The story of a little girl and her teddy bear



I was preparing this card for eBay the other day when something about the little girl’s knitted dress reminded me of perhaps another postcard...



I went through my ‘children’s section’ and was pleased to see that my memory had served me well. Two more cards from the same set!



I think that she was told to wait before she picked teddy up.

It's amazing that across so many years these all found their way to you!

The odds would have to be in the billions to one!

Perhaps you should buy a lottery ticket?

:o)

Alan: You wouldn't believe how many lottery tickets we have bought over the years! We even sold a postcard to the grandson-in-law of the original writer. He bought the card without seeing what was written on the back...

I think that there is much more to the postcards than pictures with writing on the back.

Yes, there is much more the pictures with writing. They are geography lessons, they are history books, they leave traces of what our world was and is.

They are mankind's memory.

Shwii! (that's the sound I sometimes make when I see something cute)

These are adorable! It makes me think of me and my teddy bear :P

I love this blog of yours. I don't comment very often, but I still love to drop in and look around. ^^ The different cards are fun to look at.

Peter: they certainly are, I've learnt so much from them.

Littleo: I'm pleased that you are enjoying my cards. These are mostly my favourites

She is so precious. I bet that Teddy was her best friend. :o)

I liked the one with her in her little hat the best.

A very sweet postcard.

Titania: He really is a lovely teddy. I was given one to hold by a photographer once - I wasn't very happy about giving it back.

Henry: Thank you for the award. I will get round to sorting it out soon....

You know, when I see pictures like these it makes me rather sad. I think about how this little girl has probably passed away by now. It is a shame that people can't stay around forever like photos.

Anji said...

Ken: Thanks for visiting. I am getting used to it. We have lots of pictures of the proud soldiers off to World War I, but I don't think I'll ever get used to that. In some ways the postcards do give them a chance to live on....

What a beautiful set of cards. Thanks for sharing them. And to think you've sold to a relative who didn't know what was written on it is beyond amazing.

You must spend a lot of time getting to know your cards to recognize the dress the little girl had on. You're amazing!

May you have a Christ filled Christmas!

DB: I'm amazed at the little details I can recall sometimes. You know, If I had my way I would keep most of the postcards.
