A few weeks ago I wandered into Paxton Gate's Curiosities for Kids, and though the store was filled with delights, as always, I only had eyes for these little shadowboxes, home to sweet and menacing forest creatures…
Paxton Gate's Curiosities for Kids is always a fun stop, even if you don't have any kids in your life. In addition to having a wonderfully curated selection of toys, the shop also acts as a gallery, with at least one artist's work on display.

The ones featured there contained pairs of little birds and wolves, and on her website you'll find solitary wolves, foxes, and monsters, of course. You've got to have monsters.
