I was checking my shops just now and found a wonderful artist on Etsy's front page. Fairyfolk has hand felted acorns that would look so good on a Thanksgiving table. Unfortunately, with the holidays coming and the imminent arrival of "The Mother-In-Law" (cue screaming horses), my budget for hyacinths to feed my soul is nonexistent. This afternoon I'll go out and collect some of the 3 tons of acorns in the yard (lots of acorns = hard winter?) We had a bumper crop last year too and the winter was way colder than usual. There's not supposed to be ice in the ditches when you're 2 miles from the Gulf of Mexico. I'm just saying.
Anyway, go have a look-see at Fairyfolk's shop and prepare to be charmed! I'm going outside to count acorns.
