Here's what's on the table Mabel...

Everyone meet, "Arthur".

Arthur is an old soul comprised of Schulte German mohair, German glass eyes, cotter pin joints, wool felt paw pads, a perle cotton nose, mouth and claws.  He is stuffed with raw seed cotton and needless to say, lots of love.  All this furry goodness is topped off with a gentleman's antique bow tie.

He is a dear of a bear that makes one find it hard to resist touching, hugging or holding.

Yesterday as we were out on the front porch doing the photo shoot for his listing, I picked him up when I was done and he leaned into me as if to say, "I love you".  It made me smile.

Dear, sweet Arthur will be listed [here] later today.

On another note, while we were outside on the front porch, I was kneeling in front of the old chair that Arthur is pictured on and I happened to look down and I saw this...

 See the tiny paw prints in the brick?
Our front porch is made up of 19th c. handmade bricks and in the 20+ years that we have lived in our lil' old homestead I have never noticed these little paw prints from so long ago.

Such an endearing find and a pleasant surprise too.

Have a lovely day! 


  1. Arthur is totally charming! I don't think I could ever pass him by without stopping to give him plenty of hugs and kisses. What a nice friend he'd be! ... Your paw print discovery is really something! xo :)

  2. Hello tj. I just LOVE Arthur, he's wonderful.

    How amazing to find those tiny prints after so very long :)

    Wishing you a lovely day, doreen
