Every weekend, when I do a whip around the flat with the duster and hoover, there are certain bits I enjoy cleaning more than others. These three little animals I bought at the African Toyshop in Joburg a few years back are inevitably a place to pause while dusting.
Actually, there are little animal clusters all over the house. Some are fairly fancy and collectable, and others are finer examples of the kind of moulded, painted plastic toys made for kids. Here are a couple more favourites:
The rest of the beasties in this post are critters-in-waiting that really ought to come and live with us once we clear some shelf space. For now, they’re sitting in my Aw, Kitties (& other critters) Pinterest board, alongside other expressions of extreme animally adorableness.
And while I save up for those beauties, I’ll just keep making temporary friends from misshapen apples, drawing pins and the like 🙂
