Animal Whimsy

Vintage Brass Donkey Bottle Opener, via High Street Market

We stumbled upon this bottle opener a couple of days ago, at High Street Market, and laughed out loud. Wouldn’t this opener give you a little smirk at every bottle? We love a little dash of whimsy in any room. Here are a couple more that have a little fun with the great animal kingdom…
