My Flock

I have a thing for sheep. Quirky, unusual, yet lovable sheep. They can’t be too big. They can’t have faces that are too human. And it’s most fun if I buy them on vacation. Here is my flock. Do you love it? It’s so big I’m going to have to expand to another shelf (the big blue on on the bottom left has already begun the migration). I have a silver money sheep from China (I did not bring that one back myself unfortunately!), a cranberry colored sheep I bought on Hilton Head, a cool one that looks like it’s made out of spaghetti that I bought in Montreal, the most amazing sheep with a face made out of a crossword puzzle from Vancouver, a great one with its head tipped from Maine, one with pink ears from Hawaii and many, many more. There are sheep made of lace, clay, cotton, paper mache, bristles, real wool and much more.

My latest addition is the fab pink sheep in the front right. My friend Melanie McMinn, felter extraordinaire made this for me in New Zealand. Check out her Etsy store. She makes all sorts of amazing, gorgeous felted creations, real works of art. I’m so happy to have one of her pieces in my collection!

    Yes I love it! I do have a sheep ornament with a santa hat that I brought back from New Zealand. We need to see more…maybe some close-ups! πŸ˜€

    P.S. I finally got my snowflake post up! πŸ™‚

    My mom has a flock of sheep too that sits in a nook at the top of the stairs! Hers have come from the US mostly, but a couple are from Ireland and Scotland (that I bought for her while studying abroad). What a cute idea!

    I’m glad you like your new pink sheep. I had a lot of fun making her.

    I don’t know anyone else who collects them. Very cool!
