When I'm thrifting or antiquing, one of the things I'm always on the hunt for are vintage brass animal figurines. They add just the right amount of personality to a vanity or bookshelf, don't you think? My collection includes a couple of small brass bulldogs, an owl, a deer and a quail -- all found at thrift stores for $2 or less. I have yet to find anything bigger than something that would fit in the palm of my hand, but I'm always looking. I mean, that big ol' hippo is the best! How much fun is he?!

Do you have a brass animal menagerie? If yes -- what's in your collection?!
