The travelers have returned and I am trying to mix it up with a few photos of what might be considered highlights from the show. Because we’ve attended TBAI for quite a few years, I think it might be easy to be redundant with photos from year to year. I hope you enjoy these glimpses of the fun and festivities and friends. At the end, there is a quiz which I am quite certain you will ace because you all are quite clever.
The first thing was the Sock Hop which was loads of fun. I especially enjoyed not having to wear shoes!
The is another photo of the Sock Hop and reception.
Here’s a lovely couple that came all the way from the UK. Aren’t they festive?!
Elanor Andrews is Shantock Bears and Lex is her entertaining assistant.
The lovelies below were on display throughout the reception. Lots of temptation!
Here’s to mixing up the timeline. This is a snapshot I took during the show on Saturday from the vantage point of my table. The show was filled with many wonderful creations.
I caught Sebastian just hanging about behind the scenes. He looks quite relaxed, doesn’t he?
Jumping back in time, this is Elanor and me just before the TBAI feast. It was a little more formal than the Sock Hop. And we didn’t plan to wear the same color!
Now I have to say these three photos might just be my favorites from the show – or more accurately, the picnic at the zoo after the show. This lovely lady holding Sebastian is Karen and in these photos she epitomizes what I love about these events – the laughter. And we did have some great laughs all weekend long!
I promised you a quiz – it’s a very short one. This is my table Friday afternoon before the show on Saturday. Take a good look.
Now this is my table before the show opened on Saturday morning. Can you see what’s different about it - aside from the fact the lighting is wonky?
Did you figure it out? Did you notice the framed certificate on the left side of the table?
I was presented with Second Place for my Fairy Berry Birthday Feast (8” & under). It was exciting to receive this award voted on by those in attendance! The feast is now on its way to its new home in California. I wouldn’t mind a trip to California myself! Maybe the fairies can arrange that for me.
I’ll poke around in my files for the photos of teddy bears for next time. Until then, thanks so much for reading!
