Hello! I'm Quirky The Bear, The Blog's New Assistant Editor.
Hello! I'm Quirky the Bear and I'm nine inches tall. I'm a replica of an old bear from around 1915 that belongs to the collection of Teddy Bears of Witney in England. Carol Jean thinks I'm very funny and wise, and she loves to take me everywhere with her in her purse. I was created from orange and green distressed Mohair plush to make me look as much like my Grand-Dad as possible. You can see from the first photo of me, with his picture, how much I resemble him. I'm stuffed with straw and look very old, but actually I have many good years in front of me. I see a good deal with my wooden eyes, and am a great keeper of secrets because I have no mouth. The second photo is of me looking forward to last month's Trick-Or-Treating. I collected quite a lot of treats in my pumpkin. Carol Jean was afraid I would make myself sick eating all that Candy Corn, but I had to remind her that Teddy Bears eat a lot of Honey, and that's VERY sweet! (I communicate with CJ by telepathy. She understands everything I think! And I understand her pretty well too!) She says that I can help her keep this Blog going, as Assistant Editor, as some of the jobs are a little large for the Tiny Teddies to handle. For one thing, I'm better at typing than they are, because my paws are bigger! So it's been nice meeting you all, and you can expect to see me from time to time, sharing what goes on in the world of Teddy Bear Blogging. Teddy Bear Greetings, Quirky The Bear.
