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