When I was a kid, I often had nightmares about bears...the big black bears that would be coming to get me, walking on their hind legs, front paws reached out as if to pick me up and bite my head off or something. I would wake up shaking in my boots....ok, I wasn't wearing boots but you get the picture.
The hand-made bears that my friend, Kristina makes and sells are nothing like those enormous, scary creatures that stalked me in my dreams. Hers are cute and cuddly and gorgeous. Here's a picture of one wearing what I would call a vintage-looking bed jacket. Adorable!!
