Tuesday Display Chain ~ The Squirrel In Me.....

PSSSSSTTTT.....It's back!!!
 The inimitable and ever-so-loverly Misi from 1890 Gable House Musings has resurrected our beloved Tuesday Display Chain for a limited four-week run.

 I was unable to join in last week due to a severe case of Plans Interruptus, but I am tagging along this week.
 The theme this week is inspired by the delightfully charming tree squirrel....and their proclivity to gather nuts for the long, cold, winter.
Misi has asked how we prepare for the upcoming autumn/winter seasons and whether there is something special we do to cope with the cold.

You think, living in the cold, cold, Land of Nod, I'd be an expert on this subject, hey?  Well, in some ways, I guess I am.  I DESPISE the cold and could likely write books about the lengths to which I go to avoid it.
But this is just one blog post, not a book, so you will get a condensed version.

How do I prepare for the Seasons of Cold here in the Land of Everlasting Cold?

Well, while the squirrels are busy gathering up their nuts, I am busy gathering up...


 Anything and everything, wool.

Wool socks to keep my toes warm (yes, crows have toes):

Wool cape to keep my feathers warm and dry:
Woolie mitts to keep my paws warm (well, in case I grow some paws):

Woolie scarf for my neck:

Wool blankies to keep the other parts warm:

Woolie reads to feed my mind:

And a stockpile of pure woolie goodness to feed my soul:

Please check out the other chain gang member's display links at 1890 Gable House Musings and learn about their inner "squirrels."

I think you are very "wool " covered! lol, sorry couldn't resist, beautiful tribute to woolens, we are feeling the nip of frost every night now, we had snow the other day, I have brought out the quilts and woolen throws, and i have my wool socks on RIGHT NOW! I hope you are well and that things are going smoothly for all your family
