Remember the one that got away?
In case you missed that blog post, I missed this fabulous lifesize plaster zebra by about 30 seconds. I still regret it.
When I went to Atlanta last weekend, guess what was sitting in my friend's amazing dining room? A lifesize terracotta zebra. My friend's house is a spacious 1890's Victorian with large rooms, so the zebra is perfectly perched in a corner of her dining room. She purchased it from a Florida dealer at Scott's. I die at its fabulousness.
Sadly, I didn't find a lifesize zebra at Scott's on Saturday. And to be honest, there isn't a great place for it in my ranch-style home. Or that is what I tell myself, although if I happened to find one I am SURE I could get rid of a sofa or something practical like that to make a place for it.
I did spot this smaller version at Scott's, and I had to bring him home with me. He is Italian, in absolutely perfect condition, and although not lifesize, at nearly 2-feet long he is no shrinking violet. I like how his glazed grassy green bed contrasts with the black and white.
He is already part of the family and has gained the love and admiration of two little children. My husband likes him, too. It's a win/win. Until I find another lifesize zebra.
Do you love zebras?
