Thrift Report: Animal Magnetism

Hello friends!  Today, I'm showcasing some thrifted finds from the last few months with an animal theme...

A pair of ceramic elephant candlesticks, made in Japan, ca. 1960s. Don't you love the colors?

Bronze-toned horse head mounted on a marble base. I think he's rather stately...

A charming little white ceramic giraffe planter. Perfect for a nursery.

Ever since I spotted this photo over at Pink Wallpaper, I've been a smidge obsessed with finding those brass unicorn bookends...

...and I finally found them! 

They are utterly ENORMOUS and weigh close to 11 lbs. Each.

I've sold these speckled peacocks from California Originals Pottery before in my shop, but I'm always excited to find them. So elegant.

That's it for this week! I hope everyone found lots of treasures of their own.

The End. :)
