I've just visited your bears and have to tell you they are absolutely adorable! Your noses are fantastic. Their overall look is quite irresistible!! They look very 'finished' with attention to every little detail. They are just wonderful, Mandy!

Hi Judi.  Your heart is in England and mine is in America.  My wonderful sister lives in Florida and I feel as if part of me is there too. I long to visit - haven't made it yet but I'm hoping (and saving) to visit next April.  I live in Essex.  Not much you can say about it but it's home!  Thanks for your kind words of welcome.  Hugs Mandy
