Back when I was in California, my sister Meredith saw a photo of some vintage putz sheep I had seen in a shop and fell in love. One day, I drove back to the shop and bought 4 of them. She gave me one (thank you!) and I sent the other 3 to her. Then I fashioned a hat for my little guy and Mer said she would also like some hats. This morning I made some for her little flock.
We picked out the scrapbook paper yesterday and I brought along the flowers.
Gosh darn it, this little one is a cutie! Making these little hats is very fiddly work and getting them to stay on their heads is a whole other challenge. I’m afraid to move them now. But they can’t stay out here in the kitchen. Their home will be in the glass case with Dinah.
I removed part of yesterday’s post for two reasons. My beloved parents sometimes read this blog and I don’t want to upset them. And…I feel I have been too negative lately. My worries are real, don’t get me wrong, but my blog is predominantly cheerful and I want to keep it that way. Thank you so much for your wonderful, supportive comments. As always, they warm my heart.
Let’s close with a little critter who hangs around my sister’s property.
He was moving fast and hard to capture on film. It was my first encounter with an armadillo – what strange, almost prehistoric creatures they are! This morning he was in the bushes. This little guy gets around.
Well, I have to go. It is almost time for Max to bark at the Pool Monster.
