This has definitely been the year we've seen a lot of nature being used in home decor. I think it is something that we have really embraced or some of us are a little shy about some of it.
Antlers are a great example. Very popular and seems that you either love it or hate it. However since there are so many faux antlers, a few more people are on board. They are definitely used in a wide variety of decor designs and vignettes.
There's also the turtle shell that is making a huge splash in decor. Natural or painted, small or large, they are used in a ton of different way.I've definitely been on the fence as to how I personally feel about these elements. Sometimes I think I am a little squeemish when it comes to certain things.
I found this turtle shell at a garage sale and she had it displayed on a teacup hook, sitting on a chest. I love the wonderful detail of the design on the shell and the colors are stunning.
I thought for $3 it was a very different accessory and one that I might use somewhere.
I think it can probably be worked into several different displays, but for now I placed it in the bookcase.
It is a real shell, and as I said, sometimes I am a little squeemish, and this almost kept me from buying it. Am I just a sissy or what?
The Lord made this shell wonderful, and I do appreciate the beauty of it, so I will concentrate on that.
So, tell me, how do you feel about antlers, shells and other bits of nature? Like it, love it, hate it or no opinion?
