First, I just wanted to thank you all for your condolences after the loss of one of my pets earlier this week. It really meant a lot. Losing a pet is never easy, no matter what the species.
I've been trying to keep my mind off of things, by going to a concert on Wednesday night, and taking yesterday off from bathroom renovations to do something completely different, planning another vacation itinerary. I know, I know, we still haven't booked any of the fully planned and budgeted out Grand Bahama Island, Florida Keys or Belize vacations I already shared! But having one more option can't hurt, now that we're actually a lot closer to an appropriate booking time frame for next spring.
Another thing that has distracted me this sad week is the arrival of two little vintage ceramic deer. I'd ordered them ages ago, and forgot, but they finally arrived. I think they look perfect, nestled in the planter behind our fire pit terrace wall.
I think the sleepy one is my favorite. She goes well with Bernard. But the awake one has such a cute expression on his face, like he's cooking up some mischief--just like the three baby deer who frequent our backyard.
I know, I've said it before, I'm not really a ceramic animal type of person. But when I saw these little guys, I just knew they would be a perfect compliment to the stone carved deer on our deck. I can't wait for another month to pass, when it will finally cool off enough to actually use our fire pit again, and I can enjoy looking at these new additions to our deer-decor family. At least this time around, we won't have a few back-breaking weekends of hard work before we can have a fire!
Are you a fan of ceramic animals? Do you like any and all ceramic animals, or are there just one or two types of animals that you make an exception for? And happy Friday, hope you all have a lovely weekend!
