To order call:

 As some of you may know, we have a brother who was killed 10 years ago in Guatemala.  Last summer while we were at a little art festival in Park City, we met a woman who was selling these very unusual and quirky fobs.  Teri fell in love with them and asked the woman about them.  She says that she goes to Guatemala and has established an artisan program for women where she buys these little gems and brings them back to sell for them.  This gives them a safe spot for their craft and an outlet for them to earn much needed money.  We were completely enchanted with them and both of us felt that this would give us a chance to help improve the lives of at least a few women which might make a difference for them and their families living in a difficult time and place.  We definitely wanted the hearts because they are so darling and will make you smile, and then Teri asked if she could ask them to also make sheep for us.  Well, here is our first shipment that she has sent us and I hope that we will be able to commission many more. Scroll down and you will see how fantastic the sheep are.  The perfect keeper for you favorite scissors and making a difference in the life of another woman.  What could be better than that?   (Secretly I am planning to put a heart on a chain and wear it as a necklace.)
