From when it first came into our lives, and the adventures it has had...
To where it is now ... and who has loved it ... and will continue to! :-)
We feel it is time to tell those stories to the world,
and not leave the much loved bears behind to gather dust on the shelf or in the attic ...
almost forgotten ...
So, Bring Out Your Bear, give it a really big hug and ask it to remind you of the stories it has to tell, I'm sure it will bring joy to your heart, and its bear heart too.
My Bear Family Tales
Over the years I have collected many old bears, well, most of them were new when I got them ... :-) ...
Here are some of their stories, with pictures of bears to illustrate them.
I hope you enjoy reading them...
My Old Bear Stories Orangey and Shuggy
Old Bear Stories Orangey and Shuggy Playing Chess
These two hand knitted teddy bears were bought at a Christmas church jumble sale at St Aloysius in Oxford about forty years ago. The stall holder told me that the lady who knitted them was in a wheel chair, and made them especially for the jumble sale.
I could not choose which one I wanted to get, and I wanted both! So my parents bought one (Shuggy - as a Christmas present) and I bought the other (Orangey - for straight away). However, the bags got mixed up and I got the wrong one (Shuggy) for straight away. This is quite important when you are only six!
Old Bear Stories - Orangey and Shuggy enjoying the sun in a flower border
Shuggy is named after his "fur" colour which looked like brown sugar! Orangey is named after the colour of his shirt!
Old Bear Stories - Orangey and Shuggy with some flowers
At one point, Shuggy, the one with the red shirt, fell into the bath!! When he had fully dried out and recovered after his "swim", he smelled a bit funny - a bit like wet fresh maize. Fortunately, the smell has gone now. Orangey has learned from his brother's mistake and not been tempted to go swimming!
I hope you have had fun reading my story about bears , and seeing the teddy bear pics.
