GUILTY PLEASURES

AAA HAAAAA...............
I bet you thought I was going to say Chocolate!!!
WEEEELLLLLL NO it is SHEEP!!!
I don't now why but those adorable little German sheep just touch my heart!  I especially like those with broken legs and faces that no one else would want! :)  They are so sweet!
Here are some of the flock...



The sizes vary from 5" on down.  As I understand it these little guys were created for children to play with.  Some of them came in sets along with a sheep dog and Shepard.  
I started collecting these in the 80's when I got one in an antique shop in Los Aptos CA.  I think that is the name of the place, it is Near Monterey.  We were there for 2 GREAT years!!  ANYWAY  the first little one that I bought was just $4.00!  It could barely stand up and it looked as if it was used as a Christmas Tree ornament.  After that I was hooked and have been ever since.  For years I didn't see them and then E-Bay came along.  That is where I have gotten a lot of them.  That's a great place to look if you are looking for some for your flock!

I do have to admit that Chocolate and what Southern Girl would not love Coka Cola and Sweet Tea are  some of my other guilty pleasures!!  

What are your guilty pleasures?  What ever they are I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!
Have a Great Happy Spring!

You've got all my guilty pleasures covered.Drooling over your putz collection although I do have a nice collection myself my flock is up to about a dozen with 2 shepherds.Yes Sweet Tea is my daily addiction although living in the north now up to a few years ago people looked at me like I was nuts when I asked for it,now it's commonplace.Of course I always have a hidden stash of Dove caramel chocolates.Warm Blessings!~Amy
