I know we bloggers love our deer, so I thought I'd show you part of my (inanimate) animal collection.
(Warning: cuteness overload)
Deer and fawn, from Trade Me.
A less realistic fawn!
Hornsea squirrel, fawn and rabbit vases
In their habitat
A sheep I inherited
Bunny egg cup
Obligatory kitten, from a jumble sale at work
There are thousands of these horses around, but this one has huge sentimental value because I owned it when I was a child.
I found this unicorn in a junk shop in Palmerston.
A koala jug I've had for years
I'm not sure what this animal is - maybe a squirrel?
Only two and a half weeks before my Christmas holiday and I can't wait to see the back of this year.
For various reasons it's been the year from hell!
I hope yours has been better.
