Lately we’ve been noticing a trend with our shopping habits. We have both been gravitating towards “animal decor.”
Bridget scored this $5 flying fish at New Uses as well.
You gotta love the drift wood base. With hints of natural blues mixed throughout, this cutie was practically flying off the shelves.
Because he is a flying fish, Bridget & Matt call him Midway (a shout-out to the airport that Matt grew up next to… get it?) If you’re going to buy decorative animals, you gotta give ’em a name as you welcome them into your home… right?
Check out Midway’s new digs. I love that he adds hints of the coast without being too “beach-y”. Although he’s one-of-a-kind, he does have some competition swimming around Casey’s shelves.
Casey & Finn nicknamed him Whale (pronounced WAH-lay…like the rapper. Apparently they’ve got gangsta style going down in the Lou)
Side Note: Bridget actually spotted these exact same lovebirds at the New Uses in Aurora! You never know what kind of decor people will bring into the store. They may still be there if you want to go snatch them up!
These birds may be salt and pepper shakers, but they seem very happy perched atop these books.
From flying fish to smooching lovebirds, we have quite the arrangement of animals making their way into our homes lately. These little creatures seem to add a pop of color, lots of charming character, and always come with the best stories. We hope that you can channel your inner animal-lover and keep your eyes peeled for a little critter to call your own.
