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!
