Feelin' a Bit Squirrelly!

Gray Squirrel~

Gray Squirrel, Gray Squirrel
Swish your bushy tail
Gray Squirrel, Gray Squirrel
Swish your bushy tail

Wrinkle up your funny nose
Put a nut between your toes

Gray Squirrel, Gray Squirrel
Swish your bushy tail!

Whisky frisky
Hippity hop
Up he goes
To the tree top.

Whirly Twirly
Round and round
Down he scampers
to the ground.

Curly furly
What a tail
Tall as a feather
Broad as a sail

Where's his supper?
In the shell.
Snappity Crackity
Out it fell.

Just a fun little post today to let you know that I'm way ready for Spring! Saw this little vintage Squirrel Planter at the thrift last week and couldn't pass it up.
What a fun addition to any baby's room. Use in the traditional way, or have fun with it and use it for q-tips, ointments, lotions... What a fun baby shower gift...maybe add the ointments and creams and even a stuffed squirrel!

Glass Gives my Tummy the Warm and Fuzzies

Sweet Fenton Milk Glass Slipper and Kitty...

I LOVE this double sided vase! The colors are fantastic in pink and green with gold trim. This really did make my tummy do flips!

Listen, you know you are getting old when your idea of a fun evening is to sit and look thru Gene Florence's Books on Fire King and Kitchen Glassware. I can hardly wait, and Im not kidding!

I went to a thrift shop last night and found some really cool bowls in 3 different Fire King Patterns, and Im anxious to identify them. Keep watching my etsy shop, they will be listed for sale soon!

The Birds are Finally Back!!

So wonderful to get up this morning and hear the birds singing! Its a sure sign that even though we are still looking out upon piles of un-melted, dirty, nasty snow that Spring is right around the corner. I must say, I am more than ready.
Ive been busy listing some of the pretty little birds I just got from a thrift shop bonanza!
This little mama and baby Blue Bird is from Japan!
A different and more muted little Blue Bird has soft and pastel colors!

Another mother and child only these are Blue Jays!

A little yellow canary by a tree stump all trimmed up in gold!
So! If you are all ready for spring, like I am. Visit my etsy shop and choose a bird to bring in your home to wait with you!

Ricky IN
Lucy ON

Possum BY

This past Christmas my son, Jeff was home on leave from the Navy. He is currently stationed in Japan, so it was wonderful to have him around. Loved that he stayed with us or nearly two weeks! One morning he complained there was cat hair on his black shoes... I was highly offended, as the cats had NOT been on his shoes and I let him know in certain terms that I had not seen the cats anywhere near them...

As the days went on, I spyed each of my 3 cats on , in or by his black shoes.

I thought it was funny...Jeff didn't!
