Decorating With Animals...and...New Etsy Store Items


As I was doing my kitchen post the other day, I started looking around noticing all the animal decor I have. Wow! I didn't realize I had so many accessories with birds, cats, dogs and roosters...etc. I didn't even count the monkeys and elephants! I am drawn to this decor...especially birds! You will see when you scroll down. I do admit that I am an animal lover... maybe that's the reason I like it so much. Hmmm...I went around the house and snapped pictures of decor with animals...I even left some out! Oh my! lol...


I do love these little rabbit oil paintings. Aren't they sweet? I picked them up at market one year. Alot of my accessories were bought when I worked at the interior store. After we built the house I had saved money to make a trip to market to order several things...including furniture. That was a fun time!


I love this little clock too...it's so cute and different.

There are rabbits and birds in this picture in my laundry room. This little oil has lots of animals! There are the dogs on the mantle...they have been there forever! lol...It's almost time for a change... I love this little dog...my grandma bought him for my birthday one year.
Another cute little kitty oil.


I also bought these little oils when I worked at the interior store. Aren't they sweet?


These pictures belonged to my grandma. I inherited them when she passed away. I reframed the two bird pictures and hung them all together.I looked forever for just the right thing for this niche. I found the box and plates at market and had to have them. My sweet grandma gave me the money for these...she wanted me to have just the right thing!



Love this box...I spy some birds!
This bird lamp is from Hobby Lobby. Some of you might remember when I bought it and added the fringe and trim to the shade.




My mom gave me the bird pictures and I had them reframed.

This is one of my favorite bird accessories...I love the birds and the way the birdcage is mirrored. It reflects the rug.
I found this little wooden cat at T.J. Maxx a while back.

Bird bookends...Ok. you are probably thinking how much animal decor do I have?? lol...probably too much!
There are even birds on this lamp or lamps I have two matching ones in my bookcase. Bird box...

My favorite rooster plate...



Last but not least is Mr. Polk a dot roo! He keeps an eye on all of his animal friends around the house...lol.


I forgot the pretty yellow roos up in the cabinet! You can see them on my last post.

I have listed some new Etsy items in my store. How about a spring bird arrangement? If you are a bird lover like me then you will like this one!


I will have to say that the picture does not do this frame justice. That butterfly is so sparkly...and the ribbons are gorgeous and so silky! This frame would look good mixed in with spring or everyday decor...or even in a little girl's room.
This Fleur de lis tassel is full of beautiful ribbons and fringe! I am working on more similar to this one.
I have more items listed in my store...to visit click HERE. I hope all my animals didn't scare you away! lol...I know alot of you have roosters in the kitchen, but what about in other parts of the house? Just curious. It's just funny because I have never really thought about it...and all of a sudden I am seeing animals everywhere!


I have been working on the patios for the last few days. I just about have all of the flowers planted...I will show you soon! Lovin this warm weather!!! Have a great rest of the week!

I've realized that I have lots of birds and bunnies in my house too, Kristen! Definitely not a conscious thing, but once you start thinking about it you notice it. I love your bunny oils. I found some prints at art.com that I ordered; only framed one so far. Your bird prints are all gorgeous, too. Love all the frames.

Michele Smith said...

Kristen I love your style of decorating. Your house is beautiful. I liked seeing all of your animals scattered around! I brought a couple of resin turtles home from my friend's antique shop the other day and put them on the floor in the entry way by a big vase of twigs. It looks like they just got inside when the door was open!

Happy Thursday!

Melissa Miller said...

What beautiful items Kristen! I didn't realize you had so much animal decor' either? It looks gorgeous and perfect in your home.

Warmly, ~Melissa

Kim said...

Kristen you should have an animal decor party! We could all show off our animals. I just looked around from my computer and couldn't believe how many birdies I have surrounding me! Ha!

Love your animal decor - I have a thing for birds and bunnies and their cousins too! I almost bought that bird lamp this week - they have a very similar one at Kirkland's now. It all looks so pretty!

Farica said...

You have quite the menagerie going on! LOL!!! I'm starting to look around the room as I type this, and I think we all may just have a zoo and didn't realize it!! I have always loved that rooster plate in your kitchen and the bunny pictures there on your sofa table. GORGEOUS!!

Teresa @ Grammy Girlfriend said...

I just got back from market and wished I had been there at the same time...I am so tired....I think people don't get how hard working market is...Ha

Need to go and check out your shop....I got some great new ribbon...

Pamela said...

Oh Kristiin I love all of your pretties! My fave are the bunny oil paintings!! I had always seen them but never would buy one and now that I have warmed to the idea I cant find them anywhere!:(
