On March 5 2015
Norwood left us.
He left just how he lived life. 
All or nothing.
Like a shooting star⭐️
A Norstar.

As a tribute to Norwood and his zest for life, I knitted Norstar knit bombs⭐️ and sent a few out to friends and family to tie on a tree along their favorite trail or walkies path. 

Our friends from Five Sibes said it best, Norwood would love looking down to see his stars all over the world. It's the best way that I can think of to honor him.

Tula was the first to hang her Norstar. No place better than the backyard chomp zone.

Norwood would do a triple spin move then zoomie back and forth to beat the jaws of the bear. 
He loved it. 

Our friend Tammy hung her Norstar along a favorite running trail in New Hampshire where he can listen to the bull frogs sing. He's definitely in his happy place.

I've had several of our pals ask if they can buy one. 

In Norwood's memory, I'd be more than happy to send you one. Here's what you need to do:

1. In the comments, mention you would like a Norstar.

2. Email me your mailing address to International pals are welcome too. 

3. Donate $10 to my soon to be new baby boy Baby Seager's rescue,  Animal Rescue Front. Go to and find the donate page. If you prefer to donate to your fav local charity, that's fine too. It's voluntary and honor system. 

4. Wherever you hang your Norstar, please share on twitter, Instagram, Google+ or Facebook and hashtag it #Norstar #livenutty or tag me. 

I'd love to share all the places he now shines over.

  17. Hi there...I know the anniversay of Norwood becoming a Norstar is just next weekend and I am hoping you still have some norstars left. I made the donation today and if you are able to mail out the star the first of the week, Sophie, the Frenchman, and I would love to hang it on the trail in the Beartooth Mountains in Montana on the anniversary of his shooting star over the Bridge next weekend. I will email our address to you also. Cheers! Marianne (filbertsheep)
