This little brown bear with toothpaste on his face and foot will be 61 years old soon. He was given to me by my godparents when I was born. He has been moved more times than I can count and has spent lots of time in the teddy bear Tupperware storage box. But he has been out and enjoying the country life now for about 7 years. I don’t think I have to tell you who climbed out of their crib, grabbed the toothpaste tube and squirted toothpaste all over his face and brown fuzzy body. Poor old bear. My Mom told me the story all too frequently. Teddy’s face has seen a lot of love from way back when I was little and I think his face suffered from the scrubbing he got to get the toothpaste off. His face and that red ribbon crack me up. I am sure that is not the original red ribbon. I am also sure my Mom lovingly tied many a new red ribbon for him. I think his right black button eye might have lovingly been reattached too. His face however is the original. Except for you know that toothpaste that just didn’t quite all come off.
Other bears and their fuzzy faces that reside here at the Tiny Ten.

Also please check out Laurel’s Teddy at her blog Rockin’ the Purple. Her old Teddy is a super sweet bear and has amazingly wonderful character. And Laurel’s blog is an excellent read. Comments can get downright rowdy and crack up funny. There is a very serious important thing going on at Rockin’ the Purple too. Laurel is recovering from not one but two serious life threatening diseases that we should all educate ourselves about. She handles it with a wonderful sense of funny and honesty.
