I wrote quite a few teddy bear stories , and we still have several ornamental bears on our shelf here together with a collection of hedgehogs and some other precious items which attract happy memories. I’d like to share some of these with you periodically.
Hubby and I have always liked the humble hedgehog, and when we bought our first house, had regular visitors.
There are various lists for gifts, and the one I found showed that the Fourth anniversary was BOOKS, not linen as shown above. I therefore bought him The Complete Hedgehog which seemed very apt at the time.
Apparently hedgehog numbers are in decline here, so we were glad to see several on the marina before winter and to pass the information on. Maggie was curious and got too close once which resulted in a surprised yelp so now she leaves them alone.
Over the years, I have tried to give Hubby a traditional gift as per our anniversary celebration, though in some instances, I’ve had to think outside the box to comply with the list.
For one in particular, we had similar ideas, and I’m still wearing mine (that’ll be the subject of another post) .
