Bears Bears Bears: Priscilla


journal entry:

How did I keep track of things before I had a blog?  Every post is like writing a personal history. My history. My family’s history. Isn’t it wonderful?

Bears for Christmas. Three little children and three different bears. Each complete with a personality and a wardrobe to match. Not only does each bear have a name {which I chose} and a small trunk full of clothes {which I lovingly prowled the world to find} but each bear has trinkets and keepsakes and little pets and toys and a Tiny Tale  { made by me } which accompanies each bear and tells about her. (or him. . . sorry Skipper)

I started with one bear but couldn’t stop. First came Priscilla followed by Alice and then Little Skipper. Later I added a fourth bear named Rose for another little girl I love but Rose’s photographs will follow in a subsequent post. Here are some photographs of the first of  three very special bears in many of  her cutest outfits !


Priscilla the Princess

(also known in my tiny tale as The Old Bear)

{Going to Clara’s house for Christmas.}



Here are a few more clothes which are now neatly packed away in a sturdy traveling trunk.

Priscilla’s trunk. Waiting for Christmas morning .




When all was said and done,

Priscilla was ready to become a very special Christmas gift for a very special little girl.

A keepsake. I hope.

{my fingers are crossed}


Merry, Merry Christmas little Clara.  I love you. FOREVER !

p.s.  Priscilla came from a second-hand store.

(I found her on the bottom shelf.)

Her clothes came from Kid-to-Kid and Deseret Industries.

(They are mostly size 3-6 months.)

Her wonderful trunk came from Hobby Lobby.

(With a 50% – off coupon.)

Priscilla’s accessories came from around the house.

(hair things, jewelry, ribbons)

Little pets came from Deseret Industries for 50 cents each.

(Yes. It is true. I have every animal imaginable in my toy room)

They had a bath in the washer and a fluff in the dryer.

Like Priscilla . . . they were grateful.
