I was curious about how many different critters Jim would see in the Smoky Mountains on his backpacking trip, so I Googled “Animals in the Smoky Mountains” and saw a list with close to 500 different animals.
I put together a little welcoming committee to greet him upon his return.
Alas, he said he only saw some bear poop and a salamander. Well, I’m glad he didn’t see any of these…
along the trial.
And in keeping with the Beanie theme, I ran across four little guys on Ebay that I could not help bidding on. The bidding started at $1.50 each so I said “What the heck!”
I was the only bidder and I could NOT believe my luck. When Jim saw them he told me I should be ashamed of myself for stealing these from some poor soul who either made these custom sweaters, or paid handsomely for them back in the Beanie heyday. While I do love a bargain, I thought he was right, so I sent the seller some more moolah for which she was very surprised and grateful.
The pink flamingo is to die for!
That’s my favorite! Zoom in on these guys. The detail is amazing. Each sweater is color coordinated to each beanie and custom fitted. I’m very pleased with my treasures. 🙂
