Critters Aplenty

Critters live and otherwise from the Minnesota State Fair!

Live from a couple of artisan shops, skilled in various trades from clay to taxidermy.  I wouldn't decorate my walls with these, but I do appreciate the realness and skill involved with each darling critter.



This sign maker was all about spreading the critter love.

For dog lovers.

Hippity Hoppity 

Say hello to this people watcher as he sits high above the crowd!

Can't forget the kitty cat lovers.

Pottery works!

Don't forget the all-you-can-drink-milk booth at the fair!
Although, the milk which flowed for a dollar per bottomless cup,
this year, the price has finally doubled. Still for milk lovers, how can you go wrong?  White or chocolate.

Thank you for stopping by to say hello and sharing my critters!
 Enjoy your weekend and critters.

Aww I think I could love those raccoons!
That last photo of the cow on top of the car is a hoot!

That's a Jack O Lope in the one pic isn't it? I haven't seen one of those since I was road tripping across the US out by the Grand Canyon! They room wild and free there. Enjoy your weekend!

Wow, those raccoons are cute. I like the three piled on top of each other. I would not hang them in my house though. I like the signs too, furbabies do have their favorite seats in the house. I have not had chocolate milk in a long time, now I will be craving some. Great post and images. Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Have a happy weekend!

I think its amazing, they look alive. We have a taxidermist just down the road. He's been there since long before our development was built. Loved the photos, just realized the cow was hanging out of the vw. What a hoot!

The stuffed creatures give me the creeps! ;-))

Very lifelike...except they won't knock over your garbage cans or raid your feeders (which are both improvements!).

Not really a fan of taxidermy. I can see the skill, but...
And as I type, the cats have hogged the bed and the most comfortable chair.

WHAT is that cow doing to that VW?! LOL

Yes, good shots, bad decor, K

Raccoons are cute in someone else's yard. Those bandits have stolen bird feeders and clean them out and leave them in the shrubby, so I have to search to find them. Now I bring the feeder in at night.

So real! And I love the "best seat" signs! :-)

Great shots!

Would not be comfortable with such a racoon.
