If I Had a Lake House

*This blog post title should be sung to the tune of Gwen Stefani's "If I Was a Rich Girl" or Fiddler on the Roof's Tevye's "If I Was a Rich Man." It's your choice.

Despite how much I don't like bugs and bears that aren't caged, I do like the idea of having a lake house. (Of course, the first goal is to own a house-house.) And despite how much I've never liked having dead animals on the wall, if I had this lake house, I would want dead "animals" for its walls. Here are my three top choices, and yes, I do want all three. I might even put them next to each other so they can hang out. If loving this idea is wrong (and it is...) then I don't want to be right.

The first one comes from Rick's Custom Squirrels. Actually a dead animal, but it's dressed up so that's okay.

This keeps it classy, from Rachel Denny via Crib Candy.

This is the real prize, and I think even if the lake house never pans out, little Albert might like it for his room. T-rex is also from Crib Candy.

And of course they will all wear Santa hats during the holidays.

On a final note, I would like to say that animals on the wall generally goes against my decorating aesthetic, it's just an odd weakness. Don't judge.

Ummm, those are all terribly frightening.

Are we going with Albert? Do you need more convincing?

It would be extra helpful if you could erase all images and sounds relating to Fat Albert from my mind. Particularly, Michael Scott saying Jim Halpert to the "tune" of Fat Albert which particularly haunts me.

Also, start coping with the fright if you want to come out to our lake house.
