From 18th Century Elegance to La Calavera!


We've all heard the one about when the universe hands you lemons - make lemonade.  Well. when a favourite figurine gets broken - add a skull!!



I picked up the ceramic 18th century lady over 40 years in a small thrift store outside of Yucca Valley.  A week ago she fell off her shelf and decapitated herself (ala Marie Antoinette).


I had the ceramic sugar skull for a few years, it had broken off a dish that my younger daughter gave me.
And the colours of skull and lady were an absolute perfect match.


She makes a fantastic addition to my Mexicolor bathroom!

  5. bobbie - Could be, I got the idea from a friend of mine who had done the same sort of thing with a broken off head - she added a skull and voila!
