I am leaving Tampa today and it will be a long drive home. Valerie had organized an exciting event, her 600th show. Congratulations Valerie! I got to meet old friends and collectors and made new friends and met new collectors. We had a great time and I will definitely come back next year. But now it is time to get packed and to get on my way home where my dog Raven is waiting for me! She is also a bear collector and is showing 2 of her bears in the photos. You will hardly ever see her without carrying one around.

  1. Schön das Du eine tolle Zeit in Tampa hattest und es dort so gut für Dich gelaufen ist!
    Ich hoffe Dein Raven trägt nur seine eigenen Bärchen spazieren und verschont Deine;-)

  2. Good to see you had a wonderful time Marion. Live shows are great! Love the photos, fancy Raven being a collector, whoever would have thought he would become so attached to teddy bears. LOL!!
    Warmest Hugs,

  3. Hallo Gabriele, bin nach unendlich langer Fahrt wieder in North Carolina eingetroffen. Raven hat sich so gefreut! Sie spielt uebrigens nur mit ihren eigenen Baeren die sie ueberall rumtraegt und nicht kaputt macht. An meine geht sie nicht dran, obwohl einige in Reichweite sind ..... jedenfalls bis jetzt. Nur eine Nikolausfigur, die ich als Weihnachtsdekoration vor meinen Kamin gestellt hatte, hat ihren "Spieldrang" nicht ueberlebt! Liebe Gruesse an Dich von Marion!

  4. Hi Sandi, nice to hear/read from you. Raven loves her bears. She is very careful and never destroys any, she is the perfect loving bear mommy! It must run in the family. The German Shepherd we had before her also loved her bears but her favorite was a sock monkey. Different collector taste, even in dogs! lol
    Have a wonderful day!
    Marion
