Found these two little bears (mother and child) at a nearby thrift store. They're hand sewn (little tiny stitches) using felt, bits of fabric and trim. When I find handmade items like this, I often find myself wondering about the story behind them. Who, when, where, for whom, and why did they wind up at the thrift store or buried in a box at a garage sale? I bought these two for $5 and they now have a home on my desk.
