Holidays!! Yay!!!!

Let the festivities begin! I am so thrilled to have both my grown up kids with us this year. I hope everyone will enjoy this time when we slow down and reflect on what makes life worth while. I must share this photo of my darlings that I found and you can tell just how old it is by the Ewok in the photo. Now let's see - how long ago was that movie?? We can always date things by where we were living at the time. This photo was made in our quarters at Fort Devens, Massachusetts. We left soon after that for Okinawa. Our lives during Travis' army career were certainly colorful and seemed like a travelog!

Three Little Bears

Xian LuWu

I've just listed three little bears in my Etsy shop! In addition to the open mouthed Polar Bear (who has been named Travis ((after the insistence of my husband of the same name)) and who was featured in the last posting, I offer tiny Xian LuWu pictured above. He's named for the newly named baby panda at the San Diego Zoo. The name means "Little Gift." The third bear is Little Santa dressed all in green. I do hope you'll stop by and see more photos of the three!

Please click: www.etsy.com/shop/Donnaandthebears   I certainly appreciate your comments and
messages.  All three of these bears have been adopted!! Thank you Sue, Lynn, and Debra!!

A Little Something New

This tiny Polar Bear - as yet unnamed - is my first bear with an open mouth! He stands under 4 inches tall and is fully cotter pin jointed. I hope you think he is sweet and smiley and kind. I crocheted his little hat and found the perfect matching green bell.

And now for a schedule change. Because of family activities - we're all fine, just a lot of moving and other things we've been doing - I won't be able to go to the Hunt Valley Show or participate in the wonderful online show coming up soon. That last one is my fault as I missed the deadline for applying! Where does the time go???

Anyway, this little chap as well as some others will make an appearance soon in my Etsy shop. I am so sorry that I won't be able to see everyone at the show this coming weekend. Please drop me a line and let me know how much fun you have and tell me of the new bears in your collections!! I'd love to see photos too!

I'll be letting you know when my bears will be in the Etsy shop and do hope you'll be able to drop by.
