It was so...so-so. Looks pretty good, but was not.
However, the next day I got an exciting delivery from Etsy.
First, the packaging (although not truly *first* in sequence, as it's clear I opened the box and then remembered to take pictures).
Isn't it cute? The seller turned a USPS priority mail box inside out, and decorated the outside.
When I opened the box, I saw this (okay not really because there were some styro peanuts in there, but I wasn't about to grab them out of the trash and reinsert them into the box when I remembered to take pictures):
Ooh look it's a blue paper package, tied up with string! This is definitely turning out to be one of my favorite things!
Cute little tag. I should have had these at my wedding.
I carefully peel back the tissue, to reveal...
Ta-Da! I lovey me this Day of the Dead skull.
oops, forgot to rotate. lazy am i.
Isn't it beautiful? I just love it so much. Lupe Flores has many other hand-painted skulls, prints and goth dolls that make you grin. I'm refraining from buying another one. At least at this time.
I'm very happy to have this skull as part of our Halloween decorations. Can't wait to show you how everything else plays out!
