"Couldn t give him away!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I bought this with the intention of giving it to my adult daughter, who has cute little animal figurines on her desk and peeking out throughout her office. But when I unwrapped it to make sure he hadn t been damaged during shipping, I couldn t put him down. I sat there like an idiot, smiling and rubbing my thumb over his smooth little belly. Needless to say, I sent him nowhere. He is mine! The artist did a beautiful job, and there some other figurines of his that I will be adding to my bird collection.

"A wonderful gift for a dear friend"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This caught my eye: I have a wonderful friend and former teacher who collects unique bird figurines. I bought it for her, crossing my fingers because she has very high standards. I waited for her to open it. I held my breath. She looked at it, she touched it: she was absolutely delighted. It is far nicer than the very pretty picture can convey. I am thrilled.

"Turkey hunting stuff"

This is not an exact replica of a wild turkey, more like a caricature. It sits in a curio cabinet with other turkey hunting memorabilia and looks really cool. Excellent workmanship and quality.
