I thrifted this weird dolls-head type thing many, many years ago. It’s so delightfully creepy. Never had flowers in it though, but I do keep my watercolor brushes there. Stil trying to keep up with the purple hair and also painting some acrylic skyscapes. All images from my Instagram account ByMaritaBliss some taken with my phone, some with my camera
