Montage: 20 Penguins and Polar Bears

I’ve been meaning to do a post about giraffes—I’ve been seeing them everywhere—but since it’s holiday time, polar bears and penguins seem more suitable. And in fact, I’ve been seeing a proliferation of penguins in decor lately too. We even have a penguin etching that we purchased a few years back at the SMFA sale that we still need to get framed; there’s an empty spot over the banquette waiting for it. Happy penguin + polar bear season to all.

On Trend: 35 Arrays of Arrows and Targets

I’ve been collecting images of arrows and targets for a while; I think I began to notice the trend in the fall. I thought it was a natural outgrowth of the trend of using feathers in decor, but I actually think it is part of The Hunger Games hoopla. In any case, I did a a piece on the arrow trend for The Inside Source earlier this year, and profiled blogger Amanda Hanley, in the Boston Globe Magazine. Put off by the high prices of vintage arrows, Hanley makes and sells arrows through her webshop Quivver. I, along with everyone else, saw The Hunger Games over the weekend, and as such felt inspired to post the roundup. UPDATE: I can’t believe I forgot about my own display of targets… They’re by Tracy Melton, and they’re hanging in our house on the Cape. It’s the first photo on the 23 Wall Installations post.
