What I’m Loving Right Now…
Trends definitely come and go. Have you noticed that faux taxidermy isn’t really going anywhere yet? It’s still popping up in shelter mags and your favorite online retailers and shops. I flirted with it this fall and winter when I made my glittered reindeer art. Then, I was on the hunt for some antlers or faux taxidermy that wouldn’t break the bank. Every time I came across one I loved it was way out of my meager price range. I couldn’t see shelling out a couple hundred bucks for well…a buck.

Embrace it in your space…
This weekend as we hit up some of our favorite flea markets and shops I found a pair of old antlers for only $17. That was the lowest price I’ve seen on them around my corner of the world. They were mounted on a nasty piece of wood, but I could see that I could easily disassemble it and just use the antlers. I was able to talk them down even more, which you should always try to do when you are at a flea market. I should do a post on flea market tips one of these days!
I just love a little ugly with my pretty in a room! They add more interest and I can use them in different ways. Adding natural elements whether it be a piece of driftwood, plants, or antlers is a great way to layer your space.
Have you jumped on the taxidermy trend or do you want it to be on its way out?
