~PASSIONS FROM THE PAST~


Someone reminded me of these today. They are tucked away in the bottom of one of my curio cabinets..but..it she brought back memories. I really cannot remember why I got so into collecting these tiny bears, but they appealed to me at the time..and several times I have thought of selling them..but never do. I imagine one day they will end up in a shop like "Rusty Cuboard" and her mother run and someone will walk by and smile and say.."oh, remember those?" and wonder why they were all the rage. I still think they are adorable..and I am still loving Beatrix Potter figurines and stuffed characters like Peter Rabbit, and especially the frog, Jeremy Fisher..but they are bagged at the moment and stored away.
Anyway...just remembering things I collected long ago...and sometimes far away.
I am off to bed. Shopping at the Mission Inn Antique Malls tomorrow.. :) OH JOY!!

Thank you so much for mentioning me on your blog. I probably have about 20 retired homco bears collected so far. I love them.

I´ve never collected bears or anything else than some stamps when I was young. But I do have my first teddybear still :-)

Mona, I appreciate all of your comments. It feels like I have known you for a long time.
It has taken me awhile to get back to everyone. I still have a ways to go on recovering.
My doctor told me it will be a total of 6 months before I am completely healed. That is scary to me.
But I have to put my trust in the Lord to take care of me.
Sending you love, Nita
