HAPPY HEDGEHOGS!

Here's something you didn't know-I love, love, love hedgehogs and porcupines! Now I can't exactly remember when I became enamoured of them, but it's been at least 10 years or more. I can't even tell you what I love about them. It's just a quirky little thing about me. Okay, you guys, no comments about my quirkiness!!!
Here are a few rubber stamps I have:
I may be a grandmother, but I still like stuffed animals, esp. if they're porkies or hedgies. I look in every toy store I pass, in zoos, gift shops and the like. I've bought my collection all over the world as I have travelled.
Here's a shelf in my "craft/sewing" room with some of the smaller one, including Miss Tiggiewinkle from Peter Rabbit fame --you'll have to click on it to enlarge enough to see them.


Here are a few more stuffed hedgies in my bedroom. Aren't they cute, just smiling at ya!

Can you tell I live in a fantasy world? ha, ha. I hope you all have a great Memorial Day weekend and get some rest, eat good food, and enjoy friends and family. God bless America and all our troops serving this holiday. Luv, Nerm

How cute! The first time I saw one of these little guys was in France. You don't see them here in Cali, so it was amazing to see one in real life. My husband once brought back a tiny little ceramic one from one of his business trips to Europe. I love to put it in weird parts of the house where you would least expect it to be. You sure do have quite a collection there! Very Cute.

Miss Tiggwinkle (sp) was one of my favorite stories as a kid. I loved how she ironed the clothes and ran off.

Thanks for sharing....nope...no weirdness whatsoever! I love to know about peoples quirks!

Thats what makes us all so interesting!

Did you know the hedgehog is the lacemaker's mascot? I guess the pins on the bobbin lacer's lace pillow are reminiscent of the hedgehog, hence, the mascot thing. I think it's funny. Hedgehogs are cute.

LOL! Oh, LOOK Nerm! I found your Hedgehog post! And LOOK...I already commented when you originally posted it! You need a Hedgehog tatting shuttle to go with your collection, LOL! Just kidding! :)
