2009 Scottie Convention - Bonnie Dalbey's Old Display

The highlight of the Scottie Convention held each year in Cincinnati, Ohio is the Old Displays. This year, I video taped several of the wonderful displays with the exhibitors chatting about their Scottie collection.

This is hopefully #1 in a continuing series. First up, Bonnie Dalbey and her pink & green Scottie collection.

Phyllis Larson's Scottie Room

Phyllis loves plush Scotties and they each hold a special place in her heart. One entire room in the Larson's home is dedicated to Phyllis' Scottie Collection. Enjoy the video of it below.

To see the detailed photos of the Larson's entire Scottie collection, click here.

A special thanks to the Larsons for letting us descend upon their home taking photos/video and giving other Scottie collectors a rare chance to see this extensive collection from Chatsworth, California.

Janet Taylor's Scottie Christmas Tree

Janet Taylor's Raleigh, NC paper asked for pictures of unusual Christmas trees. These are just a few of the many pictures she took to get the 'right one'. Her tree of Scottie ornaments was one of seven picked and featured in the paper. She also got good photos of Ceilidh (who had just turned 14). How many of these ornaments are on your Scottie tree?

Karen's Christmas Time Trip to the Big Apple

Larry Adams, Don Mutch and I went on a one day bus trip to NYC in early December to look at the Christmas decorations. We jumped off the bus at 10:45 am and did not stop walking until 7:15 when the bus departed for the ride back to Delaware.

Macy's theme this year was "Believe" and everything was red (photo below). We rode the wooden escalators to the 9th floor, just for the fun of riding wooden escalators again. (Not that any of us are old enough to remember wooden ones!) The windows along Fifth Avenue were amazing, but because of the crowds it was difficult to take photos.

In the photo below, the star was suspended over 5th Avenue. It was lighted at night, but shone in the direct sunlight.

Bergdorf-Goodman had small windows for each month and the Judith Lieber Scottie bag was featured in the March window.
Don discovered the Scottie logo at the Juicy Couture boutique.

The Cartier building was a package wrapped with red ribbon, with awnings covered in greens and lights.
