Vintage Teddy Bears...

Teddy friends have been a favorite to paint since I was in college.
They sit in the studio alongside my needle felts and
line our mantel at Christmastime. 
They are good sports, willing to sit & pose for various photo references...
Kind enough to wear a pin that I have made~
Content to display a bunting of my pen & inks!

These two prints are made from my original watercolors.

They are sweet baby shower gifts~ 
I always try to purchase receiving blankets from the shower registry.
I place the print inside a shirt box, protect it with tissue paper &
Wrap the box with the receiving blanket!
Sweet & unique~

Hope your Friday is off to a great start, Sweet Friends!

Some of my favorite fabric sketches of yours are of teddy bears. So sweet to see them featured in prints of your original watercolors! What a perfect start to my day!

Smiles, hugs, and blessings!

I always adore your art and to give as a baby shower gift with the receiving blanket wrapping is such a great idea. Happy Creative Hearts...
