Acquisitions: Taxidermied Pheasant, Wasp's Nest

What started as a fairly acquisitive weekend (with the purchase of the African head, a vintage canvas chair for my day job office and a drafting stool for the kitchen), grew into an all-out taxidermy shopping spree when Porter and I popped into the exceptional and reasonably-priced Obscura Antiques + Oddities at 280 East 10th Street (between 1st and Ave. A in the East Village). We picked up this lovely pheasant and the leaf-laden wasp's nest.
