Meet a Bear Monday

Hello, everyone, it is Monday
again and time to meet another
bear...He is from Boyd's....
Since this is April, and the Civil
War started in April, I thought I
would post my Civil War Bears.
This is "Mason" and he is dressed in
a Civil War uniform, for the Union.
I think the dealers could sell them,
only after they had been out a year.
Otherwise, you had to get them at
the big barn in Gettysburg....
They had an expert on Civil
War clothing, design the outfits for
the uniforms, plus the outfits for the
Mrs, that goes along with them.  Next
week, I will show you Mrs. Mason.

On his foot it says
"Exclusive Civil War Edition"...

A close up of his face....You can't
tell it in the photos, but he is wearing
 a button up the front, muslin shirt and
he has suspenders, to hold up his pants.
His jacket is navy blue, where as the
Confederate soldier's is gray. I have
all four of them and they all sit on a
wooden bench in the living room...
I love these bears!

I hope you bear lovers out there, like
these bears, as much as I do....

Until next time~

That is on my bucket list. If I get a job after my classes...I am saving up to go!!! LOL Thanks for sharing your beautiful bears.
