Hi everyone,

It has been a while since I posted some photos of newly adopted teddies in my hug. 
That doesn't mean that I have stopped adopting bears.   bear_cool   Far from it, but many of you are on Facebook as well and will have seen my new companions there already.
However, I am very happy with these two French bears that joined my hug last week, so I would love to share them with you.  bear_wub

The big guy is called "Mistral", stands approx. 26" tall and is made from straight mohair, wearing a very fashionable waistcoat and bow tie.
The little guy is called "Jean", stands approx 11" tall is made from sparse mohair, wearing a woollen hat and scarf
Both bears were made by French artist Claudie Reymond, who trades under the name of "Ours des 4 saisons" (Four season bears). 
The last photo show my whole "ours des 4 saisons"-family.

I went a little nuts with this bear, because when I heard that Claudie was making him a waistcoat, I deciced it would be a great idea to give him a real pocket watch.  And to make the picture complete, I had the watch engraved with his name, date of birth and the name of the artist.  A little bit crazy?  Probably!  But he looks great.  bear_wacko

Beautiful, beautiful bears.  I love Claudie's work.  They are all wonderful, but of coarse the big guy in the waist coat is the show stealer.  The pocket watch is the perfect addition for him.  He is one handsome fellow.

They are lovely, Peter.  At this rate, you're going to need to start a Teddy museum! bear_original Wouldn't that be a great job!  Your home must be bursting with beautiful bears.
