A Bone to Pick

This bone harp by artist Evan Voelbel is actually made of cast, painted glass, which I think makes it all the more impressive.

Far too many gorgeous bone-related items at Modcloth right now. Sadly the awesome cardigan is out of stock, but sweater has such a beautiful design that it makes up for it.

When I saw this sweater from Le Bomb Shop I fell in love with it. At first I hesitated because that's more than I tend to spend on one item, but I couldn't stop thinking about it! So it's on its way to me now!

Wow, if only! From Oddly Custom Creations

And finally, if you're interested in specimen preservation, this video is a nice little intro to that. I had the privilege of helping a PhD student to prepare some taxidermy bird specimens for study once, and I have to say it's a very unique experience. It looks as though preparing a skeleton mount is much more time intensive than just preparing the skin. 

Too bad I don't have access to those helpful little dermestid beetles! They would have made cleaning my deer skull a little easier ;)

See you soon! <3
