Normally, my Saturday Squirrel posts feature real pictures I took of real squirrels who happen to inhabit my neighborhood. There are times, though, that call for breaking the rules… and this is one of those times. I stumbled across the cute little guy you see above while perusing the interwebs yesterday. That is the absolute cutest squirrel figurine I have ever seen, and there is no way I could resist featuring it for this week’s Saturday Squirrel!
The official name of this piece is “Squirrel, Crystal Copper”, and is a part of the Swarovski Crystal collection. It is a recent issue that can be found for sale on the internet at anywhere from $70 to $100. As much as I am completely smitten with this piece, that is just a tad out of my price range….
I have to admit, when I pass through some store with a crystal figurine collection, I do eye the case for a potential squirrel hidden somewhere amongst the hundreds of unicorns, dolphins, and kittycats. While I have never found one, even if I did, it could not possibly touch Copper up there! I love how the facets of the crystal give the illusion that he is smiling…. that can’t be seen from any of the overhead angles of the squirrel I found…
Well, there you go. We’ll get back to the squirrels in the wild next week. Until then, make sure to get another eyeful of this sparkly beauty! If you weren’t already smiling this morning, you most certainly have to be now!
Enjoy your weekend!
