I love anything Ralph Lauren. Love all of his equestrian, masculine and cottage styles. So sometimes I browse the RL catalog to get inspiration. I saw this little dog nutcracker that made my heart skip a few beats - when I saw the price tag, $150! Then I remembered the little squirrel nutcracker I bought this fall at GW. $2.52 (Is my GW the only one that puts a number at the end of the price tag with the same as the first?) Of course, I like the dog better but my little squirrel is cute too. Whatcha think?
My mom always put out mixed nuts during the holidays. Dad and I would sit around cracking them and eating them in silence. Sort of a "bonding time" thing. Fond memories. Now I like to put them out at my house and my kids love to crack them too. A little holiday tradition.
