Blog Post Template This carved wood bear has been in our family for many years and needed a refresh; add a little stain, baby oil, paint, imagination then finish with a good sealer and you’ve got a fun welcome bear and fish to greet your guest at the front door. When I asked my granddaughter, Eva, what she would name bear and fish, her response was priceless. “I would name them Good Bear and Good Fish!” and therein you have it, folks!
