The Teddies In The Window – My Sunday Photo – 25/06/17

Hello everyone. As my close Twitter friends know I live on the side of a rather steep hill. Every Friday I have to walk up what I have now christened as ‘That Bastard Hill’ on my way to work.

Although I dislike the climb, there is something quite cool at the top of the hill. A corrugated tin building that looks like it should be a scouts hut, but I am told was once a shop.

Whatever its purpose once was, it is unused now. Well mostly unused. There is a window in this building and in the window live a family of teddy bears.

Who the bears belong to few people in the village seem to know.  But whoever the owner is, they make the most amazing window displays with the family of bears.

Every few weeks the bears are set up in a different display complete with tiny bear sized accessories. The changes always happen in the evening so few people see it happening.  It is almost as if the bears move by magic.


I have been taking pictures of the bears for the last 3 and a half years that we have lived in the village. These are admittedly not wonderful quality, but I would like to share the best of them here.

The teddys held a summer fayre last year.
Each December the teddys decorate their Christmas tree.
The teddys love to play with their train set.
Even in winter the teddys like to go for a stroll in the forest.


The latest teddy picture on my phone. They are currently making the most of the warm weather.

I think the teddys are amazing, and would love to be able to photograph them better, so if anyone has any tips on how to take decent pictures from the outside,  through a window, with a phone camera please share them.

    The changing scene gives you something to look forward to on your walk. I love the different seasonal clothes.

    I feel your pain! I live at the top of a steep hill so every venture out means a stiff climb up but there is nothing like this at the top – I wish there was it’s just wonderful #MySundayPhoto

    The bastard hill made me chuckle, we have one too and I’m a sweaty mess by the time I get to the top! I love that window through and I think I’d stand in front of it for ages!

    I love that tradition! I think I’d be taking lots of images of the bears too as they changed. #MySundayPhoto
