bears and rabbits.

i was flipping through one of martha stewart's magazines and came across these precious handmade stuffed animals by fox and owl. they're ever so stylishly vintage and would look quite at home on a vintage sofa piled amidst the friendly pillows.

the bears bring to memory a similar-looking stuffed bear of my maternal grandparents'. he wore a red checkered button shirt, red pants, and had the same scruffy fur. when i was a young'n, i preferred new toys to old ones (even if the toy was new but looked old, i wouldn't be interested); i hadn't yet acquired that taste for the vintage look. makes me sad to think now that he may not have gotten much play time. i hope he's well in whatever home he ended up in amongst my siblings and cousins.
