Dem Bones, Dem Bones…. Dem dry ol’ bones…

Mr. County has to be one of the best human beings alive. He was kind enough to gift me with a box full of old bones and skulls.

They are cleaning up beautifully, and will be given a hydrogen peroxide bath soon! From a beaver skull to coyote, to mole to avian skulls… My Rauhnact/Yule came early!

 

This season of the dead has been eye opening to be sure, and it will stick in my mind for years to come. He also gave me a pair of mule deer antlers:

 

Will be cleaned and added to my altar! The photo does their size no justice – they’re HUGE!

 

There are some items I omit to add to this post, due to their sacred nature and privacy. Mr. County has made my year – all these items will forever be precious to me. No, they won’t be sold – gifts this dear won’t leave our family. Many will become fetishes, but kept and treasured all the same. A couple of surprises were in the box too:

I was gifted twice now, this one is tinier than the first! I feel very blessed!

 

Oh, I know what I will be up to next moon!

 

In fact, I was inspired by the beaver skull. I have a host of folklore and stories where the characters (short stories, fables, and folklore) are animals. They’re tucked away for the future minions. I am thinking of painting some of the skulls to reflect the stories. It’s just a thought I’m chewing on.

To add the cherry, I received my new sun-catchers from Aj, and a cool bracelet (that I’m wearing right now). They’re hanging in the kitchen, and my pooches are fascinated by the bracelet.

Thank you Aj! I love the little bubbles in them – they catch the light wonderfully!

 

Thank you Mr. County and Aj, for making today freakin’ awesome. Thank you for uplifting a crest-fallen soul. Truly.

  1. That’s quite a collection of bones! It will surely keep you busy spiritually speaking or not for a while!
    Is it a tiny frog skeleton that I saw above? It looks as fragile and fine as precious piece of handmade lace…

  2. I’m glad you like your gifts!
