My bull skull...transformed

This is an old bull skull I've had hanging in my house for many years...ya'll don't laugh!  It's a Texas thing.  Anyway a few months ago I hit on an estate sale and bought a whole box full of mismatched vintage jewelry, beads, and buttons for $5.  Guess where most of that stuff ended up?  Don't ask me why I thought all that stuff needed to be glued onto my bull skull but I kinda like the way it came out!  I don't look for this idea to appeal to very many people, but it just goes to show you that a $5 box of junk really can transform ANYTHING!  Who'd a thunk it?

FunktionalJunk writes: Ya'll are just too great! My whole entire family (of guys, no less) thought this was a horrible disgrace to the fine, masculine animal that this skull once belonged to. I thought it made it a little more bearable for me to keep looking at for the next however many years! I'm so glad there really are people out there who can see the funkiness in stuff like this! Thank ya'll!

I guess it's that old ah ha factor. This project screams ah ha! Very, very cool. Thanks so much for sharing. I also love Texas and can't wait to get back. I'll be kicking off my next book tour at The Marburger Farms Antiques Show in Round Top on March 31st Whoo hoo!

Be well,
