Roll the Bones

Roll the Bones

"Roll the bones" is historically a phrase that refers to rolling dice at the Craps table.  The masterful band Rush wrote a song about it that you can listen to here.  It's a phrase that has become synonymous with letting fate decide and dealing with the outcome once it happens.  Today, we will be talking about some of the bone figurines that Lemax has rolled out. 

#84345 Grim Reaper Tombstone

Gravestones with pun-y names are always a good time.  It's probably the best part about waiting in line at Disneyland's Haunted Mansion.  We got one of our own here, Mr. Cylas Ulysses Soon, and it looks like he was a good friend of the Grim Reaper.  Either that or Death is making sure that he stays in the ground.

#82571 Moonlight Stroll

Here we have an adorable, romantic piece.  Two skeletons taking their skele-dog out for a walk under the rising moon.  If you really want to complete the ambiance, we also have #44136 Lighted Moon, but it isn't really necessary.  It still goes well with our previous entry and our next entry all by themselves.

#34650 Tombstone Tree

Our final piece that we are highlighting this week is the Tombstone Tree.  This tree brings the whole scene together with it's eeriness and solemnity.  It's a very simple tree, but there are bones buried beneath it, which seems to have caused it to grow a little crooked.  There is one bird that enjoys the tree though.

All these pieces are less than fifteen dollars and come together to create a great little scene without taking up too much space.  None of them require power either, so you can set them up anywhere!  If you would like to add them to your Spooky Town village, they integrate perfectly with any other pieces.

Ice skating can be one of the most beautiful things to witness, but also one of the most painful to learn.  As anyone who has ice skated can attest to, it can make you very cold and very wet, very fast.  You also learn why hockey players wear all those pads.  You need a good sense of balance and to make sure that you don't give up.  It can be very daunting and there is a lot of room for quitting, but if you learn how, you get to glide around the rink like you're in a fairy tale.  Our piece this week from Lemax is just a tiny piece of that.

There's something inherently thrilling about gambling.  There's the obvious, you're betting money in the hopes of attaining more.  Since money has become so ingrained in our society and key to our survival, gambling means that you aren't just betting money.  Which is the part that is infinitely more thrilling and why, I believe, it is one of the oldest pass times in human existence.  This week we have a piece from Lemax that encapsulates that very same thrill.
