I have lately noticed some lovely countryside animals from Wrendale Designs. The hedgehog is so sweet, I couldn't resist the card and the pitcher made by Royal Worcester. I'm happy to add them to my collection!
The little fellow at the top left is wearing a Welsh dragon on his chest. He is from the town of Beaumaris, Wales, where King Edward I built one of his many castles. Next to him is a felt hedgehog purse, complete with the obligatory apple. In the lower corner is a hand-sewn hedgehog ornament, which might end up on the Christmas tree. The hotel magazine cover features a hedgehog with an artistically interpreted set of quills. Inside the magazine is an article urging people to create hedgehog-friendly environments to help preserve the population.
