HAPPY 4th of JULY everyone!! What a wonderful day to think of all our freedoms and blessings. What a wonderful day to think about all the brave men and women who serve and protect our great country!! THANK YOU ALL!! It's also a great day for decorating and breaking out all our red, white and blue. Be sure to fly the flag!! For doll and bear collectors it's always fun to dress our special little treasures in holiday wear. So, I decided to make a fun table scape by using my sweet bear friend "Bear-stie Ross" to help celebrate Independence Day! It's really fun to dress these cute bears and dolls in vintage baby clothing. This little bear is wearing an adorable 1950's red cotton dress with white collar and cuffs and the most terrific white smocking across the chest. Tie a sweet bow on her head and cluster birdhouses, flowers, and of course lots of flags and you've got a very amazing and unique centerpiece. Your family and friends will be very impressed. And you can have a great excuse to show off that darling doll or bear that you love so much. This kind of display would be perfect for your buffet table, coffee table, a picnic table, an entry way, on your front or back porch, or anywhere you'd like to add a little holiday spirit. Remember vintage clothing always makes dressing your bear, doll or baby and memorable experience. So think VINTAGE!!
