My Best Friends Birthday

This is Ted and today is his birthday. My grandmother purchased him with Top Value Stamps and handed him to me the day I was born (or so the story goes), it was love at first sight.
(note: If you aren't familiar with Trading Stamps please see The Brady Bunch season 1 episode 15)

We've been through a lot together and there were times when I felt like he was my only friend. He knows all of my secrets and he's always been there to comfort me. He is and will always be my best friend.

The only thing I can't figure out is that Ted turns 5o today and I'm only 42....it must have something to do with bear years. : )



  1. Dearest sweet Paula, ted is ssoooo adorable and HAPPY birthday to him! Such a precious gift from your grandmama and you kept him so well all these years! This post really made me smile and warms my heart! Have a lovely merry happy mid-week and love to you!


  2. Very cute, Paula. You brought back some fond memories with this one and a big smile! Happy Birthday, Lady. Love your creations.

  3. Happy birthday to you and Ted! We used to have S&H stamps in our part of the country, and I certainly remember that episode of the Brady Bunch.

    Have a great day!
