I figured I loved the little stag ornament and it would look adorable on my wall. I see a green staghead wall ornament and I want it painted black. Green though?.. Green? Nah.

School Photos School photos are an absolute must in my house. I’d recently spent £47 on a special long print of my sons primary one class that was framed – purely because I’d have to frame it myself anyway as it was such a long photo!
