or maybe a piece of furniture that rocks.....
But it's December for goodness sakes, and Danni is such a deer.....
|Uncle Tony's Mini Deer Ornament|
Over the years we have made lots of Rudolphs, and every one looks different. The newest ones were made for each of the Grand kids with their names.
No I do not have a grandson named Rudolph.
Our original deer had big wiggly eyes, but those didn't hold up so well in winter, and neither did their faux white fur tails. And more than a few red noses have smashed to the ground.
Now we make most of their body parts out of wood.
Brawns in charge of the main body, tails and ears, I do eyes, antlers, legs and finishing touches.
They get a coat of glitter so they sparkle in the snow, some get jute with bells, and some get scarves.
The scarf on this deer was an old knit hat with pom poms that I cut up.
Antlers are usually better looking,
but there were mosquitoes out in antler making country when this one was made.
The deer Uncle Tony made had noses that would light up.
Ours do not.
When this deer comes out of the shed it will go live at our oldest son's home, but first it will get some better antlers!
Thank you for inviting me Danni, I'm so very happy to be here and offer up a taste of Bliss Ranch inspiration at the Inspiration Cafe! Everyone is welcome to stop in at the ranch.
