sheeps wool angels

 

  

I've been meaning to share these with you for a while. Aren't they beautiful? I have a good friend who owns a tiny store here in town where she sells Bunzlauer ceramics. A few years back, at Christmas time, she also had these little angels hanging all around her store. I was so smitten! She told me that she had discovered a woman in Poland who raised her own sheep, and used some of their wool to make these little angels. She harvested the wool, died it different colors, made some of it into felt for the clothing and wings, and then used wiry hair and miniscule dried flowers for the details. I collected them yearly, until this last year when my friend told me the woman had stopped making them. I hope she will start again. I think they are just beautiful, and I admire the love and details that went into each and every one. I wonder about the woman, what she looks like, what her farm and sheep look like...what made her decide one day to make little angels. 

I hope you are all enjoying your weekend. Kiki fell ill the day before yesterday, so she is taking medicine and sleeping alot. (Right now she is napping with my husband on the couch.) Please send little prayers that she will be healthy and happy again soon...
