Oh did you think I meant the other Nutcracker? The one with the dancing mice? Nope this is about nut-cracking squirrels. Is this the cutest rodent that you have ever seen? I was so excited when a little family of squirrels moved into my yard. They are silly, playful and apparently enjoy using the stuffing from my patio cushions to make their nests. All of a sudden they were much less attractive.
As you know I love to thrift shop and I would love to tell you that I found this at Goodwill but I found it at Target. I happened to notice it from afar and it scampered right into my cart. Imagine that. I think I can identify with those cute little furry monsters. I love to collect things (Yes, The Goodwill Gal will comment below on my tiny hoarding tendency), and my brain seems to be a little squirrel-like!!!
The lamp, cake plate and the glass dome are all from thrift stores, so don’t dispair. I am still thrift hunting/hoarding/donating/re-buying. I had to take a little hiatus from blogging but I hope to be back in the mix. Right in time for the holidays!!
I just saw a red squirrel nutcracker at Anthropologie…. you know what that means.
