More Foxy Finds

Foxes are trending. As a fox fanatic, I have mixed feelings about this. Part of the fun of collecting something is that it's like a treasure hunt. It's so fun to run across a fox in an unexpected place and collect it. Up until this year, they've been few and far between. This fall, they're popping up everywhere. I certainly don't feel compelled to buy every fox I see (which is good), and as with anything that becomes trendy, you get a lot of really dumb-looking foxes. On the other hand, it's kinda nice to be able to find more of a variety of fox stuff. So, mixed feelings.

My weekly Hobby Lobby raid produced the following treasures: a pretty little dish,

a winter doll (check out the fur boots!),

and a lovely little glass ornament (sniffed and approved by Tiger Lily).

Bonus: all 40% off! Yay!

Now, when this will really get dangerous is if the fox trend catches on with the needlework designers like the owl trend has done. I may need to be restrained. And there are signs, y'all, there are signs. Just Nan has just introduced a fox needle slide and a fox charm garden pin. Yes, those are coming to my house. 

And so it begins...


  1. =) Ha! If only poodles would catch on. ;) Have fun with it.

    1. You never know! If there's a 50's craze, they might be everywhere! Bliss for you! :O)

  2. All of your fox finds are so cute!! I can understand why there might be a trend in needlework and I would be right behind you in line buying them!! LOL! Laura

  3. I think of you every time I see a cute one. I agree, they're everywhere. I do like the "Woodland" themed animals which of course includes owls & foxes, little deer, hedgehogs. But there was a time you couldn't find the foxes, and yes ~ it was the thrill of the hunt!

    The ornament is adorable. I'm glad Tiger Lily approves, because that is very important! :o)

    Have a wonderful weekend.

  4. I love them. I have been collecting them for the past couple years, and I think there is something about a fox!
