Picture Day For The Bears

I love each and every one of the bears that I create but I know that they are destined to go to their forever homes and so every time I finish a bear and it has had a photo shoot it goes away into storage to keep it as perfect as possible for its new home.

With each bear boxed up they rarely get to meet each other and I don’t see them together unless my wonderful collectors send me photos of their hugs (which I absolutely love to see).

When I finished Quentin and uploaded photos it was suggested that he looked like Noah’s brother so I wanted to photograph them together.

I think they definitely could be brothers, but they weren’t the only bears that fancied coming out of storage and so all of my bears came out for a photo day!

I had so much fun and I think the bears did too. Some of these bears have been waiting a while for a forever home but I know that when they do get adopted they will be in the best possible condition to travel to their new homes. Sadly they had to go back into storage for now but I am hopeful that it won’t be for too long.

Quentin liked meeting the other bears.

I can’t wait to create more bears and seeing them all together makes me really happy.

If you would like to adopt any of these bears please visit my Folksy shop. https://folksy.com/shops/MobyAndPuddle

We Visited World Of Bears In Taunton

For my birthday I was really lucky that my husband booked us a trip to Taunton with the plan to visit a bear shop that I had not been to before. Mr Webb is a wedding photographer and the month before he had been to Taunton for a wedding and stumbled across the bear shop, he saw a little bear in the window and said that he had to bring it home for me, that bear was Pantaloon by Charlie Bear.

As excited as he was to give me Pantaloon, the most wonderful surprise, he was equally excited to take me and the Webblings to visit the shop. World Of Bears is a bear shop spread over three floors of amazing displays. There are so many bears to see, the ground floor is completely Jellycat and Jellykitten which are adorable and the second floor is mostly more realistic animal plush but the first floor is where my heart almost burst with happiness.

Not only is the first floor a shop but it has some incredibly old bears on display, over 100 years old. They have bears that are tiny and those that are huge, from household names to artist bears and everything in between.

I was fascinated by the tiny bears, they had so much personality and flair, I would love to create some more miniature bears of my own soon.

I found it absolutely impossible to choose just one and since it was my birthday Mr Webb spoilt me rotten and we bought Cinnamon and Jollipops home with us. Of course Lilly and Harrison Webbling had to have a treat too and so we adopted a conker and a bunny to add to their ever growing collections of plush.

We had a fantastic time visiting World Of Bears and we will definitely be visiting again at some point, I have my eye on a few more adoptees!

Thank you for reading, Samantha.

Aurora The Bear

Please meet Aurora, inspired by the beautiful Aurora Borealis or northern lights as they are commonly called. Her fur is blue, green and a little black and she is incredibly fluffy.

I was really excited to create a bear with this beautiful faux fur and I think that she is the perfect size. Like all of my bears, she is weighted and wonderful to cuddle. Aurora already has a forever home and she is hoping that they love star gazing as much as she does. Her favourite constellations are of course Ursa Major and Ursa Minor, also known as the bears.

Aurora has beautiful little toes and an embroidered nose. Her fur almost seems to shift colours as it moves. Of course I am proud of all of my bears but this one was a special order for one of my amazing collectors who had the most amazing patience, waiting for me to recover from bronchitis and getting the Webblings ready for the new school term to start.

With a little black bow and my usual silver heart engraved with an ‘S’, Aurora is looking just fine for an evening beneath the moon star gazing.

By Samantha Webb

I had so much fun painting Auroras portrait to send with her to her new home, that fur was tricky to paint. All of my bears come with a little watercolour portrait that I hope shows just a little of their personality and the start of their story.

I hope you like Aurora and will pop by my adoption centre to see which bears might suit your hug or become the start of a brand new collection.

Samantha.

Guinevere

Guinevere
Beauty and grace follow little Guinevere around wherever she goes, a true natural beauty and she is adorned by the flowers that she loves but she always wears fakes because she can’t stand the thought of beautiful flowers dying just so that she can look pretty. Guinevere spreads happiness just by being kind, she believes that
kindness is the most
contagious thing on earth.

Guinevere absolutely loves flowers and her little needle felted headband has been made with love in her favourite colours! I hope that you like it too. If you think that Guinevere would fit in your hug you can find all of her adoption details here!

Ysabel

Ysabel
Ysabel is a white rabbit who prides herself on being right on time, not a minute early and not a minute late. She is not a fan of the misconception that white rabbits are erratic and she is on a
mission to prove that white rabbits are just as reliable as other woodland
creatures and as smart as owls for that matter!

I do not make bunnies very often but Ysabel makes me want to make more of them! She is so cute and has such a gentle temperament.

If you would like to find out how to adopt her you can find all of the details here!

Dani

Dani
Dani is a little party girl, she loves to have a good time with her friends and her
favourite night of the year is New Years Eve. Dani throws the very best parties and
everyone wants to be
invited.
Dani is the bear queen of selfies and knows just how to get a fabulous selfie with no trouble at all, it is all about the lighting, she will happily teach you!

Dani is so fluffy and cuddly, she found a new hug to join really quickly.
