I had planned to take down the Christmas decorations and tree at work today, but it got...busy. It's all still up.
I had many admirers of my shoes and my shoulder-tiger (we'll get to him shortly) today, and a few people happily noted that my hair matches my jacket.

Look at his little face.
Here's how nicely he drapes over my shoulder.
I did some poking around on the interwebz to see if I could find out anything about him. Answer: not much. Some sellers are calling him 1970s vintage, some are saying he's 1980s - there are a lot of him out there! However, I think he's actually a mass-produced item and is more modern. He is definitely vintage-inspired, but not actual vintage. There is no age at all on him - the gold-tone is very smooth - and he's very well-made. The crystals are very sparkly, so he's good quality, regardless of where he came from.
