Retribution

Do you remember how I naively believed I had gotten rid of the vestiges of Matt's sordid bachelorhood? Well, yesterday I learned just how mistaken I had been.

There I was, so caught up in the heat of the moment, so filled with hate for the unappealing lava lamp, that I neglected to consider what would eventually take it's place on the wall of Matt's music room.


Good Lord Almighty, that is...that's a...Honey where they HECK did this fish come from?



I mean...I guess technically it is only fair, he got rid of the lamp, and replaced it with a lake trout (so I am told, anyway), but GOOD GOD that thing is huge!

So, do you guys have any recommendations for how to decorate with trout? 'Cause I am at a loss here!

  1. My way of decorating my husband's various man items is simple. Contain it all to one room. I always tell him if he wants me to start putting pink, roses and doilies all over the place he can have his former live animals everywhere. So now I have about 30 formerly live animals in our office which is a 10x12 room. Not the prettiest but all contained!

  2. Hmmm...I would consider throwing a scarf over it. Or decorating it with Christmas lights. :-)

  4. Oh, I can't even imagine...short of "accidently" breaking it (never, ever ask my husband what became of his big Kodak clock...), I think your only other choice is to throw a blanket over it!

  5. I think it looks wonderful. I don't know why you would cover a symbol of such triumph over such a beast.

  6. I am sending over fishing rods, fishing vests, and ties. That should help coordinate things a little.

    Could it just not have a "accident" in a little while?

  7. You're talking to someone who has a fish AND a deer head mounted on the wall.

    Sigh.

  8. This is how I knew I would never be able to marry a hunter or fisher (or fisherman or whatever they're called). I could not handle this. Good luck decorating around it, I unfortunately have no ideas for you!

  9. Decorating with trout? .. well a necklace and a hat would be a start! Or you could build a box around it, or hide it under a tapestry...

    Otherwise you could go all the way and buy some nautical stuff like a ship, steering wheel.. or just put a swordfish head on the wall. That will take the attention away from that trout!

  10. Stuff an empty beer can in its mouth and call it a great conversation piece.
    Don't feel too bad. I have stuffed animal heads hanging in my house. I mean "trophies".

  11. Ha ha!! Boys! I have an agreement with my hubby that when we have our own place, he could have a bachelor room all to himself to put a pool table in and decorate with all of his manly stuff that will never be seen in regular rooms of the house. Of course this is a fictional home we speak of.

  12. Sorry! I still have the elk hoof gun rack in the corner of my office! At least you don't have that!

  13. This reminds me of the huge halibut tail (dyed gold btw) that I have to contend with. Lordy lordy.... I guess we went from Lava Wars into Bass Battles. Good luck!
