Marwood Bags

It's hard to believe it's been a year already since we did the Christmas bags for the nursing home. Because the weather was so bad today, Ken and I did them up, I didn't want anyone out in this.
But we did it, and here are 40 bags ready for delivery tomorrow morning, with little stuffed Teddy's peeking out!  I know it seems odd, (the bears) but the residents really love to receive them.

It doesn't seem odd, anyone would like to receive one of these bags with a dear teddy bear peeking out.

You are such a kind soul Laurie. So lovely that you all do this. Merry Christmas my friend. :c)

Be safe out there. I hear weather is horrid. Flights canceled such a mess for traveling folks at Christmas!
I am betting the old folks love to see your sweet face come through that door!
Merry Christmas sweet lady!

Weather was crappy last night and snowy today. I really missed helping with the bags. Will look forward to next year :)

What a nice gesture. I'm sure that those dear people will so appreciate your efforts.

What a spirit of giving.

Merry Christmas.

I love how you do this and a Teddy Bear does not seem odd at all. It takes many of us back to our childhood which is full of peace and feeling safe again. Merry Christmas sweet heart and tell Wendy I said same to her as well. Hugs, Pearl

Such a beautiful idea! And who doesn't need a new stuffed bear to love and tell your secrets too? Adorable!
Wishing you peace, health and happiness my friend!
