Both of these items were previous thrift shop finds. I picked up the sweater vest as an ugly Christmas sweater. The bear is marked as Manufactured for Hallmark. I found her underneath a Christmas tree at an antique shop in Jackson, California. She looks loved and worn and has a weight and heft to her that makes her totally huggable!
What I am listening to Home for the Holidays, loving the tune "Christmas in Jail" by Prairie Oyster.
