  9. oh boy, am going to have a pretty good day today ... love those colourful bears. if all the bears in your country are as colourful as these displayed here, nobody would run away from them.

  12. Oh my goodness, that's just funny. We had moose years ago in Toronto, but they got auctioned for charity and now they are all over the place throughout Ontario.

  17. Love these. Back in 2001 we had
    57 gators decorated this way.
    And a nearby community had 52 horses
    on display.

    Bears are definitely my favorite !!

  33. It's funny how different places use different themes like this. In Maine, it was lighthouses.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog! Plenty more seascapes in my Etsy shop: IntuitivePhotography.Etsy.com.

  34. Oh, this makes me nostalgic for the Chicago Cows they had years ago. I lived Downtown at the time and was always passing cows on the way to school and work and just going for a walk.

    These bears are adorable and you put them together so well.

    Awesome WW!

    Here’s mine!

  35. Belfast Maine did a Bears show many years ago - the Bears are the mascot of University of Maine and I remember having such a great time rambling around town looking at all the wonderful variations of ways to decorate a bear.

  36. I went to Mass in Belfast Maine once...no bears were involved.
    Now Belfast Ireland is another matter.
