It's love....

Seriously....is this not the cutest thing you have ever seen? Besides a newborn baby...or that pair of Prada shoes you just HAVE to have....this has to be the cutest~!


I first fell in love with Karen O'Brien's "Quiet Companions" a number of years ago. When I first saw Karen's work it stopped me in my tracks. So much personality in these faces. So much sweetness. I was participating in the same show as Karen and I thought I would stop by her table "later" and claim a bear. I couldn't decide which one I wanted so I thought I would wait until there were less choices.

BAD DECISION.

BAD ~ BAD DECISION.

The show started, the doors swung open and WHOOOOSH....bears gone. I don't mean that there just weren't enough to choose from...or that the ones that were left weren't to my liking. I mean they were GONE.

Nadda, zip, zero....none left.

This time, at the Tinsel and Treasures show, I wasn't going to allow that to happen. I ended up bonding with this guy and I absolutely, postively ADORE him.


Wait...is there a bigger better word than adore? I mean just look at his face....he's about to tell you a secret, a little story...


And he tells me ~ every ~ single ~ day. He sits on his shelf...looking out at me...sending love with his eyes.

I am over the moon that I am the proud owner of this fella. I absolutely adore him...did I tell you that yet?

adore: to pay divine honor to; worship

Adore and Worship....I think those are the correct words. I adore him and worship Karen's talent...

I think he needs a friend.

p.s. click on the pictures to enlarge them...but beware...if you do...you will want a companion too!!

I have to laugh Colleen because I feel the same way about Karen's work. I've been lucky enough to purchase three pieces from her in the past... and each piece is just AMAZING!!!! I only wish she did more shows so I could pick up more of these bundles of love.

Hi Colleen,
Your new bear is a kindhearted soul.
Karen's bears are works of art!

Happy Autumn!

His face is absolutely precious! I am sure you love him ~Almost~ as much as Reagan and I love our "Halloween Merriment Little" we received a couple of weeks ago from Colleen Moody!
Thank you Colleen , we absolutely love her.
