NO DEER WERE HURT FROM THIS POST & PURCHASE
One of my dear mommy friends just started her own business selling painted antlers – Natural Elements by Ashley. Before I go any further, I need to note that as popular as antlers and resin/faux animal heads are becoming, antlers are actually shed by the deer. Who knew? “All deer antlers need to fall off once a year as antler re-growth is a natural part of the deer anatomy.” (resource: ehow)
Exhale. I certainly don’t want to be kicked out of PETA.
I know you’ve seen them everywhere as I have. Restoration Hardware chandelier.

Not sure how Ashely gets it all done as she is a lawyer on Capitol Hill and has 3 cutie pies of her own! Check out her site: Natural Elements by Ashley
