Fenton Canada Bears

These are some mini bears we had made in 2010 for all of our Canadian friends. 🙂 They are Fenton’s 5251 mold, about 2 3/4 inches tall. Factory painted.  Only 29 of these were made. They are light brown with a Canadian Maple Leaf painted on their head. “Exclusively for Collectors’ Showcase” is on the bottom of each one. Really cute!

These bears are now available on our web site.

New Kelsey Murphy pieces!

We got a few one of a kind Kelsey Murphy pieces in over the weekend. Mostly sand carved Fenton animals, and one 5 color paperweight blown by Ron Hinkle. All beautiful!
I made a photo album of all the pieces over on our Facebook page. It is a public page, so you don’t need to be signed up on Facebook to see it. 🙂
If you ARE on Facebook, however, you can become a fan of the page and receive updates in your news feed. 🙂 Also, you can find me at, and add me as a friend. Just add a note to let me know where I “know” you from. (i.e. Fenton collector, glass lover, etc.)
Here are a few pictures of the new pieces to whet your appetite.
Have a great week!

Well, I feel like I missed Spring this year. April and May are gone, along with the first week of June already! Yikes!
Father’s Day is just 2 weeks away, on the 21st. So here is our Collectors’ Showcase exclusive Father’s Day bear set, limited to 150 sets.
There is a Daddy bear and a baby bear, all dressed up for a day of golf! Baby bear’s hat reads, “T-TIME”, and is holding a card that reads, “TO DAD”, and a golf club. Dad’s hat reads, “#1 DAD”. Perfect gift for the Father or golfer in your life! 🙂
From now until Father’s Day, we are offering free shipping anywhere in the United States on these!!
Have a wonderful week!

Happy Memorial Day!

Memorial Day Soldier Bears

Memorial Day Soldier Bears

I am sorry to get this Memorial Day post out a little late! My Mom ended up back in the hospital this week with a MRSA infection in her hip. 😦 The doctor originally thought it was in the bone, and that they would have to go in and cut the whole hip out and RE-replace it. That was a nightmare!
Thank goodness, after taking her in for surgery to clean it up and check things out in there, they found out it had not gotten into the bone! Thank you so much to all our friends who sent their thoughts, love, and prayers our way! 🙂
So she still needs to be on IV antibiotics for a few weeks, but this was much better news!!
Anyway, back to Memorial Day……Check out this website that details all the etiquette surrounding flying an American flag.
My family has been studying our Founding Fathers and the early history of our amazing country, and a dear friend of mine sent me this link. This weekend, let’s all remember all the sacrifices that have been made to make and keep us a free nation, and try to remember to appreciate them and live in a way to honor that all year long!
Have a safe weekend, everyone!

Mother’s Day

Mother's Day Bears

Mother's Day Bears

Being in the hospital with my own Mother, then taking care of her at home, Mother’s Day kind of snuck up on me this year!
I wanted to share our Fenton Mother’s Day bear set with you. There were only 100 of these made, exclusively for Collectors’ Showcase. The set includes a Mama and a Baby bear. The baby is holding a card that reads, “To Mom”. These are the perfect gift to show your Mom how much she means to you, and to remind her of your times together. 🙂
I hope you all have a wonderful week, and be sure to tell your Mothers how much you love them! I know mine means the world to me!

New Kelsey Murphy Fenton Pieces In!

I wish I could post all the pictures of the new things, as they are so gorgeous! Here are a few to give you an example.

All of these pieces are much more beautiful in person, and the alley cats in particular are very hard to capture in photographs. If you are interested in more pictures, just let me know!

Just 2 1/2 more weeks until Easter. 🙂 I’ve already showed you our adorable little bunny, so today I thought I’d share our Easter bunny BEARS!

This set is so adorable! There is a mama and baby bear. The mama has bunny ears, whiskers, and tail, and is carrying a basket full of eggs. The baby has a flower on its head, and Easter eggs hiding in the grass beside it. Both are opal satin with a light lavender spray.
These were made in 2004, and only 100 sets were made.
All of our Fenton exclusives are Fenton factory decorated.
If you are interested in taking a set of these sweet Fenton bears home for Easter, click here.
