Friday Finds... Meet Maxwell

Meet Maxwell.

Ever since we have mounted our television I have been wanting some sort of antlers or deer head above it.  I know it is sort of trendy right now, but I find it very ironic and funny.  Why is it ironic and funny... well here is the RD version:
About 12 years ago I was engaged to a wonderful man who was a huge hunter.  I constantly had ducks and deer in my refrigerator.  Though he was a wonderful man, he just was not MY wonderful man.  SO I ended the engagement.  I met my husband, a non hunter, two years later.  So for me to actually WANT to mount a deer head on my wall just makes me chuckle!

After searching high and low I saw this deer posted on Copy Cat Chic

It was the perfect size and it was only $60!!
Luckily the hubs was totally on board with this idea, but he thought his eyes were a little creepy.  I loved that the antlers looked like wood... but thought he would be less creepy all white.
I also love that his head is looking to the right so as it is centered on my wall... it sort of gives the juxtaposition of balance.

Here is Max dressed up for winter.  This is my husbands family tartan.  I just love him!
What do you think?  Are you a trendy deer head lover or just not your style?

Happy Weekend!
