Fake Foul


Okay, confession time.  Antlers remind me of fingernails.  There. Now you know.  And wish you didn't.

The older I get, the more creeped out I am by any kind of taxidermy.  Too many childhood visits to the butcher where your brothers dared you to stand under the huge (long-haired!) bull's head (who-can-stand-there-longest-style)?  Possibly.  Does that mean I'm vegetarian?  Heck no.  There is still a place in my life for meat.  And I still go to that butcher - Best sausage around!  (Though writing that sentence made me a little sick just now.)

While I can appreciate "animal" in home design,  I have a lot of questions that I really don't want the answers to:  Swiffer or vaccuum?  Which attachment?  At some point those hairs/feathers, start shedding, and they go where?

 
I have a friend who thinks donkeys are funny (I think they're just a@#$%. :)  But, I get it now, because lately I really do find that ducks, and geese, kind of adorable.
That goose is hilarious.  If it's not shedding stuff, that is.

Lately, I've been setting aside a lot of time to daydream about the following spaces.  Which has me really pumped to hunt down the perfect the non-shedding, dust-collecting version of one of theses fine, funny, foul.   


D*S

Are you Team Taxidermy or Team Decoy?  Team Donkey or Team Goose?
Love to You!

  2. I always think I like antlers/taxidermy etc and I do in other people’s houses but the thought of having to look at what is essentially the head of a dead deer isn't that appealing in my own home. Decoys, however, are fantastic.
