into a teddy bear for me. He now sits on a bed in a guest room. Just goes to show you everything has a purpose. I love turning something old in to something new again.

Be sure and enter our next give away by leaving a message.

Judy - That teddy bear is darling. Just the sweetest face ever! It's a shame that people don't wear mink anymore but what a great idea to make the stole into a bear. I'll bet you'll cherish it forever!
