In December I wrote about my coveting a Narwhal (who doesn't?). Well, a Narwhal ornament from Anthropologie. Rachel, left a note that she buys her Anthro ornaments when they go on sale after Christmas. I went the 26th all ready to buy piles of rogue Narwhal Christmas ornaments only to find that everyone else must have either A) read that note or B) had enough common sense to figure that sale thing out on their own (I don't get out much).  I stood where there was once an abundance of Narwhal's and rued the day I set eyes on one. I decided to see if Paper Source had any left over ornaments--they did! This sad little whale, with his loop to hang him from a proper Douglas fir ripped out looked at me with his beady eye and whispered, "Lady, please take me home". I scooped him up and now Winston the Whale lives in my studio and earns his keep by being a fairly obedient model. I love that you can see (and read) his paper mache body, it only adds interest to him. I don't regret not having any Narwhals in my life since Winston came into it. Sometimes when we want something and don't get it, we find that we get something even better.

I will be editing a photo a day for the remainder of 2012::Project MMXII, this is my 'after', you can view the 'before' here.
