« Random stuff | Main | A small project and some purchases »


The other day I was talking to my twin sister and she mentioned that she works with a guy named Jim who lives in Alberta (he travels home every second weekend), on a farm in the middle of nowhere (with no TV!!). Apparently he's got a zillion acres of land, and comes across all sorts of neat stuff on his property like deer and moose antlers, and the occasional coyote skull. My sister begged him to bring back some antlers for her and I. So he did! Well, I think he's actually got his niece hunting through the snow looking for goodies for us so she can make a little cash. :-) In any case, I have finally acquired some deer antlers! He brought back 3 this time, 1 rather large one which my sister took so I insisted I should get the 2 smaller ones. They are so beautiful and I love that some gorgeous deer were at one point walking around with these things. Now I just need to find the perfect spot in my home for them....and hopefully some more soon!

Way cool! We don't have animals here that drop stuff. Well they drop dung but never antlers. We do have egg laying mammals though and marsupials that have pouches but they still don't drop antlers. I'll swap you a platypus or a kangaroo for a deer or a moose.

I am always on the search for antlers when I'm walking in the forest with my pup! (I have lots of forest area's around my house, with huge amounts of deer! since the area is protected)
I love the colour and beauty of the antlers, yours are perfect next to that lamp!!
