Hunt Valley Teddy Show and available pieces

The Hunt Valley Holiday Teddy Bear Show is over for another year.  My first show in two years - what a joy - my creative energy has been lifted beyond words.  A big thank you to Janet Wilson (for her encouragment and help) and to her wonderful family and the show promoters - Mark and Susan Mckay and Wendy Collins - for all your help - could not have participated without you - truly appreciated.  I want to thank all the folks who adopted my pieces and to  those who shared some of your time with me - also would like to  send prayers for all the folks who could not come to the show because of health issues and East Coast Storm related problems.   There are two available pieces that did not find homes at the show.  One is a maltese pup and the other is a Wee Witter in light rusty gold mohair.  will post pictures and descriptions on my sale blog later today.  Thanks for visiting.......wishing you all the best!!!

A Holiday Teddy Bear Show

Christmas Holiday Teddy Bear Show and Sale - November 10, 2012 - Hunt Valley, Maryland.......not participating in a bear show for more than two years has me really missing all the activity. Signed up for this show two years in a row and just could not make it for health issues.....well, with the encouragement of a dear friend, Janet and my hubby (and others)- I am doing my best to make some pieces for this show - I will be there with a smile on my face - joy in my heart - and wonderful expectations of seeing old and new friends. Something happy and exciting to look forward to......hope to see you there too!  For more information about the show visit:  www.teddybearsonvacation.com.

New little mohair pup..........




Another little 4-1/2" mohair pup. He is five times jointed - and very poseable. (Hand blown glass eyes, ultrasuede ears and paw pads - poly and pellet filled) - One of these little pups takes me about a week to complete - each is finished as an individual - no two are alike. If you would like to know when a new one is completed (or a bear or other animal) - please let me know. I enjoy sharing pictures of the completed pieces here and on facebook - sometimes they have already found new homes. I no longer participate in shows and am concentrating on the joy of creating on a whim. Wishing you all the best.......thanks for visiting........(this little pup has already found a new home).

A new little furry buddy has joined our family.




We are delighted with our new little furry buddy. He is a beautiful and healthy blonde Yorkshire Terrier. I was thrilled to visit Chandler Run of Waynesboro in person, his first home and meet his delightful breeder, Cindy Chandler Lucas, and see her beautiful selection of Yorkies. It was love at first sight.......... The website is: www.yorkievalley.com .

Old English Sheepdog

Growing up my friend Sandy had a very friendly Old English Sheepdog. Being allergic to dogs, such a furry one was out of the question for me, but I have always thought they were beautiful dogs. This is my interpretation of an Old English Sheepdog, This guy stands 6" from floor to top of head and is made of hand dyed mohair..... have a wonderful day!!

The Little Dog Walker

This a picture of the Little Dog Walker with some of the small scale soft sculpture dogs that I enjoy making. All of these little dogs have found new homes - I am working on more. The finishing touch of making these little dogs and bears and other animals is when they are adopted and on their way to new homes. If you see anything that you might like to adopt or would like to join my email list for notification when new pieces are completed, please do not hesitate to email me. teddybearswexp@aol.com - I am also on facebook. Thank you for visiting and wishing you a wonderful day!! MaryAnn Wills
