Mossy Cow Pie Steel Shot Weights

She was surrounded daily by priceless art and artifacts, and yet the windowless room was isolating, sterile. She longed to at least know the weather and sometimes daydreamed about gazing out a window onto a wintery Oklahoma landscape: rolling hills, red, red earth, and emerald moss sprouting from fertile cow pies.

These shot weights bring a bit of nature's beauty indoors. Needle-felted wool, polyester batting, steel shot, vegetable tanned leather.
