Bubs Bears Picnic!

If you go out in the woods today
You're sure of a big surprise.
If you go out in the woods today
You'd better go in disguise.

For every bear that ever there was
Will gather there for certain, because
Today's the day the teddy bears have their picnic.

Bubs Bears, to be exact.  This enchanting nursery song captures my mind every time I see a teddy bear.  

A "Bubs Bear" Picnic
Several months back I was drawn to a blog titled "Mutterings from the Moor" and found within it a place to live vicariously when missing my favorite place on earth.  Abby is a "mum" of 2 girls and a step-mum to one teenage boy.  She lives in a cozy cottage within the boundaries of Somerset, England.  Abby blogs about her sewing, her ducks and chickens and vegetable patch.  It should come as no surprise that such agreeable little creatures as 'Bubs Bears' are born within this charming setting.

Each hand made, with it's own personality, Bubs Bears holds far more then just filling.  Creating a custom bear from your child's keepsake clothing/blankets or your own special wedding gown, each one can be formed with an admiring measure of sentimental memories. 

Not just for children.  A teddy bear can bring much comfort to all.  On one occasion, Abby received an order from a woman who had recently lost her father.  The customer requested several bears sewn from her father's shirts so that she could share them with her loved ones.  

Abby also makes a 'Tooth Fairy or Prayer Bear', as well as covered buttons made from vintage fabric.

So, do remember, if you go out in the woods today... watch for Bubs Bears.

Tooth Fairy or Prayer Bear
Beneath the trees, where nobody sees
They'll hide and seek as long as they please
Today's the day the teddy bears have their picnic

Visit Bubs Bears, Misi or Etsy site to place your order.

(Oh, and I'm sorry if I got that song running through your head)
