Boggy Bottom Bayou's Blog Sale! Heating up for Tommorrow!

Little Scare Bear

I am delighted to present to you Boggy Bottom’s Blackwater Bears & Dolls tm. Boggy Bottom Bayou’s Blackwater Bears & Dolls are a combination of my long love for folk art primitives and my even longer love for bears (way back when I was little!).
He is made out of muted gold,stained and distressed, very dense and wavy Schulte mohair. His paw pads are 100% Merino wool felt and his eyes are German hand blown glass. His nose is hand stitched and has been waxed to achieve an aged leather appearance. Scare Bear has clown face detail painted and hand-stitched to his cheeks. I have painstakingly distressed his fur to a well worn and loved look.

Scare Bears's hat is black felt and is adorned in fall colors. A toile painted wooden heart sits in the middle of his bow tie and his prim tag is attached by a rusty safety pin. Scare Bear is holding a rusty tin pumpkin garland.
This is not intended to be a toy for children or pets
This sweet little bear may go home with you for 75.00 plus travel fare. Please email me for purchase.
