Oh Deer…

Oh Deer… my faux white deer is just so much fun to have on my wall this Christmas!  He proudly and silently wears his holiday decor as he reigns over our living room.

And, NO, he is NOT for sale – I just liked the cute little metal sign that I found at the Craft Market for $1 😀

The little white balls were from last years tree.

His scarf I made especially for him from the sleeves of a thrifted sweater.

Maybe next year I’ll spring for a string of battery-powered lights to deck his rack!!

Do you decorate for Christmas?  Do you have all of yours done yet?

      :) I kept thinking he needed a scarf but didn’t have anything that would work – finally figured out that it needed to be smaller and not a print so I made this one!

    Darling deer! The scarf adds so much!

    I have really just began decorating for the season. As the first day of Christmas starts on the 25th and ends on the epiphany (Jan. 6th) I am in no rush.

    I hope your day is magical.

      Thank you Laura! My decor will stay up for awhile – we are traveling over Christmas this year and won’t be back till the first of 2013. My box from you arrived today!!!!! I was so excited! So much great fun stuff! I don’t think I can bring myself to use that beautiful towel from sur la table – it just might find itself repurposed into something else really fun! and the necklace!! My daughter is dying to wear it – might let her use it for her Christmas necklace. And the little bracelets for the girls – so sweet and so cute – I just love them and they were thrilled!! You are wonderful dear friend!

    I just LOVE that!!! I’ve been seeing deer heads inside wreaths or frames like this around blogland and I’m very smitten with the look. Yours looks great with the knitted scarf you made. You’re so clever. I love a touch of whimsy like this in a home. It keeps things fun.

      Thank you Kelly! It’s funny cause when I stuck him in those frames I hadn’t seen the idea anywhere. Now I see it everywhere! Great minds think alike I guess! Or else it just pops out at me now!

    Oh my this is the most amazing head ever. Where ever did you pick him up? I have a pair of antlers in my room but they are baby size…yours is so much more substantial. and super cool. Your decorating vignettes are wondeful. Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving me such a nice comment.

    Have a crafty week.

    Hi Jill!
    Love your faux deer! I have a real one…hubby hunts, what can I say? ;o)
    I should hang him and decorate him! Hubs would get a kick out of that!! The scarf is great, too! Wonderful idea! Starting to decorate tomorrow! Can’t wait!

    Thanks for joining in Blissful Whites Wednesday, too!!!

      Oh Becky! I want a real deer head so bad! I’ve wanted one for all the 15 years we have been married. Get that guy on your wall and get him blinged out! Oh the ideas I’ve had for decking out a real one!
