I like the name Foxfire. Not sure I'd want a stuffed fox though as I think taxidermy is kind of creepy. (Probably just me and my over-active imagination)
I'd probably get the name confused with Firefox (a search engine). I don't mind stuffed deer, ducks and even bears but I'm not so sure about a fox. Love the wood paneling.
There is something about foxes that is just noble.To answer your question, no I've never experienced an arctic freeze in Minnesota. I'm such a wimp about the cold anymore, I'm not sure I could. You know the summer's here do get exceptionally hot and by September most of us desert dwellers have had about enough of it, but I wouldn't trade it for arctic freezes. And when we have days like we did on Friday, I know I'm blessed to live here. Today we have rain which is very unusual and I think because it's so rare we love it.
I can smell the wood of the cabin. Ahhhhhhh. We have foxes here, too. And we have a large realty company called "Foxfire." Whoopee!
Nice pose the Taxidermist gave the Fox. Shows well with the wood background.
I was thinking the book series: Foxfire by Elliot Wiggington.
We have a friend in Arizona who has several stuffed javalinas in his house. His wife refused to have any more, so he had to put one in his office. They are big, ugly wild boars.
The sign is delightful and the fox is beautiful, although I find stuffed animals (at least the real ones) a bit creepy. I often wonder if they get fleas.
I like that name. By up north, you must mean by the border. I saw a beautiful red fox up north in Alaska once. I was thrilled to see one in the wild and so close. I even got a picture.
nice name for a cabin. :)
I love the sign and the name. The cabin sounds wonderful.
Cabins are the best place in the world. Nice name and namesake. - Margy
I worked once for an environmental center where taxidermied critters (mostly birds and small mammals) were used for nature education. The poor things were pretty bedraggled, not nearly as beautiful as the fox above. Reminds me of the shock I got oneday when I opened the office refrigerator and found a skunk in the freezer, awaiting its visit to the taxidermist.
I have a friend who has a bear and a bobcat mounted but I have never seen anyone with a fox. The taxidermist did get a good pose and the cabin seems lovely!Happy weekend!
Poor little fox.
I bet you enjoyed that trip. We have a LARGE stuffed elk above our fireplace in Colorado. it was a gift. Tom could never kill anything. When children ask where we got the elk..He replies " it just ran through that wall and got stuck".
Our family loves all things "fox". When I saw the name Foxfire it reminded me of the book series on Appalachian life. Nice choice for a cabin in the woods.
Thanks for visiting my blog; I appreciate it! Come back often!!
