With a little one on the way in our household, my thoughts revolve around babies and kiddos and my own childhood. (I can't help it!) So you can imagine the size of my smile when I saw these precious commissioned custom toy portraits. Oh how I love this. The artist, Jennifer Maher, paints these little treasures for as low as $60 for a 5x7!! Hello amazing Christmas gift!! Check out her website here.
I actually didn't grow up with a stuffed animal that comforted me when I went to bed - I had a soft yellow "blanky" that I was rather smitten with. My husband had a little stuffed dog - PupPup. I've met little PupPup - I think he was either missing an eye or missing an ear, and has been hugged within an inch of his life as he longer has any "stuffing" to help keep his shape. But PupPup is just perfect. I love that Tommy's mother kept him all these years.
Did you have a favorite childhood toy?
