The Miserable Months! January 18 2015

Why is is that January and February go by so slowly? Maybe because it's cold, wet, dark ,windy or snowing!! Whatever the reason it's a time to look forward to the sunshine and warmth again.

The bear world seems to have ground to a halt. We are all recovering from Christmas excess!

New bears this month.

Three new bears from Evelyn, two French Toy and Novelty chaps, Brown bear and a Googlie to keep mine company and a lovely Jopi, Princess to join my new Jopi, Little Jobs.

Evelyn also has a bear very like Boots in the German section. They are still a mystery but there is one for sale on a well known site which is a Steiff. Is that what they are?
