Mr. Bear, a Well-Loved Old Friend

This is Mr. Bear. As you can see, he's seen many years of love. He wasn't always that color. He didn't always have patches. He also used to have a left eye. However, he recently discovered that he likes himself this way, considering that his beloved mistress made him so. This rambunctious mistress has grown up and gotten married, so he often finds himself reminiscing on the same front step upon which, years ago, many a tea party was held. His mouth used to curve up ever so slightly into a tiny smile, but the years without play have made him a little melancholy. Actually, his face used to look quite a lot like this when his mistress was young, too, except he frowned with exasperation as he was dragged through the garden time after time. Thankfully, there's a patch for that.
His mistress never meant to harm her beloved friend; however, she never seemed to realize that teddy bears don't really drink tea. Right now, Mr. Bear only wants to be loved by another little master or mistress who needs him. Considering his petite stature of about 5 inches from ear to foot, he would make a lovely friend for a doll. He's really not very suitable for actual children, considering that he's been aged considerably with a great deal of paint.

A Week at the Beach

I've been at the beach for the past week, and how relaxing it was! I spent my birthday by the ocean, as I do every year, and I quite enjoy not being pale! However, I've missed my blog, and my Etsy will be out of vacation mode tomorrow. Hope everyone is enjoying summer!
