Thank you to all for your interest in Pippa. I eenjoyed your likes, comments and lovely personal notes. Most importantly, thank you to all of you who bid with your heart. High bid for Pippa was $495.76 and every penny will go to the International Rett Syndrome Foundation.

Pippa is on her way to her new home, along with some fun Halloween surprises. I think Teddy Bear people are pretty incredible.


  1. Linda, I had no idea you had a blog. Where have I been? I am glad to see that sweet little Pippa raised so much for the Rett Syndrome Foundation. She's darling. I love her with the antique Steiff in this picture. I wish you lived closer to me so we could have tea and talk and make bears! xxx

  2. Thank you Debora! I was so amazed the bidding went as high as it did, but then I know Teddy Bear people have big hearts. I wish we lived closer as well. I know we would get along famously. You are one of the sweetest people on Facebook. I think it would be great fun to have a "retreat" once a year for select artists to gather together for a weekend to make bears, share ideas, laugh and enjoy the physical presence of each other! I think I will work on that idea... Hugs, Debora.
