Creatures Great and Small

There are several birds and woodland creatures that inhabit our home. They are made of various metals, or wood, or clay. My husband has been kind enough not to complain about the fact that they somehow continue to multiply, slowly but surely.

We also have the live variety outdoors that visit

And there’s always the live variety lying around inside

and getting fur on everything.

I can’t get enough of them–real and fake. Friends and family know this about me. I have been known to toss food to birds in parking lots and at restaurants. My husband has accepted it. I can’t help it. I brake for squirrels and will gladly feed them at my back door

This past Christmas a family member kindly gifted each of us in the family with money. It was just the right amount for me to bring home a few more creatures during Anthropologie’s home sale.

Squirrel, welcome the gaggle.

I can’t begin to tell you the joy it brings me that creatures in a multitude of mediums and forms have flooded the design world. I hope the trend never goes away!
