Flea Market Finds...

I have been reading about some great Flea Market Finds over at the lovely blog Her Library Adventures for a little while now and thought I might play along.

I recently came across this little gem while vising my parents for lunch. Of course I had to drop into the op shop which just happened to be on the way (I could not resist).

After a short time poking around I decided to check on my poor husband who happened to be along for the ride and there sitting right next to him was this little beauty:

Just what every home needs, a Squirrel shaped nut cracker set. I have not seen such a kitsch and slightly daggy item in a long time. I had to have it :)

The squirrel holds all the utensils you could need to crack open nuts including a nut cracker vice built into the wooden removable tail and a tray to hold all the unopened nuts. Now I just need to go buy some nuts to fill it up.

  1. I love it. It is funny how you sometimes fall in love with the weirdest things but still must have them. I completely understand.

  2. I love it and I agree... every house should have one!!!

  3. Very kitschy, but super-cute!

  4. i couldn't stop laughing from the time you said what it was ... i thought it was just a kitschy decorative item. fantastic find.
