{Toy Society drops}

*blush*
I was supposed to chronicle the drops we did here on my blog!
Duh!! o_O

This is the "gang" ~ all ready to go and find their forever homes!


You've heard of a partridge in a pear tree?
Well, this is a penguin in a palm tree! :)


Okay, seriously. Here are the details (I'm really trying to behave, here ~ and it ain't easy!)

Dropped: @ Frank Brown Park, Panama City Beach, FL (hanging on a palm tree right outside of the children's playground area)

Number of toys: Just one!

Dropped by: Me, Mara (15) and her BF, Austin (15)


My "Secret Squirrels" said that as soon as they dropped her,
a sweet little one came racing up to claim her and give her a forever home!


Dropped: @ Frank Brown Park, Panama City Beach, FL (near a bench you can't see inside the children's playground area)

Number of toys: Just one!

Dropped by: Me, Mara (15) and her BF, Austin (15)


Froggy wonders if anyone will find her and make her "It!"
She just LOVES Hide 'n' Seek! :)


Dropped: @ Frank Brown Park, Panama City Beach, FL (inside one of those play tunnel thingies inside the children's playground area)

Number of toys: Just one!

Dropped by: Me, Mara (15) and her BF, Austin (15)


Froggy's guarding the brochures! :)

Dropped: @ Panama City Beach Library, Panama City Beach, FL (this is the brochures rack just inside the doorway)

Number of toys: Just one!

Dropped by: Me, Mara (15) and her BF, Austin (15)


Lucky the Lamb! :)

Dropped: @ Panama City Beach Library, Panama City Beach, FL (Austin was so clever ~ he placed her right by a book titled "Lucky!")

Number of toys: Just one!

Dropped by: Me, Mara (15) and her BF, Austin (15)


Mr Penguin's playing Hide 'n' Seek! :)

Dropped: @ Panama City Beach Library, Panama City Beach, FL (Mr. Penguin's hiding by the play table)

Number of toys: Just one!

Dropped by: Me, Mara (15) and her BF, Austin (15)


Mr Penguin's just hangin' around! :)

Dropped: @ Panama City Beach K-Mart, Panama City Beach, FL (Mr. Penguin's waiting for some sweet person to find him in the cart corral)

Number of toys: Just one!

Dropped by: Me, Mara (15) and her BF, Austin (15)


So, those are the drops we did. A wonderful time was had by all ~ especially the softies who were absolutely sure that they'd find forever homes in a jiffy! We know that Miss Piggy found a forever home quickly, but don't quite know about the others ~ if you or someone you know found them a forever home, could you let us know? Miss Piggy has two sisters, Ms. Froggy has one sister and a brother, and the Penguin brothers each have sisters who would very much like to know that their kin is happy and snug in some child's (or a big grown up kinda child) bed for the night. It's getting awfully cold here in the Panhandle.

The neatest thing about all of this was not only seeing the delight on two teenage faces (and let's face it: "delight" and "teens" are two words that aren't always found in the average sentence) at playing "Secret Squirrels" (boy, I love that phrase! How's about that Moroccan Mole?!) ~ but also seeing the surprised-but-delighted reactions of those we told about the Toy Society! I wouldn't be at all surprised if you saw a few more people from our neck of the woods dropping off softies for the Toy Society!

The hardest thing about the Toy Society drops? Waiting to see if someone's picked them up!! Oh well ... while I wait, I can always make MORE softies!! :)

Sew-y craft-y hugs to you all!!

Well done on the drop. You are a wonderfully generous lady, to all those kids and to us quilters/crafters. I love your designs. Thank you for your generosity.

@ sew sane: Spoken like someone who sniped a bid against a *friend* when she said she wouldn't.

What else would anyone expect?! ;)

Better to be "crazy" than dishonest.

What a wonderful thing to do. Spreading joy in our so over-stressed and fearful society.
I love them all!
