Anchors Aweigh

My signature bears are US Navy Teddies. My Dad was a naval officer and my mom was a devoted Navy wife. We traveled a great deal. It was a wonderful life. My parents are both buried in Arlington National Cemetary. Here is my newest Navy Bear. She is quite large at 16" and fully jointed. She is made from distressed Schulte mohair and wears a midday blouse and skirt. She has a tag which is a copy of a World War II recruiting poster.She goes up for sale today on Arts a Flutter and on my web site.
