Old Soul Spa !



Hi Mom! (Deborah of BH.bears) Just a quick note to let you know that I really like this place : ). I am very relaxed and content. I even have my own room ! The lady here thinks her dog is a bit jealous of all the attention I am getting. She had to give the dog lots of pats on the head too.


After two surface baths I think I look pretty good (still not done though ~ I am told).


She took a close-up picture of may face before my bath . . . . (how embarrassing).



This is me on my first day at the Old Soul Spa. I wasn't too thrilled about the "before" pictures, but I reluctantly agreed. I hope she fixes my paw soon. Bye for now ! hugs xoxoxo

OMG!!!! Karen is that my bear? I don't believe it, he looks like a different teddy all together. I knew he was a mess but I never realized he was that bad until you see him clean. He looks so wonderful I never dreamed he would be so handsome. I'm extremely pleased with the results, you have done an amazing job. Hope you kept track at how many cotton swaps you used we can call him the million swab bear :) I'm so happy you agreed to take him on and I'm sure he is to. Thank you Thank you Thank you Hugs Deb

Hello Karen: I just have to write and say what a wonderful site yours is. It is so beautifully put together, in every way, and the bears and their transformations are pure heaven. You're such a huge talent and long may you be the guardian angel for grubbly little teddies. I also have bears (though you wouldn't know it from my site, which is all about finance) and my best loved and oldest bear was cleaned here in the UK a good few years ago. But I think they were a little heavy handed with him, he is golden again but I didn't feel he had been loved as well as cleaned. You clearly are full of love for the bears. You were the blog of the day today, so thank you, Karen, for starting my day so happily. Love and hugs from London.

Thanks so much Kate! I know that the owners adore their bears and it really is an honour to be trusted with their care. Thank you for your comments on my Teddy Bear Blog. ~ Karen
