A Walk on the Wild Side

Oh my goodness, I have been so busy working the estate sales that I have had no time for blogging! I also have a booth at a local antiques mall, and will be selling on Ebay soon. Besides that, there is of course being a mom, wife and cooking dinner,  and planning more flower gardens in the back yard! Not enough time for everything, so I will not be blogging as much and when I do, they will be short. I know, I know, you'll believe that when you see it right?! ;)

So anyway, on with this SHORT post. I know you know I am a Victorian soul and adore all things Victorian, especially taxidermy birds and not just the one's in glass domes. 

So it may come as a surprise to you that I would drag home this guy after one of our sales a couple of weeks ago...




I couldn't just leave him there at the low price of $18! 
So home he came...



where he took his place of honor on the marble shelf...




of the pier mirror...




at the front end of the parlor!

See, I told you it would be short. Thanks so much for visiting today!

  4. Wow you are busy and selling on ebay is a great idea, I for one will be checking your sales. I was thinking of doing the same thing but haven't gotten around to checking out exactly what is involved in doing so.
    Love your find and Michaelangelo seems like a good name for him. He looks renaissance to me.

  12. He is a splendid fellow, Gina, and he looks quite handsome there on your shelf. Spring is a busy time of year and we all understand when one has to blog a little less. We will welcome any posts you have to share when you can. Enjoy your day and Happy May!
