    ^I think they would be vases, and they are so clever and cute. I really like the pieces you've chosen.

    I was given tons of nick knacks when I was little and loved them, they filled my room but now I hate them. I love minimalism, simple, soft and clean. Sort of Pottery Barn type minimalism though. Jill Stuart house and the photos Party Vixen posted are a dream for me. Not sure how that would work with small children but it's lovely.

    I had bright purple walls and a neon green,yellow and pink bedspread and Disney posters when I was 8. Loved it! ^_^

    ^I'd say they probably are :wink:... but deer and elk shed their antlers.. so the vegetarian in you doesn't really need to worry, they (most likely) aren't being harmed for them..:flower:

    Yeah, I've always had the vague understanding that antlers were naturally shed but I've never actually looked into it. I just googled it and it does seem that most antlers used for commercial/decorative purpose really do shed naturally, because to amputate the horns without killing the animal is a really risky procedure that requires a lot of skill and effort, and it takes about a year for the antlers to grow to full size anyway, at which point they fall off naturally.
