Buttercup arrived..

... and, it took almost no time at all.  She is Canadian.... didn't have too far to come... and Shelly sent her Express... wow!.... it's always such fun to see things so soon after admiring them on a site.  Check out Gingermelon ....for a bunch of cute little bears, dolls and elephants too.

I used to have an elephant when I was just a tiny kid..... but, haven't had one since.... it's time.
And I promise I won't carry her around in such an unladylike position!



















Here is my new little bear buddy, Buttercup.
She is softest pale yellow with yellow and pink tiny flowered fabric ears and body.  She has a little pink felty rose in her "hair" ..



















Her little feet are velvety soft and one sports a miniature heart of the same fabric as her ears.  Around her neck... a silver charm... a heart in an envelope.  Every part of her is carefully thought out and I love her.




















The TBs (table bears) engaged her in conversation the moment they saw her.  Scooter rode past regularly waving and trying to get her attention....

Oh, hai.....I'm over here...yooohoooo... on the scooter?.... maybe I should try my no feet manoeuvre  to get some attention.. but, then again...maybe not....














She's got a few inches on this bunch at 5 inches seated ...but, they said they will introduce her to the CBs (that would be the 'curio bears') tomorrow..... just for the heck of it....

Thanks so much for little Buttercup Shelly!

Buttercup is SO precious! I love how big her head is in comparison to the rest of her body. It's great that the table bears are so gracious and welcoming! ;o)
