Hello Friends, I am posting this "Meet A Bear Monday"
late.....Blogger didn't show the toolbar at the top for a
new post, after checking and checking, I decided to
restart the computer to see if that would do any good
and it did, so here goes! This patriotic Santa is named
"Benjamin Santabeary" ......I haven't really been buying
bears since the middle of 2006, except for the two ornies
I bought in Oregon in October. I probably have about
200 in my collection, I don't know how many I have, plus
I have a couple tubs of them in Texas, that were my Mom's.
I asked DH if he would help me do inventory one of these
days...I am sure it will take a long time! I think I will do
the Christmas ones before I pack them up....On to the
These are Edmond & Bailey.....
They are named after the Head Bean's (owner)
daughter, and her beau.....Boyd's comes out with
a new line every 6 months...Winter/Summer, and
they always have an Edmund & Bailey, dressed in
a new outfit.....Bailey's little brother only comes
in the Winter line, I think....Here they are standing
by the tree with that little elf in the carriage that I
accidentally broke a wheel on.... So, now I have a
broken baby coach wheel.. :( I put the elf back on
the tree and I think he was in the post with the
big picture of the tree....I forgot to post that I
won this bowl of gingers from Sandy at
She even put in another set of gingers and 3 bags
of tarts, that I forgot to put in the picture....She
sure does good work, I bought a doll from her
for my MIL and she loved it. Thanks again,
Sandy and I'm sorry I posted this so late, I
got caught up in my give away! I love them!
They are sitting on my old crock bench in the
kitchen, next to my little tree that I have child's
utensils and prim ornies on....I will post a couple
pictures of that later....
I made more peanut butter fudge today, potato
candy and banana bread. Tomorrow I am going
to make more chocolate fudge with walnuts, some
plain, some with pecans and cream cheese truffles....
mmmmm......I can just feel the pounds coming on!
I will be giving most of it away, like the other batches
I already made. I think I have had my share of fudge
for the year :)
I will be posting some more pictures of the ornies
and my trees in a couple days......Gee, what am I
going to post about next year??? I better get my
thinking cap on....oh, yeah.....Things I keep buying,
more bears, things to make over, shelves I want
to put up, the kitchen cabinets I want to paint.....I
think I will have something to talk about, so come
Until next time~
