Fabulous Felted Teddy Bears!

Happy Wednesday everyone!
I had to share this special batch of new felted bears Melanie just listed in her Etsy Shop!
They are handmade from cashmere that she felted and made into ornaments for only $10 each!

Oh my gosh! They are so cute!

Melanie's Holiday 2009 Collection also includes her new Wool Blanket Bears for only $12.50 each!
I love all of their expressions! Their eyebrows make me smile! She needle felts and embroiders each one by hand. They are 2 and 4 footed child safe made with natural materials.

Kris at Resweater is a fabulous resource for sweaters to upcycle. Please visit her shop and blog for amazing finds and projects!
She recently wrote a wonderful post about the before and after transformation of a raw sweater into one of Melanie's amazing bears!
How fun!
Please stop by and say hello to her! She would love to meet you!

I cannot believe it is almost Thanksgiving already!
Emmitt has been cooking up a storm!
I'm tellin ya, we are tripping over the piles of mini-meatloaves he is making and boxing up over here! He is busy addressing the boxes to ship to all of you. :)
I think he is watching too much FoodTV because I swear he is now saying Bam! and Yum-o!
Please stop by tomorrow because Emmitt has a special gift for you!

Gobble! Gobble!
Melissa and Emmitt

Hi Melissa & Emmitt! Are you going to give some meatloaf to the little bears? I bet they would love some.

I can't wait to get my meatloaf in the mail. I'm off to wait by the mailbox so I can eat it as soon as it arrives.
