HOME.

P1019301

My husband wrestled this intact acorn branch from one of the local squirrels.

Okay, well not really but he did scare Mr. Squirrel away so that he could get an idea of what it was that he had. I saw him from the kitchen window while I was washing the dinner dishes. It looked so odd, this squirrel with this giant (ok not so giant) green blob of a thing.

Ok, so I didn't have my glasses on. I told Joe, Go out there and see what that squirrel has.Joe brought this cute little branch in and said HEY, this would be a good photo prop!

My guy, he's always thinkin'!

Anyway, this little bracelet is a nice little reminder of home. It reminds me of my tree and house lined street. The Squirrels that live in the neighborhood. The way each little house sits all pretty in a row, each complimenting the next. I love being at home. I love my house. And I'm thankful for it every day.

  3. I love this post! I can just see your husband and the squirrel getting in a tussel over this cool prop. The thought made me giggle.
    There's nothing like feeling contentment in your own home, is there.
    Love the bracelet - maybe you could do one similar, only with acorn beads? :)

    Oh how I wish you had taken a pic of Joe chasin that squirrel !! The bracelet is wonderful and so is the acorn branch. I was lucky enough to spot some of those awesome Tim Holtz clasps while I was out shopping. My you are one clever little bead queen.

  10. That branch does make a great prop although I feel kinda sorry for the squirrel who had his acorn prize stolen LOL! It also makes me wish that we had oak trees and squirrels here. Well, we have squirrels, but they live in the ground.

  11. That's so cool that he wrestled a squirrel for you. Ok, well maybe he didn't wrestle it. The bracelet is sweet and makes me think of a log cabin I lived in as a kid.

  12. Your husband is very thoughtful. Your bracelet is in a sense quasi-squirrel.
    Squirrels are hoarders, I'm surprised he gave it up and there wasn't a struggle, man against beast. Or in this case, man against rodent.
    As a child we saved a litter of squirrels. When they were old enough to release, they would always come back to visit us when we were outside.

    Hi L. It's Mel Mel AGAIN. I forgot to mention how much I love the rings you created from ring blanks. I picked some of those up on clearance. Could you please do a ring tutorial on your blog. (Just an idea, i'll understand if it's your little secret.) Sorry, I hope it's ok that I called you L.

  14. What a gorgeous branch of acorns! Great photo and beautiful bracelet, too! I can't believe Joe thought of that branch as a prop for you right away. He went right out there and got it for you. He is such a thoughtful guy, always thinking of you! So sweet. A keeper for sure, huh :)
