Let me first say how saddened I was to hear of the earthquakes in New Zealand this month. They occurred days after I returned home from a wonderful 14 day cruise around that beautiful country. I do wish everyone in those affected areas all the best Aussie luck I can send Please be safe!
Although my holiday was mainly a cruise, we did stop at six lovely cities and towns so of course, I managed to add to my collection of all things sheep!
This little alpaca caught my eye and he’s the first alpaca in my collection 🙂
And my first brown sheep!
Who could resist that cute face 🙂
Another apron to add to my collection.
I haven’t done any cross stitch for eons so I’m going to have to start so I can complete these cute little bookmarks.
These cute plastic cups couldn’t be left behind!
And of course, I had to add to my sheep mug collection 🙂
This one is quite unusual.
This little quartet of sheep is quite unusual and quite small so it was easy to pack (and buy!)
A rather unusual vinyl holdall with a zip top.
I found these microwave/oven mitts at a market in The Octagon in Dunedin.
Salt and pepper shakers!
A little All Blacks supporter 🙂
I picked up these salt and pepper shakers in a one day sale on board the Sea Princess. They were the only ones there so I literally grabbed them!
Sheep paper serviettes…..who’d have thought!!
As if I need more socks!
More goodies from the market in The Octagon in Dunedin.
I use these hanging hand towels in the kitchen every day!
Lots of souvenirs, some of which I kept and some were given to friends.
I now have a huge collection of sheep tea towels.
I’d love to make some project bags but I’m not the best at sewing.
There was such a huge variety to select from.
This one matches my new apron.
Didn’t I get a great selection?
And this is how I felt after each day’s shopping 🙂
The scary thing is this isn’t all I bought. There are more mugs and bits and pieces which I haven’t gotten around to photographing but the good news is that I’ve just about found a home for everything 🙂
I think I need to ease up on sheep stuff for a while by keeping away from the second hand shops I normally visit.
I wonder how long those good intentions will last 🙂
Until next time…
