Is it just me, or is this peacock turning up a lot lately? This one is in the July/August Elle Decor:

While the peacock is beautiful, I’d rather have a LIVE peacock strolling the grounds of my estate than a dead stuffed one up on a ladder in my living room. Taxidermy reminds me too much of Norman Bates.

    Becky, the sunflowers on the table and the framed train tracks in the background remind me of a wonderful CD cover you once designed.I’ll take the live sunflowers over the stuffed peacock any time.
