One Hundred Days - no.30

Is it just me, or do you love your old teddies just as much as I still love mine?


  1. I don't have anything form my childhood. :-( (we moved a lot: military and all that). My daughter, though, was given the perfect tiny bear when she was born (from the uncle of my au-pair kids in France) and she still has it. It has gone everywhere with her - school trips, family camping trips, WWOOFing, Thailand - and now it's all settled at her side in Ottawa. There's not much left of him - she patched him with bits of a pink terrycloth bathrobe at one point - but he is so beloved. That's him on the very left:

  2. P.S. I wish you sold prints of more of your drawings. This one is simply irresistible. So many are.

  3. oh, Lynn, I'm sorry you didn't manage to keep anything from your childhood. Having an old toy is so silly, but special :-) Your daughter's bear and blog are super-cute - the patched bear reminds me of the story of the Velveteen Rabbit.

    I'd love to put more prints up for sale - I've been a bit lazy on the shop front recently. I'm so pleased you like this drawing. It just seemed right the other day :-) x
