And its give away time!!! Now that I’ve hit 555 followers, its time for free stuff! This give away is sponsored by my new shop The Pickled Fox! The winner will receive this super adorable mille fleur chick wet specimen as well as whatever other goodies I can fit in the box with it!

The Rules:

1) You must be following me! (No give away blogs!) Please don’t follow me simply for the sake of the give away, because that’s kind of rude and also would make me really sad to have lots of unfollows once the give away was over.

2) One reblog is all it takes to be entered, and just one reblog per day is allowed. I will check! No spamming your followers! You can reblog up to ten times, each reblog counts as one entry. The winner will be picked at random on April 20th!

3) I can only accept giveaway entries from the continental United States, sorry! I’ll work up something for my international followers soon!

For the evening crowd!

Pickled goodies!!!

Not quite finished… But you get the idea! Need to bleach them next but I’m pretty pleased with my first attempt 💀 #chickeninabottle #bones #curiosities #oddities #osteology #chicken #deadthings


Don’t bleach! Bleach will make the bones brittle. Soak them in hydrogen peroxide to whiten.

Ok, so in the first book of Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events, the children are playing at the beach. Mr. Poe arrives to inform them of their parents death.

How did he know where they were?!
There wasn’t exactly a note in the will about it.

As is so often the…

Thank you thank you. It’s been years since I read all the books and I restarted and immediately this bothered me!
