Rowdy's Graduation


Little Rowdy is growing so fast... and now he has graduated into the world of Big Sheep!


Things were a little rough at first, but now under the watchful eye of his momma, Baby, he has made some new friends, and everybody's getting along great.




He even leads an occasional game of follow the leader!



Although it's easy to get lost in the madness of feeding time, he has learned to just get the heck out of the way and he won't get trampled.



Time out for a drink, then back with the rest of the gang for another romp around the manger.



Ummm, Molly?
Please don't chew on the camera strap....




I have been doing a little shopping... my dear friend Mare at Moon & Stars Studio has just opened up an ETSY shop and has some wonderful things for sale... I saw these gorgeous earrings and just had to have them! (And they are even more beautiful in person!)



And to show you what a awesome artist she is, look at the watercolor painting she did of our broody banty hen, The Little Terrorist! It is so beautiful!



I can't believe how much it resembles the real thing.... isn't it amazing?



Mare is so wonderful and talented- she makes jewelry, dolls, and knits, along with her beautiful paintings. Thank you so much, Mare!

Happy Wednesday, everybody!

  21. Love the pictures of Rowdy. I just love the sheepies! And I love those earrings! I will be checking out the Esty shop. I love fish hook earrings. Working where I have to dress like an adult gives me the excuse I need to buy loads of new jewelry. Awesome!

  31. Hey Paula, I've missed you and your little farm! It's been crazy around here and my blogging neglected. This seems to be the pattern here in the last year. Not enough hours in the day.

  33. Rowdy rocks! I want to scratch his ears. Molly just wanted a chance to use the camera. How's a girl going to find her talent if she's never allowed to explore?

    LOVE LOVE LOVE that watercolor of the Terrorist. Awesome. Your friend is extremely talented. I'm going to pop over and check out her shop now.
