A Few Minis From the Bishop Show

A group of us went to the Chicago Miniatures Show yesterday and had a really good time!  I brought home just a few little things, but I am really happy with what I found :o)  Of course there are a few things that I wish I would have gone back for, but that seems to be the way it always goes, LOL!

I was really happy to finally find the door latches that I have been wanting for the Harry Potter shops!  I have been looking everywhere for these!  I bought them from Mini-tiques, but I have to order a couple more from her because she had sold out of the other two styles I wanted.

I found this really pretty white vase and mossy clay pot at Carol's Bloomers

The large white flower pot and the little cutting boards came from Dragonfly International.  The little cutting boards are also something that I have been wanting for a while, and I couldn't pass up the flower pot.  I thought it would look great with a big fern in it.

These cute little candy dishes were a great find!  I love them!  These are from Barbara Anderson Miniatures.  She had them in an assortment of beautiful colors.

I apologize for the terrible pictures!  I am still trying to figure out my new camera and I can't seem to get the lighting right. 

I better get back to work on some bears now!  There are only about two weeks left until the Valparaiso Doll and Bear Show!

I hope you have a great day!

New Bears to Share and Blogger Problems

Hi everyone! Sorry about the length of time between posts!! There is just so much going on!
I have some bears and other stuff that I would like to share today, and also a question for anyone who might be able to help. :o)

First the bears!






These guys and gals are available on my Bear Pile page if you would like to take a look at them.  :o) 
I am now working on the bears I will be taking with me to the next show.   I will be at the Valparaiso Dolls & Friends show on September 11.  The show hours are 9 a.m. - 3 p.m.  If you would like more info or directions, just let me know. 
Now, I am wondering if anyone else out there is still having problems with blogger??  I still can't leave comments on most of the blogs I follow, I can't join new blogs and I can't even view my own list of followers!   It is just my computer though, it all works fine when I use Gregg's laptop.  Is there something I am missing here, LOL!    I have been sad about not being able post comments for people and not being able to enter all the lovely giveaways out there!  Help!
Also,  I think I have decided to combine my website and blog together, just to make things easier for myself.   I want to add the page links to the top of my blog like I have seen some of you do, but I am not sure where to start.  Can anyone point me in the right direction?  Pretty Please!  :o)  I would really appreciate any help you can give me!!
I hope you are all having a great summer! 
Take care!
