Wind Up Animals

When I was snapping photos for Everly last weekend I couldn’t resist taking a few pictures of this motley crew. I am obsessed with these things and am always on the lookout for more. Bonus points if they still work!

The elephant and the camel walk, the pig wags his tail, the bird pecks and the giraffe looks forlornly from side to side like he’s still looking for his original owner. I’ll have to take some videos when I get time.

It’s still acceptable to collect toys at 26, right?

  1. I love your antique toy collection. They work so well with the decor of your room. I think that if collecting vintage toys makes you happy, who cares whether or not it is age appropriate.

  2. Oh my goodness! What a wonderful collection – so cute!!! Also, I just have to say, I am a huge fan of your photography. You just make everything look so lovely.
