Many of you may remember this post about Bo Bo the Bear , by alwaysinmyroom.

It touched my heart and funny bone, then inspired me to create something for alwaysinmyroom. Also because she is an incredible human being. Grin

An artist trading block: Bear Repair Shop

The little beaten up bear charm on the back of the sign is one I found one day while walking. That happened while I was making this block, instantly knew he had to be added to the piece. Smiley

The wooden spool feet are from my Grandmother's sewing box. The coin is from Japan and the rest of the items were from my stash. Except the bears which were found them online. The "Fur-st Aid" heart is from shrink plastic.

Thanks for looking. Smiley

Thank you for your kind and thoughtful ATB!  I was so surprised!  I know my brother is going to try to steal it from me, so I will keep an eye on him...

I just love how you put so much detail into this piece...the Fur-st Aid, the broken little bear on back, and the HAND sewing needle and thread...all of those things mean something to me...

I love it and will cherish it always!

Plus, amazing how you have taken to ATB's...your vintage was is a different style and yet both are so creative and fun!
