The Antler Project



You know I'm on an antler mission.  I told you about my Anthropologie Surroyal antler-y pitcher HERE.  And I even have an "Antler Decor" Pinterest board {HERE}.  And I guess it's time to take it up a notch because I actually bought the real thing at an antique mall recently. I wasn't totally thrilled with it since it wasn't really mounted on anything.  So of course you know I'll have to do that myself!  I'm actually looking forward to that project. Until then, I thought I'd share a recent purchase that couldn't have been more timely, seeing that I'm head. over. heels. in. love. with these things.

Chickadee number three and I were walking through Target recently when I was stopped in my tracks by a "90% Off" all Christmas items clearance sale. I really wasn't looking for any Christmas decor. If anything I should be paring down what I have. But I just couldn't help myself from at least taking a look. The antler fairy must have been watching over me because here's what I found.
Deer Antler Holder Mercury Glass Bowl

I never would have bought this at its original price of $29.99. But at 90% off, well, I kind of had to buy it. I mean, it was $2.99. That's for both the awesome mercury glass bowl AND the antler base.  Woot woot!



How cool is this?





So, yeah, it was a bit of a late purchase for Christmas decor.  But I think I can leave this one out all year.  What do you think?

$2.99? Are you kidding me? Wow, I would have grabbed it too. It would definitely work all year long!
