the Skull of my dreams

Happy Monday, friends! I hope you're fighting the beginning of the weekday blues and settling in to your workweek routine. Mine is the same as most: work, gym, chilling at home. So exciting, I know. But at least I can use the weekends to find things to make my home a little brighter... things like a long-coveted Sugar Skull.

I picked him up at one of my very favorite stores in my neighborhood: 3 Monkeys. And since I'm not quite sure of his permanent place in my home, I had him bunk up adjacent to the skull cocktail stirrers on the bar cart that I also got from 3 Monkeys in the interim.

Thought I'd make him pop like the glorious being he is.
Cocktail Stirrers to match- also from 3 Monkeys.

Ah, I just adore him! Skulls make me happy.

Happy Monday!

This is just too awesome!
Love it, so colorful & pretty.
The stir things go perfectly with it, & just in time for Halloween.

Some people think that a skull-obsession is super creepy, but I have always loved these kinds of skulls. They're artistic and super fun!
