I can just feel the love that's been put into these bears. Charlie you sure know how to point that out to us.

Oh, I love this Charlie...It instantly brought me back to my childhood where I would sleep with all of my stuffed animals so that I wouldn't hurt any feelings...they look so soft and cuddly! Great work!

Thanks so very much Peg .... it's been a joy to see all the "Christmas Toy Creations" .. I remember when tops and marbles and teddy bears and all these things were Christmas gifts! ... amazing that with the holidays upon us people took the time to create all these beauties ...  Hugs ...Charlie

.Beautifully done Charlie, like Erin I made room in my bed for all my stuffed playmates, even if there wasn't room enough or covers enough left for me!  Wonderful memories evoked by your great painting.
