Meet 2013's trendiest animal: the bearAlison Faulkner
Remember the “Put a bird on it” skit from Portlandia? Well it looks like the grizzly, the panda and even Mr. Polar, have decided to gobble up tweety and declare themselves 2013’s new “it” animal. As I decorated my son’s nursery I realized I had put about 5 bears in it…and it was totally unintentional.
It looks like bears are the go-to animal for artists creating prints, designing home decor, and decorating baked goods.
Don’t believe me? Start paying attention. I swear it’s true. Want to be BEARY on trend (I HAD TO…) here some adorable and SAFE ways to bring a bear into your life.
Love and Donuts,
