Interesting additions to your cabinet, Stephanie. Love the seed pods very much. I am not into skeletons so much but it is unbelievable that that delicate remnant made it to you all intact that way !
Happy Tuesday, Lovely One !

Have a great day,
Always, Queenie


Cool seed pods, Stephanie. I really like your idea of having a curiosity cabinet. I actually found myself peering more closely to your photo, trying to figure out what else is in that cabinet of yours. :)

love reading your comments and no, he didnt start the trip alive. the gecko was found mummified along a baseboard in a florida room in where else Winter Garden Fla. It was a long journey for him and I am so glad he arrived in one piece!


Ooo...LOVE those soft-shaped, heart-shaped pods. What are they actually? And I've never seen a gecko skeleton. Be sure to show us more when you add such curiosities to the cabinet. Happy Weekend, Stephanie :o) ((HUGS))


I, too, have a curiosity cabinet. Anything that sadly drowns in our pool, including deadly funnel web spiders, ends up in a jar in my cabinet. At first I preserved them in gin but my son now provides pure alcohol. I have snakes and lizards, as well as the spiders, and a few skeletons. Feathers, bones, leaves, pods; my grand children love having their own museum - and so do I.

A Year of Gratitude

  • A Year of Gratitude
    2016 is a potent year for me...sweet '16, it is my 60th year and since I made the decision to keep this blog going for at least another year I am going to use this as a daily gratitude practice. If you choose to visit and perhaps leave a comment I am grateful for that too.
