It always makes me feel sad for the animals when I see taxidermy... glad to know that the zebra died naturally, though. I'm more of a fan of the ceramic or bright enamel heads that don't look real at all.

Ehh so not a fan. Boyfriend is a hunter but I don't even like when he brings his hunting clothes inside, can you imagine what I would do if he brought in an animal? Ew

Actually, when Sam and I were initially shopping/brainstorming for my living room, we found the most STUNNING white peacock that we were thinking about putting in my living room. Very similar to the one you have in the post, but it was MUCH more reasonably priced. At the end of the day, it didn't work out, but I really wanted it! xo A
