Casper Bear

Posted on October 14, 2011 at 8:40 AM

My beautiful Chocolate Labrador "Casper Bear" had his second knee surgery last week on Tuesday 4th October (luxating patella). The operation was a lot more problematic than the last knee but Casper is doing well. He will be having his staples removed in a few days and then we will be preparing for his hip replacement in the new Year.

This photo was taken 5th October when Casper returned home after a night at the veterinary hospital. He was in some pain and not feeling too happy, hence the sad face, BUT, he is well on the mend now and back to his happy old self and getting into allsorts of mischief as usual. What would we do without him! He is such a preciouse boy!

Christmas Give-A-Way

Posted on October 13, 2011 at 1:50 PM

Please remember my Christmas Give-A-Way draw to win


A 10inch mohair Teddy Bear

Each year I plan to have a Christmas Draw for all my customers who have purchased a "Genista Bear" from me throughout the year, whether that be from here on my Website, my Etsy Store, a Teddy Bear/Craft Fayre, my Blog or from me directly. I will put your name in the draw once every time you purchase a bear from me,twice if it's your second purchase, three times if it's your third purchase and so on so the more bears you purchase, the more chances you will have to win. For example if you have purchased three bears from me you will have 6 chances of winning.

Click on "Twiglets" photo for more information. 

Draw will take place on Christmas Eve at 5pm GMT

Thank you for looking

Beary Hugs

I have been very busy all Summer with my NEW DESIGNS.

* Genelefumps

* Jijome Bears

* Smolannie Anime

* With You In Mind Series - My New "Genista Bears"

They are just off the drawing board and I am busy sewing them up till my fingers drop off (they are all hand-sewn). I will be back from my caravan vacation in a few days and hope to get my completed creations on to my website and blog asap.

Please keep an eye open for them.

Here is "Milly" ( a sneak preview) the first of my new design "Genista Bears" who is now complete. She is however NOT FOR SALE as she is going into my own collection as the first of my new designs. However, I can make another MILLY for you if required.

Hope you like them

Please meet "Daisy" a 7 ins lady bear from my Vintage Dreams Collection. "Daisy" is just a tad over 7 ins tall, a traditional little bear (extra long arms/legs just like the old style bears), as are all my Vintage Dreams Teds. She has been created from a lovely pink mohair with co-ordinating paw pads, fully jointed, black boot button eyes, cotton nose (worn), cotton claws/stitching. "Daisy" has been gently aged to give her that worn/loved look. If you like old looking bears then "Daisy" is just right for you. She is now on my website and in my Etsy store!

Hope you like her!
