That’s right friends, it’s the “bones I found last weekend” post. So stop right here if you have no interest in vertebra, or leg bones, or some sort of mystery socket-like bone, or deer teeth… Yup, stop right here.
Actually here’s a picture for you, then you should stop.
I present to you – vertebrae! One is as large as my closed fist (elk). I’m thinking I should make a plaster vertebra from a cast of this one, to use as a paper weight… The jaw bone is deer, and the long skinny bone is an elk lower leg in really nice condition. These jewels will join my collection of found feathers, egg shards, rocks, sticks, nests and various other natural elements, probably heaped in a bowl or stacked in a glass jar. We recently acquired a beautiful old German-made curio cabinet at auction so I’m figuring out ways to fill it with these goodies. = )
The don’t actually go together like this – some are elk and some are deer – but it looks kinda neat. Here are the leg and and a close up of the jaw bone, and the mystery bone. If you know what it is, please let me know!
Finally the really cool hunk of wood I picked up – it’s over a foot long; Matt thinks I should mount colored glass behind each opening and create a magical staff or something. I’m thinking glass in the big hole and dream catcher in the smaller hole…
So what do you collect, natural or otherwise?
