Pad Pad Paddington!
I can’t begin to tell you how happy this photo of Hugh Bonneville and his Paddington statue makes me.
I mean seriously. It’s Paddington Bear AND Downton Abbey rolled into one! *swoons*
The London Trail officially opened last week, with 50 Paddington statues scattered around the city. It’s fun to see all the different designs, the many “possibilities” of our favorite bear from darkest Peru.
I think “The Journey of Marmalade” is my fave, but here are a few others I especially love:
Visit the Paddington Trail website to see all the bear statues, notes about their designers, and a map of where the statues can be found. At the end of December, all the statues will be auctioned off for charity. How cool is that?!
Have a chunky marmalade kind of week!
(Tip your hat whenever possible.) 🙂 🙂 🙂
ETA: Today’s Hugh’s Birthday!
Now we must definitely have marmalade sandwiches today in his honor! Happy Birthday, Hugh!
