I love to play...with bears!


Remember I talked about my" bear hotel "? Well, I'm ready to show you exactly what I was talking about. First, I want to introduce you to my menagerie.


                           The nerd. he is the keeper of  my camera and antique binocular  collection.
                                                          This one likes pins.
      I just got him last week. He is made of wool and he is very hard since his inside is full of sawdust.
 He is a stuffy one too. Somebody wanted him for her "dog collection". I have to informed her he is not a dog.
                           The queen. She is scruffy and sweet. I got her the longest, about 20 years.
                                                                Check out her crown.
                                                              She is quite a scholar too.

                               Now, may introduce to you my "bear hotel"? Under construction...
This are the little ones. They were all over the place and I decided to give them a more prominent spot.













                                                       The "bear hotel" , all finished.









 Everybody got their own little room. I love how it turn out and have so much fun putting it together.



 Every single pocket have a different decor. I loved it, but you know who loves it more? JUJU, he was in time out twice today. I might have to find a spot to hang it higher, unless I want some on my bears to die at Juju's arms.
 I decided to allow my bear collection to occupied the hallway by the guest room and office.
 I have one corner cabinet that I'm still working on, full of bears of course. I have more in the store and they are for display only, bears are one of the things that I have collected for years and have never gotten tire of.

Thanks for BEARing with me through the bear tour. Blessings, Marta.
