  1. Oh Debbie these are adorable!

  2. These are GREAT! I can’t wait for L&L to get them. They will love them!

  3. Love, love, love your bookends.how easily are these maintained? I CANNOT believe you’re a grandmother. I’ve been recently attracted to succulents. I know I cannot disturb the stash of dinos I have in the storage, so I guess I’ll be shopping.

  4. I hope these never become extinct – they’re too cute!

  5. What fun! What boy doesn’t love dinosaurs? Great idea, Debbie!
