I've been a serious teddy bear collector for 20+ years, However I've been an artocphile all my life. I have one teddy left from my childhood, as all my other Steiff bears were stolen from that time period. I collect antique & New Bears.... Steiff, Hermann & Artist bears. My Bear of Choice is usually the classic style, but you never know when a bear is going to call your name and you can't live without them. My Hug is huge....consisting of the small to the large and every kind of bear inbetween. Besides Stuffed bears...I also collect carved bears, porcelain, books, antique pink paw bears.......etc etc etc! We won't talk about the dolls, Santas, & bear friends that I also collect.....LOL I will leave that to the imagination.......:D I've been married 33 yrs. Am a Mom of 2 and Grandma of 5 ..... We also share our home with 3 rescue dogs and one crazy cat. We live on a mt. in the woods in Washington State USA....when you travel to my mailbox (1 mile down the dirt rd. from our house ) you can see Mt. St. Helens. I adore teddy bears and all that go with them !!
