A Pekingese Picnic with the Habersham Family and the New Steiff Picnic Teddy Bears

 

With the weather so gorgeous in Atlanta, we are really getting ready for a fabulous spring filled with great weather, beautiful flowers and one of our favorite pastimes: picnics. Just the thought of a picnic brings a smile to my face and wag to my tail. And since we live at the Habersham Forest, all we have to do is pack a basket filled with goodies, grab a blanket and some other fun things and find the perfect spot to get settled outside.

It’s so much fun to go with our family and friends in the forest…..sometimes we all get to go together…and if you have ever been to the forest you know that is a whole bunch of stuffed animals…lambs, bears, giraffes, mice, etc. The list goes on.

So you can imagine our excitement when we got word of the newest Steiff Picnic Collection. Looks like we will have some new friends joining our crew this spring.

The Worldwide Limited Edition 2016 Steiff Picnic Collection includes Picnic girl, Picnic Boy, Picnic Mama and Picnic Papa. They are so new and there are only 1000 of each of these bears made. So, we recommend you get these guys soon.

Here is a little big from the newest collection and our soon-to-be newest members of the Habersham Forest Family.

The Picnic Girl (of course she is my favorite)

The Picnic girl is made of the finest cream-colored Schulte mohair and is the most stylish of th021527_l__82042.1452142027.1280.1280e bunch, donning a lace collar tied with a bow. She also carries a working parasol, made out of cotton white lace that open and closes easily. I bet she would not mind sharing the umbrella over my little body if it gets too sunny. Maybe I could loan her a pair of my sassy shades.

 

The Picnic Boy comes ready to play with his very own kite. He seems ready for anything sporting a blue and white-collar in case there is a post-picnic dinner. Picnic Boy is sen from gold-colored Schulte Mohair and is the friendliest bear of the bunch. At least that is what I am hearing from people outside of the Forest.

 

 

 

 

 

 

I can’t wait to meet our new friends from Steiff and take them on a Habersham Picnic!

When Papa Picnic is out and about he is always with a bottle of red wine. Couple that with a Provincial picnic spread including a baguette and some cheese, he loves to feel that he is surrounded by the lavender scented summer breeze from his favorite landscape in Provence.

And last but not least, is Picnic Mama Teddy Bear She loves to enjoy fruit in the countryside. In her basket she carries a half melon, strawberry and a pear (all made of wood). Mother Bear is wearing  a plaid shawl, with red-laced edging. Her hand embroidered nose in pale pink, makes a nice contrast to the fine-vanilla-colored mohair. 021480_l__25167.1452142024.1280.1280

My first post!

I am so excited to welcome you to my blog!  I have so much love to share and stories to tell.  I will start with some exciting 20151019-03news about ME!  Hard at work in the Habersham Forest Style Studio, the workers created my very own Steiff animal. Now, there are 600, limited edition Steiff Pekingese dogs  named Sassafrass Jones.  A dream come true!  Oh, and I even have my very own set of Sassafrass Jones Chartreuse glasses (and an extra pink pair for a little variety).

I promise I won’t make every blog about me, but this is a very special occasion. I am a Steiff animal. From an abandoned dog with glasses to a Steiff!  Amazing!

There are only 600 of this “mini-me” available so you may want to get your hands on me. Click here to buy this special Steiff.

But there is more, I even have a suitcase that is the perfect fit for my perky self and you can get all sorts of accessories to dress me up and make me even more fabulous. Personally, my favorite is the suitcase where I am wearing my cape and crown.  But the ones with the hats, made by Madeline the Milliner Mouse is irresistable as well. 20151108-1420151108-02
