The Shad

This past weekend our town closed down its streets to celebrate ShadFest – A festival in honor of the shad (a type of local fish) and their migration upstream.

I found inspiration for my newest shop addition from the guest of honor:

I am very much in love with how these little guys turned out – The pop of color on their scales is fun and I think their overall look captures the sunny feel of ShadFest.

These fishies are a limited edition – I have only made four of them.

I love that your town has a festival in celebration of these fish!!! how wonderful!!! good luck with them, they are very special!

  2. Am catching up on my blog reading as I sit outside soaking up some vitamin D…

    I LOVE THE FELT SHADS! They’re so cute they rival the birds a bit. Hope you got to get down with some Shad Fest, I went a few years ago and had a blast.
