I Love Ewe. 3-D sheep wearing a red heart. The backdrop features a smiling farmer, a mule smoking a pipe, a sheep wearing a top hat and drinkng a Guiness, frolicking pigs, and lounging pigs. A sticker on the bottom reads Shannon Distribution LTD, Gifts from Ireland, Dublin 1. Jen is setting up snowglobe acquisition franchises. Unfortunately her sister's addition to the collection (the infamous "squatting leprechaun") was unceremoniously sent to an early grave by Sister Wendy's production assistants.
Jen R. has been instrumental in facilitating snowglobe donations. Her first donation-by-proxy in 1998 was from a sister's trip to Ireland, the infamous "squatting leprechaun" snowglobe, which met its demise in an accidental leap from its perch on a desk.
This globe from 2000, a gift from Jen's parents, addresses that untimely loss. Note the beer-drinking farm animals in the background. Ireland is the most-represented non-North American country in the collection with four globes.
