  1. LOL I love this. Mavis is the most social. My dad was also into gifting my mom the Vermont teddy bears. I remember when he first found out about them, he was so proud. He couldn’t wait for my mom to get it. LOL on the covers. My husband basically mummies too… and one time, I poked him to ask if I could have some covers and his alter sleep ego said, “No. It will toughen you up.”


    1. Mavis is definitely the most social. We both much prefer the company of each other to the rest of the world and can be such homebodies!

      How sweet that your dad would gift them to your mom! He started it when we were dating and we both just love them! I have seasonal ones for autumn and winter, so now I just need to find some cute spring and summer ones!

      Hahaha. “It will toughen you up.” Definitely why I keep an extra blanket on my side of the bed!
