Very nice site. I just loved looking thru all your bears, and the site was easy to navigate, even though I can barely remember any french from school.

Great job

I hope i will manage to have it in English too.
I will translate it myself if this is the best way to do...
I will ask Irène how she did to give opportunity to reach an english version just by clicking on the English flag.

Beary hugs,

Sophie, your site is very pretty, easy on the eyes, soothing and calm, feminine, and extremely easy to navigate.  As site design goes it's pretty terrific!  Did you do this yourself? 

I loved seeing your bears and still think MARRON GLACE is my favorite bear of yours.  The MARRON part reminds me of the 'heisse marroni' I used to see vendors selling from little, steaming carts, on the Bahnhofstrasse, in downtown Zurich every winter.  And the little cap is so elvish.  I love elves.  I should try making one sometime... that's how much I love them.

All in all it's really a delightful site and I just love the color combination you used with beiges and pinks.  Very calming and pretty! And your bears are just cute and whimsical and quirky and fun.

Nicely done!

Looking forward to seeing your English version of the site.

English version of my website will come soon, dear friends!
I made my website using the web editor included in and used too another web editor I have downloaded on my i-Mac (it is called Nvu). That is quite tricky to tranfer the modifications from Nvu to Freewebs, but still doable (surprisingly, I don't manage to publish modifications). so i just copy the html text from one to another.
I have to say that maknig a website nowadays is so easy when we don't have the knowledge of html language... Well, html is not that complex but not fun to use...

Thank you very much to all of you for your nice comments. Concerning the colours, I chose one of the templates proposed on

Beary hugs,
Sophie. :hug:  :hug:  :hug:  bear_wub  bear_wub  bear_wub

bear_thumb Well done Sophie!!!  bear_thumb  I have to say, I found it very easy to navigate, and my french is very rusty, to say the least.  My favorites were "Ugly" and your avatar bear  bear_wub   I got such a giggle out of "Ugly"....sometimes its so refreshing to see such a grumpus bear!   bear_wub

Thanks to all of you!
You are all so great friends for me!

If you visit again my website, you can see I have already begun to add pages in English. More translated pages will follow during the following days depending on how long a day I can spend on it!!! So all of you will be able to read it!
By the way, if you find mistakes in my English, PM me to tell me. My english cannot be perfect, but my website needs to show a perfect writting!!!

Are these translators really doing a good translation?... i am curious...
Matilda, I did not go to Oxford for studies but to work as a Senior Scientist at the Center for Ecology and Hydrology. I was doing environmental microbiology. i have finished my studies and got my PhD in 2003... not really useful for my teddy bear making!!!

Beary hugs,
