animals, antiques, ceramics

Hello Whimsies

Look at my little Wade squirrel that I bought online the other day. He’s in his original box and everything, the only other Wade animals I have are wolves and a bambi, these are quite common in antique stores and I have only just recently discovered that there are a lot of different ones out there. I sense a new obsession forming. Oh crap, my poor display cabinet.

    the best display cabinets are always made of steel and glass structure or composite fibers~*;
