One time i spent my entire budget at the bear show in Philadelphia on a Sharon Barron bear.....and he was well worth it! (i know i've posted this pic before....)
I understand completely: when I saw her bears in London at the Hugglets show, I just couldn't resist them either.
Peter & EJ ~ Golly gosh you both have such stunning bears! I do hope you have shared your bear pics on Pinterest as well. That is a great place to view and cataloge wonderful bear specimens~~ Debbie 5
You are right Debbie, I do have a Pinintrest account and several "teddy bear" boards, but I keep forgetting to post my pictures there. I'll try better in future.
So excited I had to share! My Mickey the Murphy Bear arrived today and I made him sit still for a couple of photos. First one is right after opening his travel box and letting him get a couple of gasps of air before heading to the bear cave. Next one is feeling right at home in bear cave. He has lots of friends and a can of marbles to keep him company ~ Debbie 5
Thanks so much EJ & Peter! I have actually thinned my collection of duplicates of my fav artists in order to be able to acquire a few more bears of artists I don't have. I would love a Desert Mountain Bear and also would love a Gregory Gyllenship Bear! In the meantime, here are a few others Debbie 5
My very first artist bear Ling Ling by Rachel Radman
Geb Ebberly a Barricane Bear & friend Hannah
Gunner & chicken friend Rory both by Deb Beardsley Elertson
Thank you for sharing! Your collection is filled with personality and soul and is a wonderful source of a bear education for any aspiring bear collector. I love the Rose repair on the foot of your bear Victoria Rose! Proof that some of our best creative ideas come from necessity. I'm usually more of a traditionalist but your blue & violet bears are amazing! I love all of them but the Kate Berlin and Barron bears were some of my favorites.
