Photo challenge 23 - Something old



January 23rd 2013

Prompt - Something old

List of prompts I'm working from this month :)


I'm hoping I'm not going to upset the super wonderful husband with this photo; the prompt is something old and this teddy was bought for him when he was a baby so it's as old as he is!
He's wearing the scarf because his little neck is a bit delicate and the scarf helps him keep his head up!
The girls love him and sometimes get him down to play with but they know they have to be gentle with him :)

  16. He is a very beautiful bear and clearly has had a lot of love over the years. My bear sits on top of the wardrobe in our bedroom, well out of reach of my very heavy-handed toddler!
