Honestly, this post is just a reason for me to fantasize about what it would be like to have little hedgehogs living in my garden, all cute and waddly. So I found videos, GIFs, and helpful tips to teach me all about my completely-imaginary hedgehog.

Dudes, I woke up this morning and looked out the window and the world looked SO GREEN after all the rain Iowa got this week. It's been warm here for weeks, but it's not spring until the plants are growing. And it looks like people in the Offbeat Home Flickr pool are feeling the same fresh verdantness. Let's take a look at the world with fresh eyes, and enjoy the Clicky Link bounty.
Are you coveting the look of the taxidermy trend but don't want to fork up the cash for a real antique? Tired of the limited selection of real animals? You're in luck: today I'll show you had to make a faux animal head from junk you have lying around the house and thrift store supplies.
I grew up in the country. Pets were whatever I could bring home. I raised some baby mice, had a sand piper for a spell, and dreamed of having a pet raccoon like in Rascal.
I'm a grown-ass lady now, and know that I would never, ever keep a non-domesticated animal as a pet — but it is still SO FUN to pretend I can!

My Christmas decorations are all ocean-themed. The santa on our stocking isn't on a sleigh, but paddling a canoe, our tree is covered in shells and ocean critters, and our color scheme is turquoise, green, and silver. So, I set out to find some of the best ocean-themed Christmas tree ornaments out there — and came away with a big haul, all sea creatures, some more fantastical than others.
