Today's object is a chap I've mentioned before. In fact, I introduced him through a sketch I posted back in August here.
Yup, it's my teddy bear. Frayed, worn and shabby and as old as me. I couldn't document a month's worth of objects and not include him. He is, after all, my very first possession. And I know I'm not the only adult to still have their childhood teddy. Friends & acquaintances alike have all told me that theirs is still around and loved. Even my beautiful grown up goddaughter keeps cose to hand, Pink Pink, the teddy I bought her. And thanks to the brilliant artist, Grayson Perry, who's teddy, Alan Measles has been a muse for his art, there have been other famous names opening up about their cuddly companions. See here for instance. Alan even has his own twitter account and blog.
Now excuse me, I need to go and cuddle my bear for an hour or two and forget there's a big, nasty world out there.
