"I've got a Macrame hanging I made around that time into which are woven assorted animal bones, skulls, stones and other things from the Nature Table - Folk Horror at its finest. Never made an owl though..."

Folk horror nature table? I think I can outdo you with the time I began collecting dead crows (for skeletons and feathers). I hanged them out to dry on the huge resplendent ash tree in my mothers garden and quite a gothic sight it was.

Her vegetarian hunt-sab friend came in quite shaken from the garden one afternoon and commented on the mini display of feathered cadavers which were strung up in the branches.

As my mother was busy and distracted at the time she simply said that it was OK as they they were mine.
