'Winkie Dreamtime' a Victorian Bedtime Bear

'Winkie Dreamtime' is an 11" (12" with her night cap) La De Da' - Victorian Bedtime - Haute Shabby Girl Bear. Winkie views the world through premium glass eyes with sculpted and painted, leather eye lids accented with sculpted wet accents for a soulful gaze. Her legs/feet are a modified hockey stick design, long arms that hang gracefully and tight to her sides and slight concave chest to resemble a long loved bear whose stuffing is a bit worn from many hugs. She is created in a matted off white German mohair. She has been treated and hand tinted/painted in multiple shades of clay, bark, warm gray and blush pink then blended for a watercolor effect around the eyes/cheek area and for an aged, vintage appeal throughout the body. She is very well loved, plucked, weathered and worn to look like a bear from yester-year. Center seam head design. Her face has been needle sculpted to create a slightly upturned nose and petite defined chin. She is stuffed with poly, copper shot (belly) and the highest quality lavender buds, imported from Provence, France. Lavender is a La De Da' signature element added to all of my bears to enhance the "hug" experience with a gentle, therapeutic natural scent. Squeezing the buds helps release the scent, so you get a little bit of relaxation with every hug. She is a lovely weight, under one pound. As with all my bears, she has a hand sculpted clay nose which has been sanded, stained and painted in multiple colors for a leather-like effect and a painted mouth. Her ears are chubby and stuffed for a round full effect. Her arms and legs are disk jointed and her large head is wobble jointed for movement making her nod more for a shy, "pick me up" appeal. She wears a queenly night cap in a vintage stain trimmed with a charming ornate lacy trim. The cap has a bit of hand applied stars, moons and the word "Dream" finished off with shabby tassels. Around her neck is a timepiece brass charm surrounded by the same lacy trim for a bit of la de da' flair. She can not stand on her own but can be propped. All of my designs are one of kind, no two bears are alike. From my heart to your hand....I hope the La De Da' Bears bring you a smile.
