another steal from facebook

Setting out for the KC Teddy Bear Jubilee

Boxes are packed with bears ... the car is loaded... I am heading out to the KCI Expo Center  ( out near Kansas City's airport on Ambassador Dr) to set up my table. Bob's not going today.... he's babysitting the grandkids since our daughter is helping out at her high school's homecoming and our son-in-law will be at work! But he'll be there tomorrow!
Hope to see some of you there too!

how about a spider?

Spidey has eight pipe cleaner filled legs just right for posing and an elastic if  one should choose to let him hang instead of sit on his box! Spidey's head is about 2.5 inches in diameter. His large off set glass eyes are from England.... and his fangs are perle cotton ( Bob insisted that he HAD to have them!).
By the way his black mohair is hand dyed vintage upholstery mohair.... very dense but with a little wear and tear from over the years.
I am taking Spidey to the Kansas City Teddy Bear Jubilee this weekend... out at the KCI  Expo Center.

Teddy tag

This tag was sent to me in a gif file... the eyes opened and closed but I can't figure out how to import it in that format. So I made a copy as a jpeg.  Sandie... the tag is great!

Packing up for a show

I have been packing up bears and bear friends for a short trip up to Omaha, NE. this Sunday.  Elaine's Dolls is sponsoring a doll, bear and toy show in the Fireman's Union Hall, 6005 Grover St., Omaha. The show is 9 am to 3 pm and the Union Hall is just a few blocks North of I-80... really easy to find.
Do hope to see some of my fellow bear people.. do say "hello"!

Halloween's invading me!

This is "Spooky"... when I purchased a bunch of mohair scraps on eBay there was a little piece of tie dyed lo-o-ng mohair done in oranges and yellow.  Too small for a bigger bear!  "Spooky" is the result...and with those colors, Halloween came to mind.  Poking through my Halloween accessories I came across a vintage candy container, some polymer resin Halloween candy, a Halloween bracelet ( Spooky's turned it into a necklace) with a ghost charm and a a black cat done in matboard. I'll be posting him on BearPle and in my stsy shop shortly!
ps. He is 5 inches tall!
Spooky has found a new home in Texas with some other Glass Dragon Bears!

Mishka the Mouse

I just posted Mishka on BearPile.... he's a little 5.25 inch tall anime style mouse... with horsetail whiskers and a cute little tail!!

I have just about finished the Christmas Treasures bears and friends. Some need a few more accessories and one isn't completed!  But I hink I'm doing ok in getting prepared for the online show ( November 16 -18th).

It's currently raining with some thunder rumbles. The temperature has dropped.... no way will you hear any complaints here for A LONG time !  My DH is even thinking he may have to mow tomorrow... it's been almost 3 months since the last time!

Rain Rain glorious rain!

I know Hurricane Isaac did havoc to Louisiana and Mississippi... but at the the end it went North andWest and delivered 6 plus inches of  much needed rain to our area... Hooray!! Everything looks a little better already. Here's hoping all those trees and shrubs with brown leaves will be able to come back next Spring!
