Snapshot Sunday: There’s a Bear in there, or two or three.

Here are some of my favourite teddy bears.I’ve been collecting them for some years now. I don’t know how many I have but these are a few I grouped together for a photo. Vanda has come to the rescue with her knitting needles in hand to knit warms jumpers for some of them to wear. The fur has worn a bit thin on some poor teds. She has been wonderful help stitching on loose ears and even replacing a lost eye or two. She made the ears for the one in the patterned jumper. The big teddy at the back is one of my favourites. He is a cheery fellow. Tiny Ted the smallest bear is also a favourite. They all are really. They are all so cute and cuddly.



I came to Australia with my mother and sister Vanda in 1966 from the UK aboard the Sitmar liner Castel Felice. We settled in South Australia I lived in the western suburbs of Adelaide for most of my life. I became very interested in retro items in my twenties. It was always a dream of mine to have an old house and fill it with retro items. I have done it twice now. My main interest is collecting old things. They do not have to be valuable, only interesting. There is something reassuring about old retro items. I have all sorts of things including doll related items. My other interests are my beautiful pets, art and going for drives to who knows where. I also enjoy board games or doing a scenic jig saw puzzle on a wintry afternoon by the fire. My goal is to travel a bit more as there are some places I would love to see
