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 🙂

  4. That is an absolutely divine teddy bear; well loved! I like the staging of the photograph too!

    Thanks for linking up

    1. It wasn't until after I took the photo that I realised he was next to the old books…his home is right there on the book shelf which is obviously the perfect place for him 🙂

  5. I love your photo. I still have my teddy bear, he has pride of place on my bed, along with a 'Best Mummy' teddy that Dot bought me.

    1. Awww I love things with Best Mummy on! I look forward to Mother's Day because they always buy me something, be it a keyring, fridge magnet etc saying Best Mummy 🙂

  6. Aw that's gorgeous – he must be well taken care of x

    1. He's very well loved 🙂

  7. You need a Teddy bears picnic

    1. I might have to mention it to the girls when the weather warms up. They'd LOVE to have a teddy bears picnic with him!

  8. Aww, such a gorgeous bear!! I have a knitted sheep I've had since I was a baby and he's considerably flatter than the bear! 😀

    1. His stuffing has done well to last the years; his fur….not so much!

  9. A seriously beautiful bear. I can see why your girls love him

    1. I fear arguments when they're older over who's going to have him!

  10. WOW that looks like a well kept bear… 🙂 x

    1. I reckon he's got another 50 years in him! 🙂

  11. I have one that could be his twin! *of an era*

    1. Maybe they are long lost twins?! 🙂

  12. that bear is gorgeous, it looks very well loved!

    1. Thank you 🙂

  13. 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!

    1. The girls are quite gentle now but it wasn't always the case and ted had to be put out of the way when they were younger!

  14. My teddy and Percy the Penguin and the husband's teddy/panda are proudly displayed on my daughters shelves. She is very protective of them.

    1. That's lovely 🙂 I know one of the children (my husband has 9 all together) will carry on looking after him for years to come 🙂

  15. what a well kept and much loved teddy bear. he is in such good condition too.he has a lovely kind face too x

    1. My husband says it's a wonder he's in as good condition as he is after all he put him through when he was younger!

  16. That's such a lovely memory to have! I've still got the teddy that was bought the day I was born and I hope to still have him in years to come.

    1. Kaycee was bought a big yellow duck when she was born and he's her favourite thing in the world. I hope he lasts as long as her daddy's teddy 🙂

  17. Wow – he is ion very good nick, its lovely he's had him for so long!

    1. It is, he's very special 🙂

  18. aww bless what a beautiful old bear 🙂

    1. Thank you 🙂

  19. My mum has one very similar,

    1. I bet he's well loved 🙂

  20. Oh wow! Great teddy. I havent kept any of mine! Regret it now.

    1. I know how you feel xx

  21. If toys could talk…

    1. Wow what a thought….he's definitely seen his fair share of life!

  22. That is amazing! I so wish I had kept some of my toys from when I was small. Great that you have kept it and he is looking good for his age.

    1. There are loads of toys I wish I'd have kept from my childhood as well; I'd love to share them with my children.

  23. Lovely teddy, looks great next to the old books too.

    1. Thank you 🙂

  24. A great bear – my husband has his which has been given to our son and I have an owl which has been given to my daughter they sit watching them sleep from the book shelves in their room each night

    1. Awww that's lovely 🙂

    1. Thanks 🙂

  25. What a beautiful well loved bear he looks like.

    I've got an old teddy that I've had for 30 years and he doesn't look as well looked after as him

    1. He does have a special place in my husband's heart 🙂

  26. I still have my bear from birth too, hopefully 27 isn't classed as old though! x

    1. I can't recall ever having one, I'll have to ask my mum.
      27 is definitely not old! 🙂

  27. Ah, I've got an old Elephant whose a little bit worse for wear now!

    1. We bought Ella an Elephant when she was born; she loves it 🙂

  28. See that, Little Ted, you're famous, now.

  29. He's gorgeous. I feel a bit guilty now because my 46 yr old teddy is in the loft…

    1. I think if I had one of my own, he'd be in the loft also!

    2. *gasps* poor teddy 🙁

Don't be shy, come and talk to me! :o)
