Grin and Bear It

Edwin is a 19” lovable bear made of beautiful “batik” mohair. This look means that the fabric Edwin is made with has different shades within each dye that gives him an older look. This also means that no two are ever alike. He is a very unpretentious, loving bear that would make an excellent addition to any bear collection. He is poly and pellet filled with glass eyes and wool felt paw pads. ($230).

Heritage Puzzle, Inc.

Her lighthouse artwork with detailed pen and ink with watercolor wash are nationally recognized and sought after by many collectors. She gets inspiration from her on-site photos and prides herself on her beautiful accuracy.
