For some, the thought of ceramic animal figurines, might conjure up thoughts of grandma's cluttered curio cabinet, but when used sparingly, a cute little animal here and there can add whimsy and warmth to mantels and tablescapes. I recently purchased this pair of peacocks from Etsy seller VintageEye, thinking that I might use them in my shop photos, but I think they're a little big for that. So now I'm looking for the right spot to display them, and I went to Flickr in search of inspiration from some display masters.
To find some little friends to liven up your own displays, there's plenty to be found on Etsy:
How about some owl salt and pepper shakers?
Or a deer?
Or maybe some swans?
So many cute animals out there, just waiting for a home....
