  2. Lovely stork and doves! Though miss pig does not look so happy. Perhaps she just remembered her fear of heights? The bear is definitely happy. Amused perhaps? He has great feet!

    1. I love your bear Vee, now I'll have to post my bear as "king bear" too ;) Cyan's nickname is bear because his voice is so deep. So he had me paint a crown and scepter on this bear to put on a t-shirt, but he is not as cute as yours. Yours has tulle and attitude :)
