As I was wandering Pier 1 Imports the other day I decided I MUST have the "Love Bird" salt and pepper shakers. They were too adorable to pass up.
Luckily I was convinced not to buy the cow creamer (since I don't drink cream) and the elephant teapot (since I forget to drink tea) but they were both very close to joining my birds at home.
West Elm just informed me this morning that they have some figurines I might enjoy...and yes, maybe I would like some elephant book ends to fill the void of my teapot.
And since I am a sucker for anything shiny, even a
creepy cute little squirrel caught my attention.
This little perched paper mache bird is calling for my credit card number ($10 + shipping) but I think I'll try to make it myself and add it to the collection of everything else I've started but haven't finished yet.
I've had a thing for owls lately and I think it's because they seem retro to me. Were owls big in the 60's or 70's?
Z Gallerie is another store with great little "thinnngs" to fill your shelves with like this clear glass octopus...
...Or a pair of white pheasants, although they don't really do it for me. I'm still stuck on the owl or elephant thing.
And I have to say, even though I like these little guys, I will NEVER let them take over the house!
