No. I cannot deal with the hilarious, weird, cuteness of these  little “totems”! They are the work of California based artist Laura Johnston. That dinosaur and sloth are killing me, and I have a fat little wiener dog that looks exactly like that fat little wiener dog! She releases new clay totems every Wednesday – hey, that’s todayso pop over and see if there’s anything that speaks to your inner wild lemming. Now, how do you keep your totem with you all day? No problem, Laura also makes these sweet pewter pieces … and I happen to have these four hilarious necklaces for sale in my online gallery! If you want one move quick like a Jackalope because they’re going fast (they’re only $34?!)… I really want that narwhal. Ooh, or the sloth. Ok, and maybe the raptor and his little Velveteen Rabbit friend too.

    OH! I had totally forgotten about these. I was such a huge fan of these totems on Etsy a million years ago. I’m so happy to have been reminded that they exist, they are so very special and I need a sloth in my life SO BADLY!
