We Love Skulls and Night Time - our first month as Etsyers

I really do. I love Dragon skulls even more, I picked up this at a carboot sale for £6 because I couldn't find a nice one on the internet. They were all kinda tacky and cheap looking Except this dude. Bought on impulse, the original owner hadn't even taken it out of the box!

It resides on my fireplace normally! But there are things our mantlepiece we can't allow you to see... Yet.

What goes with dragon skulls and doesn't leave mug rings? Human Skull coasters!!!

From the seller:

"These coasters are made using hand-cut travertine stone tiles, 4" square 1/3" thick, and natural cork feet

Fact: The Colosseum in Rome is made almost entirely of travertine!

Full color Images are integrated to the stone surface using a multi-step process that I have perfected. I take great care, use the best products available, and spend the time needed, to ensure the most beautiful, highest quality stone coasters available.

The end result is a sharp, colorful image combined with the natural qualities, unique to each stone remaining unchanged.

Each stone tile is sealed on all sides, with several additional coats of a semi-matte protective sealant on the surface. The result is a smooth high quality finish that does not become tacky when wet.

We love internet humour and we want our bathroom to point and laugh at us while we do our business. I know I said "do one room at a time!" but I had to buy this hand towel to creep our guests out.
