The little piggy...

This little piggy wanted to go on a journey. He said he wanted to go to New York in time for Valentine's Day. He dressed in his bright pink finery and prepared for his journey to be part of The Toy Society (drop #944).

Auntie Nettie & I left the little piggy on a bench on the High Line, with a nice view of the Hudson River to the West and Hogs & Heifers to the East.
But, he didn't get to rest there for long because a young lady spotted him and put him in her nice, warm bag to enjoy a new home. Here she is walking away...

I hope we get to hear from this little piggy some day.

Celebrating the Cherry Blossoms

We enjoyed dropping this little doll off at the Brooklyn Botanical Garden during their Cherry Blossom Festival. I thought the dress was appropriate. (Toy Society drop #262)

Polly (now Carousella) found!

Hi, we found Polly on Sunday. We were the last family to leave the carousel. Polly was renamed Carousella by her new friend, my 4-year old daughter Arte. They now spend lots of time together, they're sisters. Carousella now lives in Morningside and has just gone off with her big sister to ballet class.Thank you for the bundle of joy!

Polly enjoys the sunny day

I delivered Polly to Central Park today. She was left at the Carousel, with a nice view. I'm hoping that she was picked up before the brief shower we had. There were lots of kids around, but, as usual, there was a lot of looking the other way.

A new craft site

I've been sucked in by a new craft site on The crafts editors have a new blog called where they share their activities, expertise and new ideas. I've been trying to upload the video for how to make the sock animals, but no such luck...

Valentine's Day toy drop

Today, I made my first drop for The Toy Society (drop #37). I hope it will make someone's day.

I left the little bear outside the Rowayton Library / Community Center. Usually, it's buzzing with kids, but today it was pretty quiet, since it was a holiday and the library was closed.
