Oh, Deer!

Thanks to Alison at The Polohouse for hosting Favorites on the First! Click on her name for lots more collections! I tend to collect a lot of things, not just Nativities. I didn't realize I collected deer until I did this post recently. I also collect yellow depression glass, yellow rose tea cups, tea pots, anything with yellow roses, angels, roosters, and clocks! I keep a lot of these things packed away and only display them on certain occasions. I'm posting two of these collections since they are handy!
Oh, deer, Santa's reindeer must be exhausted from their long flight! I just love the stately reindeer and have accumulated enough to qualify for a "collection!"

I think I bought the gold deer above at Steinmart.

The one above is made from metal. I bought it several years ago from Home Interiors. We were at Pier 1 today, and they had a metal one similar to this, but more expensive!

I think this pretty white beaded deer below came from TJ Maxx:

I've had this pretty stately looking gold deer below for many years:

This large metal deer is atop our china cabinet in the dining room:
I couldn't get a true color of the wine colored wall, this one above is too purple looking.
The one below is too red!

This deer is carved from wood:

Another metal deer:

Now to some fun whimsical deer!

I think these two below are handmade, may have bought them at a craft show.
Their bodies are bells!

How funny is this big soft, fat, deer!!

These little deer are small soft toys, the grands enjoyed playing with them!

Small plush deer on wheels, and bigger one on rockers!

Don't they just make you smile?

How cool is this reindeer with leg warmers!! LOL!

The tall deer below is made of a straw-like material:

Do you have a favorite of my collection of deer?

I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and looking forward to a good New Year!

Katherine - Thanks for stopping by today. Lovely collection and it would be perfect for Alison's Favorites on the First. I see you already have her reminder posted. Just saw the Fiesta Christmas tree dishes a few days ago. I loved them! I grew up with the vintage Fiesta dishes in all the original colors so I'm kinda fond of them, and I prefer the old to the new. There is something about the tree collection that speaks to me so I just might have to grab a few sets. New follower too!

What a sweet collection of deer, Katherine! Those little whimsical ones do make me smile, but I really love the one from Home Interiors. The details on the saddle are so pretty.
Have never heard of that shop, is it a national one or just a local?

Might have to Google them!!
Thanks for sharing this with all of us! Keep them coming!


Such fabulous collection of deer, they're all so pretty. That Home Interior one is my fav! I love the whimsy ones too. Happy New Year.
