If you've been looking at my blog for a while, you may have seen the occasional post of my Teddy Bear collection. They don't appear that often as I haven't bought any for a long time now, but occasionally I am given one that is welcomed as part of the Teddy Bear family and it is just as treasured. I don't think the boys will be interested in this post, but maybe some fellow bear lovers/collectors. If you're interested in the other posts, you can click on the label "Teddy Bears" below this post to see others I have shared. The one of note below is my all-time favorite, the one-eyed teddy bear given to me by my Mum and Dad when I was a year old. Believe me, he's been around for a LONG time!
From another teddy bear lover.
Below there are new additions, the three on the front left were given to me by Celia this past summer on one of our trips down to Virginia Beach. I love them and you can probably see why. I also love my blue-striped sock elephant, honorary teddy bear family member. He was given to me by my dear son. The honorary teddy bear white reindeer was given to me by friend Jackie on our last get-together with the girls and I'm happy he's joined us.
Another view in which you can see a few other Christmas decorations, the woodland Santa on the right which was a gift from Gregg's sister a few years ago, love him! He comes out every December, as do the angels. The little bear angel with the pretty pink dress holding a garland of stars was given to me by Celia last year.
My navy bear and others. Gregg was in the navy which including his years at the Annapolis Navy Academy was over 20 years, so of course when I saw this lovely guy about ten years ago, I had to add him to the family.
Almost time for Christmas Day.
