On this Halloween day, I’m going to play favorites! Emilia has this organically creepy home, and it’s right up my alley: all bones, x-rays, and glass containers. I really just want to live in a natural history museum. This is a total fantasy home for me.
Emilia used planks from a barn door to create a display for hog-slaughtering knives. I just said that with a completely straight face.
This set of bone cancer x-ray slides became a simple piece of art/a window mobile. It’s easy to find sets of slides at thrift shops — this is a smart idea.
And — I’m not making this up — I’m always looking for ways to display my bone collection. Putting jaws and skulls in large jars is so simple and eye-catching.
A vignette: old radio and IKEA frame-based shadow boxes.
Thanks to Emilia for sharing this set — I’d have posted it either way, but what’s better for Halloween on Offbeat Home than a tour of medical equipment, gas masks, and bone fragments?
