The Friday Five: My Menagerie

I recently realized that I have a growing collection of (fake) animals in my house. Right now it seems like everything I have comes in pairs…how very Noah’s Ark, right?

Lions

The Jonathan Adler lion was a congratulatory gift from my sister and brother-in-law. They gave it to me when I completed my Master’s. I have since purchased a matching mini JA lion ornament. My mom found the glass paperweight with the lion etching at a garage sale and she thoughtfully bought it for me (p.s. I’m a Leo).

Birds

I found the sweet little bird at a thrift store and just had to have it. I haven’t found the perfect spot for it yet though. I won the owl pitchers (or vases) over at Greige. They are happy on my bookshelf  – near a pair of owl bookends. (Honestly, I can’t believe how my animal collection has grown!)

Elephants

I bought these pillows (one is an elephant and one is a giraffe) for my parents a while ago at Loblaw Superstore. They didn’t seem to like them as much as I did so the pillows soon became mine.

How about our White Cabana readers? What are your collections made up of?

      Hee hee…um…well…thanks?! For now I’m quite happy with my static porcelain “pets”. But then again, it was kind of fun to have a fish.

    Oh geez, I guess that means that your fish is no longer with us-? I’m sorry to hear that.

    As for my animal collections, I don’t think that I have any. I’ll poke around and double-check but I think I’m animal-free (except for my fluffy white REAL cat ;)).

      Johanne – you have the softest whitest cat I think I’ve ever seen!

      p.s. T2, the fish, passed away over the summer. So sad.
