winnie the pooh

These colors & patterns remind me of
Winnie the Pooh & Tigger too.

When I was little,
 my aunt sewed a homemade
Winnie the Pooh for me.
I got it for Christmas.

It was the color of these shoes.

I took that Winnie the Pooh with me
all over my childhood house.

For a time, it was my favorite stuffed animal.

The stuffing started to come out
 of my bear.

The arms were falling off,
& the head was hanging by a thread.

I remember being sad,
for I liked to think my toys were real.

My aunt ended up making me
 a total of 3 Pooh Bears.

I loved them all so much, they fell apart.

For a long time I kept them on a shelf.

Can you see my brother's feet,
& his face?
He's behind my nephew.

I wanted to keep them for always.

Who is that bratty child? 

One day I must have thrown them away.

My mom made my dress, 
& she made my cake too.

For I don't have those homemade Pooh Bears anymore. I don't know what happened to them. 

This is Chandra's tattoo.
No, I don't know her,
but I like her tattoo.

I imagine I thought in order to be a grown up,
I had to let go of my childhood.

I like this tattoo.
 I don't know why I found it here.

I don't know what I was thinking.
I wish I still had them.

Who is your favorite Winnie the Pooh character?

  3. My favorite Pooh character is Pooh himself! I love those dresses!

  4. Teddi darling, I am sorry if you felt sorry for the child in the photo with santa but, that child who is an adult now, sent the photo in to awkward family photos. It was meant to be funny not sad. Have a great day. The runway clothing is exquisite. Dawn Suitcase Vignettes

  5. Aww your nephew is too cute! Let's see.. I always have a hard time choosing faves because always love everyone.. but I would say my favorites were Piglet and Pooh Bear.

    The documentary about the neapolitan tailors I saw was called "O'mast". I tried to look it up to see if they had it on youtube, but I only found the trailer:

    If you follow the suggested videos along the sidebar, you might be able to find some of the interviews, too. It was really fascinating!!!

  6. Oh I like all of them, I guess! Pooh, the tiger, but I guess I LOVE piglet! So, that's my favorite!
    I loved the dresses!
    And your pictures as a child!
    I wish I had some of my old toys too...
    Have a great week! Buy a little Pooh for you, I have lots of toys myself, no joke! Dolls, teaddy bears, I love them!

  22. Love shoes by Aquilano!! Amazing!!

  23. Wow! One thing I love about your blog is how you mix fashion with pieces from your past and personality :)

    I used to love Winnie the Pooh too. About an hour's drive from where I live there's a woods where the owners of the area put doors and windows onto the trees and signposted them like the '100 aker woods', so for a long time I was convinced that they all were real and lived in those trees, only they were 'out' whenever I went to visit! :)

  24. Lol, great comparison! The colors are so much alike!
    I used to love winnie the pooh also, and u look so cute as a little girl <3

  25. awww how sad!! :(

  26. Such a beautiful post!
