The Toy Society

Last week, I read a post on Coloradolady's Blog about The Toy Society. I joined the Society right away. I made a handmade toy from a free pattern I found at their site, and now I will leave it on the streets for someone to find. They have other patterns on the website if you don't have any ideas of your own. My finished toy is a Scottie Dog, and I created him in the traditional black, with embellishments that I had at home here.

It could not be said any better, so in words borrowed from Coloradolady's posting, "In a world of such uncertainty and so much turmoil, you just never know how finding something unexpected can give you a bit of hope and encouragement at just the right time. A simple toy, and an idea has changed and brought comfort to so many lives. But don't take my word for it, see for yourself. Click HERE and then if your are still not sold on this idea, click HERE and if you are not looking for a tissue by then, well....I really hope you happen upon a toy one day on the streets to help soften your heart. This is a wonderful idea, and I am so happy to be a part of giving out hope and comfort."

You did a fantastic job on your little scottie dog! I have looked the toy society over and I'm still not sure how it works. I know that someone like you would make something and leave it somewhere for someone to find but I don't really understand the rest. I think I'm just having one of my gray hair moments! lol I would like to do this but I'm not sure what I will be able to make. I'm also thinking about trying to keep some kind of food items in my car for when I run upon people along the side of the road who have those signs that they are hungry. I really don't see that many here in WV but they are at certain places at times.
