This little guy is on his way from the Michigan studio of my stunnin' friend Pat Murphy, of Murphy Bears, to the birthday bash of Max von Spiegelfeld, who will celebrate his first year on Saturday.
Pat Murphy is a very talented and wonderful artist; she makes bears and felted wool critters, and collects all kinds of antique and vintage props, tiny clothes and accessories to go with the bears, owls, birds, squirrels...I think I've seen a squirrel or two in her menagerie...and every piece she makes is destined to become an heirloom. I mean it. They are absolutely stunning, as Pat herself is.
So, while we wait for this little guy to arrive, as well as Max's birthday, check out Pat's website at Murphy Bears to see what delightful creatures she comes up with!
