One of my favourite activities in December is entering our big treasure trove shed, an adventure that begins with braving the heat, dust and spider webs and climbing over a mountain of storage bags and boxes in order to release our seasonal plush toys from their hiding places. As I think to myself “Where did you come from, I don’t remember buying you?” and “Ah there you are, I don’t recall putting you in there! ” I find myself wondering if some teddy bear magic and mischief may have taken place during New Year to Christmas hibernation.

A newcomer to the collection, not yet introduced to such dark and gloomy places,  is this beautifully dressed and decorated bear named ‘Mariah’. She was rescued from the bargain shelf of a gift shop just a few days before it closed down last month and sadly she is still looking a little disappointed because her baby sister was adopted by another family (oh the regret when I missed the opportunity to purchase both siblings). Comforting to know she will soon be surrounded and welcomed by other furry friends eager to make her acquaintance. Perhaps Mariah’s festive charm will tempt me to keep her on display all year round – or at least invite her to visit us for Christmas in July too……
