I know...you're starting to think that ole Eartha is the one that's nuts but stick with me. A while back, I found this guy down in Franklin, Tennessee.
A little squirrel made from black walnuts with a little chenille tail and legs. Eee! He's even mounted onto his own little stump.
Then today, I found this little skunk in the form of an ashtray stand. Also black walnuts!
I have to admit that if I had time to sit around and craft things out of nuts, I totally would. Like crazy. But I get it honest. The other night, I was going through some old family photos when I came across this old one of my great grandmother and her brother.
For the life of me, I can't read what the plaque says - something about keeping keys safe, I'm sure. I know that plaque went the way of a thrift store at least twenty years ago and I've already about made myself batty doing Google, eBay and Etsy searches. If anyone comes across one of these babies, please let me know. I'd at least like to know what the plaque says. I'm sure it's something terribly witty. A nut limerick or such.
Until next time,
x's and o's,
