Sheep. Ah yes, my sweet obsession.
what is it? why do i love thee so?
Its a piece in the puzzle.
The treasure hunt of my life.
The distinct by hazey memory of a life lived
in a Swedish Farmhouse
or handstitched art farm
with family and history
where all flock together
in peace
no matter fur , wool or feather.

say hello to the rest of the flock

anyone else? please join us!

I am sorry that my sheep has strayed from the artsy flock...give me a day or two...
Being that my name Rachel means Ewe, I have always had a fondness for the gentle creatures myself.
I love your sheep boy! To sit under those trees with a lamb in my lamb would be bliss.

You love sheep. And I bet, the best sort of sheep love you back.

Great post - love sheep, but sadly my only sheep are stuffed or ceramic - my horses (and my husband) won't have the real thing!!!

Dear Stephanie,
just today I sort my hundreds of paper chips ...and I've found a photo of a 'Carl-Larsson-House'. Its my very favorite house...dream will come true...maybe in the 'next' life.

Back to the flock: I love loooove your sheep scenery. You've painted a very peaceful atmosphere...and your words...I can hear your voice. Wonderful. And Blossom...sweet soul.

xoxo Ariane

I'd like to walk in that field of dreams. I imagine I might learn mindfulness in those colours. Accompanied by a sheep or two. I need more animals in my life. And the home of Carl and his talented wife Karin Larsson is beautiful. It's been ages since I've been there, you make me want to make an excursion to Sundborn. Thanks for the idea. And thanks for the theme. Sheep always suits a picture :)

Lovely Ladies...Thank you from my wooly little heart. I believe the themes are overlapping and that we are connected in some wild and wonderful way.
