A squirrel and some nuts!

I found these sweet sachets in JackRabbit's shop on Etsy and couldn't resist buying one. I love watching the squirrels gather and stash acorns and all kinds of nuts right now.

These adorable mini acorn pillows have a variety of uses. They are all one of a kind and handmade from fabric remnants and vintage lace.

Use as a pincushion while sewing your latest creations or spray with your favorite perfume or room spray and place in a linen or underwear draw to keep things smelling sweet. Each pillow is 3 x 3.5 inches and has a vintage lace loop for hanging.

Doesn't that sachet go perfectly with my Squirrel Acorn necklace? This necklace began with a shiny brass squirrel piece that I added patina to, and attached to a chain with three freshwater pearl acorns. The pearls are a lime yellowish green.
