My Christmas Bear - Show and Tell Friday

I want to share My Christmas Bear.  This is the perfect time and place.  My Christmas Bear was given to me when I was six months old (December 24, 1941).  My mom and dad bought this bear for me on my First Christmas.  Teddy is 15" tall and well worn.  Under his arms and between his legs where the light has not reached is the original most beautiful cinnamon color.  Teddy's arms and legs move, but his head does not.  When Teddy was 35 years old, I had his nose, eyes and the pads on his paws redone.
As you can see the mohair is getting thinner as he is getting older.  I seem to be having the same problem with my hair.  I love to look at him.  I should put him away in a dark place to preserve his fur, but I just don't have the heart to.  I love him so much and I want to enjoy him everyday.  I hope you have enjoyed my Show and Tell today.  I'm joining Cindy at My Romantic Home for Show and Tell Friday.  Be sure to visit  her and see the amazing blogs.
