I have always had a soft spot for plush. When I was a kid, I had hoards of them. I collected anything and everything with a cute face and a fuzzy, huggable body. Don't even get me started on the Beany Baby craze... Or the time I threw a tantrum at the Vermont Teddy Bear Factory when I wanted a bear. As an adult I still own probably more plush than I should. Even so, I have managed to narrow my collection down to my favorite childhood friends and a gaggle of artists' plush. (Though, I do still occasionally get swayed by conventional softies.) I couldn't possibly cover my whole collection in one blog post, so I'm going to share with you the plush that reside in my studio. It's a nice mix of nostalgia and inspiration.
