Rennigers and Tampa Bear Show

Went to Rennigers Antique Extravaganza on Friday and saw this:

Wanted to take this trellis with the bears on top home but could barely get my bum up the hill to my car! Had to settle for some great buttons hehe.

Do today I picked up some bear artists friends and we drive to Tampa for the bear show tomorrow at the Crowne Plaza
Westshore hotel on west Kennedy Blvd.

The show starts at 9:30am and ends at 3pm. I will let you know what you missed! U less of course you come by to say hi!

IDEX Review 2012

Well it's the Monday after IDEX and time to let yo see some of the sights!

This my Ooak, Little Reds Costume Party, based on an old Victorian children's book.

Must have been a theme! This is Beware by Nancy Latham of Wistful Children.

This is See No Evil, Speak No Evil, Hear No Evil from Friedericy Dolls. And this was just one of the wonderful pieces.

Bells and Beaux showed several different collections like this one on Seminole Indian Dolls And Clothing,

The artwork is amazing. They also had a Halloween and Santa presentation.

Some of the bear artist at the show:

Irene Heckel

Bev White, two time TOBY 2012 Industry Choice Winner.
