teddy bear

This little teddy bear was given to me by my mother about a year before she passed away so it is very dear to me.  We shared so many of the same interests. Reading (mysteries, especially old English tea cozy mysteries). Crafting (especially embroidery). Gardening (especially planting bulbs and annuals). Movies. Teddy Bears. Dollhouse miniatures. Dogs. Live Theater.  I could go on for a long time yet ...

This September will be the 16th anniversary of her passing ... miss you so very much Mom! 

I'm joining Claudia's new fun link party, A Favorite Thing Saturday
I look forward to seeing what your favorites are too.
You can join the fun here.


  1. The bear is so very sweet and adorable. Your mother gave you a wonderful gift and I imagine it's priceless to you. I'm thinking of you as you remember her this September.

    Thank you SO much for joining in on my party.


  2. What a sweet bear, and such a sweet memory! The link party sounds fun -- I'll be joining soon!!

  3. I love your sweet little teddy.
    I have a few that are very special to me.
    I have the same kind of sweet memories of my grandmother.
    Smiles, Dottie

  6. Dearest Sally,
    What a lovely tribute to you Momma. Your little teddy bear is so sweet and your heart must feel warmed when you hold it.
    My Mother is in her 90s and her health is failing. As I read your post I am so aware that these days with her are ones to treasure.
    Blessings and thank you so much for sharing your heart.
