Stack 'Em Up


Celebrate fresh starts and new plans with an embroidered version of the Brothers Grimm fairy tale of the Bremen Town Musicians. A band of aging animals, whose owners no longer have any use for them, escape and set off together to become musicians in Bremen. On the way they come across a house full of robbers and pile up to sing for their supper. But the robbers are frightened away by their singing (oops!), and the animals settle happily into the house, never to reach their destination. This classic story has inspired a whole series of stacked animal designs.

A Loyal Breed

Bred in the Scottish highlands to hunt and protect the farm, Scottish terriers have been around at least since the 1400s, as far as we can tell. Scotties are short-legged, sturdily built dogs known for being intelligent, loving, and more than a bit stubborn. This one is fully dressed in Scotland's best, wearing a tam o' shanter in a classic argyle pattern, derived from the tartan of a clan in the county of Argyll.


Available in three sizes:
5.80"X5.80" and 4.80"X4.80" and 3.86"X3.86"
