While exploring through the deserts in west Texas several years ago, I came across this lovely gem. It had obvioulsy been out there a long time within the elements judging by state of the bones. I brought the skull home and cleaned it up as best as I could. I kept going back to it, exploring all the beautiful layers of bone that were exposed. Just a source of immeasurable wonder! I added a preserved floral crown using various Roses, Peony, Sola, Silver Brunia, Dusty Miller, Privet Berries, Felci Fern, and Tear Drop Eucalyptus. The color palette is a deep Raspberry, Cappuccino, Ivory, Antique Pink, Olive Green, Silver Blue, and Navy Blue. Measurements: 13w x 11d x 13 h Please read my shop policies before purchasing.

Tile Style THIS I like for the bathroom… After youve primed and painted your cabinets, add a little sparkle with tile. Lay out and trim mesh-back glass tile to fit the door panel. Apply tile adhesive to the door with a putty knife and adhere the tiles.
