Who Dwells There!

Hello my friends! I sure hope each and everyone of you are enjoying the start of a beautiful week. Sitting at the table a few days ago busily finishing a wash cloth I was knitting, I began to smile. Oh how I enjoy the beauty of candle light. With a giggle I realized just how much a person can learn about another just by visiting their home. Our homes tell a story about the people who dwell there. My sweet Mother was a lover of angels, and indeed when visiting her you knew it as soon as you walked through her doors! For beautiful angels were everywhere!:o) For Mother, a room was not complete unless an angel dwell there. So I thought I would share a little of me, little bits and pieces you would find about my home that tell a story about the folks who live there! Enjoy!

A teddy bear loving crafting woman dwells there! :o) This was really fun, and I have plenty more teddies and bear stones to share with you! Grandma Beatrice, my beloved mohair bear, was so happy to get her picture taken, but Mrs. Qwiggapple, Jodie Bear, Grandma Beatrice's granddaughter Melanie and the gang were all in an up roar! :o) I promised to take pictures of them soon!:o) You all have a beautiful week!

You have not been hugged
unless you've had a
teddy bear hug!

Smiles....

Hi Beverly...I love the Boyd's Bear and Grandma Beatrice!! I used to collect Bears...Boyd's and others...but had to get rid of them in one of my many, many moves.

How are you doing?

~Blessings,
Jan

Beverly, I love Boyds Bears and all teddies. Yours are all especially lovely. What jumps out most to me from your photos is your femininity. Am I right?

Back when I had a sewing room ;) most all of my teddies lived there. Now, they are on a long vacation until I can figure out a new home for them. Three still sit in my mom's new room, and two are in my family room. I miss the others, but it's for a good cause.

I also collect bears! I love the different looks on their faces...unfortunatly, the rest of my family doesn't share my love and I think when I'm gone they might all go to GoodWill!

Mary Isabella and Kiley too! said...

My daughter collects bears. When S. was little I decorated our Christmas Tree one year with bears. She love it so much. I am using one of the tags I got from you as a bookmark. every time I use it I think of you and how your hands touched it before mind and how our hearts touch each other daily...m...

I can BEARLY stand it! I didn't know you collected those! Is there anything not to love? My boys are now rejecting them from their bedrooms! What's a mother to do???

Tracy said...

Hi, Beverly! It's teddy bear heaven at your place...what fun!My mom is a HUGE fan of teddy bears, and has countless Boyd's Bears. So this post has me thinking of her and smiling too. Your home is delightful! It looks a very cozy, happy place. And fun to see creativity in progress--I like that! ;o) Thanks for sharing more glimpses of you! Oh, and thank so much for the lovely message you left at my blog--we are over the moon happy to be aunt & uncle again to a beautiful new niece and can't wait to see her soon! Happy weekend ahead, my friend ((HUGS))

Wow, what a beautiful stone bear collection. Great photos and a fun glimpse of so many things that are meaningful to you.

Hope you have a great weekend!

I saw your blog listed on Gracious Hospitality and decided to visit because I love all things tea. I enjoyed seeing the things you love in your home.

A few months ago I bought a curio cabinet at a "my wife left me for another woman" sale and it came with several of those Boyds bears figurines for free. I also got several free Precious Moments figurines with it. I couldn't believe it.

Margaret Cloud said...

Thank you for the wishes and you have a safe and fun Thanksgiving.

Hi Beverly, I love bears too, though I prefer those that are huggable but still I like your sweet collection too.

I have been having so much fun catching up on all the beauty here! From "turkey coma's" to "Boyd's Bears," there is inspiration abounding here. Mostly I love the way your heart mingles with all of the beauty!

Happy Weekend!
