This was a great weekend in San Diego!  It is always good to see everyone and get out of the winter blahs – and there were certainly no blahs at this show!  The class on Friday was fun – we thank Art Rogers for being such a great teacher.  All of the students finished in time to put their class creations in a Saturday contest.  Congrats to Wanda Shope for her return to the Teddy Bear world and for winning the contest (sorry Wanda – my picture of your Kit the Kat was terrible).  We also congratulate Stevie T for winning two Industry Choice TOBY awards announced at the Saturday evening banquet.

I was glad to have extra help at the show (Thanks to Adeline, Jean and Maryll) so that I could take pictures and boy did I!  As usual for this show, there was a wonderful selection of original work by prominent artists, fabulous antiques, great vintage, an more miniatures than I have seen in a while.

Enjoy the pictures, I will post more on Facebook soon and many of the dolls, teddy bears and critters will be listed on the Doll Sale Marketplace during the week.
