Oh dear sweet Clare,   bear_original
I'm delighted you opened the box and let Posey Grace out.   There is only so much air packed in those boxes and it's such a long trip over the big pond.  Had you waited she may have been awfully growly, or even worse, turned an awful shade of blue by Christmas morning.    bear_shocked

Tickle me pink!  I'm so glad you like her.  I just know I'll love my little one when he arrives as well.  The bears and I are all so excited to meet him and have set up a little tea party for his arrival.  I'll have to take a picture......I know how much everyone loves pictures around here.   :dance:

Bless you TT'ers for all the lovely compliments.   bear_wub   You say the nicest things.   :redface:  It makes a really big smile on my heart, not to mention my face!!  You're all so very kind.  Thank you.

Warmest bear hugs from my heart to yours,

Aleta - I can only echo what everyone else has said - I love the wistful expressions on your bears faces - gentle reminders of a bygone era.

Clare - I'm glad you love her and I'm sure what you've sent Aleta is just as beautiful - looking forward to seeing those pictures too!
