In 2014 I wrote a post about the popularity of antlers in home design: I had reservations about their overuse. Whenever anything becomes too popular I am automatically reticent about employing the trend in my own home or the homes of clients. I decided there was a middle ground when it comes to using antlers in an interesting way as described in my initial post.
My antler gift finally moved indoors this summer once I decided it was suitably bleached. The other one was left in the flower bed. Once moved inside it took up a nomadic existence as you can see from the photos below. You never knew where it would turn up.
On the trunk in the living room for an evening of company when you want some ambiance. The antler served as a place holder for the remote start candles. I love this invention; they flicker like real candles, smell like real candles and you don’t have to worry about fire. Thanks Costco!

And when not in use, it resides on the floor in the corner ready and willing to leap into service when called upon.
Perhaps you have an antler in your life and have ideas for its use. I would love to hear from you.
