Farewell to Teddy Bears
Sometimes it is easier to clean and organize when you are alone in your home—-or maybe it is because there is no-one to reminisce about the objects and get side-tracked. While Toby and Dora listen attentively, they do not offer verbal opinions….perhaps that is a good thing.
One of the closets had a large basket full of stuffed toys. Dusty! I had save them for grand-children—who seem to be more interested in playing outside than with stuffed critters—and it is time to dispose of them.
I’ve worked in a resale shop—-some of the items have never seen soap—I decided to wash these stuffies. Everyone came out smelling nice—except—-this poor yellow bear.
I cleaned all of this out—poor bear—he looked fine until his bath.
But then I made these two from my sister-in-law’s wedding dress remnants.
She has two grand-daughters; I sent some spools of ribbon—I am just not a good bow tie-er—thought about going to a florist shop and begging for assistance—but then thought the bows would be better tied closer to their final destination.
Sweet husband delivered them last week—to oohs and aahs—
And I still have all those other stuffies to deliver—somewhere.
Oh, those wedding dress remnant bears are wonderful! What a nice heirloom for the girls. And poor teddy – and poor you having to clean that mess out of your washing machine!
