Newsflash: Husband Goes A Little Nutty

P1010005o

……well, it got your attention now didn’t it? *insert smile here*

My hubby doesn’t get much blog time action, but I do believe that he is quite deserving of some. Let me brag a little about him, if you don’t mind….

My guy is very talented and quite creative…yes he is! He can draw a mean locomotive – and in great detail – on an Etch-A-Sketch. Not only can he draw quite well, but he also can make beautiful jewelry. He isn’t a jewelry maker by trade, although you wouldn’t know it.

Awhile back he found a darling little acorn and decided to cast it and make some sterling silver charms for Christmas presents. Besides the acorns, he also made some teensy tiny pinecone charms, too. Because I love squirrels so much, he knew I would fancy an acorn – and he was right!!

Oh. My. Word. How wonderful! He'll probably need to start taking orders, don't you think?!

Tell the Mr. we are nuts about it, too! (Watch out for the squirrels, they might steal it and go and hide it on you!)

Becky. Becky. Becky. Where have you been all my life? Your blog is amazing and I'm so sad that it has taken me this long to find it. But amazing as your blog is, greater still is the fact you are living your life for Jesus. I wish I would have given you a big hug tonight ... oh no, now I sound stalkerish. How about {if it is Ok with you}, I give you a squeeze the next time I see your beautiful face? I AM NOW A FOLLOWER! XOXO Jules from bles-id :-)

Kathleen Grace said...

I would be "nuts" about that too Becky! Gorgeous!

Elsie said...

How cute Becky , my little squirrel
that lives in my tree in the back
would love that. I will have to tell him about the artificial nuts.
I talk to him all the time and he
does listen except when he knocks
my urn down, which is all the time.
You have a very sweet hubby to make you something so special.

Elizabeth and Gary said...

Hi Becky,
I "love" your silver acorn charm, It's so pretty and was created with so much love.
I bet you were so surprised! such a thoughtful gift and right from the heart! A very special one of a kind gift and made by his two hands, it doesn't get any better than that!
(I can see a new business) for Mr. Sweet Cottage Dreams..whatja think?.
Keep warm! Big hugs XO Elizabeth

Sinta Renee said...

I see that you don't corner the market on talent in your family! That necklace is beautiful!!! I love it:) I love watching squirrels and seeing them play especially... ok, that is more in the spring... and ok, that is more than playing, but you know what I mean! We use to have one that lived on our property that was missing a paw(?) and his tail... but he was quite a survivor and still managed to balance well.

Andrea at Opulent Cottage said...

So precious! We love our squirrels over here, too. We now have two little ones who will eat right out of our hand. Hope you are having a lovely 2011!!
Cheers,
Andrea
