On their way...

What do you do with...
1 braying donkey...
an old howling dog...
 
a yowling scraggly cat...
and a skinny old rooster?
Stack them up...
...to support each other...
...and send them off to seek their fame and fortune!!

Wow, your pictures of the trees and other plants are amazing, such a beauty! And the "Bremer Stadtmusikanten" (that´s how they´re called here in Germany) are gorgeous, you´re so talented! In Bremen you can find a statue of them and the people use to touch and rub the feet of the donkey and make a wish at the same time and they believe the wish comes true. I love visiting your blog it´s really special! I´m sorry that my english isn´t the best anymore, but I hope you could understand my comment. Nice Greetings from Germany!

i used to love that story as a child, my grandma had a book of it with the most wonderful illustrations. I do love your characters too, especially the mule

How sweet! I love your little felt critters. What a wonderful idea to make the little animals in the fairytale.
Here is a link to an interesting article by someone who read the Grimm fable as a child...

Kerry, they are so beautiful - each and every animal! You are the best!!

The Grimm Brother made such wonderful fairy tales. I'm so pleased to see how they inspired you to make such a lovely "pyramid of animals"

Thanks, for all your wonderful comments on my blog....and enjoy tour weekend!

Many hugs,
