Inspired by Orvis!

First I have to say another big Thank-you to Linda for once again updating my blog page.  
I am officially re-labeling her the "Blog Elf" for the season!
She compiled a new header for me with pictures from last year's Christmas posts! I am so grateful for her help, 
because I would have given up long ago if it wasn't for her! 

Inspired by Orvis!

From the Orvis catalog
 While sipping my morning coffee I saw this 
fur draped deer in the Orvis catalog and a 
light went off!

I have two deer statues that I could jazz up a 
bit like this too!


I'm pretty sure they used real rabbit fur but I went for a faux fur.

I found this sold on a roll like ribbon.  


I came up underneath and hand sewed 
it together with a few stitches and added a 
jewelery piece for the accent.  I used a small
toothed comb to fluff the fur.



Don't you think he's a handsome guy!

This is the other one that I situated in front of the sofa.

I thought it was a fun easy way to jazz them up!
What do you think?

  10. I think your deer look great! It was an excellent idea to glam them up with a little fur. They are all set for the season now.

  11. Great idea! I have some deer who are probably chilled and need fur collars, too.
