Crafted In Bone

We're fortunate to have a Cost Plus World Market in SLO. Their motto: "Unique, authentic, and always affordable" made my day when we first moved here and needed furniture asap to accommodate our first visitors. We made several trips to World Market and furnished our home just the way we were hoping to. Let's just say Armando from World Market gives me a hearty "hello" when he sees me.

Nowadays, I don't visit World Market too often but I do get their weekly emails. I had to smile when I saw their ad for "Wood Grain Medium Antlers", crafted in resin. (Though I had to grimace at the typos in their ad.)

WHY WE LOVE IT  Our Wood Grain Medium Antlers are all the rage! This top-of-trend decor piece is designed to as nature-inspired visual interest to you bookshelf, centerpiece or tabletop. Ideal for holiday tableaux, eclectic living spaces or your mountain getaway.

We've been lucky that our local deer have been supplying us with their discarded antlers.

If they keep it up we'll have a shed antler chandelier in no time at all.

Gathering shed antlers or "sheds" attracts dedicated practitioners who refer to it colloquially as shed hunting. In the United States, the middle of December to the middle of February is considered shed hunting season, when deer, elk, and moose begin to shed. Wikipedia
