Animal Love: Lions

Ever since Amy started her new Animal Love column, I’ve been jealously eying each post, wanting to jump in and do my own. So last week I emailed her to see which members of the animal kingdom hadn’t been covered yet. So far, she’s covered bees, bunnies, foxes, swans and elephants, with cats on the way next week, so I thought I’d tackle big cats with a post dedicated to LIONS. From doorknockers and keychains to pillows and artwork, this roundup of 25+ products is sure to have something for any big cat fans out there. Happy shopping! xo, grace

    One of favorite children’s books! ” The Lion and the Little Red Bird” would fit right into this collection.

  11. Yayyyy, lions! My favorite lion design is Lisa Larson’s. I’d love to see some vintage pieces in these collections!

    I adore the animal series, but this one will probably forever top them all for me. I have a special affinity for lions, and my name even means lioness.
