~ Oh Deer...~


Well, I had a moment before retirng to the bedroom. Have to work tomorrow so I thought I would show a little snapshot of my newest project. I hope all the animal lovers will not hate me. I have had a fascination with the beauty of a deer's face. Lately there are alot of magazines using taxidermy animals as decorating objects. I love animals and never thought in my wildest dreams I would purchase a Deer head and actually want to embellish it in my style. So I went for it! I wanted to be able to redress her for the seasons. The head piece is removable, and the lace is simply tied around her antler....

  1. i dig it. Might as well find them and make them pretty or comical or whatever. Taxidermy is art and 'animal rights folk' tend to be way too extreme anyway. i have been attracted to taxidermy more and more lately. A great BBQ bar/grill we frequent has some cool elk, deer,buffalo,bobcat, antelope, etc. i have a Northern that my grandpa caught in the 30's that i've embellished in "my own style" - i placed a Barbie leg in its mouth for that 'finishing touch.' Yes, a little "Jaws-like" but oh the fun of it all! :) You've got a great blog!

  3. She's just lovely. Did you give her a name? If not, maybe Fawn would be nice. I' think she looks so sweet with her head tilted like that. I've been looking for just the right white goose, I know 'Lucy' is out there somewhere just waiting to fly south to live in Texas.

  5. And I thought I was the only one. I have a crystal teardrop from a chandelier hanging in the corner of a deer's eye that my husband shot and had mounted.

  6. I think (she?) looks so fetch in her elegant head gear. That's what you call making it your own!
