Interesting find at garage sale- Pat’s letter teddy bear

O.k so while i was at my part time, this church from across our apartment was having a yard sale, my sister tells me she found a cute teddy bear and has gotten it for me, she paid 50 cents for it. Little did we knew that this little teddy bear hold a incredible secrets.

The teddy bear, or as I call him, Pappi, had writing all over him. At first we thought it was some scribble made by little kids, but the more we examined it closely it was an old writing wishing someone well. One thing we noticed is that the teddy bear was presented at 4/15/1944. Guys this teddy is like 73 years old.

There is so much thing that is unusual about Pappi, and here are couple of things we figured out so far.

-It was gifted to a girl name Patula, but everyone calls her Pat. And according to the letters she was a sweet and swell gal.

-All the letters where indicating that she was going away somewhere, one writer stated that they will soon meet at Tulsa.

-Pappi was signed by 25 different people, who really treasured Pat.

- Black inks turn brown over long period of time, so this is as legit as it can get.

-Pappi’s design is highly unusual for a teddy who is from 40′s. He has no sign indicating that he was manufactured. (Such as logo print, or a button with company name engraved to it) Not only that he was made with a cloth instead of being covered with fur like the rest of the teddy from that time period.

Here is an example of type of teddy bear that was common in that time frame, a popular one from the 1940 was the Steiff teddy bears.)

-There is a high indication that Pappi has been hand made by someone from scratch, likely with a sewing machine. Whoever made him ran out of materials and left his arm in a simple floppy design, again i shall mention, is a unusual design choice compare to a popular designs.

-We know for the fact that, Pat adored this bear and treasured it, keeping it such incredible condition for past 70 years.

-It’s possible that Pat is no longer with us.

-And my sister and I know for a fact that Pat’s family saw no value in it and decided to simply toss it at a yard sale.

It’s sad to see such wonderful thing to be thrown out like this, honestly this teddy bear belongs in a museum, not because how old or unusual it is but because of the love put in by the 25 different people and the owner who took such good care of it for seven decades.

But for now, I think this teddy deserves some cuddling.

Whelp, where ever you are Ms.Pat, I adore this really strange, mysterious and sentimental teddy, Pappi gets to see sunshine and travels with me now.

Hiccstrid Appreciation Post

Okay so like many of you know now, Hiccstrid became official in RTTE S4.

I just would like to say some words about my ship I followed since 2015 now. 

Since the premiere of S1 all we had in mind during the serie was “When will we get this Hiccstrid kiss?”. Don’t lie, lot of us were like that and me too. Now that we finally get this Hiccstrid kiss, I would like to send a big thank you to the producters and especially John Telleguen who had to endure us during all those time during we were complaining.

I want to thank them too for not put Hiccstrid official since the beginning because if we think about it, it would have been a little strange and we certainly will not be able to appreciate this two as much as we do know.

So thank you to make this incredible evolution of Hiccup and Astrid becoming a couple cause this is this evolution that I enjoyed the most as many of you I think.

Hiccup and Astrid are such a beautiful couple cause they were best friends firstly and they became more than that. It’s an healthy relationship because of that. They’re acting like friends and not as a stupid couple when they had difficulties to deal with protecting each other during the last episodes of S4 for example. They speak about how they feel and don’t stay in their own and I really appreciate that cause as Hiccup said: “It’s what makes us, well, us.”

Also, I noticed, since I watch the serie, that the physical contact were really a good indicator of their relationship’s evolution. And I adore it. 

So I will let you with those images from S1 to S4.

S1 : “But I still have you.”

S2 : “What took you so long?”

S3 : “I can’t imagine a world whitout you in it.”

S4 : “There will always be a Hiccup and Astrid, always.”
