Take Us Out to the Ballgame

Monday, July 25th, 2011

Quick, fill in the missing word: “As American as Mom, apple pie, and…” “…Baseball!” It’s the height of summer, and, as of writing this post, the Red Sox are on top of the American League East with the Yankees trailing behind by just two games (both teams very popular up here in Vermont, so that […]

Kickin’ It Old School with Bowtie Bear

Wednesday, July 20th, 2011

Sure, we have Bears for every mood & occasion (think “fun on the beach“), but sometimes there’s nothing as elegant and timeless as a Bear. With a bowtie. For example, there’s 15″ Classic Teddy Bear, an adorable fellow who’s definitely comfortable in his own skin, equally at ease whether it’s a dress-up dinner or a […]

Monday, July 18th, 2011

Nobody knows warm fuzzies like Vermont Teddy Bear. Our Teddy Bears are delightfully warm and fuzzy all over (especially our huggably-soft Snow, Maple, and Espresso fur Bears in 15″, 22″, 36″ sizes), and nothing beats the warm and fuzzy feeling you get once your loved one has received his or her new Vermont Teddy Bear.

With her stylish sunhat in a variegated turquoise and lemon chiffon pattern, coordinated turquoise one-piece swim suit, and fashionable pointed shades, she’s both a beach beauty […]

Birthday Girls (and the People Who Love Them)

Wednesday, July 6th, 2011

It happens when you’re least prepared: while you’re texting a friend, while you’re eating lunch, even while you’re sleeping. Somewhere out there, some celebrity is…having a birthday. So which lucky birthday girls should be having huge parties this week? How about… Missy ‘Misdemeanor’ Elliott, does-it-all hip-hop and R&B rapper, singer, songwriter, producer, and label exec […]

Happy Birthday USA!

Tuesday, July 5th, 2011

Photo by Kirstin LaMonde The United States of America turned 235 yesterday (but doesn’t look a day over 129). Here in Vermont, we take part in many different ways of celebrating Independence Day, celebrating “lowercase i” independence, and just plain celebrating being here in the beautiful Green Mountain State.
