Animal Kingdom

It all started out with this little guy:

I thought it was cute, simple and it just seemed to fit with the scheme of my bedroom.  Have you noticed you start noticing how prevalent certain things are once you find interest in it?  After buying my first decorative pet, I started amassing more and more.  It got to the point where I had to put out a moratorium on my decorative pet collecting but each time I saw a new one, I would have that conversation with myself "Can I have it?  Please?  I promise I'll take good care of it!  I'll dust it everyday!  I have a name for it already?"

Here are some of my favourites:
Poodle from Urban Barn
Puffin!  Former display prop from Aritzia
Pillows made by me!!!!!! Trays from Ikea
Dante the bulldog - I got him in Hong Kong
Chip the Chipmunk - a gift from my lovely boyfriend
Danny the Dachshund - from HomeSense

And ,yes, I like dogs.  I really, really like dogs.
