nuts on lawndale

"... but Nutkin was excessively impertinent in all his manners..."

i love squirrels.  i think they are whimsical little creatures. they are wily and rude and happy. i've always loved them. they've always made me laugh. squirrel nutkin was always my favorite beatrix potter book. and my grandma & i spent a great deal of time over the last few years of her life watching them out the window.

the squirrels at work are my favorite. they can often be seen with a whole bagel or mini challah climbing a tree. you haven't lived until you've seen a squirrel with a bagel.

so, i have a bit of a squirrel collection*...

and now thanks to my mother, the piece de resistance! an actual squirrel, in all its grotesque yet adorable glory. i thought nothing could top the custom made squirrel curster. ha! little did i know!

*please note, my squirrel collection is complete. it fills the shelf nicely. i don't want this to be like mom's owl collection. or my almost owl collection.
