According to Realor.com, This is a trend that needs to die.
I come from a long line of two families that couldn't be more polar opposite. One side of the family would just, absolutely, be appalled at the thought of displaying a deer head. The other side of my family have walls covered in carcasses from hunts of an entire lifetime displayed proudly on their walls. And then there's me. Somewhere in the middle.
My husband is an avid hunter. There was a time when I thought this was disgusting and wouldn't dare eat venison, let alone display their horns. Until there was a day I didn't really have a choice. I thank God often for hard times. And for being able to find our way out of those hard times. Because there was a time when we weren't able to fill the fridge, I let my guard down and allow my husband to "bring home the bacon." and actually appreciate it! We have so much appreciation for the animals that walk this Earth and even more respect for them as they fill our bellies. This is something I would have never understood unless it personally related to us. So, long story short: We don't display deer heads out of disrespect or as a trophy of something we killed; We display them to remember how blessed we are.
These little gourds were grown in our little garden. If were being honest, they are the only things that really survived. We need a little practice in that department.
As always, I gathered items from around the home and only a small hand full of seasonal items I keep from year to year to freshen up our home this year.
Happy Fall Ya'll! Enjoy the cool weather, cozy time with your family, sweaters, hot chocolate, and pumpkin spice....everything!
So, What do you think? Should the trend die or live on a little longer?
