So I thought I'd give you a little tour of my collection.
My skull shelf in our lounge...
The hearts one I painted myself. The little white and black ones are actually salt and pepper shakers bought for me by my lovely friend Sam.
The silver one I found in a junk shop....
I had the amigurumi skulls made for me by the lovely Beth over at Fluffer Nutter Crafts.
The mugs were both gifts. The cream one was bought by my best friend and the pink one was bought for me by Tom's sister. I can't drink out of them though. I have a weird thing about odd shaped mugs.
I've had this skull stool for about 10 years! Anyone in Brighton remember Cissy Mo in the North Laines? I used to love that shop. For along time I wouldn't let anyone sit on this stool. I'm much less precious about it these days.
You may remember this slipper box from a while ago. My stepdad recovered it for me in this gorgeous Alexander Miller fabric.
This light shade is probably one of my favourite skull related items. It's quite subtle but such a great pattern.
The artwork on our walls doesn't escape either. Tom and I saw this picture in the British Museum and knew we had to get a print.
I was so excited when I found these embroidery patterns over at Polka and Bloom.
My best friend made me this amazing cross stitch. I absolutely love it and it's the first thing to greet people when they walk in our house.
I've even managed to get skulls in the bathroom. This amazing shower curtain was from Beadesaurus.
The kitchen only has a few skull related things. In fact - I think I need more. I got these great little tupperware boxes from Paperchase a few years back.
Of course, baking has to include skulls too.
Even our coasters have skulls on them although I'm yet to find any nice skull placemats.
Some cute little skull napkins also greet out visitors who come for dinner.
A very good friend of mine bought me this beautiful brooch for my Birthday. It is probably my favourite out of all of my skulls.
I use this skull lunchbox to house my make up.
Although I've had several given to me as gifts. So they also house my craft supplies.
Pretty much any drawer you open has something with a skull on it. Like these two cute little skull purses.
My jewellery box has a skull on it.
Of course I do have lots of skull jewellery too. I'm really picky about skull jewellery though.
This brooch was made for me and the ring was a gift for my birthday.
Some teeny tiny skull stud earrings.
I love this silk scarf - and it was from Peacocks in a sale!
Then of course there are the bags. I really love skull bags.
My feet can't be left out...
Even Tom has been roped in to my love of skulls. We both have skull key toppers for our house keys!
Do you collect anything? If you do - how come? What started it?
