Grungy bear

Is this going to take long?

He really is a grungy bear. Ive joined our village WI and the speaker last week talked about old bears and brought some in that were very grungy looking (but worth a mint!!). I realised that my old teddy is 51 years old now - something of an antique! I may have to get her valued! You never know, she might be worth the price of a home in St Ives! (fingers crossed!)

Ok - you have grabbed me right around the teddy bear! They have to be my favourite person! He is so sweet, all he needs is a big hug!

Oops - forgot to say my teddy is 54 years old and is blind and bald and I love him dearly! He lives beside my bed with my Sweatpea's Teddy (age 51!). Our Teddies live side by side and we are happy!

I love baby boomers! we are real! Hugz

The grungy bear is very appealing. Loved your Autumn post Carolyn!

Love the bear. Mine is 55, virtually bald, lost his growl many years ago, but wears a hand made leather bikers jacket, so he still looks hard.

Hi Carolyn thanks for dropping by to have a look at Blush" who isn't grungy but oh so petite.

I love coming here as your red background makes me happy...love the little bear too and all the fabric photos one can share and use. What a lot you gave today.

who doesn't love a teddy bear and who doesn't have an old bald one-eyed one stashed away somewhere?! so sweet and nostalgic!

You've convinced me. I'm going to retrieve my bear from the family room. It's time for him to live in the bedroom.

Lovely bear line up in your last posts! I have several bears - my dearest,bestest and oldest is 54 years old - I made a portrait of him last year for Illustration Friday, so he has had his moment of fame too! I like these layers you're playing with.
