bear_original I'm still gasping with excitement, but I just now received in the mail one of Christine Healey's beautiful mink RealDealBears!!

I actually won little Mika in a Bearwitched contest!! Me!! I love her bear_wub




Mika is barely 4" tall, just the most perfect and precious little minky mite. Did I already say I love her? bear_wub

Poor little thing. After traveling all the way from Australia, she emerged from her box to see a

crazy lady

jumping up and down and shrieking.  bear_wacko

Before she knew where she was, she was whisked outside for a photo. After a brush up and rest, I'll introduce her to the rest of my small hug.

Have a look . . .isn't she gorgeous?

bear_original Christine, MIka's romping in the fresh air as we speak . . . oops, dust bunnies in her fur . . . oops, tripping over her feet . . . oops, eating out of the dog dish . . . what a feisty little thing she is!

Thank you so much for making her in the first place, and then donating her to a great cause which turned out to be



I know what it's like to work with fur, and she's so tiny--the first mink mini I've ever actually seen and held.

Now I'm inspired to try a mini in mink.
