My awesome sister [insert link here when she starts her own blog-ahem] bought me these, just because, and it's not even my birthday! I used to collect all things turtles, and yes, we actually owned pet turtles until they were eaten by rats (true story). She knew I wanted a blue and orange theme for our formal living and dining, so she thought these were perfect. Apparently they were on sale, so I didn't feel too bad. All I need now is either a buffet table, side tables, or a dresser to put these on. I love the vibrant colors, gold details and the pretty stripes on the back. Another reason why they're cool - they're all Michaelangelos - my fav ninja turtle! Now I'm craving some pizza!
