Which one would you choose?

I have been really slack with my blogging recently so I apologise if you keep coming back to see what I've been up to and all you are seeing is pink from the last post!
The computer doesn't seem to want to turn on today so I am working on the lap top and of course there are no photos of mine stored on here so I will have to do some surfing of photos to share with you...:(
Master 6 is home from school today - upset tummy (nothing serious and I think he is playing on it quite nicely). At present he is trying to beat his brothers score on "Arthur and the Invisibles" DS game....Mmmm!
Mum and Dad were here on Wednesday and took me out to lunch. They were supposed to come on Tuesday (my brother's anniversary) but they had a funeral to go to. Of all days to go to a funeral eh?
Anyway we had a really nice day together and lunch was lovely. We went to the Crown Hotel in Buninyong then ended up at "The Vintage Garden" (gorgeous shabby cottage homewares) and "Bear Hugs" (across the road).
Oh my goodness "Bear Hugs" is a very dangerous place.
"Woody"
I'm not a real teddy bear lover but I did fall completely head over heels for an English Teddy Bear called "Woody" made by a company called "Charlie Bears" (make sure you have a look at them...that's all I'm going to say). I may have to sew, sell and save to bring him home with me. The lady who owns the shop is a teddy bear collector and she has some of her teddies on display in the shop. She said that "Woody" comes and goes very quickly so maybe I should just go and be very naughty and bring him home with me...
"Diesel"
But then, of course, there is "Diesel"

"Kojak"
and "Kojak" and.....I could go on, and on, and on....
I can see, now, why people collect Teddy Bears!
Which one would you choose?
It will not be easy.....Hee Hee!
Have a great weekend, Kathryn. XX

Kojak is looking very cool and laid back isn't he ? Very hard decision .....

Hi Kathryn,
Sounds like you had a wonderful day with your parents. I think you should spoil yourself and take a bear home with you, for sure! My favourite is Woody, but I think they're all wonderful with great personalities... is the fur as soft as it looks?!!
Warm wishes, Vikki :-)

The Pink Poodle said...

Diesel has an enquiring look to his face that is rather endearing. I can't decide between him and Woody. Cherrie

A Stitch In Thyme said...

I would choose deisel! Something about him that just speaks to me!!

Adorable.

Bear Hugs said...

Hi Kathryn,
Sue here from Bear Hugs and The Vintage Garden. Yes, both shops are mine :))))) Thank you for your lovely comments and visit - I remember you and your Mum. Woody says "Hi - I LOVE you, Kathryn!!!!" Now, I know why he wouldn't go home with a lady during the week - he was waiting for you to come back - bears do that you know!!!! One Diesel has come home with me - I couldn't resist him!!!! But then I have a Teddy Bear addiction - I think I need to start "Teddies Anonymous" for all of the bear addicted out there - I couldn't be the only one - could I????? Look forward to seeing you again. Woody is waiting very patiently :))))
