Hey Little Birdie!

Etsy Shop: Misfit Menagerie

Last weekend at the Queen Bee Market, there were so many great vendors. I mean, really so many. But for some reason, there was one that brought out in me an unabashedly stalkerish attitude. Seriously, I think I lurked or “wandered over” there to “look around” like 20 times. Granted I am a slow, methodical shopper, always trying to get the most I can for the amount of cash burning a hole in my pocket. But last Saturday, I took this deliberate shopping approach to a new level.


The booth was Misfit Menagerie, and it hosted a wall of plush deer heads, otherwise known as faux taxidermy. Now, I realize this isn’t for everyone. In fact, as I was oogling, I heard two women declare how odd it all was. They professed that they just didn’t get it. Yet in contrast, I did – hook, line and sinker! I was dreaming up ways to get a large ram head in perfect colors and fabrics for Lyla’s room. Instead I walked away with a small mounted fish that is adorable (see it in Lyla’s room below). But maybe someday soon, I will add to that collection. Just as long as that doesn’t make me “the lady with a faux taxidermy” obsession.

Whatever the case, go check out some of their stuff. Trust me, the pictures don’t even do it justice.

Oh and if you are wondering, Lyla’s infatuation knows no bounds for the fishy we’ve named Pinky. Apples don’t fall far from the tree, I guess.

  3. Those make me laugh out loud! Must say it is a kinder, gentler sort of taxidermy.
