I am a fan of supporting local organizations and small businesses and a few weeks ago I discovered a wonderful one in Wethersfield, CT. Diane Ohanian turns fur coats into incredible teddy bears, bunnies, and sheep.

One of my friend’s grandma died and in going through her things they found a fur coat. None of them were going to use it, so they had it turned into a couple of stuffed teddy bears. How many bears you get depend on the size of the coat and the size of the bears. Now a number of people from the family can share in a piece of their grandmother’s items.

I thought it was as great idea and when I saw the bears, I was really impressed. Diane Ohanian is a very talented craftsman. If you’re interested click on Bearables to go to her site.

Thank you for giving your time to stop and read my blog. I hope it encourages you to keep moving. Move and the body will be happier. And when you're moving you can hike, run, swim in Jell-O, race over non-Newtonian fluids, travel the world or build igloos--if that's your thing. If not, you can watch me do it. This is just a spot to try and feel good about life.
