What the Heck is This?
I've been plowing through this little studio of mine attempting to clean, organize, and de-stash. Of course, I'm tackling the clutter between filling some orders and making inventory for this year's shows. So, when the work is in the pickle, I'm poking through bins and boxes.
I just found this in the "nature box" along with halved spiky peach pits (saving these to set in a necklace... someday), sponges, stones, fur, and the odd bone or two. As I recall, my father found a few of these floating in the Hudson River. He brought these home and presented them to his girls some 30 years ago. I can't believe that I have hung onto this for that long. Wow.
So, what is it? I have no bleeping idea. A seed pod would be my first guess. But from what tree? My second guess would be a shrunken alien head. If you know what this is, please enlighten this puzzled gal.
