Can Spring be Far Behind??

Daffodils have begun to bloom here in southern Virginia. Yesterday I noticed that some of the pear trees have little blossoms showing as well. I'm hoping this means that the very cold weather is over and lots more little flowers will be appearing soon.

Happy Valentine's Day!

It's a gorgeous day here in Southern Virginia and feels like Spring. Travis brought home the lovely boquet last night so I began my valentine celebration early! There are lovely roses, white tulips, and another white flower of the lily family with some pretty baby's breath. I took them out on the deck to photograph them - arent' they lovely!
I received a teddy bear, porcelain mug and CHOCOLATES from dear Jason and Kim! Can't get better than that!
I wish everyone loads of love and hugs on this special day for remembering those dear!

TOBY Industry Choice Award

I am so thrilled to say that my "Panda Sisters" have won the TOBY Industry Choice award for 2009. Their names are Pansy and Rosebud. It's little Rosebud's head I'm holding in the last posting so you can get an idea of how big they are. Pansy is 3 3/4 inches tall and Rosebud is 2 3/4 inches tall. I was just sent the "official" list from Teddy Bear and Friends magazine, but dear Ruth so kindly let me know earlier today. I've been floating on air since I heard from her. I hope you like these little girls. They will be my first entry into the world of Ebay and I hope to do that by the end of the month. I want to take more photos using my daughter's hands holding them to show just how big (or small) they are. Do let me know if you'd like me to contact you when they will be available on Ebay. They are a "one of a kind" duo, but there will, of course, be more pandas available.
