I couldn’t tell you when or how this began but I can tell you we have an epidemic of skull decor going on in our home. I started glancing around one day and suddenly found myself counting how many pieces we had that either was a skull shape or had a skull on it.
Case in point.
Skull Salt and Pepper shakers from Target.
Skull pendants that I picked up at a flea market in New Orleans and turned into a necklace.
Doomed Skull shot glasses from Tapiture.
Skull dress from H&M kids. As seen in Today’s Parent Halloween costume ideas.
One of several – several – skull sweaters.
One pair of who knows how many pairs of skull earrings.
And a newly purchased Skull Candle from Target.
No really, Target. On clearance no less. I know!
None of this includes our Halloween decorations. Skull ice cube trays. Or stickers in my daughters room. Or her shoes with skulls all over them. I won’t even get into her Monster High backpack and t-shirts and dolls.
Oh wait maybe that’s who I can blame this on. The invasion of Monster High in the house. Sadly no. I am pretty sure this goes back to my love of Victorian Gothic decor which started years ago when I was a teenager. My husband has also always had shirts with skulls on them.
And in some strange way this all somehow fits into our Scandinavian farmhouse in the suburbs decor we have going on.
Can you relate? If so, I want to hear from you.
What do you have an abundance of in your house? Skulls? Cats? Birdcages? Cowboy hats? Leopard print? Gold? Glitter? Cowboy hats with glitter?
