Kelli, that little wool hedgehog is my favorite of your collection. I would love to hear how your hedgehog collecting started at some point ~ have a wonderful weekend!

Jodi said...

Oh my goodness! What a cute collection! I can see why you like hedgehogs!

Heidi Pocketbook said...

Wait until I tell my 11 yo dd about your collection! She received a Webkinz hedgehog for her birthday last month-and she's a big Sonic the Hedgehog fan.

My favorite one that you showed is the Jan Brett. It's so cute!

Happy Show & Tell Friday!

That little wool hedgehog is one of the cutest things I've ever seen!

Huskerbabe said...

I love your collection. Some of my favorite rubber stamps are the hedgehogs from Penny Black!
When we lived in England you could buy crisps (aka potato chips) that were hedgehog flavored. Guess I really wasn't all that curious about what they tasted like. LOL But I do think they're cute!

Carrie said...

What a charming collection your hedghogs make.

Kathy said...

Love your little Webkinz and wool hedgehogs, Kelly. When my daughter was a little girl her favorite book was about a hedgehog. Just seeing yours brings back wonderful memories of my little girl snuggled up on my lap reading with me!

Gattina said...

You are the first person I know with a hedgehog collection and they are really cute ! I collect cats as you may know, my friends, owls, elephants, chicken etc. but not one collects hedgehogs !

Dianne said...

You do have a cute collection of hedgehogs!

Anita said...

Ooooh yes, how cute indeed! I especially like the hedgehog snowman!

I still remember one romantic summer night some years ago. I was already dark outside but still pretty warm. J and me were sitting on one garden bench in front of the kitchen window when we suddenly spotted something running along our garden fence! It was a little hedgehog! ;-))

Have a great Friday my friend, take care!

XoX, Anita

Your hedgehogs are so cute- and a unique thing to collect- I like them! I have a cute little hedgehog that my husband carved for me out of wood- he is about an inch long- and so cute.


Have a great weekend!

Zebu said...

Kelli,

You are so inspiring. Thank you for sharing your lovely work with us. :)

playsdolls said...

Your collection of Hedgehogs is so cute.

. said...

Very nice they are. As for me, it's not so much hedgehogs I like, I prefer robins, ducks and hens.
I wish I had such beautiful pieces with my favorite animals as you have with hedgehogs.

Heather said...

Kelli,

I am so glad that you liked your hedgehog card! I LOVE your collection. I will have to share pictures of my collection soon.

I especially want a real hedgehog! ;o)

If you liked Hedgie's Surprise, you will like The Hat by Jan Brett. It is another Hedgie story and it was inspired by her pet hedgehog Buffy.

Love, Heather

Judy said...

Very cute...I never thought of a hedgehog as being cute until now.

Princess Of Pink said...

Cute collection you have, Kelli.
Come check out MY special stuff this week

Leigh said...

I love those too Kelli! I used to have a hedgehog, Griff. He was the cutest little guy. He was so gentle...when we petted him he laid down his quils to noone would get poked. Great little guy.....

Smilingsal said...

And, the avalanche of hedgehogs has begun. DUCK!

Heather said...

I love your Hedgie collection - so fun! Our son used to have a pair of overalls with a big hedgie on the front - I think he was three at the time! I didn't know hedgies were popular until he wore those and got all kinds of comments. We gave them away long ago, otherwise I'd send them on to you for your collection! They would be perfect on a big soft teddy bear! Our sweet girl also got the Hedgehog for Christmas and she named her Holly.

Prairiegirl said...

I am new to Show and Tell Friday. My mom, Lisa (akawest), said this is fun, so I joined.

Your hedgehogs are cute. They are one of my favorite animals. I love all animals except Warthogs.

LadySnow said...

I love the hedgehog card. It is absolutely adorable. I will have to look for that stamp (I am assuming it was a stamp). I love Jan Brett books...they are so much fun to read.

Belinda said...

I love hedgehogs too...aren't they just so cute?! I only have one little felted wool hedgie, but I loved seeing your collection, and now I want more of them too! :-)

Mrs. Staggs said...

I like your hedgehog things. When my nephew was a boy, he had a pet hedgehog. It was a charming creature, but very shy.

Hedgies are a fun collection. I've always found them fun to look at in the petstores. :)

Sylvia Goode Basham said...

One of my daughter's favorite books when she was little (she's 21 now) was called "Hedgehog Bakes a Cake." I think it was her favorite because it had a recipe for cake in it, so we would make it and of course eat the batter in the process :-)

gracy said...

Adorable! When I was little, we had a book called "A Porcupine Named Fluffy", and I read that book hundreds of times. I don't know if we still have it... It's one I will want someday when I have my own house & kids. :) Thanx for sharing!

A Hint of Home said...

All your hedgehogs are so cute. You've got quite a collection going there.

tchrmom said...

My German mil saw hedgehogs everywhere and played with them when she was a girl. Can't find them here, but I found it interesting that you collect them now. I love Jan Brett's website; she even has murals! Very cute, thanks for sharing.

Connie said...

Well, I have no idea what happened. I signed up on Mr. Linky for this week's show and tell, and somehow it didn't get through! Neither did my comment on your collection of hedgehogs. Weird.

I love your little hedgehog collection. They're adorable, and almost make me want to start collecting them!!

Thanks for sharing, I'll try sharing my Show and Tell next week - cause I can't seem to add it now.

Joy said...

What a cute hedgehog collection you have!

Deb said...

I never knew that there were so many hedgehog collectables!! You have quite a collection going! I enjoyed seeing all your neat hedgies! have a wonderful weekend!

Julie said...

I think it would be cool to have hedgehogs here. I love them too - but have no collection. Just one little pot clinger.

Farrah said...

Lol! Now this is the first time I've head of a hedgehog collection! You just keep surprising me with new little tidbits about yourself! :-)

I just realized I didn't add my link this week. I'll add now.
