Found Squirrels: Memory Squirrels

Oh man, how excited was I to discover this particular set of squirrels? We played Memory: Animal Families during Thanksgiving weekend at our friend E's house. Never mind that the instructions say for children ages 3 to 6 and that every single one of us is more than four times that maximum age.

I was very upset when B ended up matching the squirrel mommy and squirrel baby and adding them to his stack. And in fact I lost miserably at Memory: Animal Families, but ended up rocking it when we played the original Memory later.

Found Squirrels: Decorative Squirrel Figure

Found this little treasure in the same thrift store as the cross-stitch. I suspect that someone with rodent-loving tendencies like me has recently passed away, because this particular establishment seemed to have quite a few squirrel-themed items.

It makes me kind of happy to think that someday all of my squirrel stuff will go to a thrift store somewhere and some young lover of squirrels will freak out with joy when she sees all the awesomeness I've collected over the years. They better price my cool squirrel stuff at higher than $6, though!

Found Squirrels: Squirrel Ornament

Oh Christmas squirrel, oh Christmas squirrel! Your tail is always fuzzy!

Found in a fancy knick knack store in New Jersey. I think my new cellphone with its fancy, fancy camera is really going to revolutionize the way I blog.

Found Squirrels: Cross Stitch Squirrel

Found at a thrift store in New Jersey. Seriously considered bringing it home, but was easily distracted by a Squirrel Nutkin sticker book.

For the winter.

I am very proud! This is my first project using stranded colorwork and I think it turned out beautifully.

Now I will be warm all winter like the fat and fuzzy little squirrels I'm seeing in the parks these days.
