Wordless Wednesday: Where I Wanna Be

Live a life filled with love, following the example of Christ. He loved us and offered himself as a sacrifice for us, a pleasing aroma to God.  ~ Ephesians 5:2


Toy Society Drop

Rudy the Rectangle is a quick crochet toy that I made for the Toy Society. Love this cute, little pattern at
I used some stash cotton yarn and a size G hook. Quick, easy, and cute!
Mr. Rectangle was last seen patiently awaiting a playmate to retrieve him and take him home. He's at a pretty, little red shrub near the parking lot at Garden Acres Park in Longmont, CO.  I hope by now there is a child who is having fun with this little toy.

You are the light of the world.  ~~~Matthew 5:14a

I'm thinking that one's advanced age certainly has an effect on the number of emboldened experiences!

Like newborn babies, crave pure spiritual milk, so that by it you may grow up in your salvation, now that you have tasted that the Lord is good.  - 1 Peter 2:2-3


Dogs on Thursday

Lovely Miss Lailah lounges on her pillow/toy. She loves to do battle by dragging it around and fighting it! When she tires of it, she simply lies on it to relax. Note her frog-legs position--so funny!

With their words, the godless destroy their friends, but knowledge will rescue the righteous. ~ Proverbs 11:9


The Toy Society

The following statement is from
"About The Toy Society

The Toy Society spreads the love throughout the streets of the world. Nothing to it really just a bunch of handmade toys looking for a nice home.What started as a small street art project in Australia is slowly spreading around the world.Should you come across a member of The Toy Society on your travels collect them up and take them home with you! But don't forget to let us know about it here."

Scrappy Snake was dropped at a park to wait for a playmate to find him. He is crocheted from scrap yarn.

Three bunnies were knit with worsted weight yarn. This bunny is waiting in the gazebo at City Park.

Belonging to "The Toy Society" is a true blessing! I made my very first drops yesterday and felt sooo stealth. Like no one would see a gray-haired lady of some girth with her beautiful Boxer bouncing around on the end of a leash!! I did wear sun glasses, after all. I quite enjoyed the entire experience after a few tense moments when a police car was behind me. Did someone notice that I was driving to the parks? Did they note the plastic bags I left behind? Am I appearing suspicious rather than my imagined stealth? The officer’s right hand turn solved all of that, but there was that lady getting her mail. Was she watching me? Ah, the thrill of it all! Most importantly, I hope there are four children enjoying three bunnies and a scrappy snake who were waiting to be discovered.
My first drop was at a large park where I left a Bunny to ride the bouncy animal. I still haven't quite decided what that animal is! A squirrel? The final drop was to leave the last Bunny on the climbing wall at a park on the other side of town.
A truly wise person uses few words; a person with understanding is even-tempered. ~ Proverbs 17:27
