Decorating the Nursery

[Apologies for another baby-related post. -Ed.]

When we were kids, my mom hung a terrifying marionette in our room. I think its face was hand-painted by Latvian gypsies and it would twist around slowly on its string, casting fiendish shadows on the walls.

Anyway, so naturally I'd like to up the ante with my child's room. I've been looking around for something creepy, but without much luck. Until now.

Thanks to a mention in this New York Times blog, I think I found it. Taxidermied hybrid "fantasy" animals!

Unfortunately, these things start at around $500. Maybe we can forgo a crib. Priorities, people!!
