Welcome to Blogland Jody

This blog is just the best. For those of you not familar with Jody Battaglia (is there anyone out there who DOESN"T know her her work?) it is so full of fun and whimsey. Jody finds her inspiration from vintage children's books from the 1950's, and her work is the best.

Jody is getting ready for the big Teddy Bear Show in London. We've had such fun going there together and meeting up with our good friend Marijan from Holland. This year the two of them will be forging ahead without me. I'm green with envy, but am not able this year....saving our coins for a trip to Rome to see the fam... Jen, Jay and Baby Claude.

Does she make you smile on this cold wintry day

Jody is also a HUGE collector... I'm sure that she will be bringing home lots o' fun goodies from London... please think of me JODY. I will be missing you both!!


  1. I am enjoying Jodi's Blog! Would love to buy that Sunshines Nellie! I have the prefect place for Nellie too!
    Enjoy your time in Rome Pat and Tom!!

  2. Hello Pat...I am overwhelmed in that good sort of way. You are so kind and generous to include me in your blog. This is something that I hardly ever say...but "I am speechless!" Pat yourself on the back for being such a good friend. Lucky me!
    Have silly good friend fun, Jody

  3. It's so good to see Jody in blog land and her work is just AMAZING!!!!! I love that little mouse he's so darn cute.....and that snowman he just melts my heart. I hope she has a great time in England....I can't wait to see what she blogs about. :0)
