You're a Scruffy Old Bear, But I love You.

I get some awesome emails from people all over the world with something of the same theme: they're now grown adults, with children of their own, still holding on to a teddy bear given to them when they were tots. Some are hidden in closets, some are proudly on display, and some have been heir loomed off to a younger generation who we all hope will cling to the little bear with love. So, I had to a do a bear in honor of scruffy old bears everywhere.

The bear looks classic, old, slightly worn, a touch faded with age, but the look on his face still proud and attentive, protective, ready to assume his responsibilities and duties at any age.

Love Scruffy! :) Sadly, my teddy bear and bed pal was lost when moving. Maybe it's time to create one in his honor! :)

Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.

You and Scruffy are very photogenic. Another great bear as usual.

Love your scruffybear. I still have my first teddy and he is 66 years old. He used to by brown and white, but as aged into two shades of dirt. He has had at least three sets of eyes ---the most current are pink pearl buttons, installed when I was about five or six years old. He is wearing a pink flowered t-shirt that my Mom made for him at about the same time of the pink eye installation. My BEAR MANTRA is: Friends may come and friends may go, but a Mans best Friend is His BEAR.

Once again a great thought process and what a nice picture.
