okay, today is so way better than yesterday with regard to found objects. after weeding in the gardens for a few hours i came in to work on some ATCs i’m doing for two swaps with debrina and deryn. my little guy ran in to tell me that i was not allowed either a) in our back yard or b) in the basement because they were “excavating a present” for me. after about 20 minutes i got bored waiting for paint to dry so went back out to weed in the front, and oh my gosh! my husband “interrupted” my efforts and… yeah… i have the best, most amazing husband in the world, let me just tell you. look what he found for me buried in the back yard!!!:
he painstakingly dug up each and every one of these bones, cleaned the soil and some fur off, bleached them and re-rinsed them before setting them in the sun to dry. look at all of these! vertebrae, skull bits, portions of jaw, teeth and fangs, ribs, leg bones, a shoulder, and all kinds of bits. i’m going to have soooooooo much fun with these beauties!
our orange cat even found interest in them:
i’m super excited today. 🙂
