Laura: Z is for Zebra

I recently decided that I really, really like zebras. They have the grace of a horse, yet the b/w stripes are so random and fun. However they aren't completely ridiculous. I think that's the way to be--not to take life too seriously, to look like you're having fun while still managing to have some sort of elegance to you. :P The perfect combination! I have a magnet on my fridge that says "Elegance is good taste plus a dash of daring", which is what the zebra has, I think. :P

So, here are my zebra finds.

The only thing I love more then this cover is the book itself, it's really good. But I could just stare at the cover for ever...

I could totally see a zebra themed bathroom, using some of those decals. The walls would either be a sort of emerald green, pale yellow, or pale pink, and the floor would be that b/w checkerboard tile! Ah, if I had my own house to decorate XD

Next are some art prints

Zebras are pretty elegant. I like the zebra eating the bar code and the wall decals.
