I made some more faux taxidermy plaques - for some reason I find making these guys so fun and delightful! There's always a story that slowly evolves in my head as I'm painting and gluing.

This is Bella. She loves the color pink and being a pretty pretty girl. She felt a bit fancy today so she put on a super cute mini tutu and her prize gem.











And this guy is Jimbo who escaped from the circus to see the world....with both pairs of trunks (haha, lame joke I know). He couldn't leave behind his signature polka dot trunks though, they make him feel like a star.









I'd love to hear what you think! Or more ideas for future critters I could dress up  Cheesy

These are delightful! That really put a smile on my face this morning!
While the painting is a wonderful way to add a bit of colour and character, I think the embellishments really make them stand out!

MoonlitSun - No these are actually reclaimed plastic toys that I've painted and otherwise altered.

They are wonderful and whimsical and I love them! It would also be really need if you painted their plaque's in a co-ordinating colour! Keep it up. They're very fun!
