The stripes. Those furry ears. And it had the sweetest eyes.

How c-u-t-e!

At my university job, I was put in charge of tidying up the back office space earlier in the week.

One of my tasks was to consolidate last year's lost-and-found collection. A lot of it will be weeded out and discarded and the rest hopefully donated.

Among the earmuffs and scarves and jackets, was this little guy.....

A sky blue pillow with a plush tiger sewn in!

I couldn't risk it getting thrown away so I took it home and washed it for my own.

But then I remembered one of the managers at the crafts store I also work at had a baby boy just before the start of the new year. So I ended up giving the pillow to her so she could give it to her son.

And least now the pillow has a life again in a new home.

Hooray for happy endings!

That's the best kind of recycling.

A cute pillow. too nice to let go to waste. I was happy to read this post since just this morning I was working on a tiger cover. It was a sign that is what I should be drawing. Thinking of you.

How very sweet of you! Both in saving it the first time and then passing on the cutie to someone who will love it very much.

That was so kind of you to do for your co-worker's baby.

I know your tiger cover is going to be awesome!





Bear Mark!

Yeah, I thought this way the pillow could be put to good use and make another child happy.






I appreciate that, Mr. Tuxedo.


Thanks to everyone for chiming in here!
