|I *heart* deer. I love to display my deer collection at Christmas time, because people aren’t as likely to think I’m nuts.|
This is the fireplace in my living room. I’ve got nine small deer that I display on the mantel.
Most of these lovelies I found at yard or estate sales for less than a dollar.
I found this sparkly doe at TJ Maxx last year.
|I’m using a lot of gold this year rather than silver or mercury glass, like I’ve done before. It’s a good thing, because there’s a lot of vintage gold deer out there.|
My mother bought this deer that was part of a store display over 20 years ago. It’s hokey, but cute. My kids love it – it’s name changes every year when it comes out for Christmas. It’s been Prancer, Comet, Blitzen, etc. – this year it’s Dancer. Visiting children always want to ride it.
This lovely dear, I mean deer, is always on display in my living room. But it’s happiest when surrounded by snowy trees and friendly gnomes.
I only collect things I love. And I only have collections that are truly functional for me or that speak to my decor style. I enjoy finding creative ways to display my collections, especially during holidays. What collections do you display at Christmas?
