Don't you just love bookends, they have so much character. I have had these precious boy and girl musicians ( she has a lute of some sort which you can't see) since I was a child. They have had some repairs over the years...one was unfortunately decapitated and the other had some orthopedic issues, but they seem happy to be aging as well as they are. That's all any of us can ask for right?
I got these acorn bookends for Christmas feeding my desire for all things acorn related, except raking of course.
The wise owls hold up some of my cookbooks. I bought these when I was in college and was going through an "Owl Phase".
My Aunt Dorothy made these in a ceramics class at least 30 years ago.
I have one set that looks like old books, but unfortunately they need some touch up, so I will save them for another time.
