Skulls

When we lived in Colorado, we stumbled upon an amazing Day of the Dead celebration at the Longmont Museum and Cultural Center, where, among other things, we got to decorate sugar skulls.




When Design Within Reach included a blown glass skull in their email today, it got me thinking about adorned skulls in art.

Maybe next year we'll make glitter skulls.

Happy Halloween!
