Hedgehog Buddha to the rescue

Sometimes you just have to look at the silly side of life. This is what Alice and I collect:

These shots depict our most recent Mr. Hedgehog – Hero Hedgehog!  We also had Nurse/Chef Hedgehog and an undressed, characterless first hedgehog. Somewhere in-between there was a Farmer Hedgehog. He didn’t survive long enough to be photographed; must have been a period of stress in our lives. Once his denim overalls were “wedgied” he gave up and stuffing was everywhere.

When life becomes overwhelming, we each turn to our talisman. Her’s suffer the wrath of her teeth and to date we have replaced them many times over. I’m currently in the market for a  Buddha Hedgehog…

    • You are on to something here, trashonthemonocacy! I had forgotten about Mrs. Tiggy-winkle the hedgehog washerwoman!! Excellent comment. Come to think of it, I haven’t seen any female characters in the hedgehog toy department…

  1. Oh man…I just returned from Buddha Hedgehog Heaven. I could have found you one easily!! Or maybe not? Are all those Buddhas yours, or do you visit to photograph them?

  2. Very charming! Your use of the word “talisman” makes me think of my own “totem” collection. I have little animal figurines that represent different members of my family. Since we’re spread throughout the country, it’s nice to have them all “with me” in one place. Nice post – will follow.

  3. I guess we all collect something. Like you I seem to collect Buddhas. In fact my youngest granddaughter calls me Nannie with the Buddhas to distinguish me from her other Nannie.

Love to know what you are thinking! And thank you for commenting.
