A Little Squirrely...

I thought I would share another one of my collections with you. These little critters reside in my upstairs hallway in a clock that my dad made. It's my squirrel and nut collection....

The large acorn birdhouse came from the local prison store that is filled with wonderful handmade wood products. The fabric acorn came from Ebay many years ago. The two squirrels on the tree are actually salt and pepper shakers and were a goodwill find. And the little tiny squirrel was from my miniature collection as a little girl.
This huge ceramic acorn was another goodwill find. I'm sure it was some homemade ceramic 70's project, but I just couldn't pass it up, even though the colors are a bit harsh. And the little grass squirrel is from a Fair Trade party.
This ceramic squirrel is from target or walmart(don't remember which one). Two more fabric acorns and another set of salt and pepper shakers from goodwill. The little acorns in all the pics are from pottery barn.

So there you have another one of my quirky collections.

Have a terrific day,


  1. I love your collection!! I really like the acorn birdhouse!

  2. I love your collection and I love how you have it displayed..:) have a "nutty" kind of day.:)

  3. I just realized that your started a new blog. Your old one hadn't been updated for awhile but I thought I would check it out and saw that you moved.

    I am so happy to see you back blogging and a big Congratulations for the new we little on the way. You sure are one busy mommy :)

    I LOVE your clock but also what a cute collection. I remember my grandmother making similar things when I was little. CUTE :)

  4. First of all, I love your clock! And your collection of squirrels & acorns is so cute! I love acorns too and have a few.
    Have a great weekend!

  5. I may be starting my own collection. First I found a pair of acorn salt and pepper shakers at GW for Thanksgiving. Then I found a fun squirrel at a craft fair and then another acorn and squirrel combo. I have 3, does that mean I now have a collection? Have a good day.
