the Once upon a time bears Website was first launched!
I remember clearly it was a lovely hot Summers day and I took my very two first Antique bear purchases from my own personal collection Miss Merrylegs and Captain Rodney outside in the glorious sunshine to my Summer house to sit outside for their photographs taken so they could grace the front page of my Once upon a time bears website .
I had thought long and hard about a name for the website for several months that year and also the way in which I wanted to portray the bears and animals on the website especially in trying to show and bring their characters to life with a little story too about them all .
A Story about them was the key to my thought process and I thought then about their tales and how a childhood story and tale often used to commence with Once upon a time ......... that was it ! .....it suited my thought process perfectly for the website as the bears were also from a past time being Vintage and antique too so ONCE UPON A TIME BEARS it was !!
Over the past Eleven years a grand total of over 1300 old bears and animals have lovingly been rescued by me , cleaned , repaired , dressed and then photographed and then finally portrayed here on the Once upon a time bears website with their little stories all desperately hoping they will be adopted .
You have also lovingly and kindly taken them to your heart too and adopted them from me.
I THOUGHT AS WE BEGIN THIS YEAR 2021 IN RATHER UNCERTAIN TIMES I THOUGHT IT MIGHT BE NICE TO LOOK BACK ON HAPPIER OLD BEAR YEARS & SHARE SOME OF THE OLD BEARS AND ANIMALS HAPPY PHOTOGRAPHS FROM THE PAST 11 YEARS IN OUR ONCE UPON A TIME BEARS CHAPTERS TO HELP ADD A LITTLE SMILE & A DOSE OF SPECIAL CARING LOVE THAT OUR OLD BEARS ALWAYS GIVE US WHENEVER WE NEED IT!
