This has been a sheep-filled few weeks. I’m not sure when another Blue Dot piece has been so instantly as popular as this wooly creation. Then I received a custom order for these tiny sheep stud earrings to go with the necklace. I love tiny things and am always happy for a reason to make them. The necklace/earring sheep set was to be a gift for a girl who is showing her first lamb this week at their county fair. How exciting!
Which made me realize, alas, it’s been far too long since I’ve been to a county fair. I really love them. I’m allergic to so many animals — sadness — so the fair in a way served as my big summer animal fix. Also, the bigger the animal I hang around the less of a need I felt to take one home. Although the rabbits always captured my heart. I always wanted to take one or five with me. So, here’s to big real animals and tiny silver animals!
