Office squirrel

We had a visitor today at the Enchanted Doll head quarters.


I fed it once a few weeks ago, when it somehow ended up on the balcony, and now it comes back several times a day, waiting for almonds. Today it showed up and pressed its little paws on the glass with an unmistakable sense of entitlement, wanting to come in. So, I let him in to the studio. Because who can resist a face like that?


He got comfortable there pretty quickly and hung out with us while we fed him things and eventually had to return to work after taking, like, a million pictures.  It was weird having a wild animal run around and climb stuff while you’re trying to work. It ended with him peeing on the floor and me locking him out. He refused to leave, curling up on the balcony for a while.

He’ll be back tomorrow. I think I’ll name him and then put him on the Enchanted Doll payroll.

    Next thing you know, he’ll be followed by a dozen more of his woodland friends who’ll make themselves busy tidying your studio and beading your next gown while you sing a merry tune! :p

  12. Julia says:

    wow! what a big squirrel! and black!

    Fair warning, they do expect regular feedings. My father started feeding squirrels at his house and now they may be taking over. :-) We go to a feed store and get uncooked peanuts in the shell.

  14. I don’t know Marina don’t you find they both look like accomplice together.They both have black hair and are both twitching messages to one another……hum you need to get them checked out…..Na I guess I just envy them…..:(

  15. OK OK its me. I sent the squirrel in there, hoping to get more information on the resin line. You know what he told me, that something BIG was going to happen. I don’t know if he was talking about the BIG NUTS or what ever he was just so overwhelmed that you finaly let him in. Im sending him back, be kind and talk to him…..loll

    He is so cute and friendly…just keep the Cixi gown somewhere safe, in case he decided to look for a comfortable and chic place to take a nap after his lunch! ;)

  19. Karolina says:

  20. Kimmi says:

    Wow, this made me laugh so hard. Just adorable. I spy a doll over there in the corner! Hehe :)

    Marina, I know you hear this all the time but your hair is so beautiful. How do you get it so long? Do you just never cut it?

  21. MollyTheWanderer says:

    He’s super cute ^_^. However, squirrels are dirty and carry diseases. So be careful, cause I dont want you to get sick. Seriously.

  22. Ilona says:

    Almost like a chinchilla! :)

    Wow, the squirrels in Canada are much prettier than in the UK but they’re all equally cute.
