Have you by chance heard of The Toy Society?? I first heard of it from my bloggy buddy Jacquie, otherwise known as MafiosaGrrl. Thanks Jacquie!! Y'all can join in the fun too, just go to the website and sign up!
The Toy Society "is a craft/street art project spreading love through out the streets of the world." You simply make a small hand made, kid friendly toy and plant it somewhere to be found by a child... I love random acts of kindness, something for nothing. People (kiddies with the help of their parents) who find the toys can go to the website, to learn about who made their toy and report where and how they found it if they choose to. Isn't that neato?!?
I've wanted to do this for a while, this is something that I think I'll really enjoy doing more of in the future. Making someone happy right here in my own town. I believe kindness starts in our own back yards.
This was fun for me, I hope the little one who finds my toy gets as much pleasure from having it, as I did making it!
Here she is, my first toy... A Tea Time Teddy!
All dolled up and ready for a tea party!
She's bringing flowers for the table...
...and her own favorite tea cup...
She even wore her best "pearls".
Ready to find a new home!
Bye-bye Tea Teddy! It was fun making you, I hope you have a happy life!
Can you spy her?
This is at Lodi Lake, just a short walk from my house...
I made this drop early this morning, about 7:30am, I zipped in on my Vespa, found a spot, snapped some pictures and zipped right back out again! There were already people at the lake setting up for their summer picnics and bbq's. I'm sure that as I write this (just before noon), she's already been found.
Gosh, I hope they like her... she is a sweet little thing!
Have a great weekend folks!
