Little Breena, my Fairy Bear, won 2nd Place in the TBAAF Contest!

I was thrilled to learn that my fairy bear, Breena, won second place in the Fantasy Category of the Teddy Bear Artists and Friends Online Contest!   I know I shamelessly asked for those on my list to cast a vote and I am so grateful to those of you who voted for little Breena!  A BIG THANK YOU!!!  xoxo

Honored to be a part of Nicky Portsmouth's (Treacle Bears) new room!

Nicky redid her room and her newest little Booh Bear has a very special place there!   Thank you, Nicky, for sharing this photo!  xoxo

Bird of Paradise!

I was outside tonight taking pictures of the skyline and my Bird of Paradise looked so pretty,  I thought I would snap a shot of it, too!   Mom so loved flowers and her garden was always tended - she often sent me pictures of her tulips and roses and iris - what a joy it was each Spring to receive a special envelope full of flower photos from Mom!  This one is for you, Mom!

My Sister and I hung our Mom's 9/11 Quilt this past week

My Sister, Patty, and I hung our Mom's 9/11 Quilt at the Livonia, Michigan Public Library/Civic Center

My cousin, Carol, approached the administrator at the Livonia Public Library/Civic Center about displaying my Mom's 9/11 Quilt in honor of those whose lives were touched by the tragedy 10 years ago.  They welcomed the idea, so we flew back to Michigan last week to hang the Quilt.  It will be displayed for the entire month of September.  It is such an honor to be able to share Mom's quilt with the people of Michigan. It's hard to believe it has been 10 years.   God Bless our Beautiful America. xoxo
