The fantasy creature heads are a bit kitsch, but so are we. They are from immliving and are supposed to be jewelry hooks, though we don’t feel comfortable hanging things from them. The ceramic feels a bit too delicate to really hang things from, and I’m rather clumsy. Dave didn’t say it directly, but we both know if I kept putting things on, and pulling them off, I’d probably break them at some point. In the end, they are just decorative, and we bought a basket from Dollarama to hold our keys.
I bought the jackelope some time ago, because it reminded me of my Uncle Rocky and Aunt Angel (who I’m named after). My Uncle was a hunter, and had a man cave that he called the Bad Boy Room. The Bad Boy Room was where he kept hunting trophies, old guns, and antiques – including a large bear that my parents frightened me with as a kid. No one expects to walk into a room and see a bear! I’m not the hunting type, but I am a big fan of fantasy creatures, and I figured ceramic fantasy creatures would be a little less off putting.
The unicorn is not as cool as the jackelope, but I thought the jackelope needed a friend to balance him out visually.
