Anyway....in all of the celebratory hoopla yesterday, I completely forgot about Squirrel Appreciation Day! This is a major misstep on my part because as some of you may know, I LIVE for squirrels. Live ones. Fake ones. I don't care. I love me some squirrels. I always celebrate the holiday and can't remember when I haven't. So today, I thought that I'd rectify the situation by walking around the house and photographing the newest squirrel related items in my collection. Here goes:
These first two were birthday presents from my friend Joan:
I had seen different versions of these measuring spoons (mostly a cute little chicken) but never the squirrel and definitely not one devoted to Tennessee exclusively. I don't use these but keep them up hella high on the kitchen shelves because one of my kitties is fixated on eating his little eyes off.
This spoon rest is from my friend Allen. Look at the glorious eyelashes on that girl!
I heart her too much to let her hold gloomy spoons so she just hangs out and classes up the joint.
You can tell by the way that I cut their feet off when taking the photo that they make me a little nervous. I think it's their expressions.
