Oh what a great thread this is- I LOVE seeing pictures of other peoples hugs!
I'm very new to teddy bear collecting- but a few little darling bears have found their way into my nest- their little sweet faces always make me smile!
In the first picture is my small hug of artist bears; Little Teto & Konatsu (by Kyo Nishihara), Dream bear (by Whendi's bears) and Monti (by V. Galli).
In the 2nd picture the little bears are chatting to my beloved old childhood bear! Little Teto is fearless as always and has climbed on top of the old bears head, pretending to be a hat!
Oh me too!!! I LOVE seeing other people's hugs It also gives me new ideas on how to display mine. I am very fortunate that I have some built in shelves in my tiny cozy apartment. I just LOVE it! Here is my recent display. I love changing it :)
From the top left going to right and then down are Casey Lion by Barbara Burke, A sweet white bunny by Cathy Knapp, a Terrier pup by Susan McKay, Fairy bear by Cathy Knapp, 2 lovely ellies by Daphne Blau, little Sandy lion by Daphne Blau, underneath Sandy is a sweet little bear by Jackie Melerski, then 2 more bears by Daphne Blau and finally a magnificent lion by Judith Eppolito.

Thanks for explaining that Ariane. I was getting a little bit confused as I have a 27cms Steiff known as 'The Artist's Bear' I bought off QVC a few years ago. He is very sweet, like a mini PB55. :D
Hehe, the Steiff teddy bear in your avatar is the same as mine:
He came from Teddy Bears of Witney, in Oxfordshire. I liked him as soon as I saw him. :)
