Today must be July 10 as the new PFATT came out last night. (That would be Primitive Folk Art Trinkets and Treasures Marketplace for those of you who are initial challenged like I am. What is lol anyway?) But I digress. I just sat and enjoyed the many artist's listings while drinking my morning coffee. All of the artists are spectacular. My personal friends are Robin Seeber of Outside the Box; Nancy Malay; Folk Art Originals and Pam Gracia of Soft in the Head- don't you love that title? I do not know Wendy Meagher of Whendi's bears but I love her work and I think that you will, too. I have 2 patriotic bears listed as mentioned before and pictured in this blog somewhere. I think the little one is cute and so old looking. I, greatly, distressed him and stuffed him the old fashioned way with excelsior. What do you think? Thanks for stopping by.

I've designed many bears over the years, but my favorites are still USS TEDDY and his First Mate. They will always remind me of my early years traveling to the many ports that the US Navy sent my parents and me. My Dad and Mother are now both buried in Arlington National Cemetery where they will forever be a reminder of their patriotism to out country. Today, I would like to share with you part of an email that I received from one of my best friends from high school. (Norview High School, Class of 1956) Helen Heath Allsbrook writes: "Isn't it wonderful that we have the privilege of living in America where we can enjoy all the blessings living in freedom brings to us. Happy Independence Day. Have a happy and safe July 4th. Gob Bless America. Thanks to our troops, past and present and their families." Helen's words reflect my feelings, as well.

I was going to title this posting as, "Is anyone out there?" I was reluctant to start a blog as I couldn't imagine anyone being interested in what I have to say. I started it anyway and got a few followers but very few responses. I decided to keep the blog going for myself and should I pick up a few interested readers, so much the better. As we prepare for the 4th of July weekend, I am completing 2 mohair patriotic primitive bears. They will be listed for sale on PFATT on July 10. They even come with their own drums. I hope that you like them.
