I Picked Antlers

When I was decorating the house for Christmas, a collection of deer antlers in the garage caught my eye. Three of them are from mule deer and are sizeable. I tied red cord around the ends and hung them with a large S-hook from my picking ladder that stands in our living room. It is from my home town and was used for many years to harvest citrus.  

I also took the antlers to school and the kids were very impressed!---as was a dad in a large pick-up truck who saw me taking them from my car. We read Imogene's Antlers, a fun story of a little girl who wakes up one morning to discover that she has grown antlers--big ones! caribou-sized! The kids enjoyed holding my antlers up to their heads and looking in the mirror.
