Thrift store find for all the little critters...

I love to go treasure hunting at the local thrift shops... I also love All God's Creatures... put the two together, and I couldn't be happier!... I found this adorable 50's cookie jar with a precious little squirrel on the front... Pricetag? $1.50! We put food out for the little squirrels (and any other little critters who stop by to visit)... I will use my cute little thrift store find to hold cracked corn and nuts for them inside... (I do believe my squirrels love the shabby, vintage look as much as I do)...

What an adorable little cookie jar. I know the squirrels will love it and the contents. In England we used to feed a little squirrel with one eye that we happily nemed Patch. He was so sweet and ate from our hands, enjoy......

What a fabulous find and the squirrel on the jar is adorable! I'm sure all of the critters are so thankful for the cracked corn and nuts and of course for your love!

Dear Julie Marie,

Oh, I love treasure hunting and I love God's creatures, too! So wonderful that you found such a sweet little squirrel jar! I love the idea of keeping cracked corn and nuts inside for your sweet squirrel friends.

Hello, Julie Marie,
How wonderful that you now have somewhere to store the food for your little animal friends! The cookie jar is so sweet, and I think you got a terrific buy as well. I am going to be on the lookout now for something to store my food for the birds, and yes, sometimes a little squirrel will come for a bite, too. Thanks for stopping by for a visit and have a great week ahead! Vicki

That is just the cutest jar and I'm sure that your squirrels love it too, but not as much as they love you for feeding them. You are so good to the animals. Wish everyone was more like you.

Thanks for your kind words and taking time to read the poem about my gato. And I'm glad to hear you love animals as much as I do.

How cute is that jar! Really lovely.

I hope you have a great week.

Bisous,
Val

The little squirrel jar is really a neat find. The squirrels may not care what it looks like, but they will sure want what is in it.
