For those of you who know me, this post may seem a bit ironic. In the last year I have started liking antlers and deer. Cute antlers and deer (not necessarily real). Now that it’s wintertime, I am starting to like them even more. A few weeks ago, L., E. and I browsed through our local antique mall and found a cute deer that just needed a little makeover. I asked L. what color she wanted to paint him. I gave her the choices of sparkly silver, gold, or red.
She chose silver glittery paint.
This is as far as she got before she was done. I was happy to finish the painting. To cover the whole deer, I had to apply two really thick layers of glitter paint.
He ended up so pretty and shiny. I love him in his little forest. For a while I thought of putting pink leg warmers on him. L. wanted purple leg warmers. Finally I decided that he would probably have an identity crisis if we gave him leg warmers. He is obviously a guy. And I’m pretty sure only the boy deer have antlers.
So we went with a plain, masculine red scarf.
He wears it well, don’t you think?
