New Editions to My Menagerie

Happy Wednesday, Hanna here.  I have been officially off work since Saturday but have had no motivation due to the terrible, rainy weather.  I have managed to pick up a few new friends, but I am going to apologize now for the photos.  The weather is so gloomy that there is no hope to picture my new beautiful animal friends as they deserve.

First, I was eyeing this elephant at Goodwill for a while but it was over priced.  I was convinced it would be gone by the time half price came around, but oh no, I got lucky.  My made in Japan friend now has two other elephant friends to party with.
 Doesn't he look happy with his Goodwill friends?

The other planter I have been coveting was super overpriced too.  I'm just lucky the girl that works at my Goodwill likes me so much because when she saw the price of it she decided it was ridiculous and gave it to me for the same price as the elephant planter!

I have one other planter that I've pictured in the past that color coordinates with the roadrunner really well.  I swear my bird collection is getting insanely out of control.  I claim my excuse is that I was a fisheries and wildlife major in college, but I think it is pushing it at this point.  But you know what?  I'm a bird nerd and proud of it!

I also picked up these made in Japan bird shakers.  I love their little Mohawks.  They match my Pyrex quite well also.  You may have noticed the pretty tablecloth in the various pictures.  I would love to share my 3 new tablecloths from Sister thanks to her visit to Farm Chicks but I want to picture them a little better.  I should also mention that day one using one of them my husband burst a blueberry on one of them and it is now being soaked for its 8th time in my utility sink.  I think he feared for his life when he saw my face after the explosion.  He may be finally learning :)

I also have a whole lot of goodies from my last visit to Sister, but I will save those beauties for later.  Lots going on in my personal life as I had mentioned before and I can't wait to share.  Sister said it sounded like I was hinting at a baby, but I will tell you that's not the case (to Sister's dismay.)  But things are going to be changing soon.  Can't wait to share.

Until Next Time!


  1. Ha! A baby is what I thought too! Can't wait to hear what the news is. I love birds, but I used to have this crazy boss that hated them! And she would say they are nothing but "rats with wings"! Can you believe that?? LOL
    I still love anything with a bird on it though!
    Great finds-
    Erica :)

  2. Very cute finds. I used to have a collection of ceramic elephants when I was growing-up. Can't wait to hear the news.

  3. Damn...I was thinking baby! Happy to hear that things are going well, other than the craptacular weather. We'll trade you. Take our 90 degree nonsense and we'll take your rain!
    Those planters are great! You have such neat collections.
