Three New Teddies in my Collection

In the last few months, I have gotten three new teddies for my teddy collection.  Most of my small collection is artist bears.

This teddy came from Japan and is by Rutsu.  She has small, wonderful mohair teddies with a vintage look.

This teddy came from Russia and is by Natalia Tolstykina.   She has a blog here that you can translate automatically into English.  The teddy is made of vintage rayon and is quite heavy.  I love the unique face and all the handwork on this bear.

The third teddy is by an internet teddy friend here in the U.S., Sharie Reetz.  Her website is here, and you will also find links to her blog there.  Her little mohair bears are brimming with character and are so endearing.

Here they are all together. :)
