Feeling Busty?

It was literally months ago that I spied this fabulous, fanciful idea to adorn a wonderful vintage bust with a festive smattering of shells. I've not been able to get it out of my mind ever since. I love the craggy textures of those natural shells against the alabaster smooth carved busts. Such a dramatic statement!





Better still, I realized that we are busting at the seams (yes, pun intended) with these carved beauties in the MiNTY shop. I'm feeling a DIY coming on. How 'bout you? A little glue gun action and you too can have yourself a one-of-a-kind statement piece that will turn even the most bland corner of your home into a fine gallery. Take your pick....







The utterly breathtaking busts were spotted on And George. Take a peep at this post for all the details. And if you do not have a supply of sea shells readily at hand, visit the great land of eBay to stock up on every shape and size imaginable.

I'm not ashamed to say I love seashells. Ok, maybe a little ashamed...

Beautiful Nelya. You have gorgeous items in your store. I purchased one of those inlay jewelry boxes yesterday. I hope I get it on time before I leave to Brazil?:)

P.S. I posted about Minty yesterday in case you want to stop by and look at it.

Best,
Julie

Amazing busts, they reminds me of the Roman and Greek statues. They are great for garden and indoor decorations. Are they all made of marble? Thanks.

Excellent information and facts. Only real difficulty I was basically receiving was viewing the pics. No idea exactly why.
