This is......

This is.... my most treasured childhood possession(s). I found it hard to choose...........

A bluebird necklace. I also have a bracelet with my name engraved into it from my Dad but it's too little for my wrist. When my daughter was born the first thing my Dad did was get the same bracelet with my daughter's name engraved on it. So sweet.

My dear dear teddy bear who was always known as 'Teddy.' All of my other toys had 'proper' names but my teddy bear was always 'Teddy.' Here he is enjoying some winter sunshine.

Just the two of us!

My set of 72 Derwent Pencils. I begged and begged for these and finally got them one Christmas. It was the best Christmas ever! Almost as good as when I got the Pretty n Pink Barbie......

I think my sister had that same teddy. He's cute, and well loved. And the bluebird necklace is sweet. I have a bluebird brooch that I wear all the time, almost lost it and was super sad, but then found it in a pocket (it had fallen off the pin and safety chain?!). It's very much treasured.
And Derwents are a good one. Nice.

Oh, how I coveted the 72-pack of Derwents when I was young too!
I received a lovely set of 48 beatutifully smooth and richly-coloured Faber-castell pencils on my 9th birthday, and I was given the Derwents when I was about 11. I found them again this year (25 years later!) and gave them to my 9-year-old niece. Hope she likes them :-)
