custom pet figurines


They say the key to winning someone's heart is to dote on their pet. OK, so no one actually says that, but everyone knows it’s true. If you want to get in someone’s good books, tell them how much you love their pet, then give them things that affirm how wonderful their dog/cat/lizard is. For the latter, you can approach Emily Thomson (aka Periwinkle Nuthatch on Etsy), a New York maker who offers custom pet figurines. All you need to do is send Emily a few photos and fork over around $127. She'll then lovingly sculpt a miniature version of your pet, paint it and make sure it's all spick and span before sending it your way. The results, as you can see, are exceedingly adorable, and are bound to make any pet parent beam with joy.
