Strumpet's Crumpets Memory Lane Project

A few days ago I found my Lucy bear in my old room and realized I've had her since the day I was born. Kinda crazy because now that I'm 28. Lucy is the one thing I've had the longest! I took that bear EVERYWHERE! I tried cutting Lucy's hair, I'd make clothes for her, she'd go in the outside play house my dad built us, she'd go on vacations with us, I'd talk to her as if she was real, she was so important to me! My mom's mom gave her to me. Lucy is a GUND brand bear, but growing up I thought it was GUN, and I thought that was a strange name for a bear brand. I'm not sure why her name is Lucy, obviously I didn't name her, or maybe I did - Mags (my mom) will know, I'll ask her. When my sister was born, she was given the exact same bear, but we could always tell them apart because my Lucy was very beat up and still to this day Lauren's Lucy (because she named it the same as mine ;)) is so soft and perfect, where mine is a little ratty. Lucy trumped all toys. Just seeing that bear brought back all these great/hilarious/wonderful memories.....
...SO then I thought everyone should join in! 
Now I'm starting Project Memory Lane
Here's what you do:
1.Find the oldest, most important, most memorable item of your childhood - maybe a blanket or stuffed animal, it could be anything really.
2. Tell a little story about it and if you can take a photo, email it to me and/or blog about it yourself, and if you email me at
I'll blog about it right here on Strumpet's Crumpets!
3. Tell all your blog buds to join in!

So what do you think! Wanna join me on a trip down [Project] Memory Lane!?
 Let's keep the trip going all through February! Sound good! :)

This is a great idea! I had a soft toy cat called Bobo. I just had a pang of worry cause I can't remember which safe place he is in... Will definitely play along when I find him :)

Most of my things are interstate at my parents house, including the first toy I got (a cute panda that had a jingly/weird noise in its tummy when you moved it) and a tshirt on! but I will do it about my other favorite childhood toy! :)
