Gingerbread Boy & Girl Plus Magnets! (2008)

December 18, 2010

Here I have the whole Gingerbread Bearista family! There is the boy Gingerbear (78th edition of the Bearista series) and the girl Gingerbear (79th edition of the Bearista series) and they are together with the small magnet boy and girl bearistas. The boys have red buttons and green ties with the gingerbread suit and the girls have orange ribbons with green buttons and the girl gingerbread suits. As you probably know, gingerbread is a traditional holiday treat and these bears are certainly a treat as well! I am fairly certain that the Gingerbread series only came out in Asia. I got my bears from eBay. I am not 100% certain about that though. At any rate, they are charming and beautiful! Click the photos to enlarge. πŸ™‚

Bearista Fireplace Decorations

December 13, 2010

We have this thing on our fireplace that I got from Pottery Barn. So many people have this wall accessory that it is kind of embarrassing, but I still like it anyway. It is fun to change up the decorations for it during the different seasons. So, I decided my winter/holiday Bearista magnets would make perfect decorations for this! I put some red yarn in the bottom of the glasses with the bears. In the other glasses I put tissue Christmas paper, little balls of yarn and some gold ornament balls that we had. Then I made some little poofy yarn things to add to a few of the holders. I wanted to keep it kind of random. It looks pretty cute in person. It might be kind of hard to tell how cute it is from the photos. I am including one close up, so you can see the detail better. Click the photos to enlarge. πŸ™‚

Bearista Tree 2010 Final Update (Probably)

December 13, 2010

Well, I think this is probably the final update for the Bearista tree. I found some more bears to put on and I found some little red ornaments and I added ribbon and put them on the tree too! I’m pretty sure I won’t be adding anything more. I think the little red ornaments look pretty good though. I’m glad I went to the trouble of adding them. I’m not too sure they are very visible in the small photo though. Click the photo to enlarge. πŸ™‚

Plaid Santa Bearista Boy & Girl (2009)

December 10, 2010

Last year Starbucks really outdid themselves with this cute couple. Here are the plaid Santa boy and girl Bearistas. The boy is the 86th edition and the girl is the 87th edition of the Bearista series. The boy has plaid pants, a red santa coat, a big santa buckle belt and santa hat while the girl is dressed up in a satin red dress with a plaid santa coat and a red cap with a poinsetta flower attached. They both have the Bearista patch on their feet and their coats are almost military-esque with a hint of gold. The girl has eyelashes and rosy cheeks too! Click the photos to enlarge. πŸ™‚

Bearista Tree 2010 Update

December 9, 2010

We decided to add some snowflakes, a tree skirt and the angel to the top of the Bearista Christmas tree. I think it looks just great! Yay! Click the photo to enlarge. It looks better bigger! πŸ™‚

Big Christmas Bear (2004)

December 9, 2010

This is the 38th edition of the Bearista seriesβ€”a big, beautiful, fluffy Christmas bear wearing a dark, velvet red and white santa hat with holly and a dark, velvet red and white scarf with holly. This bear’s fur is really soft and cuddly, and he has a super cute face too! I wish the internet had feel-a-vision, because this bear is just so nice and soft to touch!

Rudolph Bearista (2003)

December 5, 2010

2003 was a great year for Rudolph! Starbucks came out with the Rudolph small bearista and also a larger one. He has a nice red nose, a red scarf, and of course antlers. He has a Rudolph patch on his foot and on his other foot is the Starbucks Bearista year indicator medal. This is the 28th edition in the Bearista series. He also has a fluffy reindeer tail in the back and fluffy reindeer ears. Click the photos to enlarge. πŸ™‚

Holiday Snowman + Snow Puppy (2006)

December 5, 2010

These cute critters were part of the Holiday 2006 line. The snowman is all decked out with a fine winter cap and scarf and he is holding onto the snow puppy with his stick arms and a red leash. The snow puppy is detachable, but can be reattached by sticking him onto the snowman where there is velcro. Great for holiday decorating scenes and cute as can be! Click the photos to enlarge. πŸ™‚
