A very big bear named Boyfriend

A silly personal post for a Friday! For about a year now I’ve been wanting to find a giant teddy for photoshoots. Ideally I wanted one of those hideous unnaturally colored poorly-made stuffed toys of the 1960’s as I so love tacky vintage things.

So when I saw this very large brown bear at a thrift shop for $6 I had to have him! Even if he has really nowhere proper to sit in my apartment presently.

I carried the big bear home under my arm, to the delight of passersby (or curiosity). The bear rode the streetcar beside me home in his own seat.

Of course my cats were a bit surprised by the new addition to our household. Initially wary of the bear Goblin decided his lap was a very good pillow and kept trying to settle on top of him. While Atticus with giant wide eyes peered around table legs to examine this giant animal, it took him 2 hours to figure out the bear was not alive……

The bear has been named Boyfriend and now lives in my apartment. Taking up a great deal of couch space presently. I can’t wait to get him modeling with us!!!! 😀
