Je Suis Paris


I know this is a little late, but after the horrific events in Paris Friday night, I just couldn’t bring myself to post this as I had planned on Saturday.

~ Animated teddies from Sevenoaks Art ~

After being glued to CNN for most of the weekend, I feel the need for something a little lighthearted and fun, so I hope you’ll indulge me. Besides, you know what? It’s never too late to celebrate Teddy Bear Day!

If you go down to the woods today

You’re in for a big surprise.

If you go down to the woods today

You’d better go in disguise!

For every bear that ever there was

Will gather there for certain,

Because today’s the day the

Teddy Bears have their picnic.

~ Lyrics by Jimmy Kennedy ~

~ Illustration by Michael Hague ~

I stopped there because I’ve always found the rest of the song a littleΒ scary.


Please remember on today of all days you’re never too old to have a teddy bear!


My bear Philbin



Even gorgeous vampires have a softer side!



It’s Ted! Need I say more?




Okay. I have to admit, this is a little obsessive!



Even boy bands need some downtime.



It can’t be a surprise that Ellen’s a Teddy Bear fan.



And finally, because I know you probably never thought I’d be able to tie in cuddly teddies with the Winchester brothers from Supernatural, well think again!

And one more ’cause this just never gets old!
