Taxidermy: Creepy Decor isn’t Just for Halloween

In honor of Halloween, Martha Stewart is sharing a photo gallery of her collection of taxidermy in a playful photo shoot in the playhouse at her famous Skylands home. I can appreciate taxidermy for its role in educating artists, scientists and regular old folks about the anatomy of animals and I’m happy to see that these antique specimen have found a home where they are valued. I’m not sure, however, that any mounted critters will be making their home on my mantle any time soon. Here in Texas, taxidermy is alive and well. Is your husband the hunting type? Any game trophies made it into your home? Do you welcome their addition to the decor or despise their presence? What do your kids think?
