I am posting a photo for Bear Naked as I know she is a fellow teddybear lover. This is a small part of my collection which started off when I was a year old when my dear Mom and Dad bought me one for my first birthday, which I have in many photographs. I will post some of those nostalgia ones later. I don't buy many these days, a lot of them are gifts from family and friends. There are a couple of bears in here my sister gave me and even a sock elephant from my son for this past Mother's Day and one from his work place but I think I cut the poor bear's head off. Hubby has also given me his fair share. They will get their day in the sun another time as I love those gifts as I do all of them, for the sentimental value obviously. When I look at them they take me back in time to the person who gave them to me. If I am lucky enough to go anywhere and I see one with traditional clothing from that area, then I can't resist. I also have teddy figurines but then I'll leave those for another day. Anyhow, just wanted to share these for now and to wish you all a great day.
