The Great Pumpkin Caper!

One of my recent artistic journeys has led me to collect antique photographs and postcards of children with their teddy bears. I've amassed a goodly sum of them now and have been photocopying them for use in my mixed media/altered art projects. The picture to the right is one such project. The little girl reminds me of myself......determined to go the distance with her teddy bear in tow. My family will recognize the teddy bear as my husband Bill. Bless his heart!!

Warmest bear hugs, Aleta

Great display. And the comment about your husband made me laugh. I love old photos. But haven't seen any with teddybears. Yet at least.
