I am too excited to type! I love every single detail on this box and especially that it was a soap box! How awesome is that? Such a great job! Really, kudos to you!

DonnaMundinger said...

Absolutely BRILLIANT, Julia! I'd have never guessed that was a soap box. Looks like a wooden chunky ATC. Fabulous image and those wings on the blood vile and skull feet are genius. (May have to "borrow" this idea, with full credit, of course.) xxD

You had my heart at vials of blood and feet of skulls super creative.

DogsMom said...

Great use of skulls!

Rick has such fantastic images but you put it all together in a very fanciful way.

Sarah Bales Strom said...

Another inspired (and inspiring!) project! I love the way you repurpose and upcycle everyday objects into fantastic projects.

This is great and what a way to use a soap box. The cute (cute??) little goblin reminds me of Peter Lorre for some reason
