Doe A Deer

I have often lamented the fact that kitsch deers are hard to find around here. You see them in the antique stores, but I'm too much of a cheapskate to pay 40 bucks for a figurine.
So I was delighted when I found this kitsch beauty at Endos....


I'm using the deer vase as a bracelet holder. Most things have a useful purpose in my house.


And a wee deer cross-stitch. I found a frame that fits at another op shop.


I also scored these 3 handmade needlework doilies, or a 'duchess set' for $1.



And while on the deer theme, my bestie Miss J picked up this blue moose beauty for me while she was holidaying in Byron Bay

  6. I'm always looking longingly at deer figurines at the antique stores, wondering why I never see those beauts at the oppies. Well done on this find, it's a good one, that's for sure!

  12. Those deer doilies are great. Everything to do with deer seems to be very popular at the moment so maybe that's why they are usually so expensive in antique shops.

  15. I'm too cheap to shell out $40 on a figurine too. That's why I cherish my $1 or under buys from my Salvation Army. *heheh*
    Love all your deers!
    And the blue moose too.

  17. I am in love with the deer cross-stitch!! The green back ground is so "you"!!!! I agree, why would anyone pay $40 when with experience and patience you can find treasure for less than a tenth of that price. This post reminds me of our lovely meet up at Modaks and all the kitsch deer and squirrels and things. xx
