Friday's smile

I seem to have so many things that has happened in the last week that has made me smile.  

My birthday was celebrated with my darling hubby taking the day off  from work so we could enjoy some quality time together including lunch out  :-)  In the evening the men had a football match to go to so Jo joined me with my gorgeous three children, my son's finance and my wonderful 5 little grandchildren.....we had just the best evening ever with lots of fun, giggles, birthday cake and our sitting room was filled with love....who could ask for more?

Hubby and I have been sorting out the attic....lots of bags full of those things you just might want one day but never do have been taken to the charity shop or tip and bags full of teddies, dolls and our children's toys have been sorted and handed over for them to keep in their own homes if so wished.  One of my pictures today is off little Steve playing with just a few of his mummy's teddies.....she used to have 100s and kept records of them all sat on the shelves in her bedroom  :-)

I have a feeling he has the same love of bears that his mummy had but I just know some of her bears will be put well away from the children because I know they still hold very special memories to her [and me too].

The other pic I'm sharing today is the latest feltie I've just finished.  Her name is Rose and she is now waiting over in our blog shop for someone to adopt her

I hope you have enjoyed your visit today.
Have a great weekend.

Aw, what a lovely post Annie - sounds as if your loft was housing a veritable tribe of teddies, and you didn't even charge them rent!

Love Rosie, so sweet. Happy Friday my friend!

Hugs, Di

Lovely photo of Steve and the teddies. My two nieces collected those little stuffed toys (can't remember the name now - Beanie Babies???) that were the rage years ago and my sister has sack-loads in her attic.

I love cute little Rose.

Have a good weekend

Sounds like a wonderful birthday. Glad the teddies found new homes where they will get to play!

You are very brave to face your loft ...but Steve looks very happy with all those teddies.
Rose is gorgeous.xx

Aw! Such a cutie smiler!
Rose is gorgeous too. I am not allowed to have any more teddies here... people have been known to ask where the children are! LOL!

I've never worked with felt figure making, but I am fascinated by it. Your child's picture is precious. Blessings!

Darling pic! When I got rid of bags of my kids stuffies, I think I was traumatized...each one with a special memory! LOL But...they had to go(all but one or two LOL)
