this sweet bear instantly reminded me of my old steiff teddy bear i had when i was a little girl. it was the first thing my dad bought me when he and my mom adopted me. i used to dress "him" up in my mom.s lacy slips.
thank you so much for bringing me such lovely memories. i would love for her to come and live with
"throtmorton" he would be a very good friend.
happy day
