This is another collection that came about by accident. What is it about woodland creatures? Why are they so prevalent in vintage? Not that I'm complaining. I love squirrels. I used to wish that squirrels lived in my yard when I was a kid. Now some do, and I love it!
This little weather prophet squirrel looks vintage, but I bought it in a gift shop in Cave City, Kentucky on our anniversary trip two years ago. I have a hunch that this gift shop is selling stuff that it has had for the last 40 years. Or I like to imagine there are still companies out there making things out of walnuts and pipe cleaners.
These little squirrel salt and pepper shakers are missing the tree they should hang on, but they are still so sweet! I couldn't resist them when I saw them at the flea market. The lady who sold them to me said she was hoping someone would think they were as sweet as she did.
This plastic squirrel and pinecone set are from Santa's Land in Cherokee, North Carolina. Another example of a gift shop full of stuff they have had hanging around for year. I love that.
