MY LITTLE FLOCK IS GROWING

I DON'T KNOW WHY I HADN'T COLLECTED
OLD PUTZ SHEEP UNTIL NOW BUT I BOUGHT
MY FIRST ONE AT 
A GATHERING ON THE PRAIRIE ANTIQUE SHOW
IN NOVEMBER WHEN I WENT WITH TINA TO
HELP HER SELL HER CHRISTMAS BOOK. 
I TEND TO LIKE UNEVEN NUMBERS AND SO 
ONE WAS OK, BUT THEN I BOUGHT THE SMALLEST
ONE AND THEN OF COURSE I NEEDED ONE MORE
TO GET BACK TO MY UNEVEN NUMBER!
I DOUBT I WILL EVER HAVE AS MANY AS
SOME COLLECT (AHEM, MISS TINA) BUT I SURE
AM GLAD I HAVE THESE THREE FOR NOW. I
PLAN TO LEAVE THEM OUT YEAR ROUND.

WE WOKE UP TO -4 THIS MORNING.
BRRR, IT'S STILL COLD OUT BUT NO WIND
SO NOT SO BAD. I AM SNUG INSIDE HAPPILY
WORKING ON MY NEW UPDATE ITEMS. I
FINISHED  3 THINGS YESTERDAY AND HAVE
STARTED ANOTHER. OH, I'M SO EXCITED ABOUT
MY LINEN & BROWN THEME AND HOW THINGS
ARE TURNING OUT. I HOPE YOU WILL LIKE THEM
TOO! I HOPE TO DO AN UPDATE IN ABOUT 2
WEEKS SO PLEASE STOP BY FOR MORE INFO LATER.

UNTIL NEXT TIME....LORI

Hi Lori!
The sheep are so endearing and I have wanted to collect some as well, but they go so fast! Three is a good number and they are so well matched....perfect!!
I'm happy you are having fun creating and are snug and warm!! I can still remember those chilly temps......BRRRR!!!
Take care and happy creating!!!
EXTRA WARM HUGS~~

Odd numbers just seem more appealing, easier on the eyes I think! These are most lovely! Looking forward to seeing your update soon!

I love your sheep, Lori. There is something about them that I have always been drawn to but so far, I haven't collected any of my own. You may have inspired me to get started :)
Glad you are staying warm and cozy...can't wait to see your updates!

I have one little sheep like this. I love them. I rarely see them in the shops though.

Angie Berry said...

Oh how adorable! Yes, there's just something about those odd numbers... me too.

Goodness that's so very cold! Definitely a day to stay in where it's warm.

Have a delightful day~

Love your collection of sheep!! I have a small collection, too. Just love them!! The ones I see in the antique stores are really quite pricey -- I got most of mine on ebay. Some aren't in the greatest of shape, but I love them still!!

Stay warm..... we have very chilly temps here in NJ, too (in the teens)!! Brrrrrrr.......

Love the sheep and I hope you add to the flock soon! I really like mine and usually put them away after Christmas but I've decided to leave mine out, too.
Hugs :)

I love sheep and I love these Putz.
I'd like to start collecting them,
I'll be looking more carefully now.
Of course you should leave them out all year.

Your flock is wonderful. The mind and eye like odd numbers in decorating. Isn't that a funny fact. But, it's true. -4 is way tooooo cooold. I wouldn't even get out of bed. Keep warm. -Steph-
