Dear Deer, A Love Letter

Rusty deer, Valentine's
Dear Deer.

I love you so.  I cannot put you away just yet.

You look more like a white tail deer than a reindeer anyway.

I want you in my life for several seasons, not just Christmas.

So I will welcome you with open arms.

Even though you are large and take up space.

At least I do not have to feed you.

Or clean up after you. 

Please do not leave me.

 I was thinking of you, Dear Deer, when shopping at the dollar store.

I found a felt red heart garland that seemed so perfect for you.

I know it was only one dollar, but it is the thought that counts.

And I bought you a gift before I bought Chucks a Valentine gift.

I think this will make a lovely scarf for you to wear in this cold, drafty house.

Red is a great color.  

It brings out the rust in your beautiful patina.

Oh, Dear Deer, you are simply magnificent in your Valentine scarf.

Love you forever,

Distressed Donna

Do y'all think I could find bunny ears for him.  Oh, wait a minute, he might be Irish and need an outfit for St. Pat's.

See y'all!

  1. Love it Donna! You know it's a great piece to leave out and decorate seasonally! LMBO that you got the deer a present before you got Chuck's one!

  2. Better hurry and buy Chuck a big box of chocolates before he gets his feelings hurt that you bought the deer something and nothing for him.
    I LOVE your Deer too and love your post too ... you are so funny.

  5. So funny, I would definitely leave him out too!!
