Never Too Sheepish


One can never get too sheepish or woolly. In fact, if it is out of the ordinary it is even more interesting. I always look out for things that you do not find thousands of in a department store.

Life is simply too short to not come up with all sorts of excuses to buy sheeps in any handsome outcome.

The things in the photo are not impossible to get hold of.

The needle felted pendant is made of Nancy, and you can find her shop on Etsy here.

She makes tiny critters to wear - and they are so cute that you just need to take them with you.

The cookie cutter was actually available before christmas where I live - I just could not resist...

And then there is the sheepish needle gauge from Karens Etsy shop.

Sent her an email through her shop - she is very popular. She also has cats, hearts and a lot of other goodies for knitters. She even make the gauge in the norwegian metric system. How about that?


And then the cup. I found this guy in a shop in Ireland - they only had one left. I fill him up with coffee and just enjoy every sip.

Things should not matter too much, I think. But I am willing to make an exception. Or two. Or three.

What things makes you happy? And what kind of excuse do you use to buy it?

  1. Den nålefiltede sauen var utrolig livaktig og skjønn! Det er klart man ikke kan gå fra hverken den eller koppen eller pinnemåleren.

    Jeg liker vakre, søte, rare ting som "snakker" til meg, men kjøper egentlig ikke så ofte nye gjenstander. Nå stod plutselig noe nålefiltet på ønskelista! :)

  5. Very sweet sheep things! All very practical, too! I mean who doesn't need more jewelry, mugs or knitting measuring thingies?

    Beads are my weakness...I just tell my husband that they were a "steal" and he says "great". But I think he knows, lol. True love for sure!

    Hugs from New York!
