Inside the Envelope

Back in late 1991, I decided that I should make a special little pink teddy bear for a special little girl. She was the sort who carried her baby dolls around in the crook of her arm, their legs dangling below. I had a feeling that any bear she owned would also see the world precariously from about two and a half feet high – at least for a while.

And that’s exactly what happened. I did manage to take this somewhat lacking photo of the bear before she was off on her adventures way back then – before they were both off on their adventures.


 Photo from 1991

The other day an envelope arrived in the mail with this inside.

The not-so-little-anymore girl drew this of the first bear I ever made for her. The pink is subtle but it is there. Here’s a close-up of some of the detail.

What a divine surprise!  Now all I have to figure out is where to hang it – upstairs or downstairs.


  1. Oh how wonderful! I know you will treasure it as much as she does the bear!
    Hugs, Lisa

  5. This could not have been a more wonderful gift. What a perfect likeness. I love the bear and the drawing. I think I would have cried.

  6. Beautiful! So touching, and I know you'll cherish it. What fun it would be to see a photo of the bear today...but you can tell from the drawing that she has been dearly loved.

    Hugs to you!
