{ Fuzzy Slippers & Mint Tea }

Ain't she sweet?

Fuzzy Slippers and Mint tea...
...they go together well, don't you think?
well I do.
Mint Tea helps calm my nerves before a show...
and tomorrow is set up.

and the "fuzzy" slippers aren't exactly intentional,
it just sorta kinda happens when you're working with mohair,
and distressing bears & such...

Speaking of Bears,
up there is a sneak peak of my lastest girl,
I haven't named her yet, but she is quite beguiling....
she's another 16" bear, from my own pattern...
she has reproduction Civil War-era foot pads and is 5X jointed with bolts & washers...
stuffed with old clean rags for a nice vintage feel...
Lavender-colored German blown-glass eyes, too...
her little dress is an antique,...one made long ago by someone who cared...
it is made from old feedsack fabric, with sweet little white milk-glass buttons...it is torn and tattered, but that's what makes it endearing, don't you think?

She is my favorite so far...
and will be accompanying me tomorrow for set-up...
any suggestions for names?

I'll take pics of set-up tomorrow,
...then I probably won't be here to post again until Sunday...
sooooo....wish me luck!
Blessings from the Farm,
Lori
