Baby is here - at long last!!

Some moose left a few gifts on my front walkway.  I have a friend who LOVES moose.  She said she'd like some of what they left behind, but I didn't think customs would go over well shipping it into the US.  So I went out with a latex glove and rearranged and took a photo.  And yes, I know this is really bizarre.  Some people will be grossed out but if your mind works like mine (and my friend's) I think you'll get it. Cheesy

Okay, you ask for it by posting your lovely moose art.  I'm curious how large these things are?  And aren't moose considerate by leaving such neat and tidy droppings?  I thought it was some sort of seed pod before I read your text... lol

I would guess close to an inch long..they're not huge but they are very neat. Smiley  I totally missed seeing these ones go by the house - my hubby got home and asked me if I had seen them - he pointed out the droppings and I was amazed to think how close they were and I was home the whole time!  I especially wish my kids could have seen them out the front window...it would have been like being at the zoo.

You could always cast them in thick resin and make a paper weight or doorstop out of them...or you could do a stove top turd trivet, lol!  There's tons of ways you can prepare them so you can mail them, just get "creative", lol.

Ah, see if I were a resin artist, I bet that would have been a no-brainer!!  And she would have loved that.  But apparently I made her day by sending her the framed photo. Smiley  I love having weird friends.

I'll keep that in mind! Cheesy  Does that mean I have to save it all in my freezer or something??  Eeew.  Tongue

My brother was bitten by a rat about 30 years ago.  We had to keep the rat in the freezer for a few weeks ( some kind of back-up in case the rabies testing failed to show results).  Even though it was quadruple wrapped, it was very hard to eat things out of that freezer.  So no, I don't expect you to save them in your freezer.  You'll just have to lure a moose if we're ever partnered in a swap.

 Shocked  You are a braver woman than me...I NEVER would have touched those poops!  However, your photo and explanation made me giggle.  Also, we had a slight snowfall the other day and my daughter called me over to the window to look at something.  We live in a second floor apt., and in the neighbor's driveway, two cars must've pulled around leaving tire tracks that looked like TWO INTERTWINED HEARTS!  I took a photo of it too, and am using it as a Valentine's Day postcard.  Funny where you can find love!

Well, it was very cold when I was doing this so I wore a normal glove with a latex glove over it - plus the poop was all frozen anyway!  I love finding hearts in odd places - I found a rock once that was heart shaped...I still have it somewhere. Smiley

That is ADORABLE! I lived in Canada for a short stint and fell in love with moose. I took some turds, dried them out, and covered them in sealant and made key chains for my family! I don't think they appreciated them as much as I hoped.  Undecided

I have never seen a moose. *cry* I like the idea of casting them in resin; you should try that. (The moose gifts, not the moose)

I'm looking for Simplicity 6340 (the 1970's sailor dress). PM me if you've got a copy to swop or sell! Cheesy
