I really love making these little whimsical animals for garlands. They are actually quite small! Several animal garlands have sold in my little shop and I want to restock with some new color schemes very soon. I hope the new owners are delighted by their garlands. How amazing that my little animals have traveled far to their new homes.
I have always wondered what "zakka" meant. According to this book, this word translates from the Japanese to mean something like "miscellaneous goods" or "many things", a "style that embodies a kind of simple charm and uniqueness". Perhaps that is what I've been doing all along!
Have a beautiful weekend.
