2010 Christmas Photos

Just a few this time...
After our Christmas Eve gathering we went to Old Town and saw this Santa.

Merry Christmas!

Our Christmas Tree
I used decorations that looked like they could be found in nature. Pine cones, berries, leaves and "birds." (They are made of mushrooms).
And I made our wreaths this year. This one has pine cones and crochet bells, a stocking, Santa, gift, and Holly leaves. It hangs on the inside of our front door.
And our outside wreath with gold and red balls, and a big gold bell hanging below the bow.

Christmas in Old Town

Each year in Old Town Albuquerque, there is an event called Holiday Stroll. It is usually held the first weekend in December and includes many performers, luminarias and the giant Christmas tree lighting ceremony. 
Most of the businesses in Old Town go all out with lights and decorations. (No, that is no ghost peeking from behind that post!)
The red chile decorations are beautiful and can be seen no where else but New Mexico!
These lovely scenes can be photographed and enjoyed not just during Holiday Stroll but throughout the entire Christmas season.
There are also events most weekends during the entire month of December.

"Will You Take Me Home?"

That's what he seems to be asking with his sweet look. This is Bogie, my latest Bequest Bear. He is an OOAK sewn bear made from my own pattern, with beautiful camel colored synthetic fur. He stands 16" tall & is fully lined & double stitched. He has 5-way bolt and lock nut joints & is stuffed with poly-fil and poly pellets.
Bogie's nose and mouth have been hand-embroidered with black Perle cotton. The eyes are black German buttons with hand-sculpted eye rims that add tons of character. He comes with a sewn in tag and will arrive at your home with his COA (Certificate of Authenticity).
His introductory price is $125 + S&H but he is part of my Super Christmas Sale and is listed on my website on the Bequest Bears page for an even lower price through December 12th.

If you would like to answer his question with a definite "Yes!", don't forget everything purchased during my Christmas Sale will ship by the USPS deadline so you can have Bogie (or anything else that catches your eye) in time for Christmas.

New Eyes

I wanted to do something different for my teddy bears eyes, something that would make them more uniquely my own. The eyes on the teddy I am working on now have hand-sculpted eye rims. I'm pleased with how they came out and the character they give the bear.
Hopefully I will have this teddy finished in the next week or so and you can see images of the whole huggable cuteness! :o)
