In the five years since this post, have you done anything with the rest?Bought a box of over 100 of those ornate metal and glass beads today at the car booty, for £2. Y'know, the sort people make those gaudy bracelets with.
Only wanted a few to put on my bootlaces but hey, wasn't turning them down at that price!
My daughter loved her present, she thought it was very cool.The way things are going in today's world, I thought it was about time that Memento mori and Vanitas paintings made a comeback, so I bought this replica with an aim to use it as a model. It's cast from life (or death) but made of PVC. The top of the skull comes off as does the jawbone, which has a spring in case you want to do a spot of ventriloquism. Also comes with a handy chart with the names of all of the regions so I wont have to bother @EnolaGaia with daft anatomical questions.

Cute.Totally can't justify this but am missing the 3 of my 5 (grown up) sons who are not at home right now, and we couldn't be together on Mothers' Day either so I got myself this to wear til we're together (what it cost me, I'm comforting myself, is what we'd normally spend in about a week alone on petrol...) Also, am owed for some freelance work, so. Yes, I can justify this. And I've been ill! Ah total justification achieved...

Yithian, that's what I needed/wanted to hear. Cheers.Cute.
There's a worldwide disaster in action. Don't fret about the justification.
Beauty is a good antidote to gloom.
I can undertstand that.Yithian, that's what I needed/wanted to hear. Cheers.
Just missing the boys and feeling sad. Not showing it though. I don't have many pretty things or want them, as a rule. But that spoke to me.
Me and the older Brother used to shoot the youngest with plasticine (or maybe blue-tack) through a .22 air rifle...until Mum found the blisters on him and gave us a good leathering.I once bought myself one to torment my kids with, and it disappeared, and I later found it broken into bits at the end of the garden!
Trust someone from the building trade...if you wish to get rid of forum members and never have them come back, double-bag them and drop them in an Asbestos skip. Highly unlikely anyone will open the bags to see what’s inside.The rest contain forum members who went missing and have now returned...
