I'm Totally Nuts For Wendy B.'s Squirrels

At the risk of sounding like a total nutter I have a confession to make: I have an aversion to squirrels. Thank my overprotective father for instilling this irrational fear in me as a child; whenever one would come within 25 feet, dear ol' dad would quickly grab me and warn that if the little bugger attacked I’d end up in the emergency room getting to know the business end of a 12” needle.

Growing up in the ‘burbs of the Garden State there were plenty of squirrels scurrying about their daily business of doing whatever it is squirrels do, so this scenario was repeated with great frequency. To this day I have a minor freak out whenever I see one.

Why am I telling you this long-winded tale?

Because I’ve had a psychological breakthrough and I have jewelry designer and blogger Wendy B to thank.

She’s created the cutest squirrel pendant in response to the popularity of her acorn necklace and I may need to get one to finally show my neurosis who's boss.

I ask you: how can such an adorable little creature in 18K gold or sterling silver be so bad? I think even dad would approve.

OMG - that's a great story...it's funny the things that we let get to us. I actually knew another person who was so afraid of cats she would literally begin to shake at the mere mention of one.

I'm glad I've helped you with a psychological breakthrough :-)
By the way, the gold one is 18K making him even more lovable. And I've done the acorn in silver too, if you prefer to stick to flora rather than fauna.

Ha! I had a similar experience growing up - SOMEBODY convinced me that overly curious squirrels were denizens of rabies. Good thing we've got Wendy to help us overcome our squirrely fears!

Love this! Great find.
We don't have squirrels here so they are just cute cuddly little creatures to me.

Great site... you must be on the computer for HOURS everyday - all in the name of the reader, right?! I'm not sure whether I should pass it on to my wife or not. I'm always on the lookout for more good ideas to add to my new collections!
