I realize having large heavy metal objects in a nursery is probably not a great idea. Not because the baby will bash in someone’s (his own?) skull with them, but um, I’m pretty grumpy lately and a heavy metal object in arm’s reach will probably lead to me in lock-up with a dead husband and a baby being raised by my sister. If she wants him, that is. He might be a terrible little human. I’m only guessing that because of the way he’s kicking my rib (OVER AND OVER AND OVER AGAIN) right now.
BUT! I have started a little bit of a brass animal obsession. It started with these awesome gazelle bookends that I picked up for $30 from eBay.
And then I kind of got to browsing Etsy and, uh, this giraffe is going to be mine! (I mean, his…)
And if I get the giraffe, I kind of need the elephant to go with it, right?
And maybe these elephant bookends will look nice…
Or these guys, because they look less stabby.
Or, how about this camel! (Did you guys know I had kind of a camel obsession as a child? Well, I DID.)
Oh god, and then there’s THESE antelopes in action bookends!
I mean, I’m not working, I’m not in labor, and I have a couple of shelves that seem to need this kind of thing. This is nesting right? That means I’m going to have this baby soon, doesn’t it? PLEASE SAY YES.
