Feeling Sheepish Today


This is the newest addition to my flock.
He came home with me yesterday from
a day of treasure hunting with my sister.
Today I've been trying to decide where
my new lamb will live.
Most of the space here is already occupied.



These two cast iron banks sit on a window sill.


These are the salt and pepper shakers on my kitchen table.


More window-sill perchers in the kitchen.


This lovely lady was a gift from my daughter
and resides on the bookcase.


Even the bathroom is inhabited.


This fellow is the sentry just outside my back door.


I don't limit myself to just figurines.


I couldn't resist this picture of a sheep wearing a sweater.
I'll bet it's hand knitted.


This is another favorite, also a gift from my daughter.
It "bobbles" when you touch him.
He holds court over my computer.

So, you can see why the new guy
might have a problem finding a place to abide.

This week I'm linking with
Wow Us Wednesday at Savvy Southern Style
Open House Party Thursday at No Minimalist Here

What an adorable collection of sheep! I love the sheep wearing the sweater. Whenever we pass a field of sheep, I call out, "Look! Baby sweaters!" and my children all roll their eyes and groan. :o)

You have a lovely collection of sheep! You should see mine... :)Sometimes when young children come to my house for the first time and comment on all the lambs, I'll set them to counting them. It keeps them busy for awhile! lol
