My little Holly (original name Tootles) arrived today. Of all my Charlie Bears, she is the one with the biggest gap between when I wanted and ordered her, versus when I actually got to hold her.
I saw her early this year –February I think? and placed the order as soon as I could. I planned to cancel it if non-stock photos dissuaded me. Her stock photo just looked too good to be true. Then one video was released and that looked too good to be true, too. After months of waiting I just thought I had to be let down somewhat, somehow… but, no.
She’s stunning! The photos speak for themselves. Everything about her –her posing, facial expression, different types of fur, and generous size –everything about her is 110% perfect.
In the end, I settled for Holly as a name because it’s prickly and Christmasy. It seemed appropriate for my little Yule hedgie. 😊
At this point… Believe it or not, I’m considering putting my Charlie Bear purchasing sites in my “permanently blocked” website list. 😅 This was my second most wanted bear of the year. Now she’s mine. Eventually I do have to stop buying bears and I think if I remove the temptation it will be easy enough. Plus, HOPEFULLY next year I can enjoy my bears rather than just buy new ones. The pandemic has been a huge factor in my bear splurges.
Anyway! It’s time to finish my daily chores. I’ll post a photo of her outfit tomorrow!
