Some Of My Favorite Things

I'm sitting up tonight with Boo, who's not had a great day. Getting old ain't for sissies. I need to work on some Christmas gifts anyway, so it all works out.

Still, it's been kind of a sad day so I decided to take and share some pictures of a few of my favorite sheep ornaments (this is not the time to do a new sheep count! ;-). I really enjoy putting up my Christmas tree each year. Each ornament, even the few non-sheep ones, is an old friend.



This silly sheep always makes me smile.



Is that Brushy and the neighbor kid sitting on that sheep's back?



Brushy again, and this time with Claire Bear behind him doing a little sledding. The tiny gray swatch was from when my sister-in-law Jan Baby was teaching me to knit a few years ago.



Brushy and the neighbor kid again? I love the expression on the cat's face (click to biggify).



A friend brought the large round painted ornament back from a trip to Germany and the small painted gourd was done by a well known Harrison County artist, Sally Cammack.



I love this wooden sheep and peaking out behind is a crocheted (I think) snowflake made by the talented Jan Baby.



Well, I'd better get back to work or there won't be any brown paper packages tied up with string under my tree.

It's like having all the animals in the manger on your tree!

I love the knitted sheep and the gourd one is just great! Love your sheep tree.

How is BO? I have grown to love him, just from your posts. Please let me know. My prayers are with him! I'm sure the kitty is having a hard time too. I wish there was a way to help animals, because they can't really speak to us.

I hope Boo is doing better. So hard to watch them grow older. But they are cherished and loved and that is a blessing in this world. Take care of yourself. Love the tree.

You have so many beautiful sheep ornaments! I haven't collected any sheep ornaments since getting the Shetlands, but have a couple blown glass ones from before. LOTS of horse ornamets, although I didn't put most of them on our smaller tree this year.
