Little bear, up close

This little bear has won my heart. I am finishing up another BIG bear (just over 6 inches) and find that I am thinking of my next little friend. Here are a couple of "up close" shots. The one of Little Bear rubbing his eyes I will call "Miss You" for all the friends I won't get to see at a bear show this year. Sadly, there is no show scheduled for Atlanta and I will dearly miss going there and seeing the friends I've made over the past 10 years.

New Little Friend!

Little things have always intrigued me and little bears are no exception. I am drawn to the little ones at shows and found myself bidding on one charmer last week that eventually went for over $100 an inch! I decided to do some more experimenting with the little guys and am so in love with this first little one born of the challenge. He (or she, I think) has no name and if anyone can offer a suggestion, I'd love it! The real challenge in this photo was holding the little dear and taking the photo at the same time!
